In the backdrop of 2014 elections, as election result were being announced, news channels had announced their own demise, while general opinion of public regarding Indian News channels had become that “Some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”
Meanwhile India was rejoicing the moment, there were some low moments within India’s first family, our eavesdropper reporter could get some:
Madam: The Modi won. All of Media’s prosecutions, everything we fought for…undone. Whatever chance they gave us of fixing this country into, dies with Media’s reputation. We bet it all on them. The Modi took the best of us and tore us down. People will lose hope.
Dark Knight: They won’t. They must never know what we did.
Madam: Dedicated Modi bashing, primetime NDTV material…you can’t sweep that up.
Dark Knight: But the Media cannot lose. Country needs its true hero.
Madam: [understanding immediately] No!
Dark Knight: “You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the corrupt.” I can do those things, because I’m not a hero, not like MSM. I made up that news, that’s what I can be.
Madam: No, you can’t! You’re not!
Dark Knight: I’m whatever Congress needs me to be. Call it in.
[A scene of Madam speaking at Media’s funeral, saying they were Heroes, Not the heroes we deserved but heroes we needed] Madam: They’ll hunt you.
Dark Knight: You’ll hunt me. You’ll condemn me, set the dogs on me. [In the voiceover, Madam destroys the Congress’ Palm-Signal, PMO burns Swamy’s 2G letters, and Diggy destroys himself] Because that’s what needs to happen. Because sometimes… the #paidnews isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded. [runs] Madam’s Son: MMSji? MMSji! Why is he running, Mommy?
Madam: Because we have to chase him.
Madam’s Son: He didn’t do anything wrong.
Madam: Because he’s the hero Congress deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we’ll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.
The situation was not Theek hai!!
