Walking the talk of the town, The Accidental Prime Minister stole the entire nation’s anticipation prior its release. Now that the movie reached its penultimate show time moment in the theatres, it’s gathering a highly positive response.
Lauded with appreciation over the extraordinarily raw performances from a proficient ensemble, audience hearts the lead Anupam Kher’s appearance and diction. They can’t get over the undeniably striking resemblance Kher’s appearance and diction draws to the former Indian PM. The global actor’s look and body language ended up being eerily similar to Mr. Manmohan Singh with his usual turban and white beard.
A source informs, “Playing an instrumental political figure in Indian history, Kher worked hard to get into the skin of his designated character. Working insanely on his vocal modulation, he extensively practiced for 3-4 hours daily for two months to perfectly match the voice of our infamous PM.”
“Kher admits to this role being one of the most difficult roles he’s ever portrayed onscreen throughout his revered journey of 515 films and international projects. Apparently, everyone’s perseverance paid the price as the film is not only enjoying an encouraging response at the box office but also earning genuine critical appraisal from the audience, critics and industry alike,” the source adds.
Helmed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the movie featuring Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna in pivotal roles is based on the controversial book written by Sanjaya Baru who served Mr. Singh once as his media advisor. The film follows making and unmaking of the Indian PM from his tenure commencing from 2004 till 2014. The plot proves to be more than just a personal journey of a common technocrat and economist transforming into India’s most influential politician.
It was an instant hit due to its vulnerable yet authentic stance on baring the reality behind those diplomatic speeches and friendly handshakes!
