Default "Victoria and Abdul"

Saw the trailer for this and hope to see it on 23 Sept at Glasgow Film Theatre (GFT)

This particular film is just entertainment----I imagine the reactions of the few Indian people who see it will be the same as anywhere else.

(Although I find that Indian people are always surprised when they find out how small Victoria was, they imagined a tall fierce women!)

I enjoyed the film. It certainly portrayed the court circles and entourage round QV as a bunch of racists. i suppose that was the norm in 19th century Britain - only 30 years after the so-called "Mutiny"

And that "has gone the way of Nineveh and Tyre". Although it still forms the mindset of English Tory politicians !
