Ponniyin Selvan Part 1 Review ( Experience )

 This movie is based on a set of books written by Kalki in the 19th century namely Ponniyin Selvan talking about the Great Chola Empire, the people of those days, the culture of Cholas, the Architecture of Chola, and the intense politics involved in the Empire by explaining the Travel of a character namely Vandhiya Thevan.  

Ponniyin Selvan Part 1

From the first scene of the movie, with a voice-over of actor Kamal Hassan, we can get straight into the movie and its field. 

The subsequent scenes of the movie take us on the floor of Chola Empire ruled by Sundara Cholan between the sky and Chola soil. 

I could feel that the man Kari Kaalan ( Aditya Karikala Cholan ) has lived like a lion on war fields since from the introduction scene of him with the roaring acting of Vikram, the way how the war scene of Chola Vs Rastriya Kingdom was screened. Especially the acting of Vikram by sitting on his horse by holding his sword and going around the opponent king who is on his knees on the floor.

Story and Review

If a couple is living separated after marriage or if a couple is living together without getting married, something that’s travelling between the couple is one and only LOVE. Manirathnam is a personality one who is withholding success only with a single worded concept which is nothing but the same LOVE again.


LOVE May perhaps travel along with/ anywhere/ within anyone. This seems to be the Storyline of any Manirathnam films. Two people with different destinies and similar thoughts about no belief in married life are falling in love. They do not just love, but they start to live together. As the people in their families are forcing them to get married, is their life continuing with their marriage or they get separated and go towards their own destinies? Is the end of this story!

Artists Contribution: With the bouncing act of Thulkar, he has not only got the name as the latest generation Love Hero but he is also coming around this film industry as a stealer of many of the young girls hearts.

Nithya Menon one who is appearing as Thara has also acted very generously. Her facial expression and naughty dialogs has gained lots of applause from the audience.

Leema Samsan one who is acting as suffering from memory loss issue and Prakash Raj one who is acting as her husband with a lot of Love on his wife are the role models for True Love. Their acting as a couple is awesome.

Lyrics’ of Vairamuthu and music by A R Rahman can be said to be the great pillars of this Tamil Movie O Kadhal Kanmani (OK Kanmani).

The dialogs of Manirathnam and the characters in this Tamil Film O Kadhal Kanmani (OK Kanmani) cannot be criticised in any ways.

It can be said that P C Sreeram is the strong support for this Tamil Movie O Kadhal Kanmani (OK Kanmani). P C Sreeram has given the completeness to this film with the help of his cinematography.

In overall analysis, How is the story of this Tamil Movie O Kadhal Kanmani (OK Kanmani)? Bouncing act of Thulkar, cinematography of P C Sreeram, music by A R Rahman and a story without target by Manirathnam, in total O Kadhal Kanmani is targeting towards the Love path and success of Manirathnam.

This Tamil Film O Kadhal Kanmani is more than OKAY my dear friends. So do not miss to watch it in theatres and comment on our review of this Tamil Movie O Kadhal Kanmani!

Tamil actress Pooja Hedge said no for a Mani rathnam movie ..

Tamil actress Pooja Hedge
Tamil actress Pooja Hedge acted in the Tamil movie Muhamoodi pairing with Tamil actor Jeeva under the direction of Myskin and the acting of Pooja Hedge was highly appreciated for her acting in that movie. After that, Pooja Hedge went to act in Bollywood movies after getting chance to act there. The current movie of Tamil actress Pooja Hedge is the Bollywood movie Mohanjo daro in which Hrithik Roshan has done the main male role ( hero ) under the direction of Aastose Gowrikar.

At this situation there is a talk going on that, Tamil cinema director Mani Rathnam called Pooja Hedge to act in his movie pairing with Dulkar Shalmaan. But as Pooja Hedge was busy with her hindi movies, she has refused to act in that Mani rathnam movie.
