Nawazuddin Siddiqui's acting rescues the poorly written dim political biopic.
27 January 2019 | by manthanj-92427See all my reviews

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
