We have followed the movement since its inception and have seen it unfold on the ground as well as in the media. The evident inconsistencies in the reporting of news channels and newspapers compelled us to research further and engage with members of the party. We established contact with the party and its members, and have closely followed their journey. Our access within the party gave us an insight into the mechanisms of politics through some very interesting protagonists. It also showed us the vulnerabilities of such an enterprise. Today the Aam Aadmi Party is the center of much debate. We are neither looking to make heroes out of them as protestors nor wanting to vilify them as politicians. While the film will appeal to an international audience due to its content, it is aimed at being highly relevant to Indian citizens, too.
