PS-1 is based on Kalki’s classic Tamil novel “Ponniyin Selvan", Mani Ratnam’s PS-1 is the first part of a two-part multilingual. The movie is directed by Mani Ratnam and jointly produced by Lyca Productions and Madras Talkies.
The story is set in the 10th century during a tumultuous time in the Chola Empire when the power struggle between different branches of the ruling family caused violent rifts between the potential successors to the reigning emperor. It is an adventure story where brave soldiers, cunning spies and evil schemers all try to win the empire for themselves. A civil war becomes imminent until the scores can be settled.
All this political and military turmoil leads to the Cholas becoming the most prosperous and powerful empire in the continent and one of the most successful and long reigning in history. PS-1 marks the beginning of the Golden Era.
