Critic Reviews for Thackeray

  • Sadly there is very little focus on his children or even his impact as an artist. The timeline of Thackeray is conveniently engineered to delete the unflattering, the sensitive and the problematic mandate.

  • Thackeray is a warts-and-none propaganda film about a man who peddled hate and keenly fostered a sense of otherness.

  • Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays Thackeray and one can very well say it's the role of his life till date.

  • This is either an oblivious or blatantly self-aware film, a work not of propaganda as much as it is a work of pride, celebrating a legacy of violence.

  • Between Thackeray's followers who will rationalise everything about him and find the film charismatic and the detractors who will find it unconvincing and abhorrent, lies a hagiography in continuum.

  • Given how obsessed we are with politics, we deserve better films about it and the men who shape our nation.
