House of Cards – India : a comparative Study

4 Apr

Main Players (based only on first season):

Modi : Francis Underwood – could be the only strong contender as everyone else can be just manipulated/strong-armed away (“Disorganized religion”)

Rahul Gandhi : Peter Russo (sans divorce, kids) – looks ok on paper but is a puppet

Sonia Gandhi : perhaps once Claire Underwood but now more shades of Cersei Lannister (from GoT)

Zoe Barnes : Tarun Tejpal 

Aam Admi Party: clueless cabinet

I am not so clear on the rest as I really don’t know who pulls strings in what. But I can imagine that with elections around the corner, we can give House of Cards a run for its money.
