In these uncertain times, comes a heartfelt story of boundless courage, determination, and inspiration...
Filmed in India over six years and narrated by Academy Award winning actor, Helen Mirren, YES MADAM, SIR is a ‘David and Goliath’ epic story profiling Asia Nobel Prize winner, Kiran Bedi - India’s first woman police officer.
YES MADAM, SIR carries the audience through an emotional, tumultuous, frustrating and often hilarious journey of a person who defies all odds, makes history, ruffles feathers, and who triumphs to ultimately affect change from within a centuries-old world.
A modern day Gandhi, Bedi is an intriguing paradox: deified by million for her commitment to social justice and her public stance against corruption; vilified by the establishment as a publicity-seeking megalomaniac. The true drama lies not in Bedi’s extraordinary audacity, but in the inherent contradictions in her character. In Bedi’s eyes, she fights the fight of the underdog on an ultimately sinking ship.


Packed with heart, YES MADAM, SIR is a roller coaster ride of the triumph and frustration, fame and infamy, comedy and tragedy, passion and pain of a sole leader, and a searing insight into a lawmaker who becomes a law unto herself.
