This Friday released Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial ‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’ deals with the social issue of open defecation and women safety.

The film stars National Award-winning actress Anjali Patil, Om Kanojiya and Niteesh Wadhwa. It highlights the divine relationship between a mother and a son.

‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’ is based on a single mother, whose eight-year-old son wants to make a toilet in the slum near his house for her because he is really concerned about his mother’s safety when she goes out to defecate in the middle of the night, every night like lakhs of women does in India. But one night, while returning home, worst happens and she gets raped.

He found a solution to this problem is that he writes a letter to the Prime Minister of India and comes to Delhi with his two friends to deliver him the letter.

A film was made on the same topic last year titled ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ but Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra brings a similar topic with a very unique story. ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ Akshay Kumar was fighting for his wife and in ‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’, little Kanhu is fighting for his mother, which is heartwarming.

The film has not been politicized by the director, which is usually done in such type of social issue based film. The kids in the film have stolen the show by their performance and music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy perfectly suits the situation.

It was screened at the Rome Film Festival representing not just India but Asia.

The project is financed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Arpit Vyas, Saloni Vyas, P.S. Bharathi, Rajiv Tandon, Dhaval Jayantilal Gada, and Aksshay Jayantilal Gada.
