Nandhini: Pazhuvoor Queen and wife of Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar whose birth and origin was doubtful in the beginning. The main antagonist of the story. She was born in Madurai and grew up in a priest family along with royal children in Pazhayarai until her youth. She is the foster-sister of Azhwarkadiyan Nambi. She is described as the most beautiful women in the entire novel. She hated Kundavai as Kundavai was jealous of Nandhini's beauty. Nandhini and Prince Aditya Karikalan developed a liking for each other in their childhood which nobody in the royalty liked. She was forced to flee Pazhaiyarai and live in Madurai. After Aditya Karikalan beheaded the injured Veerapandiyan, Nandhini joined Pandya conspirators and vowed to avenge Veerapandiyan's death by killing Karikalan and destroying the Chola dynasty. By marrying Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar who had lusted for her and by using him, she helped the Pandya conspirators. She married Aditha to involve him. She had a deep hatred towards the Chola royals for their ill-treatment and also had a desire for the throne. She had a terrible childhood that affected her badly and wanted to be with her mother Mandakini. Parthibendra Pallava and Kandanmaran fell for her beauty and she used them for her plot too. [Mandakini Devi went to Thanjavur (while she was pregnant), Sembiyan Maadevi was pregnant too, so she took care of Mandakini during her pregnancy. During child birth Sembiyan Maadevi gave birth to a still born son but Mandakini gave birth to twins - a boy (Madhurantaka) and a girl (Nandhini). Sembiyan Maadevi swapped her still born son with Mandakini's son. She asked Vaani Ammal (a maid in the place at that time) to bury her still born son and gave the daughter to Azhwarkadiyan's parents. After leaving the palace, Vaani Ammal notices that Sembiyan Maadevi's son (Senthan Amuthan) is alive. She fosters him and raises him as her own son. Avvai Shanmugam was the first to organise a conference on Tamil drama in Erode, and the first to organise a drama contest, in 1945. Vallavarayan Vandiyathevan, Crown Prince Aditha Karikalan's messenger, is sent by him to investigate the conspiracy and deliver the news to Sundara Chola and his sister Kundavai. Vandiyathevan reaches Veeranarayanapuram where he meets a vaishvite spy, Azhwarkaddiyan Nambi.

I would say people who are interested in reading historical novels will definitely like this book. Every frame Vikram comes in the film is deserving of an applause. Be it the first few scenes of battle ready pitching, or the later scenes of roaring dialogues from atop a horse (as if he was born to be a king, and has lived forever atop a horse), or the later heated discussions; he has given the word "method acting" a new definition. All actors have done their parts exceedingly well, from Jayaram (some comic relief, at last!) to Karthi, Jayam Ravi (subtle smile from atop that elephant - wow), Parthiban (owned the fort, shined in the few scenes like a true General), Prabhu (thundered in his siege), Sarath (his emotional scenes made him the hero of the scenes), Lal (fitting tribute to who could have been Uttamasili's peer), Rahman (just splendid as the sage-like prince, stylish finesse notwithstanding), Trisha (Kundavai, the powerhouse), Prakashraj (nothing less than magnificent throughout), Aishwaraya Rai (A revelation in the Kadambur scenes). I do not have much complaints of what has been changed from the books; the team has told a wonderful fictional story, albeit in a bland and soul-less way. We do not want fantastical action where palm trees are turned to catapults for humans like in Baahubali, yet we at least want some creative and engaging action where we enjoy what we see. Yet, we witness just regular action from any masala movie - which assistant director was responsible for these, I wonder..One of the prize winning scripts was 'Raja Raja Chozhan,’ which was staged in 1955 with Shanmugam as prince Rajendra. Nandini, a made-up fictional created by Kalki for Ponniyin Selvan, the imaginative novelist explores the myriad mysteries that surround her life story. she is the most beautiful but complex character narrated in this literature. The story unfolds with the journey of the protagonist Vandhiyadhevan to the capital Thanjavur. After discovering a conspiracy, Vandhiyadhevan makes enemies with the royalty. This movie is a laudable attempt at recreating a thousand year old world - Note this is a "world" and not merely the Tamil nations of the time.. You see Sri Lanka, Andhra, Telengana, Chattisgarh, Rajasthan, Maharastra and even Thailand, perhaps as historically Chola influence was far-flung in a sprawling sphere of influence. Therein lies the problem, the world creation has taken an entire first part 1 to accomplish and the second part merely wraps up the story; albeit with some great moments of cinematic finesse in terms of acting, music, cinematography, costume design and direction. Other characters include Maduranthaka Thevar (the man the conspirators intend to proclaim king), the son of Gandaraditya and Aniruddha Brahmarayar, and Sundara Cholar’s prime minister. Azhwarkadiyan Nambi, Brahmarayar’s spy, travels the nation challenging people to discussions. He gathers information for the PM and rescues Vandiyathevan with difficulty.
