All of these look like bahubali wannabes, not that I was that impressed with that one either.  

 

Which is sad, because the Cholas were frikkin amazing.

Agreed.

 

They should stick just to the celebration of story. 

 

But instead the main aim here is to "prove the pride of Tamil Cinema" by becoming the greatest Commercial success.

Yes a 1000 year dynasty is a brief period 

Yes the dynasty had severe up & downs with constant fighting with neighbouring kingdoms & regime changes.  They were vassal states during Mauryan rule. 

Chola's peak was brief..  After a rule of 80 odd years Sinhalese people finally kicked them out & thereafter it was a slide for them. 

Still doesn't take the fact away that they were the greatest of Tamil kingdoms.   And on of the finest in Indian history.

They weren't vasals of Muryans

 

Quote

“The earliest mention of the Cholas comes from records of an abortive attempt by a Mauryan invasion led by Bindusara, the father of the illustrious monarch Ashoka, eloquently described by the Sangam poet Mamulanar7. The Mauryas cut for their chariots a new path across rocky mountains and launched an invasion with their feudatory, the Vadugars, in the vanguard, but were stopped in their
tracks by the Mohur chieftain at South Arcot district8. Later inscriptions make it clear that this was indeed a one-time misdirected adventure, quite uncharacteristic of the great emperor. That seems to be the last time that South India faced a major invasion from the far north. Ashokan edicts distinctly admit that the Tamil kingdoms were never subject to him.”

Excerpt From
Rajaraja Chola

Looks great... Cholas were great Kingdom for a brief period in South India.  Teaser looks grand.   


Lol… cholas ruled for 1200 years they are one of the longest historical dynasty in the world ( longest in India by a country mile lol) , only imperial house of Japan ( Yamato) who are currently attested ( modern day ) have survived longer.. 

 

they were at their peak the largest maritime Indian empire as well.

 

hehe so ignorant

Ashokan pillar edicts name the areas where he said that war of Dharma has been won & he mentioned it extends up to Tamraparni river in the extreme south.  Also accounts say that he was chief guest in a Pandyan court once.  So they were kinda like vassal states on a friendly term. 

It's not mentioned that he conquered these lands like his father Bindusara who tried very hard...  But got repelled by combined forces of Moovendras (Chera + Chola +Pandya)  In fact he tried multiple times in a span of 13 years.  He succeeded in establishing his bases on the outskirts of these kingdoms like  Thulu Nadu (pazhi fort).. But wasn't able to advance further. 

This is the same expedition that Sangam literature calls  large so called Aryan invasion into Tamil land.

Sangam literature claiming Aryan invasion is highly debatable in terms of interpretation. Moreover chronologically there are absurd predictions of timelines of Sangam that don’t align with even western historians. If you are debating from Wikipedia historians then you can’t be so very right . Our puranas timelines don’t match with the western historians’ and it is debatable
