The Accidental Prime Minister, directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, has hit the theatres today. Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has shared the first review of the movie on twitter. 

The film is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru. It revolves around the life of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during his exercise period in India.  It features Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi, Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi, Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi and Akshaye Khanna as Sanjaya Baru who was the personal advisor for the former PM. 

The film showed that between 2004 and 2014, India had a weak Prime Minister who was remote-controlled by the Congress president and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi. 

Check out the Special Video recorded by Anupam Kher on the sets of the film in London 


Accidental Prime Minister is an out-and-out propaganda film. It has already erupted much controversy among various politicians and is created for the specific purpose of making the former prime minister look like a weak, spineless man, a puppet whose strings were controlled by The Family.  

Sonia Gandhi, Rahul, Priyanka and other power-hungry caucus around them are shown as the real power behind the throne. The film showed that Manmohan Singh was honourable, upright and personally incorruptible and he overlooked the corruption of his party colleagues.  

However, there is a complete absence of any art or craft in its making. Almost all the characters, like the two main leads, Singh (Kher) and Baru (Khanna), come off as caricatures. Kher minces through the film, his voice reedy, thin, shaky, his body language nervous and unconfident.
