Audience Member Manam is easily among the most beautiful films I've watched in my life. The music, screenplay, story, and performances melt your heart from start to end. The film explores the love between the two pairs of protagonists and their children's love to unite their parents. A brilliant mix of socio-fantasy and romantic elements enhanced by a melodic soundtrack make the movie a must-watch for anyone who enjoys drama and love stories. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Ayush T One of the few good films I have watched in this month. I would rate it as one of my favourite films❤️❤️ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Finally got the chance to watch the much appreciated movie. I do accept that its a very unique concept and definitely very subtle and understated for Telugu movie norms. But the ending comes across as half baked and rushed into. Maybe it was because of ANR's health. +ve points: -Nagarjuna's acting. He genuinely acts like a kid in front of Samantha. -Subtle references to various movies. Re-birth concept from ANR's classic Mooga Manasulu. The concept of avoiding the deadly time and hence breaking the cycle reminded me of the Final Destination series. The concept of making parents fall in love is of course, from the Back to future series. -A very complex idea is laid out in a linear way which is very difficult to achieve -The comic timing of ANR senior is unbeatable in the drinking scene. -The way same events and characters are repeated in each life is very nicely done. Even the very small character of Naga Chaitanya's friend who caused the misunderstanding in 1st life re-appears as his GF in his 2nd life. -The translation of "I Love You" in telugu is very cute -ve points: -Too much self reference sometimes appears forced. -The way Samantha and Naga Chaitanya remember their past life appears un-natural -The way Nagarjuna and Shriya's hearts beat when in close proximity is too cheesy and comical -Climax is not convincing enough. It could have been more creative and poetic. My rating: Story - 1 Screenplay - 0.75 - Even though very well laid out, the climax is very forced Acting - 0.75 - Nag dominates, where as other are strictly ok. Other departments - 0.25 - Music is pretty average Overall Package - 0.5. Its a good concept. But what makes it a good movie, are the external factors such as ANR's last movie and the fact that the entire family appears on the screen for the first time. Total - 3.25/5 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
