At the heart of An Insignificant Man is the most polarising man in India today - Arvind Kejriwal. Filmed over the course of 2 years, this film is a portrait of power, corruption and a controversial man. The film gives an insider's view into Arvind Kejriwal's brand of politics which has been labelled selfish, dangerous, anarchic and yet revolutionary. Shaking the country's most powerful political establishments with basic public issues like water, electricity, and graft, Kejriwal has emerged as the leader of the newest political force in India - the Common Man's Party. With never-before-seen footage, the film offers a unique insight into a fledgeling political party's battle between survival and extinction in the largest democracy in the world. Capturing moments of triumph and despair, the film is a moving cinematic journey through the narrow lanes of Delhi's shanty towns to the closed corridors of political power. Written by Khushboo Ranka & Vinay Shukla

Did You Know?


The filmmakers had direct access to all the private meetings and most, if not all, areas where Arvind Kejriwal went, resulting in the use of much footage that was not even seen by Arvind Kejriwal's most devoted followers in India. He enjoys tremendous support in India, mainly from the youth, for his belief in getting to the core of a problem and solving it as soon as possible, which is basically unheard-of in the glacially-slow world of Indian governance.

User Reviews

An objective documentary that shows the growth of new politics in Indian democracy
19 October 2018 | by samyaksambuddhaSee all my reviews

This is not the traditional documentary with facts and figures but an objective presentation of the true set of events through which the nation went in the tight months of strife among the political parties. The Yogendra Yadav exit was among the major turn of events. Arvind's role is not good or bad but true. The unfateful demise of Santosh Koli was grievous. Certainly this is a must watch for every Indian for making sure of getting out of the regular caste and religion based politics. India needs to stand together to drive the nation into new set of political institutions that are powerful.
