Manam

My Review:- 3.5/5



Genre: Comedy - Drama

Theatre watched : Cinemax Screen 3

Censor Rating : "U/A" 

Run time : 163 Min

Pre release Expectations :
"Manam" is the most hyped movie so far among the movies of Akkineni clan and it has its reasons,the primary being legendary ANR's last screen presence...Stars of three generations in a movie which is very rare...Different story and a very interesting trailer...Vikram kumar is the director and Anup composed tunes for this flick...Let's see whether this movie hits the bulls eye and would be remembered as a classic or not...???

Did it reach the expectations ???

My Review :- 
If we just keep aside the fact that this movie is ANR's last for a moment,"Manam" just brought out the brilliance of Vikram kumar...Its a perfect tribute to the legend ANR...Well made film with good screenplay and emotions...!!!

Highlights:-
Starting of with Vikram Kumar,the Director.He did a fantabulous job.Its a very well conceived story with novel concept.It isn't very easy to handle these type of scripts which involve lot of complexity but he made it look so simple and elegant.
Performances wise Nagarjuna is at his best.He did a superb job in both the roles.
Naga chaitanya improved a lot as an actor and is visible in this film.
ANR's screen presence just showcases why he is a legend.
Music and back ground score of this film can be treated as Anup Ruben's career's best.It is apt.
Samantha is good and fitted into her role.
Shreya who is looking for a come back utilized this occasion so well.She did a very good job in second half.
Dialogues by Harshavardhan are simple and yet had a lot of depth.
Camera work by Vinod needs a special mention especially for the work in second half.
Emotions carried well.
Screenplay is brilliant.
Sapthagiri is just ok.
Akhil's entry is dynamic.   
  
Disappointments:- 
Run time is high.
Felt dragged at times.
Naga chaitanya recollecting the past is not that convincing.
B and C centre audiences may find it hard to connect.

Engaging moments:-.   
Akhil's entry is well shot.His looks are so promising.
Amitabh did a cameo.
