This was a heist like no other. There was no gun, no elaborate escape plan, and they almost got away with the whole thing. It also happens to be a true story. In 1974, a woman landed at the New Delhi Railway station and asked to meet Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by claiming she was the Queen of Awadh; a story which quickly became a media sensation. Director Akriti Singh’s film is a fictional retelling of the crazy events that followed, which remain a living breathing testament to the idea that truth is, in fact, far stranger than fiction.
