While The Accidental Prime Minister might not be as well written and made a film as Uri:The Surgical Strike, the phenomenal hatred it’s been receiving from almost every left-liberal corner of narrative, debate or politics in a repeated manner (The Quint just posted a yet another hate-filled review in the form of a video, spewing poison on the film — third or fourth in a row since its release — surely tells us that it mercilessly hits where it hurts the most: the ‘holy family’, and the ecosystem of leftist stooges drawing direct and shameless blood-soaked benefits from the same for decades.

The Accidental Prime Minister: Trailer

The film categorically takes the name of the “National Advisory Council” right in the initial 15 minutes as a powerful body that will purportedly work as a “pro-poor policy think tank” and ‘keep the left happy’ (sic). It features Manmohan Singh clearly lambasting the leftists, referring to them as the mischievous elements who “disturbed PV Narasimha Rao and Atal Bihari Vajpayee”.

The movie exposes the gross and insulting behaviour the holy family of the Congress and its bootlickers (Ahmed Patel being the foremost one) had meted out to the body of Rao. It unabashedly shows how the left and the family were standing against Singh in striking down the much-needed nuclear deal with the US while both APJ Abdul Kalam and AB Vajpayee firmly stood by him in giving the agreement a defiant go-ahead.

The film has no songs. It is devoid of any cinematic element that may be referred to as even remotely commercial, and it does not offer an iota of entertainment to an average movie goer. Still, the reactions to the video by commoners exiting the theatres on YouTube since Day One very clearly prove they loved it — which was a surprise to me.

Talking of plain box office numbers, if you please, The Accidental Prime Minister was released on 1,300 screens nationwide. It grossed Rs 3.52 crore, Rs 5 crore and Rs 6 crore respectively on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of its opening weekend, totalling its first-weekend business figures to Rs 14.52 crore.

Putting things in perspective, the much-publicised horny saga revolving around highly-sexualised pyaar (appropriately named ‘fyaar’ in the film itself), with heavy doses of booze-fag-sex-powered liberal feminism, namely, Manmarziyaanmade by none other than the official Che Guevara of Bollywood, Anurag Kashyap, released on 2,500 screens across the nation last September, despite all the hoopla and innumerable paeans sung by the entire left-liberal jamaa’t-ul-movie-critics, managed to score only Rs 3.25 crore, Rs 4 crore and Rs 4 crore on its first three days, amounting to Rs 11.25 crore as its first weekend collections.

Just comparing the two films gives us a much clearer picture as to how this film is being received by the common, ordinary, ticket-buying audience of this nation, whatever the venom-spewing movie critics and political outfits say.
