Biopic Based On Queen Naiki Devi
From 1175, Queen Naiki Devi (IAST: Nyik Dev) was the regent queen of the Chaulukya dynasty (Solanki Rajputs) during the infancy of her son Mularaja II. She was probably born into the Chandela ruler Paramardi’s family. She was married to Ajayapala, the Chaulukya King.
Queen Naiki Devi led the Rajput Confederation to victory at the Battle of Kasahrada in 1178, defeating Muhammad Ghori at Garraghaa pass. After being defeated in combat, Muhammad Ghori was forced to flee through the desert to Afghanistan.
Her early life is unknown, although she was the daughter of a Paramardi, according to Prabandhachintamani of Merutunga. This Paramardin was previously mistakenly identified as Kadamba king Permadideva, but respected historian Ashoke Kumar Majumdar believes she was the daughter of Chandela monarch Paramardi (reigned c. 1165-1203 CE).
She was married to the Chaulukya ruler Ajayapala and had a son named Mularaja, who succeeded his father as king following his death. In 1175, when her son succeeded his father as king, she became regent during her son’s minority.
Naiki devi was the queen regent of the Chaulukya empire during her son’s infancy, and it was at this period that Muhammad Ghori invaded India over the Thar Desert in 1178 A.D.
According to chronicler Merutunga, Naiki devi marched with her son Mularaja in her lap at the head of the Chaulukya army and destroyed the Ghurid soldiers at Gharraghaa pass, earning her son the title of “vanquisher of the king of Ghazni.” The battle took place in a village called Kayandra near the Abu Hills’ slopes.

Nitin Gawde directed the Gujarati historical drama film Nayika Devi. Because this picture was not done on a large budget, I was concerned that the production quality would be poor, but I was proven wrong.
The graphics, set designs, art director’s work, makeup, and clothing all contributed to the film’s overall aesthetic. In every way, this film is outstanding.
Despite the film’s low budget, most of the scenes or set designs appear to be from a Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed film.
Some graphics were used in the climactic action sequences that were not particularly remarkable, although this isn’t a major flaw.
Khushi Shah Ji has done an excellent job in the character of Nayika Devi, whether it was with her beauty, her energy, or her inventiveness; in general, she has tried her hardest to give her all.
When her husband dies and Naiyka Devi wakes up and refuses to allow her kingdom to dissolve in any case, this scene becomes memorable, even though it is still playing in my memory.
In his role as Muhammad Gori, Chunky Pandey looks fantastic. In each of his emotions, Chunky Pandey captures Muhammad Gori’s ruthlessness, but the film fails to depict Muhammad Gori’s horrors.
When Muhammad Gori stormed India, how did he go about committing atrocities, robbing, and destroying temples? All of this should have been stated in the plot, and the film’s impact would have risen much higher.
The rest of the cast has likewise given their all to their roles.
So the picture gets full grades for overall actor performances, direction, art director work, set designs, makeup, and costumes in these areas.
