Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is a landmark film that Kangana Ranaut has been successful in making. Manikarnika is a magnificent and spectacular film on the big screen on the story of the courage and sacrifice of Rani Lakshmibai. Its canvas is grand. As an actress and director Kangana, this film is very successful. The special thing is that they have also been successful in creating the finest visuals, and seeing the film on the big screen produces a sense of patriotism within the audience. But there are some things that make a difference in the film. Like the poetry of Rani Lakshmibai’s Pride Story, ‘Khoob Ladi Mardani Vo To, Jhansi Wali Rani Thi‘, which we all have read, it seems to be just about the definition of the film around it. The film is limited to just that. It has not been made more informative.
The story of the film begins with the voice over of Bollywood’s Shahanshah Amitabh Bachchan. Rani Lakshmibai’s exploitation in the film Manikarnika showing the courage and sacrifice of Rani Lakshmibai has been shown on the big screen. The commendable work has been done about the visuals of the film, which is clearly seen. This movie, filmed with splendor, shows lack of bus research. The person who is aware of Rani Lakshmibai has been brought down with greatness on the film screen. It seems that information could be raised with a little more research. If this were done then the film would be well made. If talked about the screenplay, then more work should have been done on this. Well, this is Kannada’s first film as director and they appear successful in this endeavor.
Another point in the film is that after the first song comes, when the Queen Gwalior reaches the public, the lyrics are broken. The dance that is done is not able to add the viewer. The visuals are definitely spellbinding, but this film does not make the audience their part. But it can definitely be said that Kangna has done this great courage that he took the responsibility of directing along with acting in the film, which is very commendable. This is Kangana’s biggest movie career.
Talking about the performance, Kangana Ranaut has performed the best in the role of Rani Lakshmibai. He has played the role of Rani Lakshmibai. Ankita Lokhande, who played the role of Jhalakari Bai, also acted well and recorded her strong performance in this first film. Suresh Oberoi as Peshba, Kulbhushan Kharbanda as Rajguru, Danny Denzongpa in the role of Gaus Baba, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub and Jisu Sengupta have always influenced the role of Sadashiv as always.
Afterall Manikarnika is a historical film that shows Rani Lakshmibai’s courage, sacrifice and her courage on a big screen. Not a great movie but a gorgeous movie that could definitely be seen.
