While the film certainly looks fine, it lacks the grit and gumption that such an epic story demands.

(Warrior Queen) doesn’t quite reach the epic proportions it aspires to, but it’s a functional period tale with a good bit to reveal about an inspiring historical figure.

(A) blend of impressiveness, ridiculousness, and lustily on-the-nose messaging in one neat package.

This potentially exciting, inspiring tale drowns in a sea of predictable action beats...

While I suppose you could do worse than The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, I know you could do better.

As dramatized, “The Warrior Queen” takes all the biopic shortcuts (narration, sped-up timeline, ham-fisted exposition) only to get to a depiction of the drumbeat to conflict that traffics in platitudes and clichés.

An unfortunately clunky, relentlessly corny salute to Rani Laxmibai.

The story of an insurgent Indian woman certainly seems timely in 2019. Too bad the new account of her uprising, The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, is as stodgy as a movie from 1958, if not earlier.

Too tepidly sincere to consistently excite or amuse. What keeps it at least moderately interesting on a scene-to-scene basis is the novelty value of seeing a strong and self-confident woman, credibly portrayed by Devika Bhise.
