Reviews for Ponniyin Selvan 1 – Mani Ratnam seems to have gotten a winner

These are the hype times, and the hype machine keeps on working. But even after making room for it, the anticipation and buzz surrounding the release of Mani Ratnam’s album Ponniyin Selvan 1 – hit theaters around the world today – has been impressive. Even in distant nations, where Tamil films are only superficially released, they are taking a different path to Ponniyin Selvan. For example, in Sweden, great films in Tamil are released on a single, undefined screen. But Ponniyin Selvan is being released in 3 theaters, including an Imax. This is unheard of for a Tamil film in recent times is what the locals say.

Can a movie that comes with that expectation live up to that? Well, before we get into what the critics say, here is a brief recap of what the film is all about and why it matters to Tamil audiences.
