Manikarnika - Kangana does a Manoj Kumar

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

“Bundele harbolo ke muh humney suni kahaani thi, Khoob ladi mardani woh to Jhansi wali rani thi”

As u can infer from my remembering my ICSE Hindi poem, I just saw Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi starring Rangana Herath ( a running joke between my son and I where we interchange the Sri Lankan bowler with Kangana Ranaut in the opposite context). It’s her show all the way (she is even credited with direction) and is pretty much what you expect from a movie on Republic Day - patriotic fervor, chants of Har Har Mahadev, and a guaranteed tax free status in Maharashtra for showing statue of CSM (twice). The first 45 mins are slow as they build her background and have 4 songs. Approaching interval things pick up steam and then the second half sustains the action.

Will leave u with a couple of points to ponder about Hindi cinema 1)Why do the Brits talk to each other in Hindi? 2)What will happen to voice-overs after Amitabh Bachchan passes away?
