Ponniyin Selvan 2 Review, Rating and Public Talk


Ponniyin Selvan 2 Review, Rating and Public Talk: After 7 months of Ponniyin Selvan part 1 release, its sequel has hit the screens today 28 Apr 2023. The first part’s Tamil version was a massive hit, but the reception was not the same in other languages. Directed by Mani Ratnam, this action drama based on the novel Ponniyin Selvan penned by Kalki Krishnamurthy.

In fairness, the climactic portions are hugely impacted by this emotional high, as the events that follow Karikalan’s death cannot match the suspense and the drama the narrative held until then. And Mani Ratnam seems to realise this too, and decides to have a war scene in the end to amp up the drama to give us an adrenaline rush. But the more underwhelming moment is the climax. Even in Kalki’s book, we get a rather low-key ending, with one too many twists, but here, while the writers sensibly give us a more agreeable twist, they fail to pack a punch with the speech that Arulmozhi delivers in the end to make the ultimate sacrifice.

All the drama leads to a final big battle for the throne. A huge war scene is shot neatly but without too much high. This and the lack of conclusion to the threads of some popular characters leave one a little unsatisfied at the end. Overall, Ponniyin Selvan 2 holds attention despite all the issues to those who are already connected to the characters and the world. The scale, ambition and casting make the movie a one-time watch with the right expectations set in from the start.

On the whole, Ponniyin Selvan 2 is a satisfactory sequel that has some interesting and well-executed sequences. The absorbing storyline, decent drama, and solid performances are its assets. PS 2 is surely better than its predecessor, but to enjoy the film, one has to sit through the slow-paced narrative. Give it a shot if you love watching period dramas.

Ratnam’s deeply respectful, family-friendly approach towards Krishnamurthy’s novel ensures that the films stay on the surface without delving into too many subtextual possibilities. Amidst the gorgeous visuals and gracefully choreographed movements of characters, the impeccably clad actors and the attention to period detail, a sense of remorse for ruinous decisions just about sneaks through.

After watching Ponniyin Selvan 2, one can say that the first part was Mani’s way of introducing and establishing the epic, where he didn’t shy away from using screen time for lavish song sequences. In the second part, he is bolder and deviates majorly from the books. Here, Mani Ratnam, the filmmaker, is more faithful to his craft than to the written material. This makes Ponniyin Selvan 2 better cinema, and superior to its first part.
