Anupam has lifted all the mannerisms of the former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh. But I personally feel that injustice was done in "The Accidental Prime Minister". Anupam Kher's movie has managed to earn Rs 4.50 crore on its first day at the box office. The film from media advisor Baru's point of view shows the life and journey of Manmohan Singh as the Prime Minister of India for two Lok Sabha terms during United Progressive Alliance (UPA). Other films that have been released this week are Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike and Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister. They also raised slogans against the actors and the producer of the film. We will not allow the film to be screened anywhere, " Congress leader Rakesh Singh told IANS. "'The Accidental Prime Minister" released on January 11 starring Anupam Kher along with Akshaye Khanna, Arjun Mathur and Suzanne Bernert in major roles. The film has mainly opened to poor reviews.
"We've stopped screening of the film from today, the second day after its release, apprehending (any) untoward incident after parts of a screen were torn up in a multiplex in a mall at Park Circus", Navin Chokhani, the owner of single-screen Navina Cinema, said. The film is based on the eponymous book by Sanjaya Baru.
The Accidental Prime Minister makers will be further disappointed seeing the lukewarm response by the public in theatres. For now, the makers and producers should ensure the functional TamilRockers site with The Accidental Prime Minister movie download link is removed and blocked immediately.
