The story line evolves in the backdrop of upcoming general elections in India in 2024. The film seeks to reveal the underbelly of politics, where corrupt politicians are raising funds from outsiders not aligned with the agenda of growing India into a prosperous nation.

“Politicians will go to any extent to win the election – lie to people, create fear, provoke them on the basis of fake news – which you will all witness in Political War,” a press release from Modi said.

“Political War” gets into the history of how on India’s independence in 1947, each individual had the right to vote and select leaders who were expected to serve their best interests. With the passing of time, some politicians changed the meaning of politics. Present politics turned out to be a battle for the throne where politicians want power over people, the power to collect wealth while in power.

“Political War” is showcasing a story for the 2024 Indian election of how conspiracies are made in the country and how foreign support is taken to turn citizens against their own nation while putting the country at risk, the press release said.

Modi and his team’s objectives for making the film are to:   1) Motivate the Community to Vote; 2) Expose Corrupt Politicians; 3) Expose Corrupt Foreign Resources; 4) India believes There is Unity in Diversity; 5) The Universe is one family

Modi’s earlier films include The Elevator starring Golden Globe-nominated Eric Roberts, and Eugenia Kuzmina, which  debuted in theatres on streaming platforms recently, the press release said. Modi launched a streaming service—Indie Films World (IFW), that aims to get independent filmmakers.

Modi is also known for the series in Hindi called “Mission Kashi” released October 2022 on IFW. He has 3 more films in the pipeline to be released in the next 12 months, the press release said, including – “Torn” a psychological thriller, “The Kitchen Party,” a short, and “Arms Heist” a mini web series.

Modi is also attempting to create a film festival for independent filmmakers, Indie Film Award Festival, the press release said, through which he says, independent film makers can be helped to distribute their films (
