Based on the life of Rani Laxmibai, Manikarnika evoked rave reviews from the audience and critics alike.

Undoubtedly, Kangana nailed it with her impeccable performance as Rani Laxmibai and we can't get over her regal aura.

And, it was Kangana's most ambitious project in her career spanning 13 years.

Besides, Saroj Khan's choreography was said to be one of the best elements of Manikarnika.

'Manikarnika' wins hearts but fails at box office

Given the appreciation from audience, Manikarnika was expected to perform well at the box office.

But contrary to the expectations, it witnessed a dull start since its first show.

According to Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "#Manikarnika picked up towards evening, after an ordinary/dull start in morning... #RepublicDay holiday should witness a big turnaround... Sure, there's appreciation, but it has to convert into footfalls".
