NGK was recently censored with a U certificate, much to the surprise of movie buffs, as director Selvaraghavan’s films are usually either certified A or UA. It’s evident that he has toned down his style to make a film suitable to the family-friendly image of lead hero Suriya. The list of cuts that the censor board gave to NGK has been released online. All the cuts are dialogue mutes, citing public decency, as the muted words fall under the category of cuss words. The final censored run time of NGK is 2 hours 28 minutes. Editor Praveen KL came on board the film after the initially booked editor GK Prasanna walked out in the initial stages of the film itself.
NGK will be having a huge release all over the world coming Friday with premiere shows scheduled for Thursday night in the USA. It’ll be the first Tamil film to be released in South Korea. Other usual overseas territories will also be screening the film with a good screen count.
The Telugu dubbed version will also be released simultaneously on May 31st. The NGK team will be attending a pre-release event in Hyderabad tomorrow, May 28th. The immense popularity of the lead trio of Suriya, Sai Pallavi and Rakul makes NGK a lucrative prospect in the Tollywood trade as well.
In TN, NGK will mostly be an own release by the producers through leading distributors in the various territories. It’s the last big film, as the summer vacation comes to an end and with schools set to reopen in early June. The trade will be looking at a good opening weekend and if the talk is good, NGK will be looking to capitalize on the Eid holidays and have a good 2nd weekend too. Let’s see how it goes!Read More
