Ponniyin Selvan

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Tamil Comments

After a decent debut in Azhagiya Theeyae, director Radha Mohan comes up with the quaintly Ponniyin Selvan --- a name immortalized in Tamil literature by Kalki's magnum opus in the same name. 

But this Ponniyin Selvan has nothing to do with the literary classic.

Being produced by A M Rathnam, the movie stars his son Ravi Krishna in the lead role. Gopika plays his ladylove.

It's a movie about a youth struck with an inferiority complex, who loses all his confidence to come up in life.

However, he comes across a bunch of people and his encounter with them instills confidence in his mind to fight and succeed. 

According to Ravi Krishna, the movie has been shaping well. "I play a youth bugged by inferiority complex.

On the lines of the one I got to do in 7 G Rainbow Colony. Radha Mohan has been a remarkable director who gets the best out of his artistes.

Unlike my earlier movies, I have more scope to perform in this movie".

Radha Mohan says the movie is an emotional drama of a youth who runs from pillar to post to achieve his goal.

Gopika, who is a busy actress in Kollywood today was impressed with the story and immediately gave her nod to play the heroine in the movie She says quite unlike in other Tamil movies, the scope for the heroine to perform is more in Ponniyin Selvan.

Being produced in a grand manner by A M rathnam, Ponniyin Selvan also stars veteran actress Revathy playing Ravikrishna's mother.

An emotional melodrama, carrying a positive message, will certainly elicit a positive response from the public and youths in particular, says director Radha Mohan.
