The Accidental Prime Minister and Uri The Surgical Strike movie review release highlights: Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri has opened to mixed reviews from the critics and the audience. But The Accidental Prime Minister starring Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna has been panned by the movie critics.
"Some people are now indulging in political dramas. A movie titled an Accidental Prime Minister has been made keeping the elections in mind. I do not get the meaning of it as everybody is an accidental Prime Minister. In the name of this movie attempts are being made to distort facts. It is a crime," said Mamata Banerjee.
While the box office performance of The Accidental Prime Minister might get affected by Vicky Kaushal's Uri, trade analyst Girish Johar believes Petta and Viswasam will not affect the film in the Hindi speaking belt.
