The film features an ensemble cast of Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha Krishnan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Aishwarya Lekshmi. 

Based on the Tamil novel of the same name written by Kalki Krishnamoorthy, Ponniyin Selvan: I is a story of the early days of Arulmozhivarman, a powerful king of the south who went on to become the great Chola emperor Rajaraja Chola I. It is touted to be a potential game-changer for the Tamil film industry. The film will have a single-screen viewing all around as no major Telugu and Kannada movies are releasing this week.
