Naan Rajavaga Pogiren is one of the latest movies to hit the screens for this weekend. The movie stars actor Nagul in double roles. Double role plots are not new in the history of Tamil cinema, but still the double role flavor adds a spice to the cinema according to the filmmakers. Even the recent flicks like Maattraan did have the double role impact. Naan Rajavaga Pogiren has some of its moments, but still the movie fails to deliver the audiences’ money’s worth, as the content is nothing new to them.
Jeeva (Nagul) is a guy from Himachal Pradesh, who comes to know that there is a look alike of him somewhere in Chennai. Jeeva comes in search of his look alike, whose name is Raja (Nagul). However, Jeeva is thought as Raja and is chased by a gang of men start to chase Jeeva. Now, Jeeva’s task is to find out who those men are and why they chase Raja. More importantly, he has to run for his life before nailing down the truth.
Director Prithviraj Rajkumar tries to make some sense in showing respect to the audiences. He has not tried anything out of the league of good cinema audiences. No commercial sequences that take a dig at the common sense and logic. However, the director fails to deliver enough, which could have been a satisfying watch for the audiences.
The narration is revealed in terms of conversation but the director could have concentrated more as the movie appears to be a bit preachy at times. The movie also appears to be a rushed and hurry burry work, as the director has so much to say to the audiences within the edited movie time.
Nakul portrays his roles pretty well and the heroine role played by Chandni too looks effective.
A little more concentration could have made Naan Rajavaga Pogiren worth watching!
