Star Solid: Vivek Oberoi, Darshan Kumar, Zarina Wahab, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan
Director: Omung Kumar
In one of many scenes in Omung Kumar’s ‘PM Narendra Modi’, we see Vivek Oberoi’s Modi unfurling the nationwide flag at Lal Chowk and chanelling his internal Sunny Deol by screaming his lungs out. One other one has him as a child feeding his drained mom whereas consuming his meal as some dramatic music performs within the background.
Properly, looking for subtlety on this movie is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Proper from the primary body until the final, the narrative is unidimensional.
To start with the plot, the movie initially provides us a glimpse of Modi as an ‘adarsh balak’ who lends a serving to hand to his father in promoting chai sporting a jerkin with ‘Sabki ki chai, modi ki chai.’ A couple of scene later, we even see him rebuke the follow of dowry throughout a theatre act.
Extremely impressed by Dev Anand’s character Raju Information from the movie ‘Information’, Modi units out searching for his true calling and embraces sanyas in opposition to his guardian’s needs. Till an ascetic with whom he mediates on the mountain cliff advises him to return to his folks to serve them.
He quickly joins RSS and sails his approach in direction of the Chief Minister’s seat. Be it the accusation of turning his again to the communal riots in his state to admonishing a corrupt minister in his cupboard, the person is each little bit of a ‘desi superhero’. With each milestone in his profession, the person gallops his approach in direction of lastly changing into the Prime Minister Of The Nation.
Omung Kumar by no means misses an opportunity to glorify Modi and current him as a larger-than-life hero. However relating to depiction of leaders from opposition, they’re lowered to mere caricatures to induce chuckles from the viewers.
Talking in regards to the performances, whereas the prosthetics does handle to do some magic for Vivek relating to his look, the actor wobbles relating to enacting his act. Funnily, his accent additionally slips at locations. Barring a scene or two, the person is satisfactory. Zarina Wahab as his mom manages to depart a mark.
The movie’s cinematography does have some shining moments. Then again, the enhancing scissors wanted to be somewhat extra sharper. The music of the movie is satisfactory.
As a substitute of giving us an perception into the inspirational story of a person, Omung Kumar treats us to a one-toned narrative that lacks any zing and finally ends up as a hagiography. I’m going with 1.5 star.
