Menon who eventually planned to make her biopic as feature film, eventually reinstated his decision to direct it as a web series, due to restrictions in censor board. Menon also produced the film under Ondraga Digital along with Times Studio Originals.

  • Indrajith Sukumaran, Vamsi Krishna, Lillete Dubey, Tulasi, Sonia Agarwal, Lillete Dubey amongst others appear in prominent roles.
Unknown Factcs, Interesting Facts, Controversies:

Negative Reviews:
  • I am surprised at the high ratings considering we are having excellent content coming in Web series, it's sad with good production values and a great actress like Ramya Krishnan portraying the main role it's a complete let down,bad dubbing pacing and overall direction pathetic, you tend to just get bored with the whole series, a gripping and intense retelling with better lip sync or dubbing could have made this queen good but it's a disappointment. ..makers are the reason for its lack lustre presentation. ...should have made more efforts in the making considering the excellent PR the series is getting


Positive Review:
  • The best Web series created ever in Tamil till date. Unbelievable, it was close to reality not only the direction and the story but also the art works department and others get credit for this masterpiece. This web series denotes that Kollywood is ready for ON demand content transition.
  • This is one of the best example that emphasizes - "The personality and attitude of actors matter more than the look-alike appearance in a biopic film". Director Gautam Menon has pulled off a fantastic biopic that tells the story of a female actress turned politician in a male dominated environment. The uniqueness of the plot lies in portrayal of characters in a grey shade rather than as demi-god, seen usually in biopics. Ramya Krishnan fits the role as a 'T' supported by Anjana and Anikha playing the lead in younger ages. One of the best biopics I have seen after Thackeray. Must watch!!
  • Women with struggled past and overruled all the people and become CM. Awesome way of making the History and you are inside the scenes most of the times. The way the dialogue deliveries are made you feel like you have to do something better in life. Salute Team and GVM Ramya Anika Anjana...
  • I am awe of all the three artists who have played Jaya Lalita in the show. The story is told very well and paced adequate. Only the political carrier of Jaya Lalitha is not shown in much detail. As a viewer we would want a few more episodes to cover that aspect too.
About Season 1, Season 2, Season 3:
  • This first season has eleven episodes which depicts the life and evolution of Shakthi Sheshadri. This starts from the childhood days of her and the reason behind her entry into the cinema industry, The way she learned everything in the cinema, The relationship between Shakthi and GMR and finally her political entry.
  • The first season of Queen which conists of 11 episodes, was released through the streaming service MX Player on 14 December 2019.
  • The series eventually received positive reviews praising Ramya Krishnan's performance, among other cast members and also the major technical aspects of production.
  • Apart from its digital premiere, the series also broadcast through Zee Tamil in July 2020.
  • Queen won the award for Best Series at the Singapore Asian Academy Creative Awards in December 2020. In April 2020, Menon announced that the series was renewed for a second season.
