— Ramesh Bala (@rameshlaus) October 2, 2022 The film ‘Ponniyin Selvan 1’ was released in several languages, including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam, and the film is getting a lot of positive feedback.
‘Ponniyin Selvan 1’ is an adaptation of the book Ponniyin Selvan, which was written by Kalki Krishnamurthy in 1955. Mani Ratnam had the idea for quite some time to adapt the best-selling novel into a movie, and in 2022, he was finally given the opportunity to do it. The film’s debut has been met with acclaim and praise.
The first installment of the two-part film tells an outstanding narrative that is based on the early years of the life of prince Arun Mozhi Varman, who subsequently became famous as the renowned Raja Raja Chozhan. The production of the film is one of the costliest endeavours that have ever been attempted.
