Description The Warrior Queen of Jhansi tells the story of Lakshmibai, the historic Queen of Jhansi who fiercely led her army against the British East India Company in the infamous mutiny of 1857. From Queen Elizabeth to Queen Victoria, two-and-a half-centuries of East India Company rule will be reversed by its attempt to crush India's Warrior Queen. Lakshmibai is known as one of the most prominent figures within the independence movement of India. The passion to free her province from colonial rule led this young woman to become one of the greatest generals of the Indian army and to go down in history for her bravery, strategic acumen, and as a force to reckon with by the East India Company and the British Raj. The Warrior Queen of Jhansi is the story of the woman who lived, fought and died for the freedom of her people.

The set-up is simplistic. A young warrior, Avandar (Raima Tijani), is hired to defend the Wall of Khals and later the Sun Throne from the invading tribes of Khajiiti and Argonians. Avandar finds himself ambushed on the battlefield, along with his friend and fellow warrior, Amaund (Troya Salt), the two encounter a very tall, evil-looking skeleton, which is apparently a man-hat. The evil is also armed with a bow and arrow and a magic sword. The two of them head off to the village of Riften where the young woman of the village (Astrid Berges-Frisbey) is hiding from the evil in a cave. Eventually they are captured by the evil, the skeleton is killed and Avandar rescues Amaund. The evil takes the bow and arrow and has them travel back to the village to attack the village with the sword. Avandar has to defend the town against the army of the evil. In the end, Avandar and Amaund are successful, but the evil is defeated. Avandar thanks Amaund for his help and Amaund is so happy he forgives Avandar for the brutal murder of his friend. We see a happy ending for Avandar and Amaund and we know that the good guy will get his revenge. That is what a fantasy film is supposed to be like: an adventure. If the story is about a hero who rescues the princess, then it should have a happy ending. So far, the tale of Avandar and Amaund has not been about a heroic hero. It has been about the hero saving the princess. We have had a hero saving a princess in Lord of the Rings, in Harry Potter, in other fantasy films like Indiana Jones and Robin Hood and I am sure in a few more we will see. This film is different, the story is told from the point of view of the evil, who is an evil wizard who is trying to do evil things to the human race. This is different than Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter or Indiana Jones. The good guys are good and the evil is evil. Avandar, in this film, is a hero. His greatest hero is Amaund, who forgives him for killing his friend and helps him to save the village. Avandar becomes an eternal hero in the tale of Khajiiti. At the end of the film, Amaund and Avandar ride off together and into the sunset. The children in the village have a picnic and look at the sunset with their families, where the Khajiiti queen (Mirta) watches the sunset from her royal palace. She is a woman who is really a brave warrior, while Avandar is a good, brave warrior. Perhaps they should marry, if they are ever in love. The film ends with a story about the good warrior that is not really an adventure, but rather a sad one.

Eddie 'The Eagle' Johnston is an Indian who spends his days in an Indian village and his nights in a few hundred miles away in the French colony of Jhansi. Eddie has already been in the French Army several times before but he was sent back to the village to marry a local woman named Mrs. Burghley and to raise a family. At the village he meets Cate, a beautiful young girl, and soon falls in love with her. However, the French Government has decreed that Eddie must return to his village and fight for his village. However, he is forced to leave the village in order to go and fight for the French. After having been away for almost a month, Eddie returns home to find that the village has been taken over by a whole battalion of the French Army. Unfortunately, he does not know where he is going, and thus must go to the French, his village, and his wife. So far so good, and indeed, the book in which this film is based is an excellent adaptation of the book and very close to it. However, the movie is much better. What I liked the most was the fact that the French soldiers were not just some old soldiers, but very well trained and very brave men. The French Army was only one of many, but it was certainly a very good one. The movie shows the French army as a very superior force. It is definitely worth watching the movie. The movie is very much in the style of a 'war movie'. Not that it is a dull or boring movie, it is just that it is not very well directed. The war scenes are very good, and very well done, but when the movie was about the village I felt that the movie did not seem to know where it was going. However, I thought the movie was quite good, I did not get bored at all.
