PLOT: The right of a woman to live with dignity has always been at crossroads with society’s norms. Especially in the hinterlands of UP, where the birth of a girl child is still a stigma, a woman’s dignity lies simply in survival; survival by subjugating to men and society, in that order.

MOVIE REVIEW: Madam Chief Minister looked promising from the trailer but the film does not meet the viewer’s expectation. The makers missed the opportunity to deliver a gripping political saga. Subhash Kapoor’s direction is ordinary.
Richa Chadha fully justified her role but her impressive performance is let down by the mediocre script. Saurabh Shukla is a delight to watch. Manav Kaul, Akshay Oberoi, Subhrajyoti Barat, and Nikhil Vijay were average in the supporting roles.
The movie lacks impactful dialogues and a compelling plot. The first half of the film is quick and entertaining. In the second half, the plot switches from the struggle of Dalit CM to an unnecessary love story. The climax is way too hurried.
