PONNIYIN SELVAN – PART 2 [Hindi] is predicated on a novel of the identical title by Kalki. Mani Ratnam, Jeyamohan and Kumaravel’s screenplay suffers from the identical downside which was prevalent within the first half – it’s too complicated. If one isn’t conscious of this chapter within the historical past or the background, it turns into troublesome to understand at a number of locations what precisely is occurring. Divya Prakash Dubey’s dialogues are truthful.
Mani Ratnam’s path fails to impress the audiences on an all-India stage. The size (165 minutes) is a matter. Additionally, he ought to have simplified issues in order that the audiences exterior the house state may also become involved within the storyline. For example, within the second half, the battle takes place in each Tanjore and Kadambur. The palaces in each locations look related and audiences will probably be scratching their heads questioning which character is through which city. Even when we hold this issue apart, the storyline and in addition the execution isn’t convincing. The enemies turn into pals and vice versa instantly and even randomly. They don’t have stable grounds to change sides. The much-hyped double function aspect of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan isn’t as engaging as meant.

A couple of scenes additionally stand out like Vandiyadevan’s assembly with Nandini when the previous is captured, the intermission level and Karikalan assembly Nandini within the secret passage. Lastly, he has extracted positive performances from the ensemble solid.
Jayam Ravi fits the half and performs ably. Vikram is dashing and delivers an important efficiency. Karthi’s comedian timing is proscribed right here, as in comparison with the primary half. Nonetheless, he does nicely. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan appears beautiful and offers a positive efficiency. Particular point out also needs to go to Sara Arjun (younger Nandini). She leaves an enormous mark and is aptly solid to play a youthful model of Aishwarya. Trisha (Kundavai) is respectable and one needs she had extra to do within the movie. Prakash Raj is reliable. Rahman is sweet however is let down by his character’s actions. The identical goes for Vikram Prabhu (Parthiban). Sobhita Dhulipala (Vaanathi) and Aishwarya Lekshmi (Samudra Kumari) are wasted this time. Kishore (Ravidas), Nasser and others are okay.
A R Rahman’s music is forgettable. ‘Mera Aasmaan Jal Gaya’ stands out resulting from Arijit Singh’s voice. ‘Ruaa Ruaa’, ‘Veera Raja Veera’, ‘Megha Re Megha’, ‘Shivoham’ and others don’t have a shelf life. A R Rahman’s background rating, nevertheless, is top-notch.
Ravi Varman’s cinematography is spectacular. Thota Tharrani’s manufacturing design is wealthy. Eka Lakhani’s costumes (further costumes by Chandrakant Sonawane) are very interesting. Kecha Khamphakdee, Sham Kaushal and Dhilip Subbarayan’s motion isn’t excessive and it really works for the movie. VFX is first-rate. A Sreekar Prasad’s modifying might have been sharper.
