A sequel entitled Chandramukhi 2 was set to be made featuring Rajnikanth but he declined the film and the script was passed along to Ajith who also declined. Since no film producers at the time wanted to pick up the film, the rights to the film were sold to a Telugu director. The spiritual sequel to Chandramukhi, Nagavalli, starring Venkatesh Daggubati and Anuskha Shetty was released in 2010 in the Telugu language. The film features partial dialogues in Tamil during the flashback scenes of Chandramukhi and the king, however a dubbed version of the film in the Tamil language never released. See more »
Good Movie, but it lacks the reality in the Malayalam Original "Manichitrathazhu". Mohanlal's acting deserves special credibility. Rajni manages without his cigars very well.
The lighting effects prove stupendous & innovative. Foot tapping numbers by Vidyasagar. But the dry & double meaning comedy lets the film down.
One question, Why is the Huge Python creeping there for in there for? the creepy house sequences are well done. Jyothika is the star performer here, she did very well in the dancing sequences & in the face reactions. But i think Ramya Krishnan would be a better choice for the role of Ganga.
Overall good one & worth the money.
