Star Performance

Kangana attracts the audience in each scene when she appears. Manikarnika is definitely one of the best performances of Kangana. She has just lived the queen. Her emotions are fantastic. In action sequences, Kangana excelled well. Thanks to the action choreographer and director Krish for bringing out the best from Kangana. Although the rest of the stars didn’t have much to do, they still satisfy the audiences. Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Danny Dezongpa and Kulbhushan Kharbanda did their best to the character provided.


Although the film is not by a well-set historical filmmaker, it definitely satisfies the audiences. Hats off to your efforts, Kangana! Director Krish had supported her well in the action blocks. Though the people enter the theaters with huge expectation, the narration by Amitabh hypes up the expectations for the film. His fantastic voice over and Kangana’s excellent execution receive appreciation. The songs and the BGM are good. The cinematography is really a breathtaking one. Wow! Excellent work by the cinematographers. They had captured the scenes so naturally and the background colors are vibrant. The second half is a bit lengthy and this is where the film, slightly slips.

What’s There?

  • Kangana’s excellent performance as an actor and a director
  • Action sequences are perfect
  • Cinematography and the music are excellent

What’s Not There?

  • The second half is lengthy


Manikarnika is a patriotic film that has the excellent performance of Kangana. This film will definitely impress everyone and hence, you could go and watch it with your family. Manikarnika – Patriotism Overloaded
