Thalaivi Movie Story

Thalaivi movie is an upcoming Bollywood multilingual biographical film regarding the life of J. Jayalalithaa, politician and film actress who served six terms as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Kangana Ranaut is playing the role of Jayalalithaa. The film is directed by A. L.

Vijay and produced by Vibri Media in collaboration with Karma Media & Entertainment. Simultaneously shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages under the same title, filming began on 10 November 2019.The film is scheduled for release on 23 April 2021.

Thalaivi movie is the life story of  J. Jayalalithaa who has been a film actress and politician. She has been the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu six times. She has always been the most talked about personality in the south. The first look of the movie has been released and Kangna Ranaut is seen being transformed from a bubbly actress to a poised politician.

The transformation is very apt, and we just feel as if we are seeing the Thalaivi herself. Thalaivi movie is being talked about for  its prosthetic make-up which has been done by artists from USA. 

Kangana Ranaut took to Twitter to share a video announcing the release date of the film and wrote, “To Jaya Amma, on her birth anniversary. Witness the story of the legend, Thalaivi, in cinemas on 23 April 2021.”

 Thalaivi also stars Arvind Swami, Priyamani and Bhagyashree. The film will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. 

 Thalaivi will now be clashing with Yash Raj Films’ Bunty Aur Babli 2, which is also slated to arrive in theatres on 23 April this year. 

Thalaivi, which has been directed by AL Vijay, who was MGR’s protege.

“It was not just an honour to play the role of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, but a great responsibility. I thank director AL Vijay & producers Vishnu Vardhan Induri and Shaailesh R Singh for having faith in me. I humbly post these pics in Thalaivar’s memory, today (sic).” he wrote.

As per the trailer of the movie, it has been revealed that lots of efforts have been put in the making of the movie so that it could look as realistic as possible.

Ranaut, who was last seen in sports drama Panga (2020), spent close to six months prepping for the project. Though the movie was impressive yet it could not create that impact on audiences as it was expected like Tanu weds Manu series. She attended Bharatanatyam classes, learnt Tamil and spent hours in prosthetic make-up sessions. No doubt , she has been a hard working actress and that’s why she has been acclaimed as the highest paid Bollywood actress.

When the decision was taken to cast Kangana as Jay lalithaa, there was some backlash. Vijay, however, justified his decision, stating, “This is a pan-India film, and Kangana is apt for the role. She is one of the biggest stars in India today and I think it is right that a top star plays the role of an important politician. This way, the story will also reach audiences across India. We consider this a pan-Indian film, not a regional one.”

The music of the movie is given by GV Prakash Kumar while Nirav Shah is the cinematographer. Veteran writer Vijayendra Prasad, who wrote Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), was roped in to oversee the writing process.

Apart from all this, when the movie was announced, Jayalalithaa’s niece, Deepa Jayakumar, in November 2019, filed a complaint against the film’s makers stating that she was the legal heir of Jayalalitha and that before making a movie or a web series about her life, the creators of the film should have approached her and shown her the whole script before movie comes to the theatres.
