Both critics and viewers responded favourably to the film. Over INR 300 crore were earned by the movie globally across all languages. Both Allirajah Subaskaran's company Lyca Productions and Mani Ratnam's production company Madras Talkies supported it.
The historical drama is based on the 1955 Tamil novel of the same name by Kalki Krishnamurthy. It details the early life of Arulmozhivarman, one of the most powerful rulers in the South, who later rose to become Rajaraja Chola I, the great Chola emperor. He was the emperor of the Chola empire in the tenth century, and he is still well-liked today.
