Vijay Deverakonda in NOTA
Vijay Deverakonda stars NOTA.Twitter

Tollywood's youth sensation Vijay Deverakonda is entering Tamil film industry with his bilingual NOTA. Anand Shankar, who directed movies like Arima Nambi and Irumugan, has helmed the movie, which has Mehreen Pirzada in the female lead.

Veteran actors like Sathyaraj, Nassar, Bigg Boss Tamil contestant Yashika Aannand, MS Bhaskar and others are in the supporting cast. Sam CS has composed the music, Santhana Krishnan and Ravichandran have handled the cinematography department, while Raymond Derrick Crasta has edited the flick.

Varun (Vijay Deverakonda) is an irresponsible guy, who has returned to Chennai from abroad. As in political thrillers, he accidentally forays into politics and turns the Chief Minister of the state. His nature is not tailor made for the politics, but he understands the politics and he adapts to a difficult situation. The story will be spiced up with political innuendos from the present political situation of the country.

There is a lot of expectations riding on the movie after Vijay Deverakonda's last two movies – Arjun Reddy and Geetha Govindam – turned out to be blockbusters. Not just in Andhra, he is having decent following in Tamil Nadu as well. As a result, the film has been made in Kollywood.
Will the film live up to the expectations? Find out from the viewers'' words below:

Sreedhar Pillai: #NOTA is a gripping and racy political thriller from @anandshank. The film is highly topical and will connect with the audiences. U cant take your eyes off @TheDeverakonda, he is riveting as he turns from #DummyCM to #RowdyCM, #Nasser & #Sathyaraj r impressive.

Richard Mahesh R: #NOTA comes too late in time reflecting the political scenario of TN in past 2 years. Amateur in presentation. Lots of promising actors not utilised properly. Not at all engaging though gist is appreciable

Christopher Kanagaraj: #NOTA - 'No' da Even gud performers like VD, Satyaraj & Nasser couldnt save tis one. VD's swag missing. Namesake heroine Mehren. Few scenes related to current politics r gud. Content s okay, but sloppy screenplay creates 0 impact & fail 2 connect. Worst songs. Disappointment!

Sridevi Sreedhar: A mass entertainer which will keep u engaged at a crisp running time of 146 mints. Kudos @anandshank for a neat screenplay & not making this political thriller into cliched commercial potboiler. @TheDeverakonda is perfect choice as the protagonist

Venkatramanan‏ @VenkatRamanan: #NOTA - Crisp, political drama goes with the flow. @TheDeverakonda gets a warm welcome with this content in Tamil. Gives the instance of current, seen political scenario.

Review Ram‏ @MovieReviewRam: #NOTA - Interval - Has few powerful moments that suits the current Political scenario. #VijayDeverakonda is impressive. Has problems with dialogues which a bilingual usually carry, progression becomes slow after a speed start. Game begins at the break-point. 'Watchable' so far

Kaushik LM @LMKMovieManiac: #NOTA 1st half - Going good. Interesting, gripping political drama by @anandshank. @TheDeverakonda as the #RowdyCM is highly convincing. The ever-dependable Sathyaraj and Sanchana Natarajan are impressive too.. @samcsmusic's BGM score suits the film's grandeur and scale. #NOTA 1st half - Some of the political scenes and dialogues are connecting well with the crowd, getting applause. Relevant to the political climate in the South.

Rajasekar @sekartweets: #NOTA first half- A relevant political drama highlighting some of the important political happenings in Tamil Nadu. @TheDeverakonda shines as the Rowdy CM.

Sidhu‏ @sidhuwrites: #NOTA Interval: Quite interesting so far. @anandshank sets up the premise nicely with a political backdrop that suits our own situation. Smooth sailing.

Prashanth Rangaswamy @itisprashanth: #NOTA Interval - Commercial dark horse . @TheDeverakonda erangi adikuraapdi. This week is magic or what ?? . This movie will be a single screen delight. All tamilnadu political parties total damage. Lot of meme material inside.

Sreedhar Pillai: #NOTA is a gripping and racy political thriller from @anandshank. The film is highly topical and will connect with the audiences. U cant take your eyes off @TheDeverakonda, he is riveting as he turns from #DummyCM to #RowdyCM, #Nasser & #Sathyaraj r impressive.

Shankar: #NOTA - A Complete political drama where #Sathyaraj & #Nasser scores high time in the film. @TheDeverakonda 's script selection made him a Real #Rowdy attire in southern film industries ! Kudos @anandshank for introducing a #RowdyCM in Tamil Industry. @SamCSmusic @StudioGreen2

Karthik22VJ: 1st Half director portrayed Well about Fu*** Politicians & Just Brutally raped Ongoing politics Huge Hospitality for ROWDY CM @TheDeverakonda #NOTA @StudioGreen2

Be true: @VijayDevarkonda #NOTA #NOTAReview True review. VD as usual as his best..mass. Tamil audience enjoyed till end as they know its thier political story. Telugu audience enjoyed till interval and got bored after interval due to unaware of whats happening at TN. Anyways a hit..

Mridula Ramadugu: Watching #NOTA & this @TheDeverakonda I tell you. Give him any role & he fits the bill so bloody well! With this Tamil debut, he carries of a new language too quite impressively. The reluctant politician, the political drama with sound content and supporting roles, all work well.

Aryaa: #NOTA - The best political thriller in recent times. Can't take off my eyes from this man @TheDeverakonda for a sec Will be a superhit entry to Tamil Cinema. Time to start a TN Rowdy club soon #Notafromtoday

CinemaPichhi: #NOTA - Good 1st Half and Below Average 2nd Half #VijayDeverakonda tried his best but sadly over the top second half killed the movie completely #RowdyCM or Tamizh Arasiyal should be the perfect title instead of NOTA. It might work in Tamil but not in Telugu 'NOT'A Good Atempt

VCD tweets: #NOTA First Half - Very good premise for a Political Action Drama, trolls all the recent political happenings, but the 'Already Seen' treatment and situations aren't helping the film much. Decent so far. #NOTA First Half - This man hasn't done even one straight film in Tamil and the love he gets from here is something unbelievable. Early morning shows, crowd cheering up and receiving his screen presence well. #NOTA - Seeing the title and trailers, thought this film will have a good take on how the society should be changed. Instead, it just revovles around the clash between ruling party and opposite party with predictable twists and cliched characters. Trolling works well. Average.

Sai Ramakrishna: Saw #NOTA wow super Political Game Vijay Devarkodu anna , Sathya raj , nassar Vera level Performance.. @SamCSmusic BGM @anandshank vera level story , plot @TheDeverakonda Welcome to Kollywood @VettriTheatres @Trendswoodcom @cinemapayyan @StudioGreen2 @
