Synopsis:-An amusing and engaging look at the term of Dr. Manmohan Singh as India’s PM

Description: Is 'The Accidental Prime Minister' merely a propaganda film? Our answer would have to be no. While the Vijay Ratnakar Gutte directed 'biopic' can at worst be described as slightly caricaturish in nature with Dr. Manmohan Singh's mannerisms (in particular his style of walking and his voice modulation) lending itself to a humorous take on the big screen, and despite the timing of the movie's release, what stands out ultimately is the tale of a man who is catapulted into a political whirlwind and manages to hold on to his integrity despite provocations from every end.

Based on the 2014 memoir by policy analyst Sanjaya Baru on the tenure of Dr Manmohan Singh as the prime minister of India, the political drama starring Anupam Kher in the central role, has been mired in controversy ever since its trailer was first released, with cases filed against the people associated with the movie, including Kher, for 'defamation' of Singh as well as the constitutional position of the Prime Minister of India.

But we'd say Singh has nothing to worry about because the movie more or less portrays him as he is widely perceived - naïve, at times bewildered by the political shenanigans of his colleagues, but always earnest - a man thrust into a position of power, that he never aspired for. The Accidental Prime Minister, in fact, takes great pains to portray Singh akin to Bhishma from the Mahabharata, as the wise old man with no evil, who is only beset by family drama. Could this be termed whitewashing? Is Manmohan Singh getting off lightly for the misdoings of his party, and for the fact that despite being the prime minister, he had absolutely no control over his people and let himself be used as a puppet by the high command? Though Baru at one point refers to Singh as "spineless", 'The Accidental Prime Minister' showcases him as a morally upright 'politician', not a leader though, with a good sense of humor; a technocrat whose sole focus was the welfare of his country.

Story: Based on the book with the same name, The Accidental Prime Minister chronicles former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh’s (Anupam Kher) relationship with his media advisor Sanjaya Baru (Akshaye Khanna). While the film focuses largely on how Baru struggled with managing Dr. Singh’s public image, it also touches upon United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government’s key milestones, like the nuclear deal and Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s undisputed authority within the party.

Review: The Accidental Prime Minister opens with a heavily pixelated TV news footage from the 2004 victory of the UPA in the general elections. This quickly gives way to the actors behaving and looking strikingly similar to all real-life political players. The film could have easily degenerated into a tacky spoof-fest had it not been for its unusual execution and some stellar performances.

Kher leads the pack as the submissive Prime Minister, who is sworn-in amidst wide-ranging skepticism within the ranks. His performance progressively grows on you, gradually evoking empathy for his character. Kher makes Singh’s trademark soft-spoken demeanor and skittish walk, his own. You will find yourself rooting for him, whether he is mustering the courage to do the right thing, or succumbing to the powers that play him (read: dynasty politics)
