Ponniyin Selvan, produced by Lyca Productions, was the first part of magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan. It released in theatres on September in five languages - Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. The film clashed with Vikram Vedha, starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan at the box office. The film opened to good reviews from film critics and was equally adept at impressing the audience.
The period drama was based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's popular historical novel Ponniyin Selvan (The Son Of Ponni) and its cast included some of the biggest stars including Vikram, Trisha, Karthi, Jayam Ravi. It also starred Sobhita Dhulipala and Aishwarya Lekshmi.
