Kangana Ranaut’s magnum opus ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’s trailer has been released. Having watched the 3.5 minutes long video of Manikarnika, cine-lovers have been ga-ga over it.
The much awaited trailer reveals that the 31-year-old actor Kangana, who essays the titular role in the film, is undoubtedly brilliant as the feisty Rani Laxmi Bai.
The video opens with an introduction to the story line of ‘Manikarnika’, Rani Laxmi Bai’s biopic—in the absence of an emperor, Jhansi appears to be in a great peril with the East India Company attempting to seize Jhansi.
The trailer then offers a glimpse of Kangana as the fierce lady Manikarnika, who soon wins over the entire Jhansi with her warmth, unbeatable skill as a warrior and ideologies.
At the beginning of the trailer Manikarnika spells, “Kanyay kaise kalaiyaan ghumate hai, main dikhati hun”, as she was challenging a group of sword fighters.
The intriguing trailer of ‘Manikarnika’ also has glimpses Manikarnika’s wedding with the Maharaja of Jhansi, Raja Gangadhar Rao Newalkar, the character which essayed by renowned Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta and her naming ritual followed by that. Manikarnika was named as prestigious title of ‘Laxmi Bai’, the queen of Jhansi by her husband Gangadhar Rao.
After a few scenes the story took an interesting turn as the trailer shows Rani Laxmi Bai’s heart-wrenching transformation from a fierce lady to a queen, a mother, a young widow to the warrior queen, who is determined to serve the people of Jhansi with every drop of her blood and sweat.
This is also worth to mention that the trailer of ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ reveals some of stunning war sequence between Rani Laxmi Bai and the East India Company from the film.
Manikarnika features an ensemble cast of character actors, who play important historical figures in the film and we also got to see a glimpse of those other pivotal characters in the trailer— Jisshu Sengupta, Ankita Lokhande, Danny Denzongpa, Suresh Oberoi and Kulbhushan Kharbanda.
The trailer ends with a solid dialogue by Kangana, addressing the British ruler, “We both want Jhansi. The difference is, you want to rule it and I want to serve our people.”
Hours before the trailer release, the makers of ‘Manikarnika’ revealed a poster of Kangana as Rani Laxmi Bai, who is sitting regally on the throne of Jhansi with her baby boy on her lap.
