Don’t be fooled by the primarily waist-high cast. This film opens with women from a Mumbai basti making bawdy jokes about their bedrooms, cuts to a man getting children to sell hashish, and then gives us a glimpse of that item song about a woman who repeatedly needs to be reminded her name. Sex, drugs and Katrina Kaif. Right from the start, Mehra makes it clear this isn’t for kids.Mere Pyare Prime Minister Movie Download.
Instead, the film takes literal potshots at the government for not building enough public toilets. It’s about a spunky child, Kannu (a believably naive Om Kanojiya), who routinely defecates outdoors and makes a game of it with his friends. No poverty porn, merely dirty pleasures. When everything is filthy, nothing feels filthy.
Kannu’s mother, played by the impressively authentic Anjali Patil, is brutally assaulted during her ablutions — something the film admirably refuses to victimise. Her son’s reaction is to try and build a bathroom for his mother, a quest that takes him to 7 Course Road, letter in hand.
Mere Pyare Prime Minister is an earnest fairy-tale, modest but far from memorable. The kids are fine and some scenes charm, but the grown-ups get the best bits. My highlight is the couple living next door to Kannu, played by Nachiket Purnapatre and Rasika Agashe. Wife and husband trade slaps across the face — as greeting, and as come-on — are visibly enamoured by each other, and require but the mildest suggestion to head back to bed, throwing away freshly bought movie tickets. Good move. Mehra the storyteller gets his groove back by going basic, telling us a movie is just a movie. It’s fine to choose life instead..
