    After some reading on IMAX vs not, I have decided not watch this in IMAX.

    I have strong feel that Aditi rao might have played Manimegalai and her character intro is in PS2

    Actor Srikanth keeps coming in my head while reading about parthibendran.

    Prithviraj could have been given some role. Maybe he might have been good as Madhurandhagan instead of Rahman. It's not as impactful for the actor but a vital role.

    Manimegalai should look bit dark skinned as per kalki.. not sure whether aditi fit in that..
    in one place Vandhiyadhevan quotes that to kandhamaaran. That all ur ladies are 'karunirathu azhagigal' whereas nandini is very fair, thats y they are all jealous of nandini.. And it was written in 1950, so we can understand these dialogues and i dont know whether Mani go based on that..

    On lighter note, If aditi plays manimegalai. Manimegalai will look more beautiful than Kundavai :) :)

    Yeah Aditi is gorgeous. But not sure who else would Mani cast. Aishwarya Rajesh seems fit. Amala Paul mentioned she rejected a role since she wasn’t in the right mind space. One thing I noticed on the trailer launch was Aditi and Sidharth were styled by the same designer as that of the cast and kind of had a similar treatment ( designer/jeweler/photographer etc) so I am assuming they have a role in ps2

    Yes Rahman seems old. These characters had not more than couple of years age gap. But when we accept 56year Vikram as Aditya Karikalan Mani thought the audience will be ok with Rahman too

    One person who shocked me in these promotional interviews is Sobitha. She talks much more sense than Trish who keeps repeating the same thing in all interviews. It’s mainly Vikram and Karthi doing all heavy lifting in promotions. I loved the clip in which ARR was singing and Vikram doing the chorus

    Finally i read the translated version of ponniyin selvan and i feel Karthi suits the role of Vanthiyadevan.

    Nandini is such a powerful role an enchantress, couldn't imagine anyone except Aishwarya rai.
