Film Review: Naai Sekar Returns

 Lyca Productions' Naai Sekar Returns hit theatres on Dec 9th. The film is Vadivelu's comeback after a long hiatus, directed by Suraaj. Sekar is a guy who catches dogs of the affluent and holds them for ransom. But not being good at it, he usually fails miserably most of the time.  What happens when he hears of his own childhood dog who had disappeared? Can he now rescue the dog he considered his lucky charm ? The production design is rich and vibrant. The film seeks to rely on the Vadivelu nostalgia factor to entertain audiences and that's the USP as the ace comedian doesnt disappoint.  Undoubtedly he  is a livewire entertainer and seeing him on the screen brings back the memories of his hey days. Santhosh Narayanan's bgm is a big plus. Redin Kingsley, Shivangi, Shivaani, Ramar, Bala, Seshu and others offer ample support with their comic capers. Anand Raj's one liners and Sachu are a big plus as well. His combo scenes with Vadivelu are fun t
