This is a biographic film about how King George VI (Colin Firth) overcame his stuttering problem to become the King when his elder brother is abdicated from throne because he marries an American divorced woman (apparently marrying a divorced woman is a disqualification for the post of king!!!). Now there is a major hitch, Albert has a bad case of stammer & hence can’t be an effective King because that essentially involves making speeches. He tries several speech therapists but to no avail, then he is referred to Lionel Logue (Geoffery Rush) whose methods are off the wall & some what eccentric (Shouting Profanities, Singing) but nevertheless apparently effective. He deals with George VI on an equal footing, refuses to drop in at the his palace but demanding that he drops by at his (lionel’s) office for therapy sessions (As Lionel puts it: My Game, My Castle, My Rules), addresses him as ‘Bertie’ instead of Your Royal Highness…at first George VI is very uptight & very upset about this rather radical behavior but gradually he realizes the effectiveness of Lionel’s ways & the warmth of his spirit. A friendship develops between the two. & then the Dreaded speech has to be delivered..on one level the story is about how George VI overcame his stuttering problem but it is also a poignant story about the friendship between the two..The King realizes that he has had no real friends in life so far….performances by both Colin Firth & Geoffery Rush are impeccable in their respective roles as the Duke/King & the friendly Speech Therapist. The movie doesn’t have any Action but holds your attention till the end.
