The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is more ambitious educational classroom video than epic cinematic experience.

There is a fascinating true story buried deep within the new film The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, but it's hard to appreciate in such a mundane package.

She was most impressive. She deserved a better movie.

...the experience of watching The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is like someone else telling you what happened in Braveheart.
November 20, 2019
The filmmakers push hard to beat us over the head with a dynamic of good versus evil that's already intrinsic to the circumstances.

Her thrilling life story falls flat on screen

Devika is sincere in her portrayal in a simplified narrative that does little more than follow the form of a school essay on the Indian warrior queen.

While the film certainly looks fine, it lacks the grit and gumption that such an epic story demands. Most of all, it doesn't quite make Laxmibai the all-guns blazing hero that she was.

November 12, 2019
A useful tool for Swati Bhise's ever-growing resources for lecturing America on Indian history and arts, and nothing else

November 13, 2019
The Warrior Queen of Jhansi squandered a chance to make a rousing period drama about a little-known female ruler who deserves to be remembered. Let's hope the next movie about her gets it right.

Malnourished...depressingly uninspired.

November 15, 2019
Unfortunately, the film works far better as an educational tool than as entertainment, with production values far below the norm for the sort of Hollywood action movie this film aspires to be.

It's a fascinating story that deserves a less superficial and more accurate treatment.

November 15, 2019
The makers of The Warrior Queen of Jhansi don't give viewers as many reasons to invest in their versions of these characters, not beyond speech-like declarations of intent and canned drama that often resolves itself in a matter of minutes.

While I am glad it opened my eyes to this warrior woman of the 1800s who dared defy the British, I'm frustrated that the filmmakers failed to find a way to bring the story to life with more artistry.
November 15, 2019
Earnest but heavy-handed docudrama is uneven and violent.

One wonders how Everett got mixed up in this mess.

Will you be eager to learn more about this fierce "Warrior Queen" afterward? Yes. Will it be because you sensed more there than was melodramatically delivered? Probably.

There's little doubt that Rani's story is an engaging and undertold chapter of history, but The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is not the best way to tell it.

The true-life story of a feminist pioneer is compromised by heavy-handed clichés.
