Review: NGK

Star hero Suriya’s political thriller, NGK has created a decent buzz among the trade circles with its promos. Directed by Selvaraghavan, the film has hit the screens all over today. Let’s check how it is.


After witnessing the power of politics and their impact on society, an organic farmer Nanda Gopal Krishna (Suriya) embarks his political journey by joining a political party. What kind of experiences will NGK come across in his journey? How will he be able to handle all the situations and emerge as a victorious in the tough path? To know this, you have to watch the film in the theaters near you.


Director Selvaraghavan’s idea of making a political film based on contemporary politics is nice but his execution part has a few drawbacks. The drama and rivalry showcased in the second half are not at all convincing.

Performance wise, Suriya is top class with his performance and showed good variations in the character which has multiple shades. His acting and screen presence are saving grace for this slowed paced film. Sai Pallavi is decent in her role as Suriya wife but sadly she has no scope to perform in his limited screen time.

Rakul Preet Singh is good as a corporate Boss lady and did her part nicely. A few crucial scenes Suriya and Rakul have come out well.

Plus Points:


Minus Points:

Second half
Confusing narration


All in all, NGK is a new age political thriller which has an appealing narration in the first half. Suriya’s honest acting and his screen presence bring life to the proceedings but the slow and flat second half makes it a below average fare.
