MUMBAI: Factual entertainment channel National Geographic has revealed that its upcoming documentary on the untold story of India’s biggest democratic exercise titled, ‘The Great Indian Election’ shot across 37 locations will premiere on 15th August. The documentary will be available on Hotstar as well.

The exclusive Independence Day film will also bring to the forefront rarely told human stories of the people behind this mammoth event. The film will bring to life a festive celebration of democracy on a day that is all about India.

The documentary will uncover the entire planning process of this exercise of epic proportions involving 11 million poll officials, over 900 million electorate and 8000 candidates across one million polling stations. Starting right from the announcement of election phases to India’s 15th Prime Minister’s swearing-in ceremony, the epic 6 months, multi-crew production is shot across the length and breadth of the country.

The documentary showcases a holistic view of the Elections process, right from the intricate planning process to the people behind this exercise. The film features a diverse set of people involved, from top-ranking officers at the Election Commission, booth level officers (BLOs), topmost political leaders to 100-year old voters.

The brand in the form of interviews and through unprecedented access to lesser-known areas showcases the challenges and complexities faced by election commission personnel in managing elections in some power constituencies. Some of the names featured include 23rd Chief Election Commissioner of India – Sunil Arora, District Election Officer – Varanasi, Surendra Singh (I.A.S.), first female collector of Salem district – Rohini R Bhajibhakare, amongst others.

The cameras of National Geographic have also followed some high profile leaders such as Narendra Modi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Sachin Pilot, Rahul Gandhi, and Nitin Gadkari. Standing tall to its commitment of scratching beneath the surface to bring out the unheard and unseen, the brand will give viewers an outlook in the campaigning of these influential leaders.

From the highest echelons of the Election Commission of India to the booth level officers (BLOs), from the topmost political leaders to ground level party workers, from first-time voters to 100-year-old voters, there is absolutely nothing that National Geographic’s cameras have not covered to bring the story of the world’s largest elections that has the entire world enthralled.
