The top court of the country has declined to block the release of the biopic of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The judicial intervention has been sought on the ground of the possible misuse of the film as a propaganda weapon by those close to and work for the ruling faction.

Rejecting the petition filed by a Congress worker, the court has asked how the court could block a film without knowing what is wrong with that film.

The petitioner’s representative has argued that the film has violated the Model Code of Conduct declared by the Election Commission of India.

Anyway, the court has advised the petition to watch the film at the earliest first, and inform it which part of the film he think has violated the Model Code of Conduct and why he think that part has violated the MCC.

The film is scheduled to be released on April 11. Many BJP leaders, including a BJP Chief Minister, have participated in the promotional activities of the film.

In the film, Vivek Oberoi appear as the central character (as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi). He has repeatedly assured that the film was a pure piece of art and was not a propaganda material.

It is an undeniable fact that many worked behind the film are adherent supporters of the ideology of the saffron faction.

From the thriller, it is clear that the film attempts to glorify the ideology of the rightists and the main leaders of the rights, including the PM.

What the film attempts to give is definitely not a good precedent. What do you think?
