The Accidental Prime Minister Movie Review: A Sneak Peak in The Movie

Published

on

The Accidental Prime Minister

Anupam Kher starrer film the Accidental Prime Minister was basically made to make the former Prime Minister look a weak, spineless man who was nothing more than a puppet who was controlled by the Family. The movie has some finest actors along with Akshaye Khanna, Vipin Sharma, Suzanne Bernet, Munish Bhardwaj, Arjun Mathur, and Aahana Verma. Vijay Ratnakar Gutte has directed the movie.

A book with the same title has picked the story. The movie is about the story that is very personal during the UPA rule when the prime minister was Dr. Manmohan Singh and Sanjay Baru was his media advisor.

The film has carefully honored the former Prime minister but has portrayed him as a weak man who was controlled by the family. The words have been blipped but it was evident that film is revolving around Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.

He was incorruptible but has overlooked corruption of his colleagues due to family’s far-reaching influence. The movie has nothing new it has a narrative of which we are already aware. Even the ones who kept close eyes on the development of those times the movie has nothing new for them.

The movie was well desired by the audience but still, it lost its way to impress the viewers. The movie had no art or craft. Even the finest actors Kher and Khana could not help much and appear just as caricatures.

Kher never appeared to be taking the grip he was always a very week and nervous. His voice was shaky and never once it could be believed that he is playing the man who held the chair of Prime Minister for two full Lok Sabha terms.

Khanna who is playing Baru tried to score a point and turns around the audience to address them and break the illusion or ‘reel’ and ‘real’. he looks great and person of power in his sharply tailored suits and with his smug and smirks he tries to hold the script.

He has access to corridors and lanes of power to which very ministers even from the top front have access to. The movie was more about Baru than the PM himself and thus could have been made with his name.

The stir that it created was not worth it and has no script at all. The movie will disappoint you and can be claimed as a movie that one will watch accidentally.
