Naadodigal 2: Loud & Preachy
Almost a decade ago came Naadodigal and Samuthirakani directorial that featured Sasikumar in the lead was a sleeper hit. With a different storyline, its sequel is out. The premise is different and making too. The movie is more an emotional drama and it is loaded with layers of messages as is the case in any Samuthirakani movie.
In a nutshell, the movie is about a girl disclosing on the first night of her wedding to her hubby that she had loved someone and it is marriage out of compulsion by her parents. The kind-hearted man goes all the way out to help her reunite. An emotional drama begins. The premise is apt for Samuthirakani to unleash dialogues that are loaded with messages.

Samuthirakani has packed the movie with a strong message on NEET, inter-caste marriages and even support to transgenders.
Packed with punches, the movie turns an emotional drama post interval. For those who watched, Naadodogal, the sequel may not be a match. But having said, Samuthirakanio has used Sasikumar’s on-screen image among women well to play an activist and romp homes with a message.
