Reviews:


A brilliant adaptation of the most celebrated book in Tamil History. Everything about the film is almost perfect. Whether it be A.R. Rahman’s music or Manirathnam’s direction and definitely Ravi Varman Camera.

All the actors have contributed well to an Epic Movie / Story. Even though there some continuity issues they are very minor. But the intricate attention to details by the director made us forget everything else and get immersed in the story and travel with the characters.

One such thing that stood out to me is a choice of White Horse for Aditya Karikalan symbolizing that War is the place he finds peace. As I said, this is just a tiny detail that got stuck in my mind. But I am sure, everyone finds something to be awe stuck in this blockbuster.

Thanks again to A.R. Rahaman for helping us get immersed in an exceptional music and background score.

Review By: noodlemind

This is a cracking historical epic worthy of anything that ever came out of Hollywood. It all centres around the intrigues and plotting over the succession to the Chozha throne in 10th century India. It transpires that the current emperor “Sundara” (Prakash Raj) came to the throne because the rightful successor was too young. Many years on, this ageing gent has nominated his own son “Karikalan” (Vikram) to succeed him, but there are growing murmurings amongst his nobility that the succession ought revert back to the original line. The Prince’s confidente, “Vandiyadevan” (Karthi), is charged by the prince to garner as much intelligence as he can and deliver it to his Imperial father – a rather dangerous and perilous mission as he finds himself constantly (and energetically) jumping from frying pan to fire, unsure who to trust. What now ensues is really well paced and enjoyable. It mixed the fun elements of films like ‘Prince of Persia” (2010) with then grand scale battle scenarios of something like “Marrakar” (2021) with an host of glamorous and exquisitely dressed characters to keep the pot well and truly boiling. Aishwarya (“Nandini”) and Trisha Krishnan (“Kundavai”) also prove that the men folks are, frequently, being cleverly manipulated by their shrewd and intelligent spouses. I can’t say the musical numbers always worked though. At their best, the expertly choreographed performances served the story well – illustrating just how important celebration was in convincing the populace that all was well. At times, though, they are a bit extended and can serve to disrupt the pace of this otherwise quite intricately constructed exercise in court-craft, betraya and seduction that has quite a bit of humour too. Stylish and glorious to look at (even if the visual effects are not always the best), this is entertaining and at just shy of three hours, it flew by remarkably quickly. It’s also the first time in a long time that I’ve heard a cinema audience cheer the stars as they charismatically own the screen. I enjoyed this – though I’m not quite sure what part two can behold….

Purists may be upset..
Ponniyin Selvan : Part One is director Maniratnam’s vision of the epic Tamil novel by Kalki. True to the poster the movie is based on the novel but is purely Maniratnam’s movie. It does have some minor deviations in plot narrative which might upset purists.

The good part about this movie is one does not have to have read the book. Viewers can experience a version of director Maniratnam’s PS:1. It does feel a little bit rushed, however those uninitiated to the PS landscape will be able to catch up. The entire cast and crew deserve a major round of applause and kudos. The visuals, cinematography and performances are the highlights of the movie.

Dare I say, but the parts that annoyed me were that I found the movie highly rushed. I’m no one to judge casting decisions but somehow Lal as Thirukovilur Malayamaan and Mohan Raman as Anirudha Bhramayar didn’t quite cut it. Personally, some of the scenes could be a tad brighter and action at times shorter. And Yes, someone else could’ve played Vanathi.

But above all, this is a wonderful movie. Director Maniratnam’s effort has to be appreciated. I gave the movie an 8 based on cast, cinematography, costume and art but have changed it to a 6 for being fragmented.

The book trumps the movie and I’m sure viewers have ample time to read the epic before the next release.

Mani’s Selvan
This one is again an usual Maniratnam movie. Nothing special. From an ordinary world cinema fanboy’s point of view I should say that this movie lacks the cinematic grammar what a historical/period film should have. Director Maniratnam claims that he had tried to capture the essence of Kalki’s Ponniyin Selvan, but what I feel is he failed. For example, the way Aditya Karikalan’s character portrayed in the film is absolute non sense. Do a war general like Aditya Karikalan drink alcohol, dance and regret a love failure. No. History says he was a disciplined warrior, intelligent and brave and not a barbarian fool. In fact many think that Kalki’s book is a history book. But it is not and Ponniyin Selvan is a historical fiction. Kalki scrutinised the history and makes readers think that Raja Raja Cholan was also one of the suspects of the murder of Aditya Karikalan. No proof from history. Coming to this movie, I humbly request director Maniratnam to watch historical movies like Spartacus, Gladiator, Braveheart, TROY or atleast movies like Jodha Akbar, Padmaavat and then direct a historical film or else please don’t.
