The Accidental Prime Minister Review

Story of the movie: 

The story starts in 2004, Lok Sabha Elections, when the voters of India choose Sonia Gandhi (Suzanne Bernert) as the winner in the most influential race of being a Prime Minister. But, because of certain political hurdles, she has to choose someone on her behalf to take the position. Without giving any back-track, we see how Dr Manmohan Singh (Anupam Kher) gets elected by Sonia Gandhi as the face of the party as the Prime Minister. Within no time he starts getting the hints how he’s just a puppet and there’s a unilateral power existing in the party.

Star Performance:

Anupam Kher plays Manmohan Singh in an excellent manner. Akshay Khanna is outstanding in his role. Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi looks and acts her part with stoic seriousness. While, Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi and Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi have don’t have much to contribute.
