Boring movie .

Thackeray is an interesting journey of a person larger than life portrayed in a very entertaining way.

The movie was too dry and bland and involved key moments in his life which would have been served when presented in a documentary.

Movie only have Nawaz excellence and he has delivered another mind blowing performance.

Nice and exciting.

Dialogues at times are great but most often very confusing.

this is another boring movie.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui makes it worth watching .

Don't waste your money and time

Feels quite empty, had expected much more based on trailer .

It turns out to be so difficult to appreciate the rabble-rousing politician portrayed on screen.

Good movie, worth watching .

Worth watching.

Boring and eccentric view, feel sorry for nawaz...

Thackeray starting Nawaz is majorly shot in black and white and it's so gripping it won't bore the audiences for a second.

Worst movie of Nawaz,bad script!!.

Irrelevant scenes at random order makes it very confusing for the general audience.

A stellar performance by the stalwart Nawazuddin Siddiqui, some very good crowd-pleasing dialogues & a fascinating emotion of knowing more about the man - Balasaheb Thackeray.

The way his Biography is put forth by director may make you bore, Except Nawaz, The movie fails in every Aspect, The way balasaheb should be shown its exactly the opposite, Bad direction, I hope They remake this part with good direction

For me, It is Surprisingly good and Engaging film.

A boring autobiography of great personality.

The film has its moments but seems disjointed, with punch lines that are laboriously inserted without having any impact on the narrative.

However, the film is very slow & if you can't read Hindi you might find it difficult to keep up.

Watch it if you want for Nawazuddin else better ignore this political propaganda.

Sanjay Raut's story is definitely engaging and provides ample entertainment to audience.

The film was both informative and entertaining.

Movie is quite slow with less details and with skipping scenes .

The whole plot is confusing while watching on the big screen since it doesn't do anything good in building up the story of a cartoonist to being one of the most powerful leaders of the country.
