Ahead of Thalaivii’s release, the Kangana Ranaut star had a special screening in Hyderabad and those who managed to see her praised her brilliant performance. While Kangana’s portrayal of Jayalalithaa floored many, Arvind Swamy also appears to have left a mark with his stellar portrayal of MGR (Maruthur Gopala Ramachandran).
Thalaivii, based on the life of the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, is set to hit theaters on September 10. It will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film presents the various aspects of Jayalalithaa’s life, retracing her journey as an actress from a young age to become the face of Tamil cinema as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of Tamil Nadu politics.
While some people have called Thailavii one of the best biopics ever made in India, some praise the creators for presenting Jayalalithaa’s story in an engaging way.

I got to watch a preview of #Thalaivii at AGS. Good movie with a solid starcast. The first half was fast, engaging, dropped a bit in the second half. Aravind Swamy was amazing as usual and #KanganaRanaut effortlessly played the role of Jaya. Better version than other Jaya based TV series pic.twitter.com/zioMP2YcKu

I’m not saying this because Vijay is a brother to me, but, #Thalaivii is among the most sensitive and sensitive biopics that I have seen.
The love between MGR and Jaya is pure, raw, honest and yet human.
We rarely see the human side of actors and politicians.
A must see.

After hearing the news, Kangana, who had previously taken to Instagram to ask the owners of the multiplex for the screening of Thalaivii, said she was moved by the decision.
