Not a movie....really
25 January 2019 | by tan99See all my reviews

This is a documentary. A badly made one at that. Probay best described as a montage of the greatest hits of the anecdotes of Thackeray's life. Scenes flow randomly from one to the other in an attempt to cover as much ground in anecdotes as possible. Even fans of the man will find this painful to watch.
