Maniratnam’s ideal undertaking was Ponniyin Selvan 1, or PS 1. Even though it was a Maniratnam film, when it was released on September 30, 2022, it didn’t garner much notice. But after the film was out, everything was different, and from the first day, there was positive chatter all over the nation. However, PS 1 quickly rose to the top of the Tamil film charts. The highly anticipated sequel’s release date has been set for April 28, 2022, according to its creators.
Arulmozhi Varman, played by Jayam Ravi, and Vandhiyathevan, played by Karthi, perished in the sea at the conclusion of PS 1 following a struggle with Pandiyas. Fans were confused when Oomai Rani’s visage appeared in the first movie’s end credits because Aishwarya Rai also plays the part.
There will be no new actors or actresses in PS 2, but Ponniyin Selvan will feature the same actors and actresses. The cast of PS 2 included Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Sobhita Dhulipala, R Sarathkumar, Vikram Prabhu, Jayaram, Prakash Raj, Rahma, Radhakrishnan Parthiban, and Prabhu and Mani. The film was produced by Mani Ratnam and Subaskaran under the auspices of Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies. Ravi Varman handled the cinematography, AR Rehman handled the music.
Release Date | When and Where to Watch?
People from all around the world have been anticipating the release of PS 2, which will be bigger and better than the original one. Finally, the movie will be ready to see on April 28, 2022. You must wait till the film is released in theatres if you want to view the entire thing. Following that, it will be available on an OTT platform.

Budget and Collection
In order to conserve money, Mani Ratnam produced both PS 1 and PS 2 in just 150 days. We may estimate that the PS2’s production cost was around 350 crores because the source claims that the PS2’s budget was increased for greater visual effects. But PS 1 brought in about 400 crores, the most of any Tamil film. People now have very high expectations for PS 2, and market analysts are predicting that it will earn a staggering sum on its first day of release.
Movie Review and Ratings
PS1 received high marks for its performances and writing, earning an IMDb score of 7.8/10 based on 30,078 votes. Now that PS2 has been released, both moviegoers and critics are eagerly anticipating it, and everyone is hoping that it will receive favorable reviews, ratings, and box office success.
All around India, but particularly in Chennai, Ponniyin Selavn 1 enjoyed enormous popularity. It was one of the most profitable Tamil films. On April 28, 2022, Ponniyin Selvan Part 2 will be released, and it will live up to these expectations. Your mind will be blown by Maniratnam’s magic and visual performance.
