Thackeray – Unfolding the real story of Balasaheb Thackeray’s courage, wisdom & indomitable truth. The tiger who was known for fearing none!
#Thackerays Trailer out NOW!
Directed by Abhijit Panse, Thackeray is based on the rise of Shiv Sena founder BalThackeray (played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who believed in “thoktantra” (anarchy, rough translation) over loktantra (democracy). However, the film fails to provide any insight into his trajectory or rise above anything more than one incendiary speech after the other.
The film begins with BalThackeray in the dock for inciting the demolition of the Babri Masjid. When he is asked about his supporters tearing down the mosque, he replies, “Nahi, nahi. Toda nahi, saaf kiya. (We did not demolish it, we cleaned it up.)” As soon as these words are uttered, chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram, Jai Shri Ram’ begin blaring in the background.
Metaphors are used with the subtlety of a sledgehammer. Communist leader Krishna Desai is stabbed to death soon after Bal Thackeray declares that it is time to do something about these “lal bandar”. It is hinted that the assassination was a milestone for the party – in the very next scene, which is entirely in black-and-white, the Shiv Sena supremo is seen trimming shrubs with a smug face and one marigold blooms brighter and brighter saffron.
Everything is tweaked to favour the Shiv Sena. Rather than instigators of violence during the 1993 riots in Mumbai, the party and its supporters are portrayed as the messiahs of the Hindus. Hooliganism is not only glorified, but presented as a solution to unemployment.
