Storyline

The Warrior Queen of Jhansi tells the story of Lakshmibai, the historic Queen of Jhansi who fiercely led her army against the British East India Company in the infamous mutiny of 1857. From Queen Elizabeth to Queen Victoria, two-and-a half-centuries of East India Company rule will be reversed by its attempt to crush India's Warrior Queen. Lakshmibai is known as one of the most prominent figures within the independence movement of India. The passion to free her province from colonial rule led this young woman to become one of the greatest generals of the Indian army and to go down in history for her bravery, strategic acumen, and as a force to reckon with by the East India Company and the British Raj. The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is the story of the woman who lived, fought and died for the freedom of her people. Written by Judy

Great story, cheap movie.
20 November 2019 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

It felt like a poetic history lesson. Don't get me wrong I love a good history lesson but I came to see a movie about a Warrior Queen I did not get enough of that in any fashion. It's all talk after talk and it was very generic. Rani did not have enough personality to make me feel anything for her. Nobody really did, cause I barely hated the white folks in the movie for what they are doing to the Brown people. I think the filmmakers for introducing me to a strong warrior queen, but the introduction lacks the heart worthy of her.
