Social media is abuzz with tweets hailing comedy actor Sathish's latest outing Naai Sekar. To catch you up, the film written and directed by debutant Kishore Rajkumar follows a young man, whose soul gets swapped with a dog. Upon its release in theatres, the film received highly positive responses from audiences.
A number of renowned critics have also shared favourable reviews for the film on Twitter. Going by the reviews online looks like the film is an out and out laugh riot and will be able to keep the cash registers ringing at the box office. Moreover, Ajith's Valimai release postponement might also help the film garner more moolah at the box office. As of now, the film is having a stiff competition with Ashwin Kumar-Teju Ashwini's Enna Solla Pogirai, which has also been getting rave reviews from the cine-goers.
Coming back to Naai Sekar, backed by Kalpathi S Aghoram, Kalpathi S Ganesh and Kalpathi S Suresh under their production banner AGS Entertainment, the film has an ensemble cast including Pavithra Lakshmi, George Maryan, Ganesh, Livingston, Ilavarasu, Sriman, Gnanasambandam, Manobala and Swaminathan. A Labrador dog also plays a prominent role in the comedy film. The voice-over for the pooch was given by actor-comedian Shiva.
Meanwhile, check out what Twitterati have to say about the film.

#NaaiSekar: A jolly timepass flick centred on the fantasy idea of a man-dog role reversal. @actorsathish certainly has picked a different film for his hero avatar.— Kodiyil Oruvan Gokul (@GMGokulOfficial) January 13, 2022
Kids are the primary target audience@KishoreRajkumar delivers a wacky comedy tale with some eccentric characters.
#NaaiSekar: @anirudhofficial's #EdakkuModakku (An Anirudh single in the title credits itself👌) is a highlight in the 2nd half; @actorsathish dances well (@Siva_Kartikeyan lyrics, Sandy choreography)@itspavitralaksh is a cute Tamil speaking heroine— Kaushik LM (@LMKMovieManiac) January 13, 2022
Naai & Sekar both are heroes
