Storyline:A warrior princess fulfils her destiny
As a history lesson, Rudhramadevi checks all the boxes. A girl is born to the queen of the Kakatiya dynasty, and because women cannot rule – even palaces, apparently, have a glass ceiling – the king raises the child as a boy, a warrior. He’s worried that his vassals will revolt at the prospect of serving a queen, and with good reason. One of them (Suman) declares that women were put on this earth solely to serve men and quench their desires.
But such a secret can only remain secret for so long, and the rest of the film is about Rudhramadevi (Anushka) fulfilling her destiny and proving that she deserves that crown. It’s a great story, and it needs to be told. Even Amar Chitra Katha, which chronicled the lives of Rani Abbakka and Ahilyabai Holkar and the Rani of Jhansi, seems to have missed out on Rudhramadevi.
But what was she like as a person? “Gender identity” may be too modern, too psychoanalytical, a term – but surely a girl who grows up thinking she’s a boy is bound to have had some confusion. All we get is a scene where the girl comes of age and falls into her mother’s arms. But soon, she’s back as a boy. She thrills her people by taming an elephant – she drops the disguise only in her private quarters, wearing silks that no one else can see. It can’t have been easy.
