Right from the time, Suriya’s NGK was announced, it did not create a good buzz in the Telugu states. The film directed by Selva Raghavan has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.


NGK(Nanda Gopal) is a well educated person who leaves behind his corporate job and does organic farming in his village. He does a lot of social service and keeps getting into trouble most of the time. In one particular issue, he observes that a small corporator in his town solves a major problem for him. This leaves NGK stunned and understand the fact that in order to do good for the people, politics is a big platform. He then enters politics and finally becomes a CM. How does he do all of that facing several obstacles is the crux of the film.


Surya has done his best in spite of an underdeveloped character. His emotional outburst in a few scenes stands out. Sai Pallavi gets a limited role that is also not written in a convincing way. She performs well, but the character makes her look ridiculous at times. Rakul Preet is good as the corporate politician. Senior actors like Devaraj and Ponvannan are good in their respective roles.

Plus Points:

Surya's performance in few scenes

Minus pints:


Technical Aspects:

Production values of the film are below par as the movie is filled with heavy Tamil flavor. Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is very bad but his BGM was good. Dialogues were just about okay and so was the Telugu dubbing. Production design was not good and so were the lyrics.

Coming to the director Selva Raghavan, he has lost it completely from the first ten minutes itself. His narration lacks clarity, focus and direction. Even after having an actor like Suriya, he failed to generate any drama with the proceedings. There is no seriousness in the script as scenes wander here and there making it a tedious watch for the audience.


On the whole, NGK is a simple political drama gone wrong. Lack of basic conflict, gripping drama, and entertainment are huge drawbacks for this film. Suriya needs to erase this film from his memory and choose a fun film to make a comeback as this movie does not provide the entertainment or thrill that you look forward to in a political thriller.
