Madam Chief Minister is available to stream on Netflix. Madam Chief Minister is a Hindi-language political drama film directed by Subhash Kapoor that will be released in 2021. Richa Chadda plays the lead in the film. Chadda made the formal announcement for the film on February 12, 2020. The film was shot in Lucknow in a 40-day schedule from start to finish in November and December 2019. In India, the film was released in theatres on January 22, 2021.
This film is a fictional portrayal of the ups and downs in the life of a powerful Dalit politician who goes on to become India’s most populous and politically heated state Uttar Pradesh’s first female chief minister. Subhash Kapoor, the writer-director, shows us how a Dalit groom’s procession ends in a bloody gunfight just because it annoys a Thakur family in a terrifying opening scene. Roop Ram, a poor Dalit man, is slain in the ensuing chaos, just minutes before his wife gives birth to another girl child. The year is 1982, and the state of Uttar Pradesh is rife with gender and caste prejudice, as well as infanticide.
‘UP mein jo metro banata hai woh haarta hai aur jo mandir banaata hai wohi jeetata hai,’ says Kapoor, occasionally throwing in lines like, ‘UP mein jo metro banata hai woh haarta hai aur jo mandir banaata hai wohi jeetata hai.’ There are no extraneous item numbers or melodies to slow down the pace, which is a relief. The film’s non-glossy, unglamorous canvas complements the film’s earthy tone.
