Director Swati Bhise's The Warrior Queen of Jhansi tells the true story of Rani Lakshmibai (Devika Bhise), an Inidan Queen who in 1857 led a rebellion against the British imperial forces.

Rupert Everett, Nathaniel Parker, Ben Lamb, Jodhi May and Derek Jacobi also star.


The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is in US cinemas in November, but a UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

The Warrior Queen of Jhansi tells the true story of the legendary Rani (translation: Queen) of Jhansi, a feminist icon in India and a fearless freedom fighter.  In 1857 India, this 24-year old General led her people into battle against the British Empire earning the reputation as the Joan of Arc of the East.  This real-life Wonder Woman's 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.
