PM Narendra Modi hit the screens on May 24.
Helmed by national award winning director Omung Kumar, PM Narendra Modi has received a barrage of criticism from the critics. The film has been called a farcical hagiography. Besides, the film has been in controversy ever since its release was announced and was postponed twice due to elections. Its initial date of release was April 12 - a day after Phase 1 polling of the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Later, the makers of the movie rescheduled its release date to April 5. Consequently, this led to a lot of protests, mainly by the Opposition parties as they believed the release of the film around the polling period could sway voters.
Eventually, on May 2, film producer Sandip Ssingh announced the final release date of PM Narendra Modi, saying, "We come again fighting all the roadblocks & hurdles coming in our way! #PMNarendraModi now in cinemas from 24th May. "
The film features Vivek Oberoi as PM Modi, Manoj Joshi as Amit Shah, Rajendra Gupta as Modi's father, Zarina Wahab as Modi's mother and Barkha Bisht Sengupta as Modi's wife. PM Narendra Modi traces the journey of PM Modi from childhood to becoming the Prime Minister of India.
