MUMBAI: Star Movies Select HD will air the inspirational true story ‘Queen of Katwe’ on 11 November at 9 pm.

The film based on the inspiring story of one of Uganda’s highest rated chess players, Phiona Mutesi, Queen of Katwe is directed by Mira Nair and stars an Academy Award winner in Lupita Nyong’o.

One of the most celebrated directors in India and abroad, Padma Bhushan awardee Mira Nair has made a name for herself with her gritty and powerful films and Queen of Katwe is no different. Nair, who made her mark with the National Award winning film ‘Salaam Bombay,’ has raised the bar even higher with this true-life story.

The film is the story of Ugandan Chess Champion Phiona Mutesi; a grounded individual who comes from a rough, poverty-stricken childhood and yet teaches us that anything is possible if one is willing to learn. Based on a true story, the film is a depiction of Mutesi’s constant battles against the odds and her eventual triumph that puts her at the forefront of her nation.

From start to finish, Queen of Katwe keeps the viewer engrossed and creates an everlasting impact. As A.O Scott from the New York Times puts it, “If there is anyone out there capable of remaining unmoved by this true-life triumph-of-the-underdog sports story, I don’t think I want to meet that person.”

For a movie that focusses so much on chess, a game looked at as dull and slow-paced at times, Queen of Katwe is an absolute breeze. If you’re looking for a story that will leave you inspired, then Star Movies Select HD has just the thing for you.
