A political drama set in Bihar of 1990’s. With its caste arithmetic, traditional satraps and the emerging voice…will an illiterate woman Rani Bharti (Huma Qureshi) survive this? Rani Bharti (Huma Qureshi) is a homemaker and the wife of Bihar’s chief minister Bheema (Sohum Shah). All she cares about is her house and her husband. She wants to pack her bags and go back to the village after her husband resigns from the post of Bihar’s CM. But her life takes a turn when her husband and Bihar’s CM is made to announce the name of his successor. While his party members look excited to hear who has been appointed, he makes Rani his successor, leaving everyone surprised.


  • I am not at all a fan of political dramas. In fact, since i kinda hate politics and not even interested in this topic, i keep myself away from these political web series as i find them boring. However, MAHARANI turned out to be an absolute out of the blue surprise for me!
  • This series is basically inspired by the life of former CM of Bihar, Rabri Devi and how an illiterate underdog in politics realizes that not only is she up against opposition but also against the dirt in her own party with shocking revelations towards the climax.
  • The series is 10 episode long and not one episode i found to be dull. Every sequence has something interesting going on or something that adds value to the story, i was rarely bored. Remember, this series is heavily fictionalized so do not dare compare the events with real life Bihar Politics although there are similarities (If you do start comparing, then you are bound to say stuff like “Wrong info showcased”, “Trying to show a corrupt party in Bihar” and so on and you wont be any different from the ones getting offended by Family Man S2) . In order to avoid Bihar audience from getting offended, they have changed names and events and even their sequence. Dialogues are really witty for the first time I enjoyed politicians throwing witty tantrums at each other and it’s a treat to watch.
  • Right from the lead to the last named cast, everyone gives a terrific performance. Huma as Rani never shows signs that she immediately grasps everything as soon as she becomes CM, instead she gradually learns which is great to watch. Others like Amit Sial, Sohum Shah steal the show it seems Amit Sial was born to play the role of a wicked looking opposition (He probably represented Nitish Kumar here). Inaamulhaq was already my favorite actor the day i first saw him in “Airlift” and here he plays an honest bengali officer whose bengali is quite hilarious to hear as well as entertaining and a very humble role.
  • Some cliches and bizzare moments that mark the negative points of this series but i chose to ignore them.
  • 10 episodes, well I could not binge watch (cuz of my own personal work load) but never missed an opportunity to watch it whenever i was free and managed to complete it in 2 days and for the first time i throroughly enjoyed a political drama just because of an interesting screenplay and terrific performances. I reiterate my point, do not compare it with real politics, treat it like a fictional story that is only inspired by (but does not fully represent) Bihar politics. Trust me, you wont get an opportunity then to criticize the show for wrong info.
  • What a gripping political drama it is. Unexpectedly better than the first season with some top notch performances especially by Huma Qureshi. What a talent she is. Soham Shah and Amit Sial as Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar are too involved in their characters that you’d think that the entire history of Bihar had come on screen with no impartiality to any character with a pinch of excogitation and creativity. A perfect blend of castes and religions based politics that revolves around a family and an outsider and how they manipulate the people of Bihar to either remain in power or come into the power. I loved the role of Kalpana as well who I think has played the role of Prashant Kishore who helped Nitish dethrone the long running horse of Yadavs family at the behest of the Vajpayee Government in the centre. A must watch series. It’s definitely 8+ so far for me.
