Storyline

In 2006, George Bush, President of The United States, visited India. In addition to the many diplomatic and political things on the agenda was a rather unique event - a meeting with one of the young faces responsible for shaping "The New India". This is a fact. The rest is fiction. The US Consulate hires a dysfunctional PR agency that "knows America" to find 1 young Indian to be the face of the New India before The American President. The agency brings in 6 Young Indians who have been selected by NDTV as the "top Indian achievers under 30". The winner is to be selected in a day through a round of bizarre tests that get progressively tougher in a room in the US Consulate. The President will shake their hand among a long line of waiting Indian luminaries, the next day. Each is desperate to win and will resort to any means to do so. Written by Uncle Sam

Good story but not professional
18 June 2013 | by swanbauproSee all my reviews

The best thing about "The President is Coming" is that its story is original. In this regard, it has to be commended. Unfortunately, being a low-budget film, the overall product is not of a high quality. The dialogues and acting are amateurish. The English spoken by the Indian actors is not properly enunciated and the accent is thick most of the time. It would have been better if the dialogues had been in Hindi.

I would say that it is worth a watch but don't expect a high-quality work. The jokes may make you chuckle at regular intervals but be prepared for the uneven quality of the acting. The ending is special and that leaves a somewhat sweet after-taste in your mouth.

My verdict: good try; do better next time.
