The most awaited non-fiction political thriller An Insignificant Man is all set to hit the screens on November 17.
The highly intriguing trailer has left the audience so excited that the preview screenings of the film are already housefull!
The increasing anticipation is creating a demand for more shows across the nation.
The film, which had been facing censor troubles, goes behind the scenes to document Delhi CM’s Arvind Kejriwal and his insurgent party’s rise to power.
The three minute sneak peek promises a thrilling look at the gritty realities of a new political party.
Directors Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla recorded 400 hours of footage over the course of a year, capturing the clashes between idealism and politics during AAP’s 2013 election campaign.
When asked Khusbhoo about it, she said,
“We weren’t ready for this kind of an immediate houseful response. The fact that Arvind’s personal popularity is currently low has been good for us because there is no emotional euphoria around him anymore which usually makes people argue in shrill and polarised ways,” Khushboo said.
The director also believes the current scenario in the nation gives the audience an opportunity to reflect on the idea and not just one man or one party.
“The current atmosphere gives the audiences the opportunity to reflect on the idea, and not just this one man or a party. When our film was screened at MAMI last year, the audience consisted of people who loved him and others who hated him,
After the screening, both sides came to us and spoke at length about what the film meant to them. So it’s exciting for us to know that the film is working across different kinds of people and that people are really waiting for the film,” the director added.
Interestingly, both good and bad perceptions of the AAP are highlighted by the trailer.
An Insignificant Man, directed by Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla is slated to release on November 17.
