Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 4/10
Huma Qureshi tries her best, but SonyLIV's hollow show is over-plotted yet underwritten ... Full Review

Archika Khurana | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
To conclude, given the material at hand, the narrative is often uneven and at times far too stretched, however, there is enough here to keep you engaged till the end, for what it seems, the last episode sets the ground for the next season ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: - | 4/10
After a few flourishes, this Huma Qureshi drama is just a drag, a prime example of how a competent actor gets imprisoned in banal writing ... Full Review

Huma Qureshi headlines a flawed yet gripping political drama ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The show is nothing more than another ‘masala’ cocktail in which every politician is a devil ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5 | 6/10
At the centre of a cast swelling with accomplished actors, Huma Qureshi is equal to the task. She makes a fair fist of a gamut of emotions, expressing them all, even when the writing isn't at its best, with impressive conviction ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 4/10
The incessant plotting and scheming of Maharani turns monotonous very quickly, the consequence of which can best be described as artistic harakiri ... Full Review

Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Huma Qureshi Becomes A Spectacular Queen But The Writing Does Not Let Her Shine As She Should Have ... Full Review

Leisure Byte: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Overall, Huma shines in this weak and scattered political drama. At times, the story is gripping but mostly, you wish to scroll ahead because the scenes can’t hold your attention. So watch it for the actor’s performance ... Full Review

Rediff: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Huma Qureshi makes this predictable yet engaging political drama binge-watch worthy ... Full Review

FirstPost: 3/5 | 6/10
Huma Qureshi shines in a sanitised portrayal of Rabri Devi to form an engaging political drama ... Full Review

Amar Ujala: 2/5 | 4/10
कास्टिंग में गच्चा खा गई ‘महारानी’. तकनीकी रूप से वेब सीरीज ‘महारानी’ काफी कमजोर है। कलर पैलेट का सेलेक्शन सीरीज की सबसे बड़ी गलती है। कहानी यहीं से नकली लगनी शुरू हो जाती है। ... Full Review

Scroll: - | 6/10
Huma Qureshi exerts herself more than she has in recent performances. Rani’s overnight transformation beggars belief, but Qureshi gives her all to possibly the most important role of her career ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Huma Qureshi-starrer fails to impress. The plot fails to make an impact due to the underwhelming execution ... Full Review

Aaj Tak: 4/5 | 8/10
तो बस यहीं कहेंगे, अपनी जिंदगी के 450 मिनट महारानी सीरीज को दे दीजिए, राजनीति भी समझ जाएंगे, एंटरटेनमेंट भी हो जाएगा और कोरोना काल में एक शानदार सीरीज ... Full Review

IANS | ABP Live: 1/5 | 2/10
Overall, "Maharani" reiterates the filmi adage that politics, caste, class, crime, dirty money and absolute power invariably make for a heady narrative cocktail. Only, it needs to be served right ... Full Review

Jagran: 3/5 | 6/10
वेब सीरीज़ की सबसे कमज़ोर कड़ी इसकी लिखाई में कुछ तथ्यों की अनदेखी है, जो वेब सीरीज़ के अंतिम प्रभाव को कम कर देते हैं। अगर इन पर काम किया जाता तो महारानी का असर कुछ और गहरा होता। ... Full Review

Mid-Day: 3.5/5 | 7/10
More journalistic, than plain fantasy. Certainly more (authentically) Bihar politics, than anything I’ve seen on screen — of late, or ever ... Full Review

Subash K Jha | BollySpice: 3/5 | 6/10
The rippling writing is intended to pull in the crowds and it succeeds to a point, except when the quest for audience approval takes the narrative way over the top ... Full Review

Biz Asia Live: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Overall, ‘Maharani’ is a decent watch which will keep the audience suitably entertained. It particularly shows the versatility of Qureshi and Shah, together making a rather interesting pair in all the scenes they share throughout the series ... Full Review

Lehren: 3/5 | 6/10
Bovine & Bold. Wit prised out credibly better-written situations would have been so much more appreciated. ... Full Review

Planet Bollywood: 3/5 | 6/10
A well-researched show that hugely benefits from the performances ... Full Review

I Next Live: 3/5 | 6/10
बिहार की राजनीति में दिलचस्पी रखने वाले और पोलिटिकल ड्रामा के फैंस को पसंद आएगी। ... Full Review

Bhaskar: 3.5/5 | 7/10
अभिनय की बात करें तो बढ़ती कहानी के साथ-साथ हुमा अपने कैरेक्टर में धीरे-धीरे जो ग्रोथ लाती हैं, वह लाजवाब है। इसे उनकी अब तक की सबसे उम्दा अदाकारी कहा जाए तो गलत नहीं होगा। ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 7.5/10
Maharani is also a sensibly directed show. Despite multiple confrontational scenes, director Karan Sharma never lets them degenerate into over-the-top filmi dlalogue-baazi and keeps things restrained ... Full Review

Let's OTT: 3.25/5 | 6.5/10
Strong characters and an authentic Bihari milieu make this political drama a gripping watch ... Full Review

Bollywood Bubble: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Huma Qureshi excels in the series that had the potential to be great but it feels like a lost opportunity ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 6/10
The web show created by Subhash Kapoor also tackles the issue of caste politics that is at the very nerve of the people of Bihar in an intelligent manner without ever being patronising or preachy at the least. It is at last a show of ambition, power and the drama that follows with it ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A solitary flaw in the lead actress' character arc and some editing issues aside, Maharani is a captivating, intriguing and engaging political web series that's elevated further by Huma Qureshi's knockout performance ... Full Review

Peeping Moon: 3/5 | 5.5/10
Huma Qureshi's near-perfect performance as Bihar's CM overshadowed by a weak storyline ... Full Review
