Sathyaraj was last seen in Vijay starrer blockbuster Nanban. Now, he is returning in the lead role with Nagaraja Cholan MA, MLA, a sequel to his blockbuster 1994 film Amaithi Padai.

Amaithi Padai was one of the biggest hits of Sathyaraj's career. The film directed by Manivannan was considered to be one of the best political film in Tamil film industry. Sathyaraj was seen in dual roles of which Nagaraja Cholan was one of the character's name in the film.

Hence, Nagaraja Cholan has been named for the latest instalment. The movie also marks 50th venture of the director and the 200th milestone film of Sathyaraj. Well, one more underling point is that their combo had earlier delivered a couple of hits. So, people are expecting something big from them. Let us see whether they have recreated the Amaithi Padai. Read on for the review...

Director Manivannan has once again churned out a political satire. Like his Amaithi Padai, Nagaraja Cholan MA, MLA too revolves around the contemporary politics. He has taken a few incidents from the present situation. The story kick-starts from where Amaithi Padai had ended.

We had earlier seen how nomad Amavasai becomes a successful politician through wrong way in Amaithi Padai and changed his name to Nagaraja Cholan for political mileage. In the latest instalment, he turns Deputy Chief Minister of the state. We will also get to see some important roles played by Seeman, Raghuvannan (Son of Manivannan), Komal Sharma and Mridula. The politicial games, Amavasai's wicked plans and tantrums shown by him laced with modern-day political developments form the subject of the story. Will Amavasai pay a price for playing greedy politics? You have to watch the film to know this. Continue reading the review on the slideshow...

Nagaraja Cholan MA, MLA Review

Nagaraja Cholan MA, MLA is no match to Amaithi Padai. The characterisation is also not strong comparatively to the first instalment. The film takes potshots at modern-day politicians. Well, the first half is short and will end in less than an hour.

Scenes are not well-written at parts. Adding to it, some songs and characters add salt to the injury. However, the performances of the lead stars and dialogues are the big plus of the film.

Nagaraja Cholan MA, MLA Review

Sathyaraj, Seeman and Manivannan have given their best. In fact, their acting is a treat to watch. Sathyaraj's body languages and dialogue delivery will be praised. Not to forget his comedy timings. Raghuvannan, Komal, Mrudula, Varsha and others have done justice to their roles.

James Vasanthan's music is disappointing. Only 'Viraivil vidiyum...' is good in the album. D Sankar's cinematography is neat, but R Sudharshan's editing work could have been a lot better had he mercilessly removed unwanted scenes. Dialogues are strong and wins audience applause at parts. Last but not least, don't miss the end credits.

Verdict: Watch Nagaraja Cholan MA, MLA for Sathyaraj's performance and wonderful one-liners.
