Kaun Banega PM? Kaun Banega PM?

The makers of Yeh Hai Bakrapur, along with developer Indiafarms released Kaun Banega PM, a role playing game that is based on the film, which is a social satire set against the backdrop of rural India. The film deals with some interesting predictions related to Elections 2014. In this game, the player has to help Shahrukh, the goat, decide who will win the Bakrapur elections. The player has to select the party that they want to vote for, along with the right candidate and symbol. While the selection gives the player a power boost and some extra points, the player has to be alert, since selecting the wrong symbols and candidates (which belong to some other party) will give the player negative points. Plus, your vote will end up going their side instead. So, the player has to help their favourite party win over the others. If the player wants to keep a track of the leading party in a particular state or nation-wide, they can do so on the leaderboard. So far, several players have cast their votes and the trends show BJP’s Narendra Modi leading, followed by INC’s Rahul Gandhi and AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal. The game is available on all android 2.2 and above devices. The recent bug fixes and interface changes have improved the game and made it more smooth. It definitely makes for an interesting idea and keeps you hooked, especially with the election fervour in the air. The game can be downloaded from the Google play store for free.
