PM Narendra Modi Biopic Review

Published

PM Narendra Modi Biopic Review,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Movie Reviews And Ratings, featured, Latest Bollywood movie news,PM Narendra Modi Review,PM Narendra Modi Movie Review,PM Narendra Modi Movie Rating,PM Narendra Modi Movie Story

Director: Omung Kumar

Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Anjan Srivastav, Darshan Kumar, Zarina Wahab, Rajendra Gupta, Boman Irani

Story

Just like the name of the biopic suggests, PM Narendra Modi is based on the life of Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Chronicling the beginning of his life as a tea seller at a railway station, the movie maps the political journey of the Prime Minister. The biopic climaxes at the point  where Mr. Narendra Modi swears in as the Prime Minister of India in the year 2014!

Review

Despite the release of PM Narendra Modi being delayed by the Election Commission of India (EC) till after the Lok Sabha elections, the release is nothing short of a victory parade. Since the beginning of the movie, the makers have made sure they pay tribute to PM Modi in every way possible.

Every frame is a tribute to the rise of man who was once a  tea seller at a railway station who rose to first become a RSS member and then the Prime Minister of the Country. For those who love the man unconditionally, this biopic is a reaffirmation of their faith but, for those who like to watch biopics with a solid dose of reality, will question the finer points.

While Modi is shown in almost  god like form, the opposition is shown as a weak and incompetent party. Perhaps what makes a stark notable point here is that Manmohan Singh has absolutely no speaking role in the film. While businessman Narayanan is seen working with journalist Kumar to bring down Mr. Modi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are shown as figureheads with not much of a role.

The only other character in the film who has almost as much screen space as Mr. Modi is Boman Irani, who plays the man responsible for giving Gujarat the Tata Group. Unlike other biopics (Thackeray for example,) PM Narendra Modi offers no points of debate.

Overall, the film is worth a watch if you are a Narendra Modi Ji fan but not if you want to watch a well thought out biopic.

PM Narendra Modi Trailer Released, PM Narendra Modi biopic trailer out, Vivek Oberoi latest film trailer, PM Narendra Modi Biopic Trailer Launch, Vivek Oberoi's PM Narendra Modi movie news, Mango Bollywood, Vivek Oberoi Upcoming movie news, Modi Biopic Movie Latest update, PM Narendra Modi Movie latest news

After a long wait (and just short of the Lok Sabha elections,) the trailer of the biopic about PM Narendra Modi was released today. With Vivek Oberoi playing Narendra Modi, the trailer maps out the Prime Minister’s life from before his entrance into politics to being a Prime Minister. With subtle prosthetics and makeup done the right way, Oberoi has pulled off Modi’s character perfectly.

Opening to the days of Modi’s life as a tea seller at a railway station, the trailer moves forward to show how Modi ended up as one of the most important persons in India. With hard hitting slogans, the tri colour fluttering with pride and hints of anti Pakistani sentiments, this movie is a tribute to Modi. Watch the trailer here and now!


Apart from giving us an insight into Modi’s life, the trailer also shows us what to expect from the different characters in the film. Furthermore, it also shows us Modi’s life as a child and about his self imposed exile from family and marriage life. From rescuing Muslims, to saving a burning Gujarat and to the victory of Modi’s party in 2014, this trailer shows Narendra Modi as not just a leader, but a man of action.

While some people argue, this movie is about furthering and promoting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the Lok Sabha elections, others say it is a dedication to the Party’s leader. Also starring Boman Irani, Manoj Sinha, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Bisht, Darshan Rawal, Akshat R. Saluja, Anjan Shrivastav, Rajendra Gupta and Yatin Karyekar, this biopic is directed by Omung Kumar.


With most of the film shot in Gujarat, the biopic is co produced by Sandeep Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit. Initially scheduled to release on the 12th of April, the release date of PM Narendra Modi was changed. This movie is now slated to hit the screens on the 5th of April this year.

Kalank First Song Ghar More Pardesiya Out Now, Kalank song Review, Kalank first song, Ghar more Pardesiya from Kalank, Madhuri Dixit and Alia Bhatt Kalank, Mango Bollywood, Alia Bhatt Kalank Video Song, Alia Bhatt Upcoming Movie News, Kalank Latest News and Updates

After keeping us all waiting with bated breath for something other than just a teaser, the makers of Kalank have finally released a brand new song! Titled Ghar More Pardesiya, this new song doesn’t have a conventional pair as the lead but is instead, centered around Alia Bhatt’s and Madhuri Dixit’s characters.

Written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the voice has been given by Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Mhade. The song opens to Alia Bhatt’s and Varun Dhawan’s characters entering a Ramleela performance. While on the one side of the stage, Laxman draws the epic Lakshman Rekha in front of Sita, Madhuri Dixit’s character is seen swinging on the other side. Listen to the song here.

What makes this song stand out is the way the attention to detail and the old school charm the song has. From the way the song was picturised, to the way Madhuri and Alia are dressed, the picturisation of this song has been perfectly done.

Days before the song was released, Alia teased everyone with tiny bits and pieces about how the shoot for the song went, “A song that gave me sleepless nights, days & months is coming very very soon.. I think you can safely say that I have never been SO nervous for anything in my life.. *screams frantically and hides under bed* You may have to send a search party to find me. Meanwhile watch this space for more.”

Directed by Abhishek Varman (known for other brilliant movies like 2 States,) this movie is the most awaited film of this year. Also starring Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur in key roles, Kalank is all set to hit the screens on the 17th of April this year!

When Alia Bhatt made her first faux pass on the show Koffee With Karan, many thought this particular star kid wouldn’t last for a long time. However, the then one movie old actress learnt to not only laugh at herself, but made sure people started taking notice of her because of her movies, not because of her blunders on national television. Here is taking a look at some of the truly brilliant performances given by this extremely talented actress!

1. Student of the Year

To talk about Alia Bhatt’s best performances and not have Student of the Year on the list is quite a bold dismissal. Making her debut as the rich brat, Shanaya, Alia made sure she more than made her presence felt. With a confidence not many possess in their first movie, Alia certainly proved she was a great actress in the making with Student of the Year!

2. Highway

While Highway maybe a couple of years after Student of the Year, this movie proved how much Alia could achieve if she had a great director showing her the ropes. Transforming from a ditsy newbie to a strong individual, Highway was quite definitely her ticket to fame in the world of Bollywood. From the moment this particular movie hit the screens, everyone knew they had a brand new star in their midst and why not? Playing the role of a girl who sympathises with her kidnapper and shows the world just how strong she is on her own, Alia blew the roof with her brilliant acting. Not bad for a mark maker at all!

3. 2 States

When it comes to doing a movie like 2 States, it is hard to picture someone like Alia Bhatt fitting into the lead role. A girl from Chennai, without any over the top glamour, falling for a boy from Punjab. Who would have thought Alia could have done justice to the role? In fact, many would have thought a character reversal was definitely in the works for this particular movie. However, just like with her other movies, Alia proved otherwise. Playing the role of Ananya, a girl who in every way wants to do what she believes is right, Alia made a lasting impression and won over even the coldest of hearts. Furthermore, she proved with 2 States that she was never going to be pigeonholed into playing only a certain role!

4. Udta Punjab

When Udta Punjab started doing the media rounds, it took people a certain amount of time to come to terms with the fact that the main lead was played by Alia. Completely letting go off her glamorous look, Alia Bhatt dug deep into the Punjabi girl she was playing and boy, did she work her character well! Fierce like never before and paying attention to every detail, Alia Bhatt more than proved her salt as an actress who was here to stay. From playing the victim, to pushing everything away and owning her confidence, Alia rose to show the world she was going to rule the Bollywood roost.

5. Dear Zindagi

Unlike the above mentioned films, Dear Zindagi saw a different side of Alia. Playing the role of a confused and vulnerable daughter, Alia showed everyone that in order to know who you are, you have to start accepting everything about yourself. Playing a part glamorous and a part simple character, Alia was quite a treat to watch in this particular movie.

6. Raazi

Another movie which brought out the finesse in Alia’s acting skills was Raazi. From the way she proved herself in a new house, to protecting her home from a life threatening war and to coming to terms with the fact that even her life was dispensable, Alia’s role in this movie was commendable. Despite everyone else doing a really great job with their characters, it was Alia who stood tall and strong in this movie.

As the actress turned a year older a couple of days ago, it is fitting to say that not only has she grown in age, she has also grown as an actress. Someone once said, for an actress like Alia to blossom, she needs a good director guiding her forward. If these movies are anything to go by, then that fact is certainly true!
