The much-awaited trailer for the second part of the Tamil movie Ponniyin Selvan, produced by Mani Ratnam and directed himself, is set to release on March 29, 2023. The film, based on the classic novel of the same name by Kalki Krishnamurthy, is one of the most anticipated releases of the year, with fans eagerly waiting to see the continuation of the story.
The first part of Ponniyin Selvan introduced us to the 10th-century Chola dynasty and the reign of Emperor Sundara Chozhar. His sons Aditha Karikalan and Arulmozhi Varman, known as Ponniyin Selvan, lead the empire’s conquests in Kanchi and Lanka, respectively. When Aditha Karikalan suspects a conspiracy among his courtiers, he dispatches Vallavaraiyan Vandiyadevan to investigate. Vandiyadevan uncovers a plot by the minister of finance and treasurer Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar and other ministers to prevent Aditha Karikalan from ascending the throne and instead install his uncle Madhuranthaka Chola on it.
Vandiyadevan meets Nandini, who married Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar after being banished from the city for her affair with Aditha Karikalan. Nandini, seeking revenge against the Chola dynasty, aids Vandiyadevan in his mission to save the empire. Along the way, he meets and befriends Ponniyin Selvan, who is fighting a battle against Raja Mahinda of Lanka.
The film’s first part ended on a cliffhanger, with Ponniyin Selvan being summoned back to Thanjavur as a prisoner for refusing the throne of Ashoka’s daughter. The audience eagerly awaits the second part to see how the story unfolds.
Kamal Hassan, a close friend of Mani Ratnam, has been instrumental in promoting the film. His tweet announcing the trailer release has created a buzz on social media, with fans eagerly waiting for its release.
The second part of Ponniyin Selvan is expected to be even more splendid and action-packed than the first. With an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and many others, the film promises to be a visual treat for the audience.
In conclusion, releasing the trailer for Ponniyin Selvan part 2 is an exciting development for franchise fans. The first part of the film was a massive success and set the stage for an even more thrilling second installment. With its all-star cast and epic storyline, Ponniyin Selvan promises to be one of the biggest Tamil films of the year.
