The much awaited Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will hit the screens tomorrow, January 25. The press show of the movie is out and we get you details from the first half. Kangana, the queen is brought up by the Peshwa of Bithur. And eventually becomes the queen of Jhansi. She is then married to Gangadhar Rao (Jisshu Sengupta) and is renamed to Rani Laxmibai. Soon after, she gives birth to a boy. But, her son is killed by a secret conspiracy. Shortly after that, Jisshu Sengupta also dies. Now, as Jhansi is slowly being captured by the British, Kangana takes it in her hand to protect it.
Till now we have seen a good Kangana, a good Jisshu Sengupta and an effective Md. Jeeshan Ayub. We also see Ankita Lokhande in a brief song. And she performs really well. The production value is great while direction is not very impressive.
In the second half, we wait to see Kangana's warrior avatar.
