Is mass apeal taking over expert opinion in our country.

Experts for 3 years were cautioning Government on various issues. But Modi wave literaly was shuning all critics. But surprisingly a movie by name "Mersel" has put BJP in fix. Though the political and social claims of the movie are false to some extent BJP is unable to counter the narrative. A mass is counterting another mass appeal. Even prominent News channels have suggested Mersel vs Modi hastag. Does all these mean even in 21st century it is popularity of masses which determines politics and not fundamentals. Movie mersel became what several economists could not achieve. It emerged the strongest ( though false to some extent) critic to Government. Does Mass politics always wins over common sense?
