The Accidental Prime Minister Review
Story of the movie:
The story starts in 2004, Lok Sabha Elections, when the voters of India choose Sonia Gandhi (Suzanne Bernert) as the winner in the most influential race of being a Prime Minister. But, because of certain political hurdles, she has to choose someone on her behalf to take the position. Without giving any back-track, we see how Dr Manmohan Singh (Anupam Kher) gets elected by Sonia Gandhi as the face of the party as the Prime Minister. Within no time he starts getting the hints how he’s just a puppet and there’s a unilateral power existing in the party.
Anupam Kher plays Manmohan Singh in an excellent manner. Akshay Khanna is outstanding in his role. Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi looks and acts her part with stoic seriousness. While, Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi and Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi have don’t have much to contribute.
The film’s music is good. The background score is very good as it supports the satire very well.
The film’s direction is good. Debutant director and co-writer Vijay Ratnakar Gutte will win accolades for choosing to do a political drama that can be referenced because of the usage of real names and situations pieced together.
Watch Or Not:
You should watch the movie, if only to find out how the game of politics is played.
