Naadodigal 2 (Eng: Nomads 2) is a 2020 Indian Tamil-language drama film written and directed by Samuthirakani and produced by S Nandagopal under the banner of Madras Enterprises. It stars Sasikumar and Anjali and Subhashini Kannan. The film released on 31 January 2020. The announcement of the film was made in early January 2018 by director Samuthirakani but denied earlier that the film will not be a sequel to the film Naadodigal. The production of the film went on floors in March 2018. Samuthirakani also revealed that the film would be quite similar to the first part but with a different storyline. The film’s soundtrack is composed by Justin Prabhakaran who earlier composed for the director’s Thondan, replacing Sundar C Babu who worked as the music director of the film’s predecessor.
The story revolves around Jeeva (Sasikumar, earnest in yet another role of an idealist), a social activist, who decides to begin a crusade against caste. Why? Because he and his fellow activists see a video of a honour killing. In the world of Samuthirakani, even the common act of viewing a video can be transformative. And so, he decides to conduct a conference gathering like-minded youngsters who abhor caste. But the leader of a caste party turns the event into a riot. Cue reference to the Jallikkattu protest.
On the night of his wedding, a social activist learns that the girl he has married was forced to agree to the marriage by her casteist family, and sends her off with her lover. But the girl’s family is determined to find the couple, murder them and uphold their caste pride. Can the activist and his ‘sago’s save them?
