The British folks really know how to direct, produce and promote movies about their great leaders, and it seems like Mr. Frears has created yet another historical masterpiece. This is a biographical film, a drama slash comedy about the legendary Queen Victoria and her relationship with the brisk and lively servant from India, Abdul. The brand-new Victoria and Abdul movie trailer 2017 shows that this is going to be a fun, historically-correct, engaging and heart-warming story.
We’ve got the iconic British actress, Judi Dench, playing the world-famous Queen, and Ali Fazal, a fine Indian man who’s becoming a big star in Hollywood, playing Karim; and a bunch of other top-class English actors/actresses, including Olivia Williams and Eddie Izzard as the official cast. As we learned from the trailer, Victoria is old, exhausted and bored out of her mind, and nothing can cheer her up anymore, until Abdul, a mere servant from the British-controlled India, a clerk, comes into her life and changes it completely.
A Friendship Between A Queen And A Servant? Why Not?!
Now, this is a true story, it all happened in real life, which makes it that much more interesting to follow the unusual bond between the woman who has over a billion folks awaiting her command and a modest clerk from a far-away country. The Victoria and Abdul teaser trailer hints that the movie will be equally touching and uplifting and viewers of all ages and nationalities will find this tale satisfying and worth buying a ticket for. Victoria is burdened by the decisions that she had to make while she was the Queen and desperately needs someone’s shoulder to cry on and to find salvation with.
Karim turns out to be that person, and soon they develop a friendship unlike any the Queen’s inner circle has ever seen. Are they jealous of it? Yes, they are. Do they want to destroy it and win back Victoria’s trust? Of course, they do! So, these two will have to overcome numerous obstacles and do everything in their power to keep the outside world from destroying their strong bond. With the help of this young, engaging man, she finds the beauty and the joy in life again and even admits that she’s never been this happy ever before.
A Story Worth Checking Out
At the end of the day, if you’re not a fan of historical British chart-toppers, it would be best for you to avoid the premiere. On the other hand, if the new Victoria and Abdul official trailer 2017 managed to win over your heart, keep in mind that the movie will be released on September 22nd.
