Kangana Ranaut’s film ‘Thalaivi‘, which was in the headlines for a long time, is now ready to buzz the theaters. As everyone knows, it is the biopic of Jayalalithaa, a well-known South actress and 6-time CM of Tamil Nadu. The trailer of the film has received a lot of praise and the film also does not disappoint you. Known as Amma for her followers, Amu for her mentor, and Thalaivi (leader) for her party, Kangana proves to be twenty in every layer of Jayalalithaa.

Story: The story of the film takes place at the assembly site of the famous political event when Jayalalithaa (Kangana Ranaut) is humiliated by members of Karuna’s (Nassar) party by abusing her and pulling the pallu of her sari. At that moment, hissing like a hurt serpent, Jayalalithaa challenges that she will return to this assembly as chief minister. The story then goes back to the past, where teenager Jaya tries to become a heroine in films with her mother Sandhya (Bhagyashree) after dropping out of school.

Till the intermission, the story traces the love story of Jaya becoming the heroine of the film and South Superstar MG Ramachandran (Aravind Swamy). Post-interval, the story depicts Jayalalithaa’s rise to the political arena as Amma and rise to the top. In this story Jayalalithaa’s journey from floor to Arsh. It is a depiction of a woman’s self-respect and malevolent mindset, in which Jayalalithaa has to face constant inferiority and hindrance not only in films but also in a political career, but how she holds the strings of her selfless love on the strength of her passion on the CM’s chair. sits on.

Review: There is no doubt that director Vijay has portrayed this legendary character as larger than life on screen as well. Everyone knows that Jayalalithaa, known as the Amma of Tamil Nadu, has been embroiled in allegations of corruption and controversies throughout her political career, but as filmmakers often do, she avoids depicting controversial aspects while making a biopic. Here too the director did the same. All his emphasis was on the pure love story of MGR and Jayalalithaa and then on the climax of her political career.

The director has expedited the developments of the story. They capture the backdrop of the 80s-90s perfectly. Political rallies and crowd scenes during MGR’s death have become powerful. A lot of dialogue has been kept in the film to empower Kangana’s character. You also remember some dialogues. Vijendra Prasad’s music disappoints. The casting of the film is strong and Neeta Lulla’s costumes prove to be helpful in depicting that era.

Acting: When you see Kangana as Jayalalithaa on screen, you get an idea why Kangana would have been the filmmaker’s first choice for this character. Kangana has given a power-packed performance as Jayalalithaa. Be it the lightness of Kishori Jaya or the fierce form of Amma, Kangana plays every layer very well. She roars like a lioness to protect her self-esteem and shows a selfless love for her lover.

Her knotted blouse, Gaudi makeup, floral embellished hairstyle, and body language beautifully embodies the South heroine of the 70-80s. Arvind Swami has supported him a lot in the form of MGR. They bring MGR to life on screen. Nassar has been doing well in the role of Karunanidhi, but his part did not get much screen space. Raj Arjun as MGR’s colleague RMV has proved to be the surprise package of the film. His strong acting is the plus point of the film. Bhagyashree plays her role beautifully in the role of Kangana’s mother. Madhu is seen in the small role of MGR’s wife. The supporting cast is according to the story.
