Critic Reviews for The Warrior Queen of Jhansi

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (26)

  • Altogether it's a rousing, passionate bit of film-making on a reasonably epic scale, with a cast of hundreds deployed for some big dusty battle scenes, which are duly impressive.

    December 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    December 3, 2019 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…
  • 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.

    December 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 19, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Swati Bhise's old-fashioned historical epic is sincere but unexciting.

  • One wonders how Everett got mixed up in this mess.
