The Accidental Prime Minister All Critic Reviews & Ratings

The edit is a tad bit sketchy. We wish the writing had more depth with more focus on defining the individual characters.

  • News 18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-1.5/5
The film is a hatchet job that looks like a hatchet job. It’s all so incompetently staged there were times I felt I was watching an MTV spoof.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-1.5/5
Devoid of cinematic finesse and totally clueless about how to go about the onerous job, it hits the skids at the very outset and never recovers.

The Accidental Prime Minister is narratively incoherent, technically sloppy and flat-out tedious.

With all its hamhanded recreations and incessant news-channel roundups, this resembles an episode of Savdhaan India.

THE ACCIDENTAL PRIME MINISTER rests on a great premise but the faulty and flawed screenplay and direction ruin the show.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-1/5
Neither the screenplay nor Kher’s performance is sophisticated enough to give a measure of Singh’s personality.

There doesn’t seem to have been a script in place, just scenes meant to damn the PM and studded with some unintentionally hilarious passages.

  • DNA | Review By - Meena Iyer | Rating-3/5
If you're into current affairs this one will pique your interest. Be warned: this is not 'entertaining' by any stretch of the imagination.

As political biopics go, this one straddles somewhere between deliberate hagiography and pointed propaganda.

  • First Post | Review By - Udita Jhunjhunwala | Rating-2/5
The fumbles in The Accidental Prime Minister lie in the screenplay and the tonally confused direction. At times, it is comic, at times tense, mostly jumbled, hurried and without layers.

  • Filmfare | Review By - Devesh Sharma | Rating-3/5
It's strange though that his character hardly ages from 1991 to 2014. In tact, he was looking in better shape during the end of the film than in the beginning!
