Presidential candidate Barack Obama can do anything, or so the citizens of Tamil Nadu, a southern state in India, believe in this comedic film that has various sub-plots including romance, grassroots politics, panchayat elections and others. In Om Obama, the news about Obama's arrival spreads like fire and the entire village awaits the arrival of Barack Obama. Hearing this, the American journalist and her crew are pole axed by the 'breaking news.' The villagers hold high hopes that Obama would help in the economic transformation of the village. Every sub-plot in the film has an issue, and the only solution to every issue is Obama's arrival. Regardless of political stance, this film is entertaining, thought provoking and definitely would spark dialogue and demonstrate in a fun way the interrelatedness of the world.
