Story


Aayirathil Oruvan is a 2010 Indian Tamil social, fantasy film released on Jan 14, 2010. The film is directed by Selvaraghavan, produced by R Ravinder.
The film begins with an episode in 1279 AD, when the successor of the last great Chola Emperor, pending invasion, sends his people to a mystery location, to survive the threat. The story resumes with an archaeologist, a coolie and a member of the army going in search of the archaeologist's father to the ruined city that was the place the exiled Chola Prince retreated to. An expedition is promptly arranged, and on the course they stumble on the lost Chola civilization and its king and find unexplained links between them and the culture. The shocking events and the problems that arise forms the crux of the story. Aayirathil Oruvan languished in development hell due to slow progress of the shoot and the extensive pre- and post-production works, evading release dates ranging one year.[3] Shooting began in July 2007, and took place in various locations with a record number of extras in areas including Chalakudy, Kerala and Jaisalmer, Rajasthan amongst other regions throughout India.[4] Prior to release, the film was given an adult rating by the Central Board of Film Certification and worldwide theatrical and television rights for the film were sold for a record Rs.35 crores.[5][6] The film released coinciding with the festival of Thai Pongal on 14 January 2010, with a Telugu dubbing version following suit weeks later. Upon release, the film received contrastingly mixed reviews whilst proceeding to become a successful venture commercially.

When adventure meets history with a simmering feud spilling over centuries complete with generations of hatred, is the canvas of a feature film enough?
