Making her debut as a director, Ghattamaneni Manjula, daughter of Superstar Krishna and sister of Superstar Mahesh Babu, directed the film ‘Manasuku Nachindi’. Sandeep Kishan, Amyra Dastur and Tridha Choudhury are playing the lead roles. Manjula’s daughter, Jahnavi, also played a small role in the film. Given the tag that the film is coming from Ghattamaneni family, Superstar Mahesh Babu Fans have already made arrangements to release the film. Let us know whether the film has lived to its expectations or not.
Sooraj (Sandeep Kishan) and Nithya (Amyra Dastur) are cousins, and best buddies too. Their parents perceive the friendship of Sooraj and Nithya as love and fix their marriage. With no other option, both of them elope to Goa. While Sooraj is passionate about photography, Nithya is obsessed with nature. She even starts meditation classes in Goa. Nikita aka Nikki (Tridha Choudhury) also attends these classes.
With time, Sooraj falls in love with Nikki, and even Nikki too accepts his proposal. At this time, Nithya realizes that it is indeed loved she is having towards Sooraj all this while, and just not friendship. She even goes to an extent of breaking Sooraj-Nikki relationship. After she comes to know that, Sooraj is not loving her, she accepts the love proposal from Abhay (Naveen). Both the love couples marriages get fixed.
This is when Sooraj too realizes that he is actually loving Nithya. Did Sooraj confess his love to Nithya? Will they get married? How did Nithya come to know that she is actually loving Sooraj? What about their (Sooraj and Nithya) parents reaction? To know these, watch the movie on the screen.
Sandeep Kishan fared decently in the film. But the actor failed to impress when it came to emotional scenes. On the contrary, Amyra Dastur, who is debuting in Telugu with this movie, gave an exceptional performance in terms of her acting, and screen presence. She was able to bring depth to emotional scenes. Another heroine, Tridha Choudhury did not have much screen space. She did decently well in the limited scope of her character. Manjula’s daughter, Jahnavi is a surprise. With her acting and timing, she impressed the audience.
The movie’s first half falls completely flat. No wonder if the audience complaint that, they found it difficult to sit and watch the movie. The second half is a saviour of the film. Nassar plays the grandfather role of the lead pair. Indeed, his character is the ‘key’ to the entire film. Priyadarshi comedy is just up to the mark.
Ghattamaneni Manjula, who is debuting as the director of the film, came up with the storyline, ‘one will be happy if they do what their heart says’. To this, she adds the importance of nature. The movie revolves around the friendship between two cousins, how it transforms into love, what are the hardships they faced, and how would they finally get together. This is nothing but a run-of-the-mill story, which we had seen repeatedly in Telugu films for the past two decades. The story selection itself is the biggest minus point to the entire film. Ravi Yadhav, with his cinematography, captured the soul of the film through his lens. Music by Raadhan is a big letdown. A couple of songs literally irrigate the audience. The production values from Gemini Kiran are excellent.
