Trivia

This film comprises of remix of a classic song of Akkineni Nageswara Rao, "Nenu Puttanu" from the film Prem Nagar. However, due to untimely demise of ANR before the song is shot, the clips from the original were used in the background of this song, thus making it appeal as a tribute to the original. See more »

There are movies and then there is Manam
27 September 2014 | by saurav201194See all my reviews

An absolutely spellbounding movie which will leave you speechless after watching it... there are movies which are beyond the questions of logics and reasonings and manam belongs to this category... a movie beyond skeptical questionings and rational explanations.. a cinematic experience you have never ever experienced before.. and the music, yes the music just takes the movie few notches higher.. perfectly tailor made for the movie and absolutely irreplaceable, if people are considering remakes... a background score (in every single scene!!!) you can't resist soaking yourself in.. truly, the pitch perfect music (both songs and bgm) is the soul, the essence of the movie..

A brilliant plot.. very very fresh and creative and an absolute fantastic direction to present such a complicating plot in such a simple,sweet and smooth way.. Nagarjuna is top notch.. For me its one of his best performance.. a very sincere effort.. he creates magic in each of his scene.. you are mesmerized every time he is on screen.. great performance..nagarjuna owned the movie.. he rocks!! ANR, though having a less screen time, is a treat to watch.. splendid performance by the veteran.. Shriya too shines in her limited screen time.. shines and shines brighty.. the rest of the cast plays their part fairly well.. The movie itself is a magic, growing up on you and the lasting there in your mind forever.. just when you have a thought that this astounding fest is about to suddenly experience a dip and hit rock bottom and post 15 mins you realize that you experienced the greatest high of the movie. this is the MANAM magic.. trust me.. A movie for all.. Must must must must watch and experience manam..
