|Ponniyin Selvan: Part One (2022)|
Vandiyathevan sets out to cross the Chola land to deliver a message from the Crown Prince Aditha Karikalan. Kundavai attempts to establish political peace in the land, with civil war seemingly being plotted by vassals and petty chieftains.
Based on Kalki Krishnamurthy’s hugely popular historical novel of the same name, directed by Mani Ratnam (TIME’s All-TIME 100 movies for Nayakan), and scored by Academy Award winner A.R. Rahman, Ponniyin Selvan: I will be the first of a two-part series retelling the 10th-century story of the rise of the Chola dynasty in South India, starring Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, and Trisha Krishnan.
Tickets are available to TIFF Members on Wednesday, September 28 at 10am ET, and to the public on Thursday, September 29 at 10am ET.
