Ratings:3.5/5 Review By:Renuka Site:Time Of India

Why was an Indian so devoted to the Queen of England, who ruled his country? (He even happily kisses her feet). Was he naive or just an opportunist? What was he like as a person? The narrative reduces Abdul to being a mere spectator and that’s its biggest flaw. Also, the film falters as it abruptly changes gear and transforms into a tedious tragedy from a cross-cultural comedy.Despite an uneven narrative and historical inaccuracies, Victoria and Abdul is a delightful film that deserves to be watched for Judi Dench.

There’s an odd sense of misguided chronicling in the film, which is strange considering it’s directed by Stephen Frears who has made rather lovely films like High Fidelity. The lack of irony, or satirical bite from his earlier film The Queen ultimately hurts Victoria and Abdul, more a missed opportunity than a piece of entertainment.

What’s Good: Presence of Judi Dench, the tall doe-eyed Ali Fazal & some strikingly shot sequences. What’s Bad: Fact of converting a fascinating tale into a crawling big yawn. Loo Break: As many times as Ali Fazal uses the term ‘Her Majesty’ Watch or Not?: Only for sincere performances by Judi Dench & Ali Fazal (Nothing else!)

But don’t let that fool you. Don’t be taken in by the delightful sight of Queen Victoria speaking in broken Hindi, and don’t fall for a dreamy-eyed Ali Fazal reciting the decadent history of the Taj Mahal. Victoria & Abdul is a shameful attempt to normalise evil. Everyone involved could, and should, have done better.

Shrabani Basu, on whose book this film is based, rightly underlines that the story of the friendship between Queen Victoria and her Indian servant Abdul Karim, “sounds like a fantasy, but isn’t”. Unfortunately, as told by this film, through an actor whose Abdul is as two-dimensional as a cardboard, with as little insight into the man transported into an alien world, Victoria and Abdul plays out exactly like a fantasy.

Victoria & Abdul Story: 

In her latter years, Victoria, the Queen of England and Empress of India (Judi Dench), found solace in the company of an Indian clerk Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), who went on to become her Urdu teacher, spiritual adviser and closest confidant. Based on Shrabani Basu’s book on this extraordinary true story, the film takes a bittersweet look at this little-known friendship that caused a furore within the royal household.
