The Accidental Prime Minister is an extremely professional attempt in India
The Accidental Prime Minister Review
STORY:- The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru.
ALERT:- It’s a fresh take on films based on politics.
POSITIVES:- In India, movies based on politics or biography based on a politician always face the heat. The accidental prime minister labeled as a propaganda film but it’s not a propaganda film at all. The script is very great & tight, the narration part by Akshaye Khanna is commendable. The way he interacts with the audience and every time he explains every situation in the PMO office is amazing. His acting & narration part is funny & light. His charm on screen is a treat to watch. @anupampkher has done a great job as a Dr. Manmohan Singh. His body language, expressions & soft spoken behavior is a carbon copy of Dr. Manmohan Singh. The dialogues are smartly written and it will leave an impact on your brain for sure. The locations are so believable and authentic. You will see how PMO office works and what kind of things they deal in PMO & why there’s coordination is really important with PM? You will see everything in this movie. Many scenes have been muted and cut due to political pressure from UPA. Yet it highlights the honest side of PM and corruption at the end of the congress. The best thing about his film is you will see all the real names of politician’s & there’s no fictionalize character at all. It raises some questions as well. It was a delight to get details, how things are fixed and stories are planted. This is the film that takes through an important era in Indian politics and less than a 2-hour duration will give you some knowledge and entertainment as well. The background music holds the scenes very gracefully. The cinematography is good & PMO locations look real.
NEGATIVES:- The direction in some parts is slow & the screenplay could have been more intriguing and pacey. Some dialogues could have been edited out as well.
2. Akshaye’s & Anupam Sir Performance
3. PMO office locations
VERDICT:- The Accidental Prime Minister is an extremely professional attempt in India.
