Nanda Gopal Kumar (Surya), a well educated person puts his country first and cannot tolerate any injustice and malpractices. He quits his white collared job and inspires many to do organic farming.
However few developments in his personal and professional life, finds him in the murky politics. To findout the journey of NGK in politics and how it affects his family life with his wife Geeta (Sai Pallavi) and parents, what is the connection with Vanita (Rakul Preet Singh), enjoy Nanda Gopala Kumar on screen.
Surya once again has given his best performance. He is so good with his expressions and emotions with his screen presence. His character arc is build in such a way that even he couldn't power it to the next level.
Sai Pallavi the powerhouse talent did not get much scope to perform and in many scenes, she was annoying with her over top action. In couple of scenes, she came with cute and lovely expressions. However, her role is a letdown
Rakul Preet Singh just passed through the motions and didn’t add any value to the movie. Others like Devaraj, Ponannan and Vela Ramamoorthy performed according to their roles which turned out to be routine.
Selva Raghavan who is known for his realistic entertainers decided to connect chords with movie lovers with a message oriented powerful political entertainer.
However right from the start to finish he came with routine scenes copy pasting from the earlier films which viewers are used to watch since the 80s till date.
Dialogues areroutine , story, screenplay and direction turned out to be the bane of NGK. Lack of good twists and turns along with unwanted scenes in the name of comedy tested the patience of the movie lovers. NGK has got nothing to offer for A centres and even B,C centres will find it hard to connect. Overall it will end up as another disappointment for Surya who is waiting for solid hit.
Yuvan Shankar Raja elevated the scenes with his thumping background score. The songs are full of tamil flavor and couple of them acted as speedbrakers. Praveen.K.L's editing left a lot to be desired. There are many drags in the film which tested the patience of the movie lovers. Siva Kumar Vijayan's cinematography beautified the film. Director Selva Raghavan could have added few more twists and turns after working on the script before proceeding ahead. Production values are good.
NGK fails to give kick.
