You wouldn't need a rose tinted glasses to see PM Modi for it has a tint of its own. The movie stars Vivek Oberoi in the lead and attempts to tell the tale of India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The movie released just in time to make it look like a celebration of the PM Modi's victory. The first half just concluded and here's how the movie has been so far. 
The movie tells the tale of India's Prime Minister aka BJP leader and his struggles. We meet junior Modi, the chaiwaala, and understand that he was a born leader who is empathetic and futuristic. 
We follow his journey from choosing a life of a brahmachari to playing a key catalyst in several historic events involving Indira Gandhi and setting up the base for BJP in Gujurat. The first half covers Modi's journey to becoming the Chief Minister of Gujarat and events thereafter. This includes the controversial Gujarat riots. 
I'm not going to comment on the justification behind the incidents or events of the first half. Instead, I'm going to talk about the making of this movie. Vivek Oberoi is a good actor. We've seen him pull off some good roles in the past. This could be counted as a decent role as well. But Modi has to be credited for it. While he embraces Modi patriotism, he doesn't adapt his characteristics. If he's playing someone in a biopic, he needs to remind us more of him. But Oberoi doesn't. Had that been in place, the movie could've reached a different scale. 
The script is weak. The story means intends on portraying that Modi was the catalyst in several crucial milestones of BJP, making the politician the ultimate hero of the world of politics. There is more justification needed to several incidents. The first half is hotchpotch and it's hard to ignore director OmungKumar constant attempt to make Modi, or in this case Oberoi a star. 
We'll have to wait and how the second half unfolds.

i've already canceled "the vivek", but to review only part 1 of a film...& post said partial-review publicly? it's a half-assed world, tailored for the sub-standard.

Chit PM ka propaganda. Modi won!! No wonder gore ruled over India for so many years. Our country has no sense in choosing leaders. Media's divisive policies won. There will be riots and war as a result. But guess what why would hindu care, only minoroties will be killed

Paresh Rawal will always be the better choice for this role, Vivek is a good actor for Paresh is tailor made for this one, sorry not sorry

Vivek has not done justice in potraying Mr.modi and his mannerism but has certainly created controversy in the name of cinema to get more eyeballs. Had he put in more effort in potraying Mr.modi to perfection it would have been appreciated better.
