The resulting narrative's split focus doesn't do either side many favors...

Considering all the blood spilled before and since, this epilogue doesn't feel quite so triumphant as "The Warrior Queen of Jhansi" wants it to be.

Earnestness and reverence is the death knell of many an "inspiring" movie, and "The Warrior Queen of Jhansi" falls into that trap.

The battle epic "The Warrior Queen of Jhansi," one of the few movies made in India to make the leap to mainstream American screens, is an audacious debut for director Swati Bhise, even if the results aren't always up to snuff.

This is a first film from Bhise, and an ambitious one, though it doesn't always deliver the force the story deserves.

Swati Bhise's old-fashioned historical epic is sincere but unexciting.

Written and directed by women and following a historical female protagonist with whom common audiences might not be familiar, Bhise's directorial debut tells a relevant woman's story for our times.

For the lack of good acting, mostly resulting from poor dialogue, the movie at least manages to represent its characters as genuinely believable figures of a real history. That's the least you can ask for from a historical biopic.

Created by a mother/daughter team, they seem more concerned about enlightening audience instead of telling a compelling narrative. A phenomenal freedom fighter like Rani Lakshmibai deserves a much more thrilling depiction, but it's still worth a watch.

The Rani's story is a powerful one, and one that I never knew. Bhise is wonderful on-screen and has a solid place in my heart especially given her last fight in the film.

Devika Bhise brings royal Indian freedom fighter life with dignity and respect with spectacularly costumes. Mind-boggling how issues with women being treated with common decency and respect are still problematic even in this era

The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is not just about a warrior queen... Bringing emotion, drama, and truth to the forefront, this is a film for every mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, and friend - each a warrior every day of their lives.
November 18, 2019
Although it doesn't quite have the sweep you want from a historical epic, the battle scenes are exciting, the colorful depictions of Indian culture are gorgeous, and the heroine is worth rooting for.

The pounding hooves that whisk us through the pre-credit montage recall the manner of storytelling audiences lapped up throughout the '60s, but which is now the stuff that Hallmark Channel dramas are made of.
