Share post:

New Delhi: Prime Video on Friday announced the streaming premiere of ‘Ponniyin Selvan: II’ in Tamil, with dubs available in Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada, from today (Friday) onwards.

Directed by genius filmmaker Mani Ratnam and produced under his banner of Madras Talkies, along with Subaskaran Allirajah’s Lyca Productions, the epic historical fantasy adventure-drama is based on the exceptional novel by Kalki Krishnamurthy.

A sequel to the 2022 blockbuster ‘Ponniyin Selvan: I’, the film features a distinguished and acclaimed ensemble cast including Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha Krishnan, Aishwarya Lekshmi, R Sarathkumar, Jayaram, Prabhu, Sobhita Dhulipala, Vikram Prabhu, Prakash Raj, Rahman, and R. Parthiban in pivotal roles.

A visual spectacle, PS-II picks up from the edge-of-the-seat climax of the first film, which is also currently available on the service for customers to stream. Focusing on Arulmozhi Varman’s (Jayam Ravi) transformation into Rajaraja I, the revered king of the Chola dynasty, the film opens with a captivating preamble, that explores the relationship between Aaditha Karikalan (Vikram) and Nandhini’s (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), and the ongoing power struggle of succession for the Chola dynasty.

Mesmerizingly unravelling the mystery surrounding Arulmozhi’s disappearance, which set the tone for a riveting story, PS-II is an unmissable conclusion to the two-part magnum opus.

“Ponniyin Selvan is an extraordinary two-part story with a universal appeal that has been creating waves and breaking records, both domestically and internationally. After PS-I, we are thrilled to collaborate yet again with Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions to bring its sequel to Prime Video,” said, Manish Menghani, director of content licensing, Prime Video India.

“Through our unique partnerships, collaborations with top-notch creators and stalwarts of the industry, we’re able to offer our customers the best content across genres and in multiple languages. The phenomenal customer response to PS-I, and the new benchmarks that Ponniyin Selvan: II has set at the global box-office, further bolsters our confidence that the sequel will be enjoyed, and loved by audiences across the world,” added Manish.

Director, producer, and writer Mani Ratnam shared, “It is as if Kalki Krishnamoorthy, wrote Ponniyin Selvan – a five part novel, just so that it could be mounted as a big scale film. It has everything that makes for an exciting cinematic experience – action, adventure, drama, palace intrigue and all these are set against the backdrop of the most important period of South Indian History. For over five decades several makers have harboured this majestic story in their mind. It is a dream project, not just for me, but for millions. We are proud to bring to the audience world over, PS: Part I & II.”
