    The thing that was most interesting about this book was the exploration of the shades of grey of various characters By far the most intriguing of these were Nandini and Adhitha Karikalar Adhitha Karikalar is as harsh as he is vulnerable The irrational he became the sympathy I felt for him As cruel as Nandini's actions were given her circumstances she was justified in her flawed behaviours The thing I found a bit annoying though was the fact that Azhwarkadiyan happened to always be in the right place at the right time to gather all the important information It’s a plot convenience that’s used uite repetitively Other than that it was an enjoyable read

    Ponniyin selvan story is about Sundara chola’s children Rajaraja CholaKunthaviAthitha karigala It has 5 partswritten by kalkiIn this my favourite is kunthavi The brave and intelligent woman in this story And I like vanthiyadevan also Because i like his travelling character and everything

    Manimekalai makes a grand entry We also get to finally see Aaditta Karikalan The stage is set for the inevitable tragic end

    The masterpiece of Kalki the Ponniyin Selvan though being fictitious the plot reveals many interesting stories based on some historic facts and characters Hence it is imperative to focus on the history behind the fictionWith the expansion of medieval Chozha kingdom founded by Vijayalaya Chozha the Chozha empire spreads over by capturing the Pallavas and the Kongu kingdom Later on his successors Parantaka I Aditakarikala alias Aditya II and Rajarajachozha do elaborate the dynasty with the victory over Banas the Ganges the Pandya and the King of CeylonThe sources of historical information for PS have been through stone inscriptions copper plates and a host of booksThen Rajarajachozha enthroned after his death and his reign is a golden era for the Chozha Empire as it was witnessed with the greatest prosperity glory and remarkable fame

    Epic EpicSimply Awesome fast moving unputdownable book crafted with lovely style of writingAll characters are set for final bookCant wait to start the last part

  6. Mahathi Ramya Mahathi Ramya says:

    Part 4 of Ponni's beloved is fast paced More story is covered in this part and readers get to know the inner intentions of characters Characterization is always a plus in all the parts of the story I like that we get to see of the deaf and mute woman and learn details about her past It's good to read about Crown Prince Aditya and the enchantress Nandini The story has enough twists and interesting turns I liked part 1 and Part 4 than other parts I am eagerly waiting to read the next part and the climax In a few places I can find some typos Editing might have taken care of those My Rating 455

  7. Ayyappan Lakshminarayanan Ayyappan Lakshminarayanan says:

    Plot was okay in this part But it is not as gripping as other parts

  8. Ramya Ramya says:

    Even translated this whole series of Ponniyan Selvan gets a 45 for plot odd diverse character development and a sense of humor throughout This is a in occidental comparison a chivalrous romance novel a la style de Dumas but is set in the 10 11th century Southern India and has all the components of courtcountry intrigue interior heart plots of vengeance and love and lush scenery novel by Kalki a 20th century master of story telling reformer of identity for Tamil Nadu Tamils after mind numbing Colonial civilizing influence back into integration with a new identity based on past glorified history of the region it's literature as this novel series depicts the region was always divided with different identities with Tamil ness being a post independence work in progress What I wish Kalki had done is be explicit about how much factual historical research versus imagination went into this series I am told Kalki's language is gorgeous appropriately different for each character's background in the original Tamil would love to read it one day if found in the original For now this is the most immediately accessible way for non Tamil readers to discover the beauty complex nature of life in the southern tip of Indian sub continent over 10 centuries ago from which we have gorgeous bronzes temples and literature to substantiate existence of those interesting societies Could we learn from them if we stopped romanticizing them?

  9. Girish Girish says:

    Part 4 of the book for no fault of anybody is that part that has to focus on the background history and back story that is relevant Hence it has 75% of the story without any of our favorite characters including Ponniyin Selvan and Vandhiyathevan The reader is allowed to become impatient since the characters are left at an interesting point and you are to wait for almost an entire book to pick up the story The part being explained is something that you might have put together along with the characters in the last book and hence there is no anticipation or suspense Without the 'fortune' that favours the brave in the adventure component or the witty one liners of Vandhiyathevan it trudges on like a history bookI'm complaining much because of the expectation that the previous part set And still I give it a 45 since i know this is necessary much like the health food and exercise though one might not really enjoy itStarting the finale without much of a break since this book left me hungry

  10. Vijay Vijay says:

    Another epic piece from Kalki Since this was nearing the conclusion of the five part series it raced along from the start to the finish The number of days covered in the entire book is very few When the book ends Kalki has set you up for the climax with a lot of expectationIn some ways this was my least favorite of the series so far Primarily because I love the main character Vandhiyadevan and wished to see of him His activities occupy very little of this book so I was a little disappointed This is Aditha karikalan's book All his character traits are well brought out his history explained and the stage set for his all important role in the final book
