Glamour, treachery, dancing and fab outfits; Queen’s Destiny of Dance is set in a palace owned by head transvestite Ammu, played by Seema Biswas (of ‘Bandit Queen’ fame). Ammu is a mother figure to a gaggle of gorgeous transvestites, but all hell breaks out when Ammu swtiches her affections from her ageing favourite Mukta, to a new ‘girl’ Nandini, who is not only more beautiful and younger than the Mukta, but also a better dancer!
