The political drama Thalaivii has been launched right now and as anticipated, Kangana Ranaut and Arvind Swami have gotten masses of accolades. But one cannot deny the truth even the writers (Rajat Arora and Vijayendra Prasad) and director AL Vijay have executed a commendable job and in making the biopic entertaining but smart and dramatic. Rajat Arora, the well-liked author who has beforehand written movies like Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (2010), Taxi No 9211 (2006), The Dirty Picture (2011), kick (2014), Gabbar Is Back (2015) and many others and has introduced the mass parts and robust dialogues in the movie which have enhanced the impression. Bollywood Hungama completely caught up with Rajat Arora to discuss the movie and a lot extra
What suggestions have you ever received until now from the quite a few press screenings of Thalaivii?
It has been excellent. All the response has been very optimistic. Everyone has beloved the movie wholeheartedly.
How did you bag the movie?
The credit score has to go to Kangana. She was very eager that I get entangled on this movie. I used to be a little hesitant as a result of I’ve already executed biopics in the previous. But she was adamant and advised me “Aap hi ko yeh film karni padegi“! Eventually, I relented.
You have co-written the film with Vijayendra Prasad, who has written some blockbuster films Baahubali series, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), Mersal (2017) and many other films. How was the experience?
He is an institution. The interactions I had with him were a learning experience which I will utilize in my writing from now on. The passion that he brings was unmatchable. He is actually a very soft-spoken man but when he starts narrating and starts talking about the subject, he transforms into a different man altogether.
Could you explain the process of writing this film? It seems that you and Vijayendra Prasad have carefully ensured that the writing is simple and massy…
The challenge was that the politics and one upmanship going in the film becomes a human drama so that it can reach all kinds of audiences. At the end of it, whatever may be your plot, it is the human drama that works. So our idea was that kisi ko politics samaj mein aaye ya na aaye par aisa lagna chahiye ki Jaya (Kangana Ranaut) jeetni chahiye. There’s politics and there’s also the cinema aspect but ultimately, we want audiences to root for this woman.
The bond between MJR (Arvind Swami) and Jaya was beautifully and subtly depicted. Was this a challenge since both were legends in the field of politics?
It was definitely a challenge. I won’t call they had a romantic relationship but their bond changes as they age in the film. There’s a dialogue also in the film. Jaya tells MJR that “Kahin apne maa ban ke mujhe sahara diya aur kahin pita ban kar” As the film progresses, their relationship also matures. So when Jaya is young, her relationship with MJR is different from what it was after a few years year and both these were different from their bond when she joins politics at his insistence.
The scene where MJR calls Jaya before his death and she tells him “Aap sochte rehna, main samajti rahoongi“, that’s my favorite scene in the film. It shows that they have reached a stage where they can understand each other’s silence as well. The first time when Jaya and MJR interact, she says “Namaste” to everybody, together with the canine. This is the place she was a bit immature. And in the cellphone name scene, she has matured a lot that she will be able to perceive his silence as nicely and vice versa.
My favourite half of the movie was the funeral scene of MJR…
Yes, it has been mind-blowingly shot. It offers you goosebumps.
The movie begins with a political scene however then focuses primarily on Jaya’s movie profession. The political bit then comes into focus solely in the second half. What was the thought course of behind this concept?
The movie’s tagline could be very apt – ‘Cinema Se CM Tak’. So our movie focuses on how she entered showbiz and later switched to politics. So what occurred after she grew to become the CM shall be proven in the sequel. Yeh pehle padaav hai unki life imply. Ek legend banne ke peeche kya mushkilein aur dikkat thi, woh humne iss movie mein darshaya hai. You simply talked about that you just beloved the funeral scene of MJR. The cause why it impacted you a lot is since you have been so invested in that character. And it’s as a result of of the bond we confirmed of MJR and Jaya in the first half is why the funeral scene strikes you.
The Medu Wada observe was hilarious and elicited laughter even from the critics in press screenings. Was that your concept?
(Smiles) Yes, it was.
I believed so…
Aisi cheezein fundamental hello soch sakta hoon! (Laughs)
How was it working with Kangana Ranaut? There are that she usually interferes in the filmmaking course of…
She is a phenomenal actor. Aur phenomenal actor banne ke liye aapko movie mein poora ghusna padta hai. You can simply come, act, depart and anticipate an out of the world performance. You must nice tune your craft by understanding the nuance of the movie. And she understands it extraordinarily nicely. So I by no means felt interference from her at any degree. Everyone ought to have their level of view. If everybody merely turns into a ‘sure man’, toh koi faayda nahi hai. Toh isko interference kehna bewakoofi hai! If somebody feels that an actor’s job is to easily act and depart, that is foolishness. Look at her performance in the movie. Not even for a second do you are feeling that she just isn’t residing the function. It’s a National Award and each different award worthy performance.
Should Kangana Ranaut get her 5th National Award for Thalaivii?
She 100% deserves it. It’s the performance of a lifetime.
How was it working with Arvind Swami? He has additionally delivered a highly effective performance…
Agar aap MGR ka cinema aur unki politics dekhe aur fir aap Arvind Swami sir ki performance dekhe, toh aapko koi distinction lagega hello nahi! Kangana was exceptional however she was additionally aided as she had a pillar of assist in the kind of Arvind sir. He was excellent and in addition a nice individual in actual life. Also, the manner he modified his voice after MJR meets with an accident was nice. So there are a lot of finer nuances that individuals would get after watching it for the second time.
Raj Arjun as MJR’s PA was the shock bundle of the movie…
Yes, he is additionally too good and nice casting has been executed by Mukesh Chhabra. These actors have given their 100%. When the writing is sweet, even the actors carry out nicely. Watch out for him in the scene the place he says “Khushi ko haarna padega“
What are your ideas on the producers of the movie? It appears they’ve left no stone unturned whereas making Thalaivii…
The manner Vishnu Induri and Shaailesh R Singh have mounted the movie, the manner they’ve been affected person and have introduced the greatest technicians in every division is commendable. They have made the movie with a lot of love and affection. They waited with this grand movie for practically two years.
You simply talked about about a attainable sequel. So is Thalaivii 2 on the anvil?
Well, let that be a shock!
