    One thought on “Kalki's Parthiban Kanavu - Dream of Parthiban”

    1. My suggestion is first read "sivagamiyin sabatham" then read this novel. It just a sequel to that novel and pre-sequel to "ponniyin selvan". But i read these books in reverse order. Still i enjoyed it.Parthiban Kanavu brings to life the glory of Tamil civilization. The description of the events cuts across both royal life style and the life style of the common man. The book is really awesome and very very delighting. There are very decent twist and turns you can enjoy reading till end.The pace i [...]

    2. I technically have the ability to read Tamil.But even on my best days,i don't think i could manage a page of Tamil prose without making my brain go bonkers.Obviously, i am not proud of this as Tamil is my mother tongue and I have studied it as my second language for a decent period of time.My reading habit started courtesy random books available at home. It is a little surprising that i have to slave over a passage of Tamil when both my parents read quite a bit of Tamil literature and we had ton [...]

    3. For those who wish to enjoy Kalki's genius yet do not have the patience for " Ponniyin Selvan" , this is a smart shortcut !

    4. This the sequel to Sivagamiyin Sabatham, the book is short compared to Sivagamiyin Sabatham and Ponniyin Selvan. Parthiban is Chola King who is paying tax to Pallava empire. When Narasimha Varman went to war with Pulikesi, Chola king stopped to pay taxes. Narasimha Varman successful return after defeating Pulikesi he summons the Chola king to pay the taxes. But Parthiban who knows his army is not match to Pallavas ask them to wage war. He takes his son Vikraman to his secret room and shows his d [...]

    5. Intrigue, suspense, romance, valor, courage, villainy, revenge, envy, loyalty, all showcased within a intricate story filled with unexpected twists and turns makes this an excellent historical romance, told with all of Kalki's trademark ability. Perhaps that a fuller and more measured treatment of the story - a la Ponniyin Selvan - would have been more satisfyingbut then again, you can't have everything. A gripping page turner!

    6. Oh such an exciting sequel of Sivagamiyin Sabatham. Time just flies in Kalki's novel. You travel with the characters for year, you see their birth, their childhood, their adolescent, their love, their entire life as if it is your own. I can't define by words. I feel proud to be a tamizhian, born on the same land these great people have lived. RESPECT.LOVE.

    7. The story of Patriotism, love and sacrifice. Parthiban Kanavu is the book every Tamilian should read and to get a glimpse of our glory,our history should be reminded to the people and Amarar Kalki does exactly that. Reading this novel has been a spine chilling experience for me.This novel deals with the attempts of Vikraman,son of Chola king Parthiban, to attain independence from the Pallava ruler, Narasimhavarman.The Cholas remain vassals of the Pallavas. Parthiban conveys his dream of the Chol [...]

    8. Many thanks to Kalki for bringing me the habit of reading books!!. When I was pursuing my Master's degree (2003) at Government College of Technology, Coimbatore, it was happened to read Kalki's "PARTHIBAN KANAVU" (thanks for my room-mate a good reader then), ofcourse I started the novel by 7.10 pm as a short time pass until the dinner 7.30 pm. But I was trapped by his writing and I lost my dinner that night and finally put down the book after 12.00. I never thought of reading a full book before, [...]

    9. The first of the trilogy of Kalki's historical magnum opuses, 'Parthiban Kanavu' boasts the richness of the Tamil Nadu and its people during the reign of Chola and Pallava dynasties. Written in a simple and lucid style without compromising the parlance of the language, this book is the best starter for anyone new to Tamil historical fictions. Though the story is simple, Kalki has interwoven the plot with everything the reader can dream for: beauty, harmony, gallantry, romance, satire, shock, hor [...]

    10. I have to say I was disappointed with this novel. Its nowhere close to its previous part - Sivakamiyin Sabatham which was a brilliant masterpiece. The main protagonist of this novel - Vikraman has absolutely no clue of what he is doing, let it be his ambition to accomplish his father's dream or his lady love.But the suspense of who the main character of the novel will make you tread slowly. The last 50 pages leaves you somewhat satisfied as there is more action and twists involved. One thing is [...]

    11. I'm going to be generous with my stars here and give this one 5 shining stars. But that doesn't mean it isn't good. It is; Just not Kalki's best. Still it is one of the better historical novels you can find in tamil. It is not long or as well-written as his other two masterpieces and I remember finishing it in hours. I have a definite soft spot for it since it is the first ever novel I read. Before that I just stuck with newspapers, magazines, etc. I should thank my dad for introducing me into t [...]

    12. well penned Tamil classic by kalki. The characterisation was too good. The flow of story seems to be guessing but with that mystery saivite monk thrill and suspense has been cleverly maintained by author. The pace of the story is as good as watching a movie. we can't time travel but if want to meet pallava and chola kings one can travel in parthiban kanavu. so overall PARTHIBAN KANAVU - parthiban kanavilirundhu meezhvadhu sulabam allahan thaakam vazhnaal muzhuvadhum thodarum!!

    13. This book gave me a new experienceYes this is the of any stuff that i read in my own native language""TAMIL""I take pride of my self that I successfully started my first book in TamilA sense of pride flows through my veins to say myself TAMIZAN.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:I have already heared some great things about AMARAR KALKI.I used to see many great people whom I Inspire took Kalki as InspirationAfter reading this book I came to know the reason

    14. Great to know this history with non-fictional incidents and characters. This is will the great book if any read this before "Ponniyin Selvan". If you get into this after PS, you will feel very normal as this won't fascinate in wy as PS did. Strictly IMO. :)As a whole, Worth the read

    15. Good historical novel to read It will be best, when you take it after reading Sivagamiyin sabatham. This is more or less like a sequel to Sivagamiyin Sabatham. Definitely we ll get inspired to visit Mahabalipuram after reading this combo

    16. A sequel to Sivagamiyin Sabadham. However I finished this earlier. Now the urge to visit mahabalipuram is even stronger. Vikrama chozhan's love for Kundavi has been crafted very beautifully A must read

    17. The author did not hurt both pallavas and chozhas A fairy tale ending perhaps Good but I would have been interested if it had had some bitter truths, when you plot for a throne.

    18. Parthiban Kanavu (PK) is a fast paced thriller right from the beginning to end!I had read this earlier in 2001 or 2002. And, forgot most of the plot by now when I started reading. It can be considered as a sequel to the "Sivakamiyin Sabadham" (SS). The heros of SS - "Narasimha Pallavan" and "Paranjothi @ Siruthondar" play important roles here in PK as well.The story revolves around Vikrama Cholan, Narasimha Pallavan, his daughter Kundavi, Marappan (Vikraman's uncle), a rower family on the banks [...]

    19. Parthiban Kanavu is that book that you start reading as a classic and find a masala movie in it! My first tamil read in sometime and was suitably rewarded for sticking to my long pending list of authors i wanted to read.The book narrates the story of the mighty Pallava king Narasimhavarman and the story of Vikraman, son of Parthiban the brave-hearted Chozha king. Reduced to a Vassal kingdom, the chozha king Parthiban refuses to pay tax to Pallavas and dies bravely. His dream of establishing an i [...]

    20. The tamil historical novel by Kalki Krishnamoorthy tells about the love between estranged Chola prince Vikraman with Pallava princes and daughter of Narasimhavarma Pallva, Kundhavi. Vikraman's father Parthiban, a heir of the almost extinct Chola empire is defeated in the war by Narasimha varma. In his death bed, he requests a saivite monk to take care of his young son and guide him to recover the lost fame and rule. The monk-in-disguise is non other than the Emperor Narasimha varma. The rest of [...]

    21. இது கல்கி கிருஷ்ணமூர்த்தி அவர்களால் கல்கி இதழில் தொடராக எழுதி வெளியான புகழ் பெற்ற வரலாற்றுப் புதினமாகும். இது பின்னர் நூலாக வெளிவந்தது. இச்சரித்திரக் கதையில் பார்த்திபன் எனும் சோழ அர [...]

    22. The book which is a sequel to 'Sivakamiyin Sabatham' is a nice historical work by Kalki. The story is awesome with historical background. The portrait of Pallava King and his ruling is excellent. The context in which 'Paranjothi' used is unpredictable.The story gives us the information about the kingdom with its bravery and the villains mingled with 'Kabalikas'.

    23. The novel is good.But, the narrative is very similar to Ponniyin Selvan. The set up is a different time in history but you cannot help notice the similarities between PS & PK.The story is aligned with history to the maximum. Instead of reading history books, kids can be given such books to make TAMIL history more attractiveVery good novel with racy script. A GOOD ONE from Kalki.

    24. This is one amazing novel in tamil.It is short , historic and romantic.The historic accounts mentioned in this book is true.One actually gets to know the history of Tamil Nadu through Kalki's work. awesome book. Maybe I am biased about the book because I am a Tamil as well.But this book is really a good work.

    25. This is absolute awesome book.It has love, responsibility and adventure.Thanks to Kalki for the happy endingAwesome king and her daughtersurprisingly I like some more characters Valli , her grand father and kullanKullan is very interesting charTotally complete package :-)

    26. A novel talks about King Narasimha Varman who flourished at South India and his courage . This story happend at nearly 7th century . Point is during his reign Pallava dynasty was at its heights .But none of us had known what would happen after 300 Years . The rise of king Raja Raja Cholan !

    27. I read this novel immediately after finishing Sivagamiyin Sabatham. just like Ponniyin Selvan this novel also about Chozha dynasty. Most of the characters in Sivagamiyin Sabatham used in this novel as well. One can get similar thrill of Sivagamiyin Sabatham by reading both back to back.

    28. I'm glad that I read this book after completing Sivagamyun Sabatham. I missed Narasimha Varman more than anything. I am happy to read about cholas after long time.This book is must read for the lovers of Sivagamyun Sabatham.Kalki never fails to amuse me.

    29. Very Good narration.Hope kalki got the inspiration to wrote ponniyin selvan from this novel but we are able to find the mystery character very easily. Still this is very good book to read. Read before ponniyin selvan.
