Story of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi:
The film shows from the birth of Lakshmi Bai to her growing up and the story of fighting against the British for the freedom of Jhansi. As a lady with her bravery and fighting skills against the British is really a courageous step at that time when Kings of several kingdoms got afraid to fight against the British. Riding on the back of a horse with its lagaam in one hand and a swinging sword in other, an infant tied to her chest and fire sparkling in her red eyes- the valor of Jhansi ki Rani Lakshmi Bai is unforgotten”. This film speaks about the legend of Queen Lakshmi Bai, who fought for the throne by igniting an inferno through the “Indian rebellion of 1857” against the British Raj. Kangana Ranaut, who is herself the queen of Bollywood, paints the picture of that fierce warrior by portraying the utmost sense of chivalry rushing in her blood. The movie will give you goosebumps as Kangana has not come undone this time! The remembrance of history lessons and the breathtaking power-packed scenes makes this one special. As the Uri: The Surgical Strike was running successful and that is related to the incident of a few years ago, so it took the heart of the audience. Though it has historical fame it did not get that much love.
