October 13, 2022

This week on The Late Take, Anupama Chopra & Anmol Jamwal aka @Tried&Refused Productions come together to share their thoughts about Vikram Vedha, Ponniyin Selvan: I, Kantara, and early expectations from Adipurush.

In the 11th and 12th centuries, Southern India was ruled by the Cheras, Cholas, Pandyas, Pallavas, Hoysalas and other dynasties. The film opens on the Chola crown prince Aditha Karikalan (Vikram) and his army being victorious on the field. Aditha sends his faithful aide Vallavaraiyan Vandiyadevan (Karthi) to see what is happening in his father’s palace where Chola chieftains are gathering for a secret meeting. Vandiyadevan soon falls in with a religious man Azhwarkadiyan Nambi (Jayaram), who while providing some comic relief is another spy. They discover a plot to take the crown from the ailing king Sundara Chola and give it to his nephew, who had been passed over. Among those trying to use Vandiyadevan is the beautiful Nandini (Aishwariya Rai Bachchan), who uses her looks to get her husband, commander Chinna Pazhuvettariyar (R. Parthiban).
