Though Ponniyin selvan movie is a hit, for me still that book is far better than movie. It would be good, if this was taken as series than a movie. Book is a 5 volume, which is reduced to 2 part movie. For people those who don’t read Tamil, this maybe good.
But I guess the recent novel Velpari ( from Venkasen( will beat ponniyin selvan. When a right director converts that into series, that will be one of the world hit.
