Performance: Suriya has delivered a solid and power packed performance. He has done complete justice to the role and viewers will be able to feel the intensity of his performance. He looks quite handsome as always. Rakul Preet Singh looks glamorous. She is a god on the screen. Sai Pallavi is ok. Devaraj as Killivalavan is fine. Bala Singh, Rajkumar, Nizhalgal Ravi, Uma Padmanabhan, Vela Ramamoorthy, Thalaivasal Vijay and Ilavarasu perform accordingly.
Technical: There are some highly emotional and intense sequences in the film. Some of the fight sequences are good. Cinematography is good. Songs have been shot colourfully. The screenplay is quite good in the first half. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score is decent. Coming on the work of director Selvaraghavan, he has succeeded in getting the intensity and the emotions right.
Analysis: Yuvan Shankar Raja's background score and Suriya's portrayal of NGK is astounding. NGK treats its women (Rakul Preet and Sai Pallavi) so well that among a group of henchmen, there are a few women who fight equally well. Overall NGK is a good entertaining political thriller drama.
