Ponniyin Selvan – I (2022) Review – Sahil

September 30, 2022

Being an ardent admirer of Mani Ratnam Movies, I was super excited to watch this movie. The movie is a well crafted with an ideal ensemble cast. Mani Ratnam always excels in giving the best frames and this time too he never disappointed the spectators. Though I haven’t read the novel from which the film has been adapted I very much enjoyed the movie.

It is indeed very difficult to portray history because the film might appear boring to the spectators. That’s why directors most often take the aid of VFX and special effects to turn historical stories into fantasies. But we can see Maniratnam’s potential to create a movie which is neither fantasy nor artificial. All the actors have done their part very well and I can’t help mentioning the extraordinary beauty of Aishwarya Rai and Trisha.
The Tamil culture and the glory and power of the Chola dynasty has been rendered very well.

Eagerly waiting for PS-II
