"SWORDS AND SCEPTRES also starring Ben Lamb and directed by female director Swati Bhise (the producer of Dev Patel's The Man Who Knew Infinity), is a sweeping historical tale of women's empowerment, which brings the true story of Lakshmibai (played by Indian star Devika Bhise whom you have watched before in The Accidental Husband and The Man Who Knew Infinity with Dev Pathel and Jeremy Irons), the historic Queen of Jhansi who fiercely led her army against the British East India Company in the infamous mutiny of 1857. The movie has finished production earlier last winter and should probably be released sometime later this year."

I'm sure the film won't depict her role in the murder of British hostages during the mutiny.

Will be a good reason to put on a few mutiny games

Is it a musical?

It'll be ok for this to paint the British as evil. Of course if a British film came out showing the Cawnpore Massacre and the atrocities carried out by the Mutineers, it would be accused of inciting racism…

funny how standards work… :(

Yup lots of 'bad Brit' crap coming down the pipe, funny how nobody mentions more Indians fought with us during the mutiny than against but hey ho.
