Tamil superstar Suriya’s latest film, Nanda Gopala Krishna, hit the big screens across the globe today.

The political thriller has a huge star cast, and Suriya is pinning high hopes on the film. The director, Selvaraghavan, is making a comeback after six long years. Will it be able to satisfy the audience? Let’s check it out.


Nanda Gopala Krishna is a typical guy who intends to help the ones around him. However, he frequently lands in troubles due to his attitude. In the process, he comes to know that becoming a politician is his best option to serve many people.

NGK kick-starts his political career and wishes to become the chief minister of the state. Will he be successful in this ambitious journey? What are the challenges that he will have to face? These answers are to be catched on the silver screens.


Suriya is a standout performer in any role, and this is no different. His portrayal of an innocent guy who goes on to make it big in politics is well and truly spectacular.

Sai Pallavi, much like her previous films, has given a very good performance. Her quirkiness adds more depth to the character.

Rakul Preet Singh looks beautiful even after her drastic transformation. Her chemistry with Suriya looks appealing and easy on the eye.

The supporting cast mostly consists of Tamil actors, and they perform to the best of their capabilities.

Technical Finesse:

Selvaraghavan is normally known for his unique narrative style, but he failed to extract even a decent output this time. Poor writing and illogical screenplay are to be blamed here.

Music by Yuvan Shankar Raja is just decent. But he excelled when it comes to re-recording. The vibe has been elevated in a few scenes, thanks to Yuvan’s impressive work.

Production designing is adequate, and the film looks as authentic as it can get.

Final Verdict:

NGK is a flawed political thriller that has very few things going it’s way. The screenplay is poor, and so is the narrative. The film gets way too confusing towards the end. However, Suriya and Sai Pallavi come up with great performances.
