Thalaivi Movie: Storyline
In 1989, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi was questioned by opposition leader J. Jayalalithaa(Jaya) about corruption charges and eavesdropping levelled against her party. She demands his resignation and upholds former chief minister MGR as someone who indeed served the people. However, the opposition questions her relationship with MGR, resulting in a brawl after Jaya is slapped. Some MLAs from the ruling party attempt to disrobe Jaya; comparing herself to Draupadi, she pledges that she would return to the session only after becoming the chief minister.
The film went into a flashback in 1965. MGR was at the peak of his film career, and producer R.M. Veerappan had fired Saroja Devi due to rumours of an affair with MGR. Veerappan also destroyed all traces of her character in a forthcoming film to preserve MGR’s reputation as a “god.” Furthermore, 16-year-old Jayalalithaa replaced Savitri in the film under pressure from her mother, Sandhya, who had been an actress herself. However, she took a softer stance once she realised her mother only wanted her to succeed in the industry.
