Anupam Kher delivers a powerful performance in The Accidental Prime Minister trailer – watch video

After months of wait and anticipation, the makers of The Accidental Prime Minister have unveiled the film’s trailer. Based on the 2014 memoir of the same name, the film revolves around the life of Manmohan Singh, the economist who served as the Prime Minister for 10 years from 2004 to 2014.

Just yesterday, Kher had taken to social media to announce that the film’s trailer will be unveiled on Thursday. And while his impersonation in the video message was spot on, his performance in the trailer is bang on. When it comes to depicting a real-life personality on screen, it sometimes becomes an added pressure, but for Kher, it seems to be a smooth transformation.

From perfecting the pauses to effortlessly pulling off his dialogues – Kher has sewn the intricacies of the character together with a proper focus on detailing and thankfully so.

Directed by debutant Vijay Dutt and written by Hansal Mehta, the film also sees Aahana Kumra and Arjun Mathur in key roles. While Aahana essays the role of Priyanka Gandhi, Arjun Mathur plays Congress president Rahul Gandhi. Reverred actor Suzanne Bernert plays the role of former Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Akshaye Khanna plays political commentator Sanjaya Baru and seems to be in top form.

Even before the trailer release, the film had garnered a lot of attention presumably for its theme. The film is now slated to release on January 25 and fans can’t help but wait to see the biographical film.
