Anupama Chopra's Movie Review of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi | Kangana Ranaut


How do you convert myth into movie? Manikarnika or the Rani of Jhansi is the stuff of legend. The warrior queen led an army against the British Empire. In 1858, she died on the battlefield at the age of 29. The first requirement to translate this to screen is to get an actor who can convince us of this incredible courage. And on that count, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi gets it absolutely right – Kangana Ranaut is on fire as the iconic Rani Lakshmibai. Her spine is erect, her eyes are unblinking and she seems propelled by some other-worldly power. She’s riding horses, wielding swords, leaping on elephants and making it all look plausible. When she looks into camera and insists on dying for the country, you want to follow her into battle.

  1. Oh so karan’s Gunjan Saxena movie will be a real story as per you .. if this was a myth for u ! People like you and Rajeev masand and have made us lose our faith from humans like you bcz I don’t even call u a responsible journalist bcz u guys are sold for movie mafias

  2. No problem.. we are there for Kangana like we are there for Sushant ! We won’t let u people misguide us again

  3. most hopeless, unauthentic review. How dare she call Rani Laxmibai a myth? Biased review.

  4. I am so sorry 😞 but the minute u said myth into movie. Feels so sorry for you and such people of our country who call our history as myth

  5. The morons in this comment section can't grasp how simplistic and superficial this movie is. It has nothing to do with history. It's just designed to be jingoistic and arouse patriotic feelings, and to make Laxmibai look like a superhero, which she wasn't.

  6. देश के गद्दारों को क्यों नहीं दिखाया । केवल पैसा कमाये,डर के कारण लोगों को सच्चाई
    न बताये ।

  7. Its a shame how you bring your personal grudge against Kangana in your reviews as well. As a critic, be unbiased please. That's the least you can do. And we all know you and almost everyone from Karan Johar/Aditya Chopra gang are against kangana, but atleast respect the powerhouse of talent that she is. This woman needs to be seen in more films and you all should be grateful to Kangana for bringing setting the benchmark for good acting for Bollywood heroines.

  8. Ab tm jaise hutiye reviewer ki koi serious ni leta.. Nepo Kid k chatne wale.. Kangana rocks.. Nepotism shock
