The teaser of period drama 'Manikarnika' is finally out. The brief glimpse of the Kangana Ranaut-starrer, which is based on the life of the warrior queen of Jhansi, looks promising to say the least.
The two-minute clip opens with voice over by megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who narrates the story of Queen Manikarnika's rebellion against the British. Going by the teaser, we may get to hear Big B's baritone in the movie narration too.
Moving on, the teaser boasts of extravagant sets and elaborate costumes, but it is leading lady Kangana Ranaut who is under the spotlight as the fierce fighter.
At one moment she is a doting mother and before you know she is out in the battle field wielding a sword to rip apart the enemy. Kangana's Manikarnika will also transform as the people's queen who leads them in the face of adversity and suppression inflicted by the coloniser East India Company. The leading lady's costumes also from warrior armours to graceful Maharastrian style sarees.
Kangana's prowess at sword-fighting adds to the beauty of the teaser as her acting and stunts look effortless and natural. With impressive visual effects, the teaser promises viewers a magnificent cinema experience.
The period drama also features Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope and Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkarbai.
