The film talk about a village called Bhaglipur in Madhya Pradesh. This is where one Industrialist from the same village is trying to generate employment by starting a Milk Factory for them. To encash on the industrialist’s goodwill with locals the sitting MLA of the district befriends him. What emerges in the end is the betrayal towards the common man. Will the common man be able to change his fate by voting for the right person? Or will it be another incident of exploitation of the weak?
Kamal Kushwaha (Chaitanya Naidu) is a well-settled Businessman but his is the classic story of rags to riches. Hailing from a small town Bhaglipur in Madhya Pradesh, he has his business in and around the area. His idea is to generate employment and money for his fellow villagers. In his quest he comes close to a farmer Shankar (Onkar Das Manikpuri) developing an emotional bond. The sitting MLA of the district Pratap Singh (Mukesh Tiwari) needs money for his election campaign and targets KK industries to generate it. The secretary Sukhiram (Pankaj Triparthi) approaches KK Group of industries but is turned away. This starts a series of vendetta and sinister plotting.
The director of the film Shiv Dube said, “My interest in shooting this film was to capture the real miseries and need of common man. Through my movie I want to change people’s viewpoint about politics because today the moment we say politics first thing that comes to mind are negative thoughts – scams, scams and lot more scams… The biggest thought while making this film was ‘if a common man decides to change the fate of his country he can do that by electing the right candidate’. The film depicts a deadly conflict between a political leader, an industrialist and a common man, creating a thrilling drama.”
Film MLA was shot in Panchgani, Wai and Mumbai.
It will be screened at the prestigious New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) on 24th May and releasing all over the world on 25th May.
