PM Narendra Modi Trailer: Mother of All Propaganda
The trailer of the much-awaited movie is out starring prosthetic laced Vivek Oberoi. The film is directed by Omung Kumar.
As we know, the Lok Sabha election is around the corner and political parties are busy with the election campaigns.
The ruling party doesn’t want to lose any single chance to win the elections, so the PR team comes with an idea. ‘Why can’t we make a movie on our prime minister and release during the election’, and henceforth, this film is created.
The trailer is laced with a great mix of a gimmick and, jingoism.
The trailer begins with Modi’s journey from a tea-seller to Prime Minister Narrative, his immense love for the country, and its flag.
As the trailer suggests, after roaming the mountains, valleys, and jungles of India in his quest to becoming a sanyasi, Modi finally lands up in RSS then goes on to play a crucial role as an underground rebel disguised as a Sardar, during Indira Gandhi’s Emergency rule.
The most disappointing part is the way it showed the Gujarat riots. Narendra Modi, the chief minister of Gujarat, was heavily criticized for his handling of the situation his shown in this film who is deeply in empathy.
“Mera Gujarat jal raha hai,” cries a helpless CM Modi as he looks around him and watches his state literally burning during the riots of 2002.
And the end of the trailer, Narendra Modi declares, “Chetavani deta hoon main Pakistan ko, agar dobaara hum par haath uthaya, toh haath kaat doonga,”.
This looks like Sunny Deol’s character Tara Singh’s soul from the movie Gadar entered into Modi’s body, minus the hand pump and Amisha Patel.
The 2 minutes 36 seconds trailer is nothing but propaganda, at its best.
It’s a hagiography of Modi that shamelessly aims at projecting him as a superhero just before the general elections in April 2019.
But, the only good thing after seeing the trailer is Vivek Oberoi got work after a stream of flops and a brief sabbatical from Hindi films. Surely Acche Din for him.
