Nayyapudai is a 2016 Tamil drama movie directed by Vijay Kiran. The film stars S. A. Chandrasekhar, Pa. Vijay and Chandini Tamilarasan in the leading roles. The film began production during November 2015, and was released in February 2016. Actress Chandini takes the spot of the female lead while MS Bhaskar, Viji and Mottai Rajendran will be part of the cast list.
Director-actor S. A. Chandrasekhar plays a 73-year-old man in Nayyapudai , marking his first full-length role. “As I am 70-years-old, this role of a 73-year-old is quite relatable. The character I play is a strict disciplinarian and a systematic person. He’s an army veteran in this intense drama loaded with social messages. And… there’s some action too.”
Nayyapudai is an action-entertainer that you can watch one time for SAC’s impressive performance.
It was director Vijaya who convinced Chandrasekhar to take up this role. About his character in the film he says, I play a retired army officer in the film who learns to cope with the challenges in life. There will be this one incident that will change things for ever in his life. The movie is a commercial entertainer but, like my previous movies, it will have a pressing message for the audience.
