Ponniyin Selvan 2 is the sequel to PS1. The two-part film is an adaptation of Kalki Krishnamurthy’s 1955 novel Ponniyin Selvan. Mani Ratnam had wanted to make a film about the popular book for years and finally got the chance to release it last year.
Both Aishwarya Rai and Vikram’s performances are praised in Ponniyin Selvan 2. News18’s review of the film reads, “Aishwarya reminds us that she is blossoming as an actress under Ratnam’s guidance. She conveys her inner turmoil, grief, and wounds so easily. You could tell the camera had surrendered to her. She is brilliantly supported by Vikram. Their first scene together is nothing but them looking at each other and exchanging a few lines, but Vikram conveys the emotion of pain beautifully. One of the best scenes in the movie is their confrontation scene.”
