In 1975, Narendra Damodardas Modi was 25 years old. According to the film PM Narendra Modi, he had already made an impact seismic enough to make the power centres shiver. The on-screen Indira Gandhi is so threatened by the meteoric rise of this young leader that she feels the need for desperate measures. ‘Throw him in prison,’ she instructs, ‘and declare an Emergency.’
Perhaps this is the most appropriate biopic for an India where facts don’t matter. Written by Sandip Ssingh and directed by Omung Kumar B, PM Narendra Modi isn’t mere tribute but actual deification. It plays out less like a feature and more like old mythological films viewers used to watch after taking their shoes off. I’m surprised Ssingh and Kumar B didn’t call their film Jai Santoshi Modi. This film actually states that the only reason Narendra Modi does not walk on water is because he chose otherwise.
PM Narendra Modi is a 2019 Hindi-language biographical drama film directed by Omung Kumar, and written by Anirudh Chawla and Vivek Oberoi. The film is jointly produced by Suresh Oberoi, Sandip Singh, Anand Pandit, Acharya Manish under the banner of Legend Studios. The film's plot is loosely based on the life of Narendra Modi, the 14th Prime Minister of India.

The credits in the movie for lyrics were given to Javed Akhtar, Sameer, Abhendra Upadhyay, Irshad Kamil, Parry G. and Lavraj, and released by T-Series. Javed Akhtar later confirmed that he has not written any songs in the film and is shocked along with Sameer to see their names in the credits. The film was theatrically released in India on 24 May 2019. The film was universally panned by critics, and Oberoi's performance was criticized. It has grossed over ?28.51 crore in India.
Narendra Modi begins his career as a poor tea seller. He leaves his home at a young age, denying his marriage with Jashodaben Modi, to become a Sanyasi in the Himalayas. After his journey, he returns to Gujarat, becomes a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh member and gets assigned to the Bharatiya Janata Party in 1980, after fighting back the State of Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi in 1975. He also leads the Ekta Yatra to unite all Indians. He heads along the Indian Army and some other members, fighting against the terrorists to the Lal Chowk and plants the national flag of India.
He struggles and ground works in many areas of Gujarat to help people and gain support. Due to the teamwork of the people and the BJP members, the Party wins the Gujarat CM elections and Keshubhai Patel becomes the Chief Minister of Gujarat. Soon, he feels insecure seeing Modi's rise to fame and popularity. He forces the BJP founders- Atal Bihari Vajpayee, L. K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi to transfer Modi to some other place. In grief, Modi submits his resignation which is eventually declined as he had done a lot of work for the party. He was transferred to New Delhi for groundwork. He returned to Gujarat from Delhi in 2001, just a month before the events of the 2001 Gujarat earthquake. He replaced Keshubhai Patel from his position and was also chosen as the CM Candidate for the upcoming election, and he became the Chief Minister.
