Rani Lakshmi Bai rose above the patriarchal norms of her times. She had to make remarkable decisions at every page of her life, and she had to stand for what she believed in and cherished. This play juxtaposes her valour with her personal, so the audience can afford respect for the legend and the person.
Hugh Rose, in the report of the Rani's final battle, commented that ‘Rani Lakshmibai is personable, clever and beautiful’ and she is ‘the most dangerous of all Indian leaders.’ Colonel Malleson too is said to have written - ‘Whatever her faults in British eyes may have been, her countrymen will ever remember that she was driven by ill-treatment into rebellion, and that she lived and died for her country. We cannot forget her contribution to India.’
