**The Story in short (Without Spoilers) **
Kangana is the daughter of a court advisor who was brought up by Peshwa Nana Saheb (Suresh Oberoi) and Tatya Tope (Atul Kulkarni), Manikarnika (Kangana Ranaut) was an extraordinary fighter even when she was a little girl. However, her legendary journey actually began when she became Laxmibai after her marriage to the King of Jhansi, Raja Gangadhar Rao (Jisshu Sengupta).
Kangana Ranaut – Kangana is the Real Undisputed Queen of Bollywood. She has given her career’s Best or I should say a Legendary Performance in this movie. She roars in every frame. Each and Every second of her’s in the movie will give Goosebumps.
Ankita Lokhande – Ankita, who made her Bollywood debut as Jhalkari Bai in this movie, is flawless with the sword, and to be very frank she exceptionally nailed it. A Couple of Scenes in the 2nd Half totally belongs to her.
– Danny Denzongpa and Atul Kulkarni among others are equally impressive.
**What’s Good **
– Brilliant Background Score.
– War Sequences will Blow Your Mind for sure.
– Perfect Balance of Action + Drama + Emotion and Speechless 2nd Half
– A Strong Supporting Starcast which you’ve never seen before.
– Top-Notch Direction, I mean the way action sequences are choreographed Hats Off to Kangana and co-director Krish.
* What’s Disappointing *
– 1st Half could have been better as it’s been dragged because of unnecessary sequences and songs.
– Performances of the British actors are a little lacking in parts.
**Is it Worth Watching**
She fought a fierce battle against the British. Get inspired by the bravery and valor of Rani Laxmi Bai in Manikarnika and so It’s a Loud and Clear YES..! You should definitely watch this movie in Theatres Only.
