The Accidental Prime Minister starring Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna has been one of the most talked about movies. While many have been eagerly waiting to watch the film, some critics and audience have already come up with review of the movie.
Based on the 2014 memoir written by Sanjaya Baru by the same name, The Accidental Prime Minister features Anupam Kher portraying the role of former PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh, Akshaye as political commentator Sanjaya Baru, Suzanner Bernert as Sonia Gandhi, Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi, Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi among others.
Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, The Accidental Prime Minister showcases former PM, Manmohan Singh's political journey from 2004 to 2014 under the UPA regime. While the trailer of the film received good response from the audience, it created a lot of hullabaloo due to the controversial aspects associated with it. Nonetheless, the film has released, and some initial reviews have come up, which praise The Accidental Prime Minister.
It is being called a must watch for every Indian, and it unveils the dirty world of politics. Although it may not cater to the masala entertainer seeking audience, The Accidental Prime Minister is being applauded for the brilliant performances and narration.
Khaleej Times: Every Indian should watch the movie, if only to find out how the game of politics is played within the four walls of a constitutional institution, and as Baru cheekily comments at the beginning of the movie, how the fate of a country of a billion people is decided by a handful of people. (3/5)
Anil Kapoor: Just like every role you do, @AnupamPKher you have done full justice to this character as well. You're such a great story teller! This definitely was a difficult film and could only be done by an actor par excellence. You are impeccable! #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister
Shekhar Kapur: Two very strong performances make #AccidentalPrimeMinister a must see film. Akshaye Khanna and Anupam Kher. Anupam creates Manmohan Singh as a man who seems weak but carries great strength inside. Yet ultimately finds that principles and politics do not go together.
Divya Dutta: Watched #AccidentalPrimeMinister .the supremely gifted @AnupamPKher performs the toughest role with such elan..m speechless.respect sire and big hug! Loved the way you say sanjya. So real vulnerable n yet strong. And another brilliant performance by #akshaye khanna!
