Plot Storyline Of Jhansi

Jhansi is an amnesic woman living in Kerala. She met Sankeeth after saving her daughter Meha from an unexpected situation. Sankeeth brings her to his home in Hyderabad to give her a new life. Consequently, Sankeeth falls in love with Jhansi. She keeps getting flashbacks from her past, and her curiosity increases one day after meeting a man. She tries to revive her past stories and how she relates to all the people who keep approaching her. In the further story, Jhansi explores her relations with Barbie and unfolds the mysteries of her past.

Review Of Jhansi

The story begins with a glimpse of Jhansi’s past, where her connections with Modaar are shown. The series is an excellent example of female-centric films. Jhansi is shown as a bold character who doesn’t hesitate to risk her life in extreme situations. She is unaware of her true identity and does everything possible to find it. Anjali depicted Jhansi’s character just perfectly. She was the best suited for the role. She has done a remarkable job in playing her character and performing challenging action sequences. Barbie, played by Chandini Chowdary, played her part well despite limited screen time. She helps make the story more mysterious.

Plus Points

Anjali is the biggest asset to the series. She carries her role effortlessly and portrays the complex emotions of Jhansi flawlessly. The show starts off positively with the budding relationship between Sankeeth and Jhansi. Her frequent dreams keep us excited about her past. The premise of the story is exciting enough to keep us hooked. Aadarsh’s role as Sankeeth keeps our spirits high for an ideal husband. The bond between Anjali and Meha is beautifully portrayed. Khushi has done a commendable job as Meha. The storyline and Anjali’s acting is the only positive factor of the series.

Minus Point

The series left us with a lot of cliffhangers. The series’ end is not well executed, as many questions are left unanswered. The start was interesting enough to keep our hopes high, but the ending disappointed us. The writing is not done well, which makes the last few episodes confusing. The series misses out on logic and wavers around unwanted scenes. The end of the series is not worth the storyline and has a weak hook.

Stream It Or Not?

Jhansi is a good thriller being a woman-centralized series. Actors have performed their best in the series, and the plot’s premise is well-written. The only flaw is the poor screenplay and bland ending. The series leaves viewers with many unanswered questions lessening interest in season 2. It is a good one-time watch for thriller lovers. Jhansi is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
