The trailer has also been receiving backlash with people questioning the timing of its release stating that parties are using it as a tool during 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In response to the concerns, actor Anupam Kher said to PTI, "There will be different kind of interpretations and one can have their own interpretation. People release patriotic films during Independence Day or Republic Day. This is a political film and we would like to release it in the election time. What is the problem in that?"

This 2019 release is based on the book written by Sanjaya Baru. The movie outlines the life of politician-economist Dr Manmohan Singh who served as India’s Prime Minister from 2004-2014. The film also delves deeper in the inner politics of the congress party. Starring Anupam Kher in the lead role, the film has been garnering a lot of attention owing to the striking resemblance of its characters with the real life counterparts.
