PONNIYIN SELVAN – PART 2 [Hindi] is predicated on a novel of the identical identify 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 shouldn’t be 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 happening. Divya Prakash Dubey’s dialogues are honest.

Mani Ratnam’s course fails to impress the audiences on an all-India degree. The size (165 minutes) is a matter. Additionally, he ought to have simplified issues in order that the audiences outdoors the house state also can become involved within the storyline.

The palaces in each locations look related and audiences can be scratching their heads questioning which character is through which city. Even when we preserve this issue apart, the storyline and in addition the execution shouldn’t be convincing. The enemies turn into associates and vice versa all of the sudden and even randomly. They don’t have strong grounds to change sides. The much-hyped double position component of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan isn’t as attractive as supposed.

On the optimistic aspect, Mani Ratnam has mounted the movie on a grand scale. A number of photographs are creatively executed and look visually beautiful. A number 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 fantastic performances from the ensemble solid.

Movie Review: Ponniyin Selvan: Part-2

Jayam Ravi fits the half and performs ably. Vikram is dashing and delivers an important efficiency. Karthi’s comedian timing is restricted right here, as in comparison with the primary half.

She leaves an enormous mark and is aptly solid to play a youthful model of Aishwarya. Trisha (Kundavai) is first rate and one needs she had extra to do within the movie. Prakash Raj is reliable. Rahman is nice 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 attributable to 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 (extra costumes by Chandrakant Sonawane) are very interesting. Kecha Khamphakdee, Sham Kaushal and Dhilip Subbarayan’s motion shouldn’t be excessive and it really works for the movie. VFX is first-rate. A Sreekar Prasad’s modifying might have been sharper.
