Victoria and Abdul


Upon ascending the throne at the age of 18 years, Victoria became Queen of great Britain, Ireland, and later Empress of India. Among the countless subjects of the crown was handsome Abdul Karim. Appearing seemingly out of nowhere, he turned into a very influential man at court.

A great film that is deep-rooted in head and touched the hidden strings of the soul. Frankly, I this film was adjusted. And looked looking at all time.

How unusual format, yeah and generally the plot of the film! Yeah and can call a story-real events of real people?

As far as myself the film is groomed, polished, and noble fact. I assure you, in such a long time not encountered. And despite probably even stiffness of the film as he is filled with emotions and feelings, thoughts, awareness.

Did I the beginning of the movie that by the end of it will get your favorite list? Did I do that I dug in deep after watching for CSOs to evaluate and what kind of people surround me? And my friends and what principles do they are somewhat sincere?

And you too thoughtful.

The film, which is just about life in the credits you leave to sit idol in a meditative state. Guarantee. Launch in itself test their values of life, honor, life events.

Easy to be a Queen? Watch the movie.

Very interesting how the film will react to men, but ladies definitely not be without a huge dose of emotions.

Great movie.

The story is based on real events of the late XIX century talks about the unusual friendship of Victoria and an Indian Muslim Abdul Karim, also known as Munshi (teacher), who managed to conquer the heart of the Queen. A film about the servant who changed the life of Her Majesty: we watching how dealing with Abdullah transforms the young Victoria from the dying and hopeless in the former strong woman once again begins to enjoy life.

"No one knows what it's like to be Queen. I hate the millions of people around the world. From my nine children and all empty jealous and hate each other. Take a look at me: fat, useless, stupid. In what's the point, Abdul, the meaning of all this?".

Costumes, picturesque scenery, pleasant background music, realistic atmosphere — shot very beautifully. The plot is calm and a bit monotone, but not boring. All material is supplied delicately, there is a touch of irony, the era passed very successfully and the friendship feels believable and touching. Well and of course the excellent acting Duo Judi Dench and Ali Fazal. They — the highlight, core and decoration of this picture.

The film is not is strictly historical, it is pointless to compare the artistic Karim with its prototype. In reality Abdul was not so beautiful, open and charming as it showed here. But and "Perfume" in opposed to the cinematic version, in the book is something akin to disgust and desires to take a refreshing shower. I like that the filmmakers have toned down the images — let the picture leave a ‘light’ experience.

Overall, a wonderful author (this is a subtle hint that not everyone will like) work.

Satiated all in his long life of Queen Victoria on the twilight of his life disappointed in a stiff fake subjects, suddenly he becomes interested in a simple Indian guy Abdul, she is with his interviews, consults and boundless trust him.

A Muslim becomes the right hand of Queen despite the murmur of the English court and all sorts of obstacles and the machinations of the heirs to the English throne. Already have long withered, waiting for death, tired of life the woman sees someone like the son in fair simple-minded Abdul.

The truth is not know that such a fact when it was the English Royal court, if true story, really, really interesting and unique in its kind. But I don't really liked the flow of the plot, the film how not to pull on praised as if there critics — recently not has exhibited his 10 and 9. Well, their personal vision for me this in the picture is not enough depth, so if it's a historical drama, but to present a serious movie, the picture is not hold up, it sometimes too easy, even comic. Only the genre of Comedy in the film is not declared as therefore I waited his other, generally dislike comedies, especially mixed with historical stories still real.

As for the cast, then Judi Dench I admire not will have seen a few dramas, the actress clearly chosen for this is a genre that very useful it is extremely old age. It is seen that Judy's favorite actress, film Director Stephen Frears, it removed in all the pictures, scripts are written apparently, specifically for her image. According to all Queen Victoria not the actress last role, one can only wonder its demand restlessness. Other aging actors are not so lucky, we have to see them in "trash", low rating movies, well that fate had not all the same favors.

Handsome Ali Fazal itself emphasizes the old age and the ugliness of Victoria, shines its bright beauty on the screen causes a storm of emotions (more positive) especially in comic moments. In General, a pair of these two actors turned out colorful, it's no doubt attracted to the film. I must say, the actors are all well played, smoothly, on the background of two center characters look harmoniously. The picture in that beautiful and bright, there are lots of interesting shots. So that bad for fans of AMD is a very suitable for more. Rating of 6 10 deserves.

But for me and I think very high marks in the whole film of empty, jump in it or mind the heart is not particularly for that. In the drama is important is the drama, the whipping up of this drama... where?? Only liked the ending, it truly tragic — deep hero Abdul once in it is revealed, you can see its true feelings, his soul. But sometimes it seemed not out of greed if sitting next to Victoria is a stubborn Indian?

Certainly the film picked up Oscars, it in the categories -that is clearly stated. For haven't news that truly great movie is not estimated fully the American Academy, especially after the painting "Moonlight" about Negra — homosexual, I already do nothing surprised.
