The King's Speech Review




The King's Speech
The movie deserves all the accolades and plaudits that it's getting right now. The way Tom Hooper have depicted the royal saga, is very enchanting. 


The Duke of York, Prince Albert (Colin Firth) stammers whenever he speaks, and the stammering gets worse when he addresses his subjects. After trying every bit of means he tells his wife, the Duchess (Helena Bonham Carter) to stop consulting people for the cure of his stammering. As a last resort Duchess tries a speech therapist, Lionel Logue(Geoffrey Rush), whose methods are quite unorthodox. 


The movie shows both the complications, that Duke of York faces with hindrance in his speaking and the family problem involving his elder brother.


Absolutely speechless is the performance of Colin Firth. He shows all the aspects of the character with a touch of genius. He portrays both the helplessness and the royal steeliness in the character with equal brilliance. Geoffrey rush literally complements Firth's acting. All of the above which is said about Firth can be said about him too. The same goes for Helena Bonham Carter.
Michael Gambon, Timothy Spall, Derek Jacobi and Guy Pearce all do justice to theur parts.


Tom Hooper's direction is flawless. It takes one to the Royal family, where one feel pretty royal themselves. The cinematography(Danny Cohen) has a part to play there.


The music is according and soothing
