    • Inspired by Nobel laureate Elias Canetti's book, 'Crowds and Power', the documentary captures the excitement, the madness and the noise behind the high- octane poll battle in the holy city of Banaras, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s parliamentary constituency. And in the process, for the first time lays bare the equation and politics of democracy called India.
