Manikarnika Review

The film begins with the voice of Amithab Bachan explaining the situation in India before British rulers entry. After that story shifts to Manikarnika, In the first Half, how Manikarnika born and brought up and her courageous bravery was shown, after marriage how the life of Queen Jhansi begins is shown. Original story begins in the second half. Apart from the familiar story of the Jhansi family, the crucial events of the 1800s, including the Meerut sepoy revolt, were made in the story by directors Krish Jagarlamudi and Kangana Ranaut. Visual effects are perfect. The cinematography is good will take the viewer during that period. Songs are average but back ground music is good. Production values are excellent.

Manikarnika lived the role of Jhansi, she has shown her acting skills in an extraordinary way. There is no doubt this film is a big milestone in Kangana Ranaut carrier. Other actors also performed well. Kulbushan Karbanda as the chief advisor of Jhansi, Jishu Sengupta as Maharaja Gangadhar Rao, Atul Kulkarni as Manikarna's ally Tatya Tope, Suresh Oberoi as Peshwa Baji Rao II, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub as Raja Gangadhar Rao's cousin Sadashiv, Ankita Lokhande and Prajakta Mali as Jhalkari Bai and Kashi Bai citizens of Jhansi. War scenes are excellently choreographed.
