The Accidental Prime Minister Review: 3 stars out of 5
Short Review: Honest attempt to showcase the tenure of Manmohan Singh with political PoV.
Direction: Biography genre is difficult one because execution matters a lot. Debutant director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte failed to impress the audience in this political drama.
Performance: Anupam Kher is the USP of this political drama. He try to mimic walking & talking style and copy the look of Manmohan Singh with so ease. Another great performance from Akshaye Khanna as Sanjaya Baru. Suzanne Bernert and Arjun Mathur tried to recreate Sonia and Rahul Gandhi on screen as Suzanne with typical Sonia’s accent and Arjun with Rahul’s dumbness. Vipin Sharma looks good in role of Ahmed Patel. Ram Avtar is originally a tea seller who played perfect role of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Screenplay: This department is another disappointment for the audience. Like for any book, writer always want his reader will turn the page with full of curiosity. So same logic apply on screenplay as well. If there is sharp screenplay, audience feel connect with movie however screenplay was pathetic in this movie.
Script: Story-line is totally borrowed from Sanjaya Baru’s same name book. So there is no scope for modification or add new thing in the script.
Box_office: This political drama earned 4.5 crores on day 1 which is decent opening for biography genre. On day 2, it has earned 5.25 crores which show good growth. This movie is second choice for audience after Uri.
Last words: This is not propaganda film or BJP sponsored film. If you are bored with Romance and Action genre, please try this.
