It is Based on true events. It tells the story of an unlikely friendship between Queen Victoria and an Indian servant. Who is not a servant of Queen Victoria, he Worships of her The relation between his god with her.
Abdul, her servant, is written with offensive two-dimensionality. In every single scene, he is unwittingly wonderstruck with the Queen. In fact, he worships the ground she walks on (literally, he kisses her feet). For she is the “Empress of India” a fact we are reminded of over and over again.
The Victorian era was responsible for unimaginable atrocities in India. Indian MP Shashi Tharoor, author of Inglorious Empire: What the British did to India, demonstrates how Britain economised its industrial revolution through plundering India, reducing the country’s share of the world economy from 23 percent to 4 percent.
