One of the users loved the film including the BGM by AR Rahman, Ravi Varman’s cinematography and praised director Mani Ratnam.
I never read the novel.I watch the film.I went to witness the story of the Chola dynasty.I was so invested in the film and the film took me into its world.I was wondering how a film could be too good without any flaws & keep us engaged with our mouths open.(1/4)#PonniyanSelvan1 pic.twitter.com/4gUqjJbRsF

I have no words to describe this film. It's just wow, what a movie.

I respect #ManiRatnam for making his dream of #PonniyinSelvan1 finally a reality but there is merit to the argument that a source material so dense is best suited as a series across seasons rather than a 2 part movie!
Too many elements for one just introduced to this world 🤷♂️

Another user tweeted saying, ” Overall a satisfying Experience”
Very good novel adaptation from MR 🎉Actors done their part very well👌

Another user has praised the technology used for the film.
#PonniyinSelvan – Now I am able to realize why this film was not possible back then.
The Most Heaviest Sequence in the film which would've been Impossible to Recreate 10-15 years ago 🔥

What a movie! Each character is written with so much of depth! This is how a period movie should be. Not with illogical action scenes & item songs. Kalki would have been so proud if he was around. Mani Ratnam is GOAT! #பொன்னியின்_செல்வன் #PonniyinSelvan #PonniyinSelvan1 #PS1 #PS2 pic.twitter.com/fc0io2eyFN

Looks like netizens are loving the movie. Some are comparing it with other historical and fantasy films in past. Also, some are saying the film has no mass moments but it has a dense story which does not require any elevations or massy songs.
Meanwhile, as per some trade analysts, the film has opened very well in Southern belts and is all set to cross Rs. 100 Crores in the first week itself. Also, the film has also opened very well in international markets.
