I can't picture you surviving in Indian politics. Let me tell you the reasons: you have morals, too much integrity and you lack an ego.' Without a job and a marriage on the rocks, the mild-mannered Jay Banerjee has no choice but to come back from the US to Delhi. A chance meeting with a childhood friend, Govardhan Ray, aka Raja - A neta with a scandal too many - plunges him into the seamy, madcap world of Indian politics.

The fight for the Narayanpore seat - A nondescript district in West Bengal - begins and along with it, the process of discovering 'the real India'. Jay's challenge: to provide a 'clean campaign with integrity'.

Replete with colourful campaigns, media hullabaloo, cynical voters, goondas, chamchas and all the usual suspects, The Candidate is a breezy and humorous story of the great Indian election tamasha.
