A SIGNIFICANT FILM
After the anti-corruption protests, Arvind Kejriwal along with his team members forms a new political party to fight the Delhi elections.
The mark of a good documentary is that you forget that the events unfolding on the screen are not fiction. An Insignificant Man achieves that and even surpasses it. Arvind Kejriwal becomes a character in a movie on his own life as David-like, he takes on the political champions during his debut in the Delhi legislative assembly elections. Filmmakers Khushboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla place themselves square in the midst of the chaos in the capital and offer a ringside view to the viewers of how a political party is formed and how elections are fought. The filmmakers have made best use of the access offered to them and chosen some spectacular scenes that range from absurd, to funny to plain hilarious. The real triumph of the movie is the sharp objectivity it maintains throughout its 96 minutes of run-time. While the filmmakers capture Kejriwal at his most vulnerable movements; be it the suspicious, accidental death of one of his party workers or the light movements they share as they dub for their election advertisement, never for a moment it feels that they are deifying him. In fact, there are times when the camera is turned on Kejriwal as his party members question him about his choice of candidates.
Editing by Abhinav Tyagi and Manan Bhatt is clearly the strongest part of the entire documentary. The way they have maintained a coherent narrative makes you feel as if you're watching a taut thriller; they keep you glued till the very last moment. Music by Ola Flottum is subtle, non-intrusive yet successfully elevates each sequence.
This small indie film may be the most significant one you may want to catch this weekend.
