OTT streaming update
While we recommend it to be seen in the cinema, you also have the choice to watch it again at home after some time.
The official OTT platform for Ponniyin Selvan 1 is Amazon Prime Video in India. They acquired the rights for about ₹125 crores for both parts, according to reports. It is one of the biggest purchases by this streaming service in the country.
The digital release date is yet to be announced. We expect it to be within 2-4 months after the theatrical premiere.

Finally, here is the official synopsis for the movie: “Vandiyathevan, a brave and brilliant young man sets out to cross the Chola land to deliver a message from the Crown Prince Adithya Karikalan. The narrative deals with attempts by his sister Kundavai to bring back Arulmozhivarman to establish political peace in a land seemingly beset with unrest and civil war plotted by vassals and petty chieftains.”
