Nagaram, directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, starring Sundeep Kishan and Regina Cassandra, has hit the theaters today. It is dubbed version of Tamil movie Maanagaram. Let’s see what is this about


The film is about the story of four characters in the city. A Graduate (Shri) comes to the city to earn 25000 Rs salary so that his people in the village will be proud of him. He meets HR (Regina Cassandra) who works in the same company. A unemployed youth (Sundeep Kishan) who leads carefree life will go to any extreme to win his lady love (Regina Cassandra). An aspiring gangster who lands himself and his gang in trouble by kidnapping wrong kid. A taxi driver (Charlie) who comes to city to give better medical treatment to his son.

Kidnap of famous rowdy’s son in the city changes all their lives and all of them get interconnected to each other. What happens to these characters forms the rest of the story.

What’s Good:

Sundeep Kishan
Second half
Background score

What’s Bad:

Love scenes between Sandeep & Regina


One of the Major assets of this movie is the racy screenplay, the director had done an excellent job with the narration and did not take too much cinematic liberties. Handling multiple stories and connecting them with an incident and making it believable is always a difficult job, but Lokesh had passed this test with flying colors. Except some boring scenes in between, the film keeps you engaged pretty well. The director also gives a mild message saying, if we take care of someone, someone will take care of us.

After a long time Sundeep Kishan had chosen nice role instead of focusing on commercial formula. He lives in the character and makes us believe the character. This film will definitely open up opportunities for Sundeep. At the end of the film, we realize that we do not know the character's names except PKP, but it does not matter, because of their genuine performance and impression of real life characters, which keeps us engaged.

Result: Engaging Crime Thriller.
