Directed by genius filmmaker Mani Ratnam and produced under his banner of Madras Talkies, along with Subaskaran Allirajah’s LycaProductions, the epic historical fantasy adventure-drama is based on the exceptional novel by Kalki Krishnamurthy.

A visual spectacle, PS-II picks up from the edge-of-the-seat climax of the first film, which is also currently available on the service for customers to stream. Focusing on ArulmozhiVarman's (Jayam Ravi) transformation into Rajaraja I, the revered king of the Chola dynasty, the film opens with a captivating preamble, that explores the relationship between Aaditha Karikalan (Vikram) and Nandhini's (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), and the ongoing power struggle of succession for the Chola dynasty. Mesmerizingly unravelling the mystery surrounding Arulmozhi’s disappearance, which set the tone for a riveting story, PS-II is an unmissable conclusion to thetwo-part magnum opus.
