Let me try to write a review in Tamil :)

கரிகாலசோழரின வெமபோரை சிததரிககும இநநூலுககு காவேரி நதியின சிறபபையும, தமிழ கனனியரின அழகையும கலகி வரணிபபது ஒரு அணிகலனாக அமைகிறது.

ஆடவரின இதயம ஒருவருகருககு சொநதம இலலை எனபதை போல கடடும இளஞசெழியன,தமிழ பெணடிரின கறபுநெறியை காடடும பூவழகி,விதியை வழுவாது நமபும யவன ராணி ஆகிய மூவரும ஒருஙகே சேரநது கதைககு மேலும உயிர ஊடடியுளளனர.

இளஞசெழியன மறறும பூவழகிககு இடையேயான காதல ஊடல நகைககததககது.

வீரம இலலாத சோழரகளும இலலை, தமிழ காவியமும இலலை. இநத யவன ராணி நூலும அதறகு ஒரு விளககலல.
