After a long wait, the trailer of Kangana Ranaut’s much-awaited Manikarnika is out. The film is slated to release next year and has already set the stage on fire with its trailer showcasing Kangana Ranaut in the lead role of Manikarnika popularly known as Rani Laxmi Bai.
The 2 minutes stretched trailer showcases the growth of Manikarnika from the girl to the revolutionary and freedom fighter Rani Laxmibai who is still reminisced as an epitome of valour and power. The trailer highlights Rani Laxmibai’s contribution to the fight of freedom and how she fought in the first fight of independence in 1857. The film got into a controversy when Kangana Ranaut took the directorial rights after Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi. Further, Sonu Sood who was in a pivotal role in the film also left it.
This is the first time we will get to see Kangana Ranaut in such a role, she is enigmatic, fierce, and showcases fantastic action sequences that are going to leave you awe-struck when the film will hit the 70mm screen. However, there seems to be a lack of intensity while delivering dialogues. She looks great but at the same time, we could only spot the expression of anger and rage constant on her face. We still have to wait for the film to release before commenting further.
For the lover of television actress Anikta Lokhnade, she will be seen sharing the screen space with Kangana Ranaut. Ankita Lokhande will be essaying the role of Jhlakari Bai who was an important part of Rani Laxmibai’s army. She sacrificed her life to save the life of the queen. This film also marks the debut of Ankita Lokhande in Bollywood.
Another key highlight of the film is that the action sequences are choreographed by Nick Powell, stunt director from Hollywood.
The film is magnanimous in various sense, it will bring forth the fight of freedom, it will also be releasing on Republic Day. This is the first time we will see Kangana Ranaut in a historical character and more than anything, it will highlight glorious India.
