    'Rudhramadevi' over-worships it's patriotic and highly jingoistic lead. Instead of a sober research on her life, the director commits a bad mistake of using a smug, stale script and infusing it with token white people. I was laughing on the climax which was unintentionally so funny- that the Persian ruler crowns his daughter and owes by the name of Rudhramadevi. While there are some decent war scenes and thanks to the stinging performance of Anushka Shetty as a lead: a deft, reasonably good part of shouting voice that helps, but that might be the only decent thing about a terrible film which makes it's solid female lead a bore rather than celebrating her as a woman, as a warrior, and, textbook cliché lover.
