manamMovie : Manam Cast : ANR,Nagarjuna,Naga Chaitanya,Shriya,Samantha,Amitabh Bachchan (Guest Role),Lavanya Tripati Music : Anup Rubens Director : Vikram.K.Kumar Producer : Akkineni Family Banner : Annapurna Studios in association with Reliance Entertainment Release Date : 23rd May,2014 ANR’s last film Manam has hit the screens officially with the premiers. Filmytime gets exclusive review from the premiers. The movie is directed by Vikram Kumar of “Ishq” fame. Anoop rubens gave the music for the film while the entire “Akkineni Family” remained the main cast. Sreya and Samantha shined in female leads while “Akkineni Family” produced this film. To know whether Manam remained an excellent tribute to late ANR, read the review below. Story: This would be the most difficult story reviewed by filmytime. So please spare with us. The movie begins with Naga chaitanya and Samantha introduced as couples and Nagarjuna as their son. Nagarjuna loses his parents in an accident. But coincidentally he comes across them after many years. How he enjoys being with his younger parents forms the entire first half. How ANR is related to Nagarjuna forms the twist of the tale. Sreya pairs up Nagarjuna in the second half. Whether the story has a happy ending or not has to be watched on the screen. PS: We decided not to reveal the complete story and kill the suspense. Performances: Naga Chaitanya improved a lot in the film. Nagarjuna remained the heart of the film making the film revolving around him. Samantha and Sreya both had got characters which had good scope to perform and both of them excelled. ANR is at his best. His pure smile steals the show in the entire second half. Ali, Nellore Giri, MS Narayana and Brahmanandam did justice to the small roles offered to them. Positives:
  • Akkineni Family acting at their best
  • Samantha
  • Background score,Music
  • Direction – The best
  • Screenplay
  • Songs picturization
  • Few dragging scenes in both the halves
Verdict : This would be probably the best movie of Nag’s and Naga Chaitanya’s career. The best tribute to ANR. The best introduction film for Akhil. And last but not least, the best film of the year so far. The film has excellent potential in the A centres and filmytime expects the film to do good business even in B and C centres because even they have hearts. ANR lives on. Punch Line : Manam – Manam Andaram Chuddam ..!! Rating: 4/5
