Introduction: It been a long time since Tamil hero Suriya scored a hit in both Telugu and Tamil. His latest movie NGK is released in Telugu and Tamil. Let’s see if this movie can bring him the much-needed break.

Story: Nandagopala Krishna (NGK) is an M.Tech qualified and starts organic farming in his home town. In this process, he gets to work with a politician. There his bright talent shines well and he forays into politics with a noble aim. How did he succeed in his political pursuits and did he reach his goal forms the rest of the story?

Analysis: Political thrillers have become the current trend in South Cinema. But sadly there are no thrilling elements at all in this movie. However cliched the plot seems – a common becoming CM, the story or events the director penned seems quite silly and uninteresting. After he enters the politics, for the protagonist Suriya, there seems to be no formidable villains/opponents in the movie and he becomes the CM quite effortlessly. What did the director think? In the current age of practical movies, a director penned a script in this way and expects the movie to work? The first half looks so-so and the second half is unbearable. Finally, the story ends with a speech from Suriya. Suriya did his best to elevate the movie, but given the lack of content, the movie falls flat. His efforts are seriously wasted and it is high time, Suriya retrospects his movies. Rakul Preeth Singh looks beautiful and Sai Pallavi is okay. The director is outdated and nothing more about any aspect.

Finally: Huge disappointment.
