Plot

The film focuses mainly about Sanjaya and his support to Manmohan Singh. The UPA government’s nuclear deal and the spectrum cases are also dealt. Do watch the film on the silver screen!

Star Performance

Anupam Kher impresses us with his performance. While watching the film, we will gradually, get into the story and travel with them. Akshaye’s performance is extraordinary. Similarly, Divya Seth has given out a good performance. Suzanne Bernert, the German actress, had rendered her best as Sonia Gandhi.

Analysis

Although it is taken from Sanjaya’s book, the director’s part is also important. The debutant director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte has done an excellent job and the audience could never feel that it is by a debutant director. The narration is clear throughout the film, except a very few places. Similarly, we have to appreciate the team for not changing the original names of the politicians. 2G spectrum case is also dealt and the film entertains us throughout without boring.

What’s There?

  • Star selection is excellent
  • Narration is impressive
  • Mentioning the real names of the politicians is appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • In a very few places, we could see the story lagging

Verdict

In total, the Accidental Prime Minister is a watch worthy movie for its content and the performances.
