About Victoria And Abdul
Victoria and Abdul presents the true story of the unexpected friendship between the illustrious British monarch, Queen Victoria and a young Indian clerk. Set in the later years of her reign, we follow Abdul Karim as he travels to Britain to participate in the Queen's Golden Jubilee. He finds favour with the ageing monarch, and the two become firm friends. This unfortunately lazy nostalgia piece sugars many of the realities of the colonial era, but is redeemed by a powerhouse performance from the 82 year old Dame Judi Dench.
