Come watch the movie with the directors! More about the movie - The Arab Spring, the Occupy Movement and the Anti-Austerity rallies in Europe, had an echo in the shape of the anticorruption movement in India. Only that in India, the protestors formed a political party and decided to run for office. New Delhi became a focal point of public anger against the status-quo. Soon enough, one seemingly insignificant figure was at the centre of it all — Arvind Kejriwal, a polarising leader of the people’s movement that transformed into the nation’s newest political force — The Common Man’s Party (AAP). Distilled from 450 hours of deep access footage, it is a 100 minutes long procedural woven through campaign strategies, heated arguments and inside jokes, laying bare the party’s tactics, vulnerabilities and shortcomings. The film witnesses the emergence of conflict within the party, while it endures external threats of distrust, smear campaigns and violence.
