The teaser of Thalaivi starring Kangana Ranaut is out. It has received mixed reactions. While her role as young Jayalalithaa has received appreciation, her transformation as Thalaivi has not met expectations, if comments on social media is something to go by.

The life story of Jayalalithaa is all set to come alive on the big screen as 'Thalaivi' that will release in Tamil, Hindi, and Telugu. The movie is directed by AL Vijay.

One of the trolls stated that Kangana as Thalaivi is the same as when expectation about a law being implemented goes wrong.

Another troll claimed: Even Kamal Haasan could have been better choice for Thalaivi. Kangana Ranaut looks like someone blew air into an Annabelle doll.

Could Kamal Haasan or even Chutki's mother (in Chota Bheem) look more like the original Thalaivi than Kangana?

MyNation's Just for Laughs section has a meme that resonates this thought.
