THE WARRIOR QUEEN OF JHANSI tells the true historical story of the Rani
(translation: Queen) of Jhansi, a feminist icon in India and a fearless,
freedom fighter – a real-life Wonder Woman who earned a reputation as the
Joan of Arc of the East when 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 demise of
the notorious British East India Company and the beginning of the British
Raj under Queen Victoria.
