Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika, one of the much-anticipated films of the year, has witnessed a decent opening on the first day of its theatrical release. However, the film has marked to be the fifth highest opener among the female-driven films.

Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the first day collections of the film. “#Manikarnika picked up towards
evening, after an ordinary/dull start in morning… #RepublicDay holiday [today]
should witness a big turnaround… Sure, there’s appreciation, but it has to
convert into footfalls… Fri ₹ 8.75 cr. India biz,” he wrote.

Earlier, reviewing the historical drama, Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “Inspiring movie that has scale and soul… Kangana, take a bow. You’re terrific… First half could be tighter. Second half awe inspiring… Climax brilliant… Power, pride, patriotism – this has it all.”

Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is a film that captures the life story of Rani Laxmibai. Directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and Kangana Ranaut, the film also stars Danny Denzongpa, Ankita Lokhande, and Atul Kulkarni, Suresh Oberoi and Jisshu Sengupta in key roles.

Produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain and Nishant Pitti, the movie will release on January 25.
