NGK Movie Review: Few memorable moments in an underwhelming Selvaraghavan film

“The state of today’s politics is best illustrated by a scene in NGK when the eponymous protagonist, Nanda Gopalan Kumaran (Suriya turning up, as always), returns to his family after consenting to join a political party. You’d think he just told them he’s been diagnosed with terminal illness.”

NOTA: This coming-of-age story doesn’t live up to its early promise

“It’s tempting to think of a Mudhalvan, whose protagonist too gets forced into the Chief Minister seat. And just as with that film, it’s important that you don’t really question the practicality of it all. These films are targeted at the impractical idealist, I suspect, resides in all of us.”
