A great historical start for kangana ranaut...
25 January 2019 | by melvinsolomonSee all my reviews

Manikarnika is an extraordinary historical film with great dialogue deliveries as well as with super action scenes..their is nothing to say about Kangana she is perfect in what she does... the Vfx was good...the songs in this movie are of great feelings..but this movie lack in Bgm's and the graphics was not upto the mark in some important sections of the scenes..anyway this movie is an excellent work....important scenes from the trailer was also depicted towards the last were great... Don't hesitate to watch this film...the movie is worth for your money...
