Ponniyin Selvan I is based on Kalki Krishnamurthy's 1955 novel of the same name, which tells the story of the early life of Arulmozhivarman (Ponniyin Selvan), who would become the Chola emperor Rajaraja I (947–1014). The film will be followed by its sequel next year.

Aishwarya Rai plays the role of Queen Nandini in the film. She has a dual role but the other character was revealed only in the end and is expected to have a bigger part in part 2. Vikram and Jayam Ravi play prince brothers Aditha Karikalan and Arulmozhi Varman, respectively. Trisha plays their sister, Princess Kundavai. The film also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Prakash Raj, R Parthiban, Aishwarya Lekshmi and Jayaram in pivotal roles.

PS 1 released in theatres on Friday alongside Pushkar Gayathri's action thriller Vikram Vedha, starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan. Few cast and crew members from both the films have praised each other.
