Nagaraja-Cholan-MA-MLA-1When a director comes up with a sequel to a movie that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and remembered for great characterization, the expectations go up without room for doubts.

The same had happened in the case of Nagaraja Cholan MA MLA, which is a sequel to the movie Amaithipadai, director by Manivannan with actor Sathyaraj in the lead role. The same combination has tried to recreate the magic, but the attempt seems to be an absolute failure.

Nagaraja Cholan (Sathyaraj) is a politician whose only ambition is to make as much money as he can in his political career. He grows from being an MLA to the post of Deputy Chief Minister. His illegitimate way of money making comes to trouble, as he tries to acquire land for a Swedish company, which is owned by a tribal community. An environment activist (Seeman) comes as a hindrance to his money making. What happens then, and what happens to Nagaraja Cholan and his political career forms the rest of the story.

Many important questions have been left unanswered by the director in this sequel to Amaithipadai movie. The character Ammavasai alias Nagaraja Cholan dies at the end of Amaithipadai, but the logic of his existence comes as a big question. Nagaraja Cholan MA MLA is not a prequel too. Nagaraja Cholan is never said to have a legitimate child in Amaithipadai, but he is shown having one here.

With such important questions left unanswered, the audiences try to get what they came for – the sadistic, pervasion type of characterization of Ammavasai and the witty one – liners from the director, Manivannan. However, what they are offered is a story that has not been done justice and a few not – so – great one – liners. Illogical moves in the name of twists further dampen the attempt. The music too comes as a spoiler for the proceedings.

If you expect another Amaithipadai from Manivannan, he clearly does not have one for you, but just a hardly entertaining political potboiler.
