Grandiosity: The level of grandeur decides the interest level for a film. PADMAAVAT had left no chances to boast the presence of the film, and now MANIKARNIKA too is in the race as coincidentally the film is releasing on the day PADMAAVAT had released the last year i.e. on 25th January. Deepika Padukone slayed as the fearless queen royally at the box office, and now Kangana is all set to blast the box office with her fierce and power.
Movie set and period depiction: Replicating the palaces, forts and war zones is the main focus point to make the film even more appealing to the eyes. Sanjay Leela Bhansali had placed a royal vision exactly like a dream to us and depicted the history perfectly, however, it landed up in a heck of controversies but still proved a hit. MANIKARNIKA too appeared appealing in the teaser and hopefully it may attract the audience.
Costume: Presenting the Indian historic era on the screen is not an easy task. bringing back the prehistoric attires for the characters adds more interest in the film. Apart from looks, Kangana's costumes promise more authenticity to the period and help paint the fierce of warrior queen. Not just the lead, but the other characters too have donned gracious costumes to glorify their looks. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh too were praised for their heavy costumes embroidered with gems and jaw drop designs.
Looks: Kangana Ranaut outshines in the royal Jhansi queen avatar as her looks had left everyone stunned the moment they had surfaced on the internet. Kangana who also rules Bollywood as a queen proves a tough competition to Deepika Padukone's grand look in PADMAAVAT. Deepika's unibrow was the centre of attraction while Kangana carries the spark of strength and a mother in her eyes. Though both actress' shade a different epic but the race for the charisma has always been on the lines.
