Thunai Mudhalvar (English: Deputy Leader) is a 2015 Indian Tamil political movie written by K. Bhagyaraj and directed by R. Vivekanandan. The film stars Bhagyaraj and Jayaram in the lead roles while Shweta Menon and Sandhya among others form an ensemble cast. Music for the film was composed by four different music directors and the film opened to negative reviews in April 2015.
During the audio launch of Bharathiraja’s Annakodi (2013) in January 2013, Bhagyaraj announced that he was working a script titled Thunai Mudhalvar Unopposed and that he was finalising the cast for the project. The film was launched in December 2013, with Jayaram signed on to appear alongside Bhagyaraj in the lead roles, while newcomer Vivekanandan would handle the film’s direction. Shweta Menon was also signed on, marking her fourth film in the Tamil film industry, as was Meenakshi, and the team began shoot in Pollachi.
Bhagyaraj “ghost-directed” the film, often changing the script and dialogues of the film on location. Meenakshi later opted out of the project and was replaced by Sandhya, who played Jayaram’s wife in the film.
