Don't expect to learn anything from the film but surely hope for a fun time!
25 January 2019 | by Tejas_Vinda_AITSSee all my reviews

A stellar performance by the stalwart Nawazuddin Siddiqui, some very good crowd-pleasing dialogues & a fascinating emotion of knowing more about the man - Balasaheb Thackeray.

Because of its excessive political infusion, the pace gets down at places, lack of masala dialogues, it's not entirely for its target audience.

Watch it for the entertainment! The informative aspect of the film somewhere gets overshadowed because of its treatment.

Sanjay Raut's story is definitely engaging and provides ample entertainment to audience.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is getting into the zone of being other people with ease. After Manto, he has hit another home run with Thackeray as far as his performance is concerned.

Amrita Rao as Meena Tai is impressive. She has a limited scope but surely makes you remember her character.

Thackeray is an interesting journey of a person larger than life portrayed in a very entertaining way. Nawazuddin Siddiqui's superlative performance will be remembered as one of his best.
