Sasikumar & P. Samuthirakani's " Naadodigal 2 " Social Reforms .

Naadodigal 2 is an Indian Tamil drama film written and directed by P. Samuthirakani and produced by S .Nandagopal under the banner of Madras Enterprises . It stars like Sasikumar as Jeeva , Angali as Sengodi , Athulya Ravi as Soumya ,Bharani as Pandi ,Namo Narayana as Sellie Chinnamani .Music by : Justin Prabhakaran , Cinematography : NK Ekambaran , Edited by A.L Ramesh .

Sasikumar in a role modelled on his most famous one from 'Nadodigal' is back in full form and even the on the face messages that he delivers sound true coming from him.  Anjali the seasoned performer is in her elements as the social activist doctor in thankfully a role that is equal to the hero in every possible way including action scenes.  

What works best in 'Nadodigal 2' is the strong messages against casteism and the bold commentaries on the treatment given to those who fight for social reforms.  A sequence showing a transgender Namitha as a crusader who becomes a cop is truly touching .

On the downside the freshness present in the screenplay of 'Nadodigal' is missing here and so is the high humour quotient.  The action sequences are over the top and don't gel with the other parts. 

Justin Prabhakaran's songs are a part of the story and are very pleasant on the years with his background also in sync with the proceedings with the iconic "Sambo Shiva Sambo" as a bonus in the climax.  

Samuthirakani has tried to weave in the core elements of the original to his social reforms theories and succeeds to a certain extent.
