Storyline

Nanda Gopal (Suriya) is a well-educated individual who believes in working for his people and surroundings. Leaving his high-paying, corporate job behind, he takes up organic farming and spreads the message of the right form of cultivation. This doesn't go well with few shopkeepers and other men whose business is getting affected because of Nanda's organic farming methods. They ask him to back off but he doesn't. On the other hand, one of his friends Raja is the right hand of the local MLA. He has several contacts and connections in the political world. When a few youngsters face trouble, Nanda decides to help them. But what seemed like a difficult task for him, Raja solves it in a second with only a phone call. This fascinates Nanda and he decides to join politics and establish connections as well. But this is not a simple thing and many obstacles block his path. With the motivation from his wife, Geetha, he tries to tackle all of them. But when Vanathi (Rakul Preet Singh) enters his life, will his equation with Geetha (Sai Pallavi) change? Will he ever make it big in the political world? Nanda's political career and how his journey changes him as a person forms the crux of the story.

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 right away and choose a fun film to make a comeback as NGK does not provide the entertainment or thrill that you look forward to in a political thriller.

NGK goes for a toss with its larger-than-life moments.There definitely are some true-to-life scenes but they are few and far between.The rise of NGK in the filthy and merciless world of politics is hardly convincing.

For the past few years, Suriya has found himself at crossroads. After demonstrating his box office pull in the late 2000s with films like Ayan and Singam, he has been trying hard to fit into scripts that serve both the actor and the star in him. While the films he did with new-age directors like Venkat Prabhu (Massu Engira Masilamani), Vikram K Kumar (24, inarguably, his best film this decade) and Vignesh ShivN (Thaanaa Serndha Koottam) did not work at the box office, even the ones with proven commercial filmmakers like Hari (Si3) and Lingusamy (Anjaan) haven’t had any impact. Which is why news of him collaborating with a unique filmmaker like Selvaraghavan felt both exciting and unnerving. Unfortunately, their film, NGK, is a letdown, and doesn’t fulfill any of the promises it has on paper. But the fault, this time, squarely lies with the director than the star, who is the best thing in the film. As the titular NGK (Nanda Gopalan Kumaran), Suriya valiantly tries to inject life into a flaccid script that cannot if it wants to be a political wish-fulfillment fantasy like NOTA or a grounded political drama like Aayitha Ezhuthu that exposes the ‘system’ for what it is. Much like he did with his gangster epic Pudhupettai, Selvaraghavan tries to construct NGK as the journey of an individual from the lower rungs in the system to the very top. But unlike in that film, he fails to give us engaging – and convincing – situations that chart this rise. We hardly feel any emotion when the highly educated organic farmer NGK is coerced into joining a political party. The scenes where he starts learning the ropes, as an underling to an MLA (Ilavarasu), come across as unintentional black comedy. And we don’t get how he manages to turn the tables against some of the most cunning politicians. We are simply asked to believe because he is an educated guy. The film’s tonal inconsistencies are jarring. Selvaraghavan’s representation of the political set-up – as something that is mainly PR-driven – seems simplistic. The opponents that NGK has to cross to achieve his goal are generic, underwritten characters and are played by actors (Ponvannan and Devaraj) who lack the charisma to make them feel powerful. Selvaraghavan even fails to give us solid female characters, something that he is known for. The characters of Sai Pallavi, as NGK’s wife Geetha, and Rakul Preet Singh, as a PR strategist with whom he enters into an extra-marital relationship, are the weakest links in the film. While the NGK-Geetha relationship seems farcical, the latter comes across as something that belongs in a different film. To make matters worse, we even get an out-of-nowhere song that increases our frustration. If we end up enduring the two-and-a-half hours, it is mainly because of Suriya who gives it his all, acting the hell out during the actorly portions and playing to the gallery whenever he is required to turn on his charm.
