Manikarnika is the movie about Jhansi Laxmi Bai the warrior queen who fought against the British and is quite popular in the south. The story was from Vijayendra Prasad the popular writer who has given the story for Salman called Bajrangi Bhaijan which was a super duper hit.
Even Baahubali was written by Vijayendra Prasad and directed by his son Rajamouli which made tonnes of money at the box office.
Manikarnika was initially directed by Krish Jagarlamudi the popular director who directed NTR biopic. But later Kangana took over it is reported. In the titles both the names of Kangana and Krish are given credits.
Except for Kangana all other characters are just dull and drab. The story is good but it did get the required boost in the movie.
Kangana showed her acting skills and has given a good performance. She was good in action scenes also. Sonu Sood has also done well. The other characters are not worth mentioning. Go for the movie if you are a Kangana fan.
As Krish lost the interest in the movie for NTR, Kangana carried it out till the end and the credit just goes to her performance only.
