Alka Singh (Kangana Ranaut) is the leader of a political party who loves Rohan Mehra (Vir Das), a rising star of Bollywood.The elections in Gwalior have just finished and Alka's reign has come to an end. Her opposition, the Tomar party, have come into power and want to use their new position to take out Alka, but first, they want to hurt her. The Tomars abduct Rohan from Mumbai and take him back to Gwalior with the aim to kill him. They are about to pull the trigger when Revolver Rani turns up, all guns blazing and saves his life.
Sai Kabir, who has directed Revolver Rani, said in an Interview, "It was a great experience… we shot the film in Chambal. It's a black comedy and it's a political film". Producer Tigmanshu Dhulia says that Revolver Rani is a complete B grade entertainment movie and everybody will like it. It was reported that Kangana Ranaut and other crew members were stopped by rebels near Chambal valley to capture photos with Kangana. Kangana denied their request and succeeded to get herself and crew out from the spot.
The soundtrack composed by Sanjeev Srivastava received positive reviews. The soundtrack consists of 9 tracks with Usha Utthup singing title number "Revolver Rani" which reflected the style of R D Burman. The lyrics have been penned by Shaheen Iqbal and Puneet Sharma. One does not expect too much from the music of a film with a title like Revolver Rani. Moreover, the composer Sanjeev Srivastava and lyricist Puneet Sharma are new. But after listening to the soundtrack five or six times, you may start liking it. The soundtrack of Revolver Rani is unconventional and largely experimental. It grows on you the more you hear it. Rediff gave 3/5 stars for the soundtrack.
It has received an aggregate score of 5.6 (out of 10) on the review aggregating site TheReviewMonk, based on 30 critic reviews. As per Shubha Shetty-Saha of Mid Day The film Revolver Rani starts with much promise, with a kind of quirkiness and black humour that fits well, but it begins to fizzle out by the end of it. Watch it for Kangana Ranaut and the music. Film critic Subhash K. Jha rated it 3.5 stars and wrote that Revolver Rani is a fiercely original piece of cinema, crafted with compelling concentration and impassioned intuition. As per Jha, Kangana plays like a cross between Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and Seema Biswas in Bandit Queen. Giving it 3 stars out of 5, Anupama Chopra praised the film in a review for Hindustan Times saying that "what keeps Revolver Rani together are the performances and the sly humour. I particularly enjoyed the two testosterone-filled duffer politicians whose only aim is to kill Alka. If you like uplifting, cheerful cinema, then this isn't the movie for you. But if, like me, you can enjoy bad people doing bad things, then Revolver Rani will be fun." Harshada Rege from Daily News and Analysis praised Ranaut's performance, saying that "she plays the Venice-loving, gun-trotting politician in Chambal with much aplomb. From a vulnerable Rani in Queen to the mighty Alka Singh in Revolver Rani, the actress sure knows how to make and then, equally easily, break the mould." Shubhra Gupta from The Indian Express panned the film, saying that the character of Rani in the film was neither believable or relatable, making it "a tiresome Bollywoodesque trudge... It is clear that Kangana Ranaut is trying hard for the 'sur' (mass), but this is not her territory: she gets to that well-judged manic edge only a couple of times, and then slides back. Her hold on the character is slippery, as is her accent, and the shade of her tan."
This film had a poor run in the Indian Box Office with an occupancy of 15%.
