Maharani Season 3 review: Three Cheers!

What: Maharani 3 – SonyLIV super-duper hit series on Saheb, Biwi Aur Bihar turns into a battle between a fearless tigress and those siyars that finds Huma Qureshi as Rani Bharti in top form in the Subash Kapoor created and Saurabh Bhave directed web series.

Maharani Season 3 synopsis

Accused of murdering her husband and ex Bihar CM Bheema Bharti (Sohum Shah), Rani Bharti is in prison preparing for her ‘inter’ exams.

In an unprecedented shocking incident, Dulari Yadav (Sukumar Tudu) dies due to heart attack after coming back from Machan Baba’s (Tarun Kumar) Aashram.

Speculations regarding Dulari Yadav’s death not due to heart attack starts spreading and the political scenario hot’s up.

Meanwhile, Rani’s family is attacked and Rani seeks bail.

What happens next. The murderers of Bhima Bharti are roaming free and Rani wants justice. What will Navin Kumar (Amit Sial) and his gang will do.


Maharani 3 review

Maharani Season 1 was about Bihar politics, the Saheb and his Biwi and how the illiterate but strong willed and honest Biwi – Rani Bharti (Huma Qureshi) becomes a never-ending nightmare to the Ex CM Bhima Bharti (Sohum Shah) who liked everyone believed Rani will work as a toy controlled by her husband Bhima.

The second season is how Rani gets framed in the murder of her husband Bhima and Bhima’s arch rival Navin Kumar (Amit Sial) finally becoming the CM of Bihar.

In season 3 Rani is in prison, Martin Ekka (Dibyendu Bhattacharya) is leading the investigation. Season 3 is completely personal. Rani wants justice (read revenge) the creator and writer Subash Kapoor along with the director Saurabh Bhave and co writers Nandan Singh and Umashankar Singh build a strong defence for Rani’s behaviour and her humanity.

Rani transforms into a shrewd planner drawing a thin line between justice and revenge. The grey shade to Rani’s character is interesting though the third season to a certain section of audience may give a feeling of a Bollywood revenge drama.

The politics and caste divide take a back seat as women empowerment takes the driving seat. Surprisingly, the cuss words are comparatively less than the previous seasons.

Still, in spite of being predominately a revenge saga, questions like how, when, where and what arising at times, Maharani Season 3 is solidly gripping, eminently watchable and, obviously, we are all looking forward to season four (yes, a hint has been dropped). Yes season 3 reaches to a satisfactory conclusion but I believe there might be an extension.

It’s a commendable job to maintain the interest, spirit and expectations of a series like Maharani which has achieved a cult status. Sushmita Sen’s Aarya third season was just a disaster, but Maharani is a winner tibara (third time).

Some interesting new female characters are introduced and they give this series an edge.


Huma Qureshi – is top-notch. She gets smart, cunning and shrewd in the third season. The actress maintains the outstanding brilliance shown in the previous seasons. Excellent.

Dibyendu Bhattacharya gets more meat and is brilliant.

Pramod Pathak is excellent once again.

Amit Sial is outstanding tibara (third time)

Atul Tiwari as Mahamahim shines again.

Sohum Shah is fantastic in a short role.

Sadly, Kani Kusruti gets less scope.

Good support comes from Anuja Sathe, Neha Chauhan, Vineeet Kumar, Sushil Pandey, Mohd Ashique Hussain, Sukumar Tudu, Tarun Kumar.

Maharani Season 3 – final words

If you have loved Maharani 1 and 2, Maharni Season 3 will not disappoint you. It fulfils the expectations and delivers.

Going with a deserving 4 stars.

Maharani 3 is streaming on SonyLIV from March 07 2024.
