Nawazuddin Siddiqui makes it worth watching

Nawazuddin Siddiqui pulls of one of the best performances of his career. He's fabulous! His body language, composure, magnetism & mannerism is at a different level all together. We don't come across actors like him often. If nothing else, watch the movie just for him.

Overall, depending on your political inclination, the values you carry, the principles you have, you may hate or like the film, as it is based on a political personality and the choices he makes. Personally, I must admit that the 150 mins did alter my opinion about Balasaheb Thackerey. That by itself shows that the film & the performance of its casts is good enough to have an impact (good or bad) on your opinion about the protagonist.

However, the film is very slow & if you can't read Hindi you might find it difficult to keep up. Dialogues at times are great but most often very confusing.

Bottom line is, if you are looking for a typical bollywood entertainer, you might like to skip this one. Else it is a good watch!

Nawazuddin Siddiqui's acting rescues the poorly written dim political biopic.

Director: Abhijit Panse Producer and Writer: Sanjay Raut, MP (Rajya Sabha) Shiv Sena

Story: Thackrey revolves around the life of late Bal Keshav Thackrey, as he goes from being a cartoonist to founding a political party, Shivsena for the Maharashtrians and how he became the most influential person of Maharashtra.

Review: Thackrey movie shows the famous and not so popular life incidences of the Bala Saheb Thackrey, going through the crucial moments which made him, one of the most influential people ever born in the state of Maharashtra.

However, the movie fails at capturing the attention of the viewers and one will find it very hard to concentrate at the film throughout the 2 hours and 19 minutes. With a poorly written script, one finds it difficult to connect with the movies when movies go ahead showing the life of Bala Saheb Thackrey.

It is more like different new pieces reporting the incidence rather than being a movie.

If you are looking for a nicely written script with amazing shots, the movie is not for you.

One must only go if you would want to know about the life of Bala Saheb Thackrey.

Verdict: 2/5

Opportunity missed.. could have been better!!

Had high expectations from this film considering the charismatic persona of the protagonist . The narrative unfortunately is not gripping enough to hold the audience in rapt attention .

The film has its moments but seems disjointed, with punch lines that are laboriously inserted without having any impact on the narrative.

Navaz fits the bill perfectly and gets into the character with ease . But as they say no one can rise above the script . Could have been better .

5 out of 10 stars from me for this biographical docudrama.
