    I haven't read any other historical fiction. Going by what you are describing of Sandilyan, doesn't seem very encouraging.

    I understood the following as description as that of Madurangan dressed as a female. Does this not seem that way:

    யானைக்குப் பின்னால் பட்டுத் திரையினால் மூடப்பட்ட சிவிகை ஒன்று வந்தது. அதற்குள் இருப்பது யாரோ என்று வல்லவரையன் சிந்திப்பதற்குள்ளே, செக்கச் சிவந்த நிறத்துடன் வளையல்களும் கங்கணங்களும் அணிந்த ஒரு கரம் சிவிகைக்குள்ளேயிருந்து வெளிப்பட்டுப் பல்லக்கின் பட்டுத் திரையைச் சிறிது விலகியது. மேகத்தினால் மூடப்பட்டிருந்த பூரண சந்திரன் மேகத் திரை விலகியதும் பளீரென்று ஒளி வீசுவது போல் சிவிகைக்குள்ளே காந்திமயமான ஒரு பெண்ணின் முகம் தெரிந்தது.

    பெண் குலத்தின் அழகைக் கண்டு களிக்கும் கண்கள் வல்லவரையனுக்கு உண்டு என்றாலும், அந்தப் பெண்ணின் முகம் பிரகாசமான பூரண சந்திரனையொத்த பொன் முகமாயிருந்தாலும் எக்காரணத்தினாலோ வல்லவரையனுக்கு அம்முகத்தைப் பார்த்ததும் உள்ளத்தில் மகிழ்ச்சி தோன்றவில்லை. இனந்தெரியாத பயமும் அருவருப்பும் ஏற்பட்டன.

    Sandilyan is very good author and many of his stories are really good with lot of twist and turn.
    But the way he writes about women is not ok for me as well many people..

    In whole PS novel, u cant find any single intimate or vulgar words, Kalki used words very wisely..
    Not only in PS, Most of kalki novels - i have read atleast quite a few - he always portray woman in a very dignified way and no vulgar words or scenes..

    In 5th part of PS, Kundavai give her hand to Vandhiyadevan and says, "Painthamil marabil vandha naan, ungal karathai thotta piragu veru oruvaraiyum manakamaaten' like that.. Touching hand itself is very big thing in novel
    And we ourself can feel the depth when she says that.. so only i like kalki very much..

    If you haven't read much of his writings, try short stories of kalki.. very nice to read
    And sandilyan's rajamuthirai also very good one..

    They will clarify this later.. when madhuranthakan comes out of pallaku in midnight kootam (sambuvaraiyar maaligai), vandhiya devan finds out that is not valaiyal but Kanganam.. u can refer that scene..
    *******Spolier alert**********

    By this time u aware nandini and madhuranthagan are twins, so he also look very good as per the story..
    And vandhiyadevan mistook him as women..
    and thats y rahman is very bad choice :(

    I was waiting for Anirudha Brahmarayar. I love his foresight and political wisdom. Hope to see in PS 2.

    Yes, Kundavai not going to Aditya karikalan. I was waiting to watch the scene of Kudandai jothidar house visit. The dialogues there are very casual, funny and interesting. I was expecting Sundara chozha in the bedridden posture. Sundara chozha was handsome as the name suggests. Definitely
    not Prakash raj, any other handsome actor.

    So true about Rajamouli. He will put in his maxi effort and would ensure the end product is good. PS lion king ellathayum mix panni he gave us BB but our focus was on the movie and not on anything else. That is his success as a film maker
