Nayakadu has laid a new and unique path in Indian cinema, particularly in gangster films. Though the film has taken some inspiration from The Godfather, Mani Ratnam made it strictly for the Indian audience in his own style. The slums of Bombay are perfectly portrayed in the film. Here, all the technical aspects of the film need to be applauded, along with Mani Ratnam. While coming to Kamal Haasan, Nayakudu is one of his best works, both in terms of performance and content of the film.
