Review ★★★★

Youngistaan was the first Indian political drama I saw and it was enjoyable. I’m not too familiar with democracies outside of the USA and even though this was purely fiction, it was a nice perspective of the values of morals in Indian politics, and what campaigning in villages looks like and means. These sound silly but were good perspective on what it takes to win in the worlds largest democracy.

The story itself was entertaining but this film likely wouldn’t be a party pleaser - and that’s okay! It follows a young guy enjoying his life in Japan when he finds his father, the previous prime minister (I think), passes away and the control delegates to the young guy, who has avoided the spotlight in India. It then follows his abolition of corrupt scandals and winning his own election.
