The Accidental Prime Minister quick movie review: Akshaye Khanna keeps you hooked in the first half with a sparkling performance

Other releases like Viswasam and Petta are not going to affect this movie but Vicky Kaushal's Uri which is also becoming popular by its thrilling trailer can affect the box office collection of the movie.

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee questioned the timing of the release of the film which is based on a book by Sanjaya Baru, hinting at the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Helmed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, The Accidental Prime Minister is bankrolled by Sunil Bohra and Dhaval Gada under the banners of Rudra Productions (UK), Bohra Bros. and Pen India Limited.

The Accidental Prime Minister has been in the news since a while now due to the reported controversial content.

However, there are no A-listers in The Accidental Prime Minister.

"The film deliberately demeaned the image of Manmohan Singh, the first Sikh Prime Minister of India, who is a world-renowned economist".

Apart from Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna, the cast of The Accidental Prime Minister also includes Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi, Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi and Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi.

While the Pongal/Sankranti holidays as well as the days leading to Republic Day are expected to bring in the moolah for The Accidental Prime Minister, trade analysts believe that the movie will be able to collect in the range of Rs 3 crore on its opening day.

The film is scheduled for release on January 11.

A Bihar court on Tuesday ordered a first information report to be filed against actors associated with the soon-to-be-released film The Accidental Prime Minister, PTI reported. We are very proud of the product. Praising his acting skills, Anupam's mother also said she could not believe it's her son and exclaimed, "What do you eat, I don't understand!"
