5 Mani Ratnam Movies on Netflix to Watch Before Ponniyin Selvan Releases

The Tamil Romance Ponniyin Selvan, written by well-known author Kalki R Krishnamurthy, has dominated the imagination of readers in Tamil for several decades. The novel, which was first published in Tamil magazine Kalki in the early 1950s, it is among the top sellers at the Chennai Book Fair every year. The book, which is a fiction based on Chola’s story, has always caught the attention of filmmakers. In the 1970s, the former chief minister and leading actor MGR wanted to make Ponniyin Selvan in a movie. So, in the 90s, artist Kamal Haasan came down to make a movie out of it. But all the projects fell apart.

But now director Mani Ratnam more or less got the project amidst great difficulty (pandemic), and the movie teaser was released amid fanfare a few days ago. Ponniyin Selvan has a cast that includes Vikram, Karthi, Jeyam Ravi, Jayaram, Vikram Prabhu, Prakashraj, Trisha, Aishwarya Lakshmi, and not to forget Aishwarya Rai.
