Manikarnika Review | Kangana Ranaut’s directorial craft is okay; Ankita Lokhande impresses
"Khoob ladi mardani woh toh Jhansi wali Rani thi", is a part of a famous verse written in regard to the bravery of Rani Lakshmi Bai. But this very essence in the film was missing somewhere. While actress Kangana Ranaut pulled off the lead character very strongly in the action sequences, it was hard to take our eyes off her, other acts make us contradict to our own statement. Read on to find out more about the film!
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi | Overview
Manikarnika or Manu, Lakshmi Bai, Rani of Jhansi -all these are the diminutives of the queen of the princely state of Jhansi in North India currently present in Jhansi district in Uttar Pradesh, India. One of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and became a symbol of resistance to the British Raj for Indian nationalists.
Born in Bithoor, Manikarnika was always known for her strength and bravery. Beginning with Amitabh Bachchan's voice over, Kangana Ranaut sets the pace right in the first 5 minutes with an action-packed scene where she is seen hunting down a tiger, what follows next is a tiresome first half. The second half of the film is surely better than the first half.

Man dies on sets of Shahid Kapoor starrer 'Kabir Singh' in Mussoorie. Read details
A man died on the set of the upcoming film "Kabir Singh", starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, in Mussoorie. The producers of the film have offered support to the family of the deceased crew member. Ram Kumar, 35, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, lost his life in an accident at the five-star hotel where the film's unit is staying. The incident took place before the commencement of the shoot on Thursday.
Kumar was among the local crew and was working with the film unit from Dehradun as a generator operator. He was checking the water level in the generator when his muffler got entangled with the generator's fan and in the process, Kumar too was pulled in. Kumar sustained serious injuries on his head.
He was immediately rushed to a hospital in Dehradun where he was put on a ventilator for a few hours before he passed away. Kumar is survived by three brothers and a sister.
The producers of the film, Cine1 Studios and T Series Films, said in a joint statement: "We are deeply saddened by the loss. We are extending our deepest sympathies to the family of Ram Kumar. We are offering support to the family in the immediate aftermath of this tragic event."
I have cursed Ganesh Acharya, Rakhi Sawant from bottom of my heart: Tanushree Dutta
Tanushree Dutta will not sit quietly until the perpetrators Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya reap that they have sown. The actress created a ruffle in the industry in October last year by starting a #MeToo movement in India. She opened up on the sexual harassment episode that she faced while filming for Horn OK Please. She even slammed Ganesh Acharya for becoming a privy to everything that happened to her on the sets. Tanushree again spoke up against Nana Patekar and Ganesh Acharya in statement.
She said, “Ganesh Acharya, an ungrateful moron who was recommended by me for the horn ok please song and who turned on me just as quickly to help Nana get his way with me on the sets. His name is one of the four accused in my FIR. I wasn’t harassed by just one but four ppl on set when I was only 24 years old and rising in my Bollywood career. This same Ganesh Acharya also went on to spread malicious rumours about me in the press thereafter and ruin my professional reputation. This guy is the brainchild behind all of the smear campaigns that were run on me by Rakhi Sawant where I was accused of all manner of derogatory things.”
