Anupam Kher in Accidental Prime Minister

Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh

The Accidental Prime Minister is an amusing and engaging look at the term of Dr Manmohan Singh as India’s PM.

Director:

Vijay Ratnakar Gutte

Writers:

Sanjaya Baru (book), Karl Dunne (Screenplay) |

Stars: Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna, Suzanne Bernert, Divya Seth Shah |

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). 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.

German actress Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi looks and acts her part with stoic seriousness. Actors playing Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi sadly, don’t have much to contribute. Divya Seth Shah as the first lady Gursharan Kaur is impressive with her understated performance.
