This period drama movie tells the true historical story of the Rani (Queen) of Jhansi, a feminist icon in India and a fearless, freedom fighter – who earned a reputation as the Joan of Arc of the East. In 1857 India, as a 24-year old General, she led her people into battle against the British Empire.
Her insurrection shifted the balance of power in the region and set in motion the end of the notorious British East India Company and the beginning of the British Raj under Queen Victoria.
The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, which was was originally titled ‘Swords and Sceptres: The Rani of Jhansi’, is the feature directorial debut of Indian filmmaker Swati Bhise. She also co-wrote the screenplay with Devika Bhise, and Olivia Emden.
