Sangamithra is a tale which goes back to the 8th century AD, telling the trials and tribulations of the protagonist Sangamithra, whose beauty is unparalleled, and her journey to save her kingdom. It is a story of many kingdoms, many equations, many relationships, told in an ambitious, larger than life, visually extravagant manner. Sangamithra is aimed at being the crown jewel of Tamil films, an ode to the oldest language in the world. While this is a piece of fiction, there are unexplored chapters in India's ancient history which will be opened through Sangamithra in the most visually beautiful manner. Sangamithra is a film which will be told in two parts.
This makes for exciting reading as Tamil film viewers have long yearned for the silver screen to represent the rich Tamil culture and it seems that their wishes will be granted with Sangamithra.
