Ponniyin Selvan song Ponni Nadhi: Mani Ratnam-AR Rahman deliver a chartbuster

Ponniyin Selvan’s first song Ponni Nadhi sings of the river Cauvery and how it contributed to the prosperity of the Chola kingdom.

Ponniyin Selvan‘s first song, titled Ponni Nadhi is out.

The song Ponni Nadhi exalts the river Cauvery (aka Ponni), which was the main reason behind the prosperity of the Chola kingdom.

The song is likely to be set at the beginning of the film when Vallavaraiyan Vandhiyatheva (played by Karthi) travels through the Chola land to pass on the message he secretly carries from Aditya Karikalan (Vikram).

The song starts with a wonderful line praising the land of Chola

The line can be loosely translated to, “At the sound of water, paddy will bloom. At the sound of a chisel, stones will bloom.

At the sound of the enemy, the arrows will. And to praise the land of Cholas

the words themselves will bloom.” Composed by AR Rahman, the song is rousing and energetic.
