Aayirathil Oruvan is a 2010 Tamil fantasy-adventure film directed by Selvaraghavan in his fifth feature film.
Produced by R. Ravindran at a budget of 32 crore rupees ($7,140,126), it features music composed by
G. V. Prakash Kumar, cinematography by Ramji and editing by Kola Bhaskar. The film stars Karthi Sivakumar,
Reemma Sen and Andrea Jeremiah in the lead roles with Parthiban playing a pivotal role. 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. 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. 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. 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
Plot In 1279 A.D., the downfall of the Chola dynasty seems imminent as the Pandyas drive the Chola people out
of their kingdom in southern India. To escape them and save the life of his successor the Chola emperor
sends his son along with the Chola people to a secret territory. The refugees take along an idol sacred
to the Pandyas, angering them. To capture the escaped Cholas and the stolen idol, the Pandyas extend
their invasion to unexplored territories but cannot find them. Centuries later, in 2009, Indian archaeologists continue searching for the existence of the lost Chola
group based on clues left by the ancient Pandyan warriors. All archaeologists who attempted to search
for the secret land have disappeared. Archaeologist Chandramouli is the most recent person to have gone missing.
The Indian government organizes a search expedition led by officer Anitha to find Chandramouli and the
Chola empire; she is assisted by the Indian army led by Ravisekharan. They recruit archaeologist Lavanya,
the estranged daughter of Chandramouli, because her insight is essential for the success of the expedition.
She hands over crucial documents on the Chola dynasty, prepared by her father, with instructions on
the route to reach the destination. Along with the army, Anitha employs a group of porters headed by Muthu, to transport the baggage during
the journey. The crew embark on their voyage leading them to an island, Min-gua, near Vietnam.
They face seven traps set by the Cholas: sea creatures, cannibals, warriors, snakes, hunger, quicksand and
a village. Many porters and army men are killed by these traps. Muthu, Anitha and Lavanya get separated from the others. They reach the ruins of a village where they are
subjected to black magic and nearly go mad before reaching the secret hideout of the Chola.
The three find an ethnic isolated primitive Tamil group, ruled by a Chola king.
The king and his people are in hiding, awaiting the arrival of the fabled messenger who will bring glory and
prosperity back to their land and lead them back to Thanjavur, their motherland. The king and the priest
consult the gods for omens and order Muthu, Anitha and Lavanya to be burnt alive as sacrifices. Anitha tells the king that she is the messenger sent from the homeland. Muthu and Lavanya are enslaved while
Anitha is given a chance to prove herself. She tries to seduce and convince the Chola king to march towards
the homeland in two days so he can be crowned properly as a king. He suspects her bona fides since none of
her actions match those described by the king's ancestors. The ancestors wrote that the messenger will be
preceded by hail and following his ill-treatment will eventually help the tribe. Meanwhile, Anitha drugs the priest and poisons the water sources. She catches a glimpse of the Pandyas'
sacred idol and leaves, finally exposing her identity as a descendant of the Pandya Dynasty.
For generations, her race has been trying to find the whereabouts of the Chola prince and his people.
The central minister, who sponsors the expedition, is also shown to be a Pandyan.
The Chola king is shattered for having believed in Anitha. Anitha and Ravishekaran gather an army and
assault the hidden kingdom. The king discovers that Muthu is the true messenger who would save the Cholas
from the clutches of Anitha and the army. The Cholas fight bravely, but eventually lose and are taken prisoners. Their women are molested and raped
by the army. The king is killed and the men drown in the seas. Muthu is able to escape and save the Chola
prince. The seed of the Chola dynasty is brought back to India by the messenger as prophesied. Cast Karthi Sivakumar as Muthu, a chief coolie working at Chennai Port, leading a very low class life alongside
his fellow workers. Muthu, a die-hard MGR fan, is taken on the journey and is one of the final trio who are
taken into the Chola kingdom. Reemma Sen as Anitha Pandiyan, an intelligence officer who gathers a team to investigate the disappearance
of Chandramouli. Anitha is strong-minded, ruthless and determined. However she nurtures a soft feeling for
Muthu during the course of the journey. The film became Reemma Sen's first attempt at parallel cinema
following a series of roles in commercial projects, and her portrayal was highly appreciated by film critics. Andrea Jeremiah as Lavanya Chandramouli, the estanged daughter of Chandramouli, who also embarks on
the journey to find her father. An archaeologist by profession, Lavanya becomes the quiet tactical leader
of the journey through her knowledge of the culture and the history of the Chola dynasty. Andrea Jeremiah,
like Karthi, appears in her second major role for the film, also singing parts of two songs which appear
in the soundtrack. During the making of the film news websites linked Andrea with the director,
Selvaraghavan, albeit to the pair's displeasure. R. Parthiban as Chola King, successor and last of the Chola dynasty after escaping an attack from the Pandyas.
The city that the Cholas lived in perished, resulting in the city becoming haunted with Parthiban,
the head of the people. The images for the Chola King, not dated or named in the film, were kept under
wraps prior to the movie's release. Parthiban signed for the role after much speculation that Dhanush
would be selected, and his performance won plaudits from critics. Pratap Pothan as Chandramouli, an archaeologist who went missing during a search for the Chola kingdom,
prompting a manhunt. Chandramouli earlier walked out on his daughter, Lavanya, and is later found trapped
in the Chola kingdom. Azhagam Perumal as Ravisekharan, who leads the army brigade in the search for Chandramouli. Known for his
exploitative and violent ways, Ravisekharan develops a mutual foe in Muthu and his fellow workers. Directed by Selvaraghavan Produced by R.
