Rating: 3.5 out of 5
The childhood name of the Queen of Jhansi was named as Manikarnika, so there is no coincidence that Kangana was called as Manu in her new movie which gives a little clue that she was nicknamed as Manu based on one of her hit movie Tanu weds Manu, where Kangana found such success as Tanu.
This film was completed and directed by actress Kangana after the war with industry bigwigs and taken over directorial duties in the middle which makes us believe that “This queen need no man”.
Performance especially for Kangana in this movie is exceptional. Costumes, score, cinematography, and dialogues everything worked well in this movie.
Kangana attracts everyone’s attention in every role and grows strength by strength as the film moves ahead. Kangana effortlessly brings Manikarnika alive. This is one of her best performances in Bollywood.
The narration of the film directed by Kangana Ranaut and Krish, showing the true life story of “The Queen of Jhansi” memorizing important events from 1800’s. The main focus of this movie was on the Jhansi’s rebellion against the British.
The film succeeded in stocking the patriotic feeling within the audience without being too overpowering.
Overall Manikarnika is well made film that highlights Kangana’s competency as an actor. She made all of us remind of the story of a mother, daughter, wife, mother, Queen, & freedom fighter.
In short this movie is more than enough to keep you all engaged in pages of Indian history.
