Ponniyin Selvan may not match Bahubali in extravagance, but it will be no less interesting

In a year when we had pan-Indian blockbusters from South India like RRRKGF-2 and Vikramone more competitor is approaching. Ponniyin Selvan 1based on one of the most beloved Tamil stories of the same name, it is scheduled for a theatrical release on September 30th. Directed by director Mani Ratnam, the film has been a labor of love, and stars, among others, Vikram, Karthi, Trisha, Jayaram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi and Sobhita Dhulipala.

Many big names in the Tamil film industry, from MGR to Kamal Haasan, wanted to bring Ponniyin Selvan to celluloid. But all these efforts did not bear fruit for several reasons. Ultimately, it is Mani Ratnam’s determination and steadfastness that is bringing out the novel by writer Kalki, which was first serialized in the magazine’s issues. Kalki from October 29, 1950 to May 16, 1954, for the movie screen.
