Through its comical narrative, the film subtly comments on the workings of politicians at the grassroots level. It highlights the divide between communities in the North and South of the village and exposes the politicians’ strategies of resorting to appeasement, bribery, and freebies to secure votes from their respective communities. Amidst all this chaos, the protagonist, Martin Luther King, who is clueless about voting, surprisingly manages to capitalize on the situation by offering a substantial sum of money to politicians in exchange for his vote. This leads to him being showered with favors, including imported drinks, the finest food, luxurious furniture, and stylish clothes.

However, as Martin’s deceit is eventually discovered, he faces the wrath of the villagers and is ostracized. The voting official admonishes him for his ignorance and emphasizes the importance of every single vote. This realization prompts Martin Luther King to understand the significance of his vote, culminating in the film’s central theme, ‘Every vote counts.’
