NGK Movie Review: This is Selvaraghavan’s most simplistic movie which can be a problem.Modified On: 31 May 2019 | Reviewed By: Saurabh S Nair
Surya has done a brilliant job in the acting department but the director was busy making Shankar-Murugadoss style film ignoring his traits.
While watching NGK, it felt that it’s a filtered version of Pudhupettai. If you remove the grey shades of Kokki Kumar and sent to him in dirty field of politics he might turn into Nandha Gopalan Kumaran.
Kumaran is well educated and leaves his job to do social service for the people and opens an organic farming shop for the people.
But people who are against him supporting organic farming destroy his shop and vandalize the locality where Kumaran stays.
This changes his life and due to circumstances he joins a political party which leads to his rise in politics is the plot of the story.
The issue with the film is it doesn’t have a character arc for other characters. Selvaraghavan is known for his women characters but here he failed to give a strong women character.
Though Rakul Preet’s character showed some spark but her character reduced to romantic angle and an unnecessary song sequence.
Sai Pallavi’s character too was reduced to a clichéd wife who doubts her husband.
The movie contains only two fight sequences which are well choreographed.
NGK is a good political thriller and the concept of the film is quite appreciable but the film lacks strong characters which we expect from a political film.
If you are a Suriya and Selvaraghavan film fan then you can bare this film.
