Actor Suriya in still from the movie "NGK."

In the film, the lead character NGK (Suriya) is an environmental engineer who leaves his job to take up organic farming. He is a well-wisher who always has people welfare and progress in mind. The youngsters in his small town look up to him as a role model. The local politicians envy his reach among the youth. He lives with his loving and caring parents, and a possessive wife (Sai Pallavi), but the corrupt political system does not allow him to help the poor and needy people.

When an old politician Giri the character played by the actor Bala Singh tells him that he cannot make a change unless he joins a party and cleanse the system, NGK is forced to join a Dravidian party, tightly controlled by the leadership. And there he comes across Vaanathi (Rakul Preet Singh), a modern political analyst who specializes in election strategy.

In the mostly Tamil films of the filmmaker Selvaraghavan, women have strong roles. But here the actress Sai Pallavi's character looks forcefully added. Her onscreen appearance sometimes looks overreactive. However, Rakul Preet as the strategist and analyst looks appealing. The role of Rakul Preet was more challenging and well written. The film lacks a strong villain character. Music director Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score is not up to the mark, and the film songs don't fit in with the content. The first half of the movie is enjoyable, but the second half is quite predictable. There are lots of forcefully added fights scenes and stunt scenes which looks like an attached puzzle.

The trouble with the narration is that it is neither a proper Suriya entertainment film nor a Selvaraghavan extraordinary film. "NGK" film could have been better with a strong climax and strong storyline.
