The two-part film, which premieres this weekend, charts her rise to fame, as well as her bad/abusive marriage to her husband Ike Turner and her restoration as a rock star in the 1980s.

Although she hasn't journeyed since 2009, the singer recently published chronicles and launched a musical about her 

 own life.

Director Dan Lindsay said the singer had imagined the documentary as her final words of life.

I appreciate all this respect and love for me, he quoted her as saying, but I am done, I am so tired, I just want to live in leisure.

Tina Turner's husband, the former Music Executive Edwin Bach, said the documentary as the star's goodbye to her fans".

He simply called Tina Turner, the film will be broadcast on a famous channel HBO in the US and Sky Documentaries in the UK at end of this weekend.

Woven around a candid interview with the 81-year-old, Tina Turner, it discovered the singer's rise from a self-declared girl who belongs from the cotton fields to one of the most renowned names in music history.

For the early 15 years of her career, the singer Tina Turner was separately associated with Ike Turner, her former husband, with whom she gave hits like Nutbush City Limits, Proud Mary and River Deep Mountain High.

It was Ike Turner who gave her name from Anna Mae Bullock to Tina Turner - a decision he took without her knowledge, foretell years of controlling and bad/abusive behaviour in their marriage.

In the film, she describes how he would beat her before having a physical hunger, and then make her force to go out on stage and perform.

I was living a life of death, Tina Turner tells the filmmakers. She tried to suicide before leaving the marriage in 1976, the documentary reveals this fact.

After this, she became one of the renowned artists of the 1980 and 90s with hits like What's Love Got To Do With It, Private Dancer and The Best.

That established a story that the singer had handled her problems - but the filmmakers knew the reality was more complicated than that seen.

Early reviews of Tina Turner's documentary has been to a greater extent positive, praising Turner's frankness and taking pleasure in the chance to relive her biggest hits.

Tina Turner's story, you should watch Tina,  said Vulture.  The ways in which tragedy and triumph have defined her come through clear and vivid.

Parts of the film will bring tears to your eyes, said the New York Times, in particular the parts where she gives forgiveness to Ike Turner - who died due to an overdose of cocaine in 2007. The story of her marriage is well-balanced. 

Tina Turner movies are 17 and in these movies, she performed well.
