The Accidental Prime Minister is that one movie which has faced the limelight initially for all the wrong and controversial reasons, pretty much like what Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ faced last year..
However despite facing a lot of flak from the Congress and also after shows being cancelled in Kolkata due to the hooliganism of the Congress, the movie has been appreciated by the audience to a good extent..
However there has been a section of the media who have categorized the film as a one serving propaganda and nothing else..
In fact Raja Sen of HT’s review was soooo against the film and Anupam Kher that it made Anupam Kher instead share the review on his Twitter account and laugh at the review himself.
However this time Anupam Kher decided to share a chain of reviews for the first time which are entirely in favour of the film.
He tweeted –
Hamari film #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister ke kuch reviews. Ye shayad Woh critics hai jinohone hamari ‘film’ ka review kiya hai. Kisi mangadant propaganda bagara ka nahi. Aap sab ka bahut bahut dhanyawad. Baki logon se yahi kahoonga,”Lage raho”. ??? @TAPMofficial
From the above tweeted, it doesn’t take rocket science to understand that Kher has been at his supreme best in the game of sarcasm.. So was this tweet actually a dig at critics like Raja Sen? Well it definitely seems so.
The film despite facing protests and show cancellations has managed to mint 12 crores in the BO in it’s first weekend.
