SIKH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2010: FEATURE
The Rebel Queen
Director: Michael Singh
How could the daughter of an Indian dog kennel owner almost bring the British Empire to its knees? How did the Empire’s brilliantly ruthless propaganda machine scramble to fight back against her? “The Rebel Queen” reveals the turmoil, murder, mayhem and diplomatic intrigue surrounding this extraordinary woman, Maharani Jindan, wife of one Maharajah and mother of another. Forcibly separated from her son, escaping from captivity, and finally reunited with him, she sets in motion the wheels of justice that threaten to chase the British out of India.
