PERFORMANCES:

Sharwanand did a tailormade role for him. His character has dual shades where he will be seen as a Playboy during the initial part of the film and becomes emotional towards the end. He performed both shades beautifully. He looked handsome and apt for the role of a Playboy. He came up with energetic and lively performance and showed good expressions and emotions.

Krithi Shetty looked beautiful on the screen and especially in the songs. Though she did a role.beyond her age, she gracefully owned it and delivered with ease. Thrigun and Shiva Kandukuri made their presence felt with their roles. Seerat Kapoor and Ayesha Khan sparkled and livened up with their presence.  Vennela Kishore and Rahul Ramakrishna are adequate in their roles and others like Tanikella Bharani, Sharad khelkar performed accordingly.

ANALYSIS:

Sriram Adittya came up with a regular story where people with two opposite mindsets get together and spend time. The situation he has created for this is adding a kid to the drama. Though the pattern of story is not new, it is the treatment and his writing which made ‘Manamey’ a breezy watch throughout. He tried to bring in freshness with the help of music and few hilarious scenes. He filled the first half with comedy dialogues featuring Sharwanand and rich technical values. 

The same continues in the second half too with entertainment and slowly  turns out to be high on emotions. The pre climax and climax came out well with neatly handled emotions. Though the story turned out to be predictable and Director Sriram Adittya with his brilliant writing made scenes entertaining with hilarious elements, and emotions.

Hesham Abdul Wahab came with soulful music for the film. The songs are melodious and are shot in the backdrop of picturesque locations of London. His background score elevated the scenes in a beautiful manner. The cinematography of Vishnu Sarma, Gnana Sekar showed the beautiful locations in foreign in a lovely way. The editing of Prawin Pudi is ok and but could have been better. The production values by People Media Factory are lavish.

Rating: 3.25 / 5

Bottom-line: Wholesome Musical Emotional Entertainer
