ANR: We all know about the capabilities of ANR as an actor and there is nothing special to mention about the legend.
Nagarjuna: Nagarjuna has done complete justice to the role of bittu aka nageshwar rao. This role fits in to the list of his best performances. He is the best thing worked for film after the director.
Naga chaitanya doesn’t have much scope performance wise, but he was good in one crucial scene at the climax and in comedy scenes . Samantha does her performance effortlessly ,especially she was too good in the 2nd half after a twist. . Shriya was also impressive. Saptagiri, MS Narayana provided some comedy. Posani, brahmi and all others in supporting roles were fine.
Story is were innovative and at the same time very complicated one, but Vikram kumar was successful in narrating it in a very convincing manner without any confusion . He took care of each and every minute details of links between the flashback and present scenes . Though the story is different one there is ample scope for entertainment , and all the fun moments are situational without deviating from the story. Screenplay is just perfect through out the film without any dull moments ,pre climax episode could have been better but climax is satisfactory.
Dialogues are very good. Camera work by P S Vinod is just excellent . Music by anup rubens is another plus point for the film, all songs are too good and “Kani Penchina” song stands out, Background score was exceptional.Art and Editing were too good.
Innovative story, Arresting Screenplay, Nagarjuna’s performance make Manam an Awesome Entertainer.
