ManiKarnika Film Review in Hindi

मणिकर्णिका- द क़्वीन ऑफ़ झाँसी एक आम लड़की की कहानी है जो अपने समयकाल में आयी एक ऐसी विषम परिस्थिति से दो हाथ करती है। पूरी फिल्म में एक साधारण से लड़की अपने अंदर के योद्धा (वीरता) को कैसे बाहर निकालती है और अपने आप को सशक्त नारी के रूप में देखती हैं, पर बनी है । एक ऐतिहासिक पृष्ठभूमि पर बनी फिल्म मणिकर्णिका की कहानी राजमौली के पिता एवं बाहुबली के लेखक के. वी विजयेंद्र प्रसाद ने लिखी है जो इस फिल्म को और भी खास बनाती है। सन 1857 के विद्रोह की वीरांगना झाँसी की रानी लक्ष्मीबाई के जीवनकाल को चरितार्थ करती यह फिल्म अपने आप में कमाल की है। अपने अभिनय से लोहा मनवा चुकी कंगना एक नए किरदार में नजर आएँगी।
मणिकर्णिका (मनु बाई ) झाँसी की रानी लक्ष्मीबाई के बचपन का नाम है।
