Mani Ratnam’s dream project, Ponniyin Selvan’s second part, was released in multiple languages on April 28th, and the film was opened to positive talk from the audiences and critics as well. However, the film had under performed at the box office and collected less than the first part of the film.

The story of Ponniyin Selvan 2 explores the past love story between Aditha Karikalan and Nandini, how they were separated and what made Nandini to seek vengeance on Chola Kingdom. The narrative also follows Arunmozhi Varman’s rise as the renowned emperor Rajaraja Chola and what incidents follow up until his rise.
