Nayyapudai is a 2016 Tamil drama film 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.
The project materialised in late 2015 with Kalaipuli S. Thanu offering young director, Vijaya Kiran, the opportunity to make his first film. Pa. Vijay, Chandini Tamilarasan and S. A. Chandrasekhar signed on to play the lead roles. Chandrasekhar revealed he would portray a 70-year-old character in the film and would be a disciplinarian who works with Vijay, who appears as a journalist. The film was launched in December 2015 at Prasad Labs and filming started thereafter, with the team releasing promotional stills in early 2016. Prior to the release of the film, S. Thanu sold his rights to Cosmo Village, while 6Face Studios were announced as the sole producer.
The film opened to mixed reviews from critics, with a reviewer from Indiaglitz.com adding it is "an uninspiring film saved to an extent by SAC's acting". Subsequently, the film did not perform well at the box office and took a poor opening in Chennai in its opening weekend.
