A new film from renowned director Mari Selvaraj, Nayakudu (the Telugu equivalent of Maamannan), has just been released. Today, the film was released.
Story: Ramapuram’s MLA, Maharaju (Vadivelu), is a member of an oppressed group. He hasn’t spoken to his martial arts instructor son Raghu Veera (Udhayanidhi Stalin) in a long time. Raghu decides to pursue justice after an incident that occurs in Maharaju’s life. What is the problem? Why did they cease communicating with one another? The remainder of the story is made up of what actually occurred.
Performances: Additionally, after the main fight starts, Keerthy Suresh’s position, which seemed promising at first, is significantly diminished. Lal and Vijay Kumar’s characters don’t have a big impact on the movie. A few additional scenes involving them might have helped the movie add more drama.
Another problem is how the presenters handle scrollings and signboards. For better comprehension, Telugu text should have been used whenever it was essential.
Technicalities: The film’s ponderous narration detracts from the director Mari Selvaraj’s good message about the value of social justice. Some extraneous sequences might have been cut, and the editing could have been improved. Theni Eswar’s cinematography is outstanding, especially in the episode’s flashback. The music of AR Rahman significantly improves the film. A few of the tracks are good.
Analysis: The way Vadivelu portrays a serious political leader is one of the movie’s strongest points. He gave a faultless performance.
The portrayal of an egotistical politician by Fahadh Faasil is admirable and his performance is impressive.
Additionally, polished performances come from Udhayanidhi Stalin and Keerthy Suresh. In numerous situations, the music significantly enhances the film.
The film’s solid concept is marred by slow-moving writing, which is typical of Mari Selvaraj’s works. The movie may have been considerably enhanced with a more rapid screenplay.
Verdict: Nayakudu has a wonderful premise overall, however, the mediocre narration dulls the movie. The movie’s merits are the performances of Fahadh Faasil and Vadivelu, as well as the score by Rahman. This weekend, you can give the movie a shot if you can get beyond the tedious narration and a few pointless scenes, but keep your hopes modest.
