Victoria & Abdul

Featuring the relationship between Queen Victoria and her Munshi Abdul Karim, the trailer for the upcoming British-American biographical drama film, Victoria & Abdul was released yesterday. Based on the book of same name by Shrabani Basu (a personal favourite of mine), the plot focuses on an older Queen Victoria’s relationship with her Indian bearer, Abdul Karim, who eventually became her Munshi (tutor), and taught her Urdu and the Quran, as well as introduced her to the country of which she was Empress. Dame Judi Dench reprises her role as Queen Victoria from the 1997 film Mrs Brown, while Abdul is played by Indian actor, Ali Fazal. The movie premieres in the UK on September 15. Take a look at the trailer below-

  1. I look forward to the film. In the meantime, I’ve ordered Basu’s Spy Princess and Curry. I appreciate your recommendations 🙂 I hope you have a good weekend.
