- Vennela Kishore comedy
- Double Meaning Comedy
- Adult Content
Performance: Nagarjuna does complete justice to his character but his characterization doesn’t appeal to his age. His screen presence and performance are highlighted. Rakul Preet Singh does a challenging role and she has given fantastic performance. Vennela Kishore’ comedy is the major assets. Samantha Akkineni and Keerthy Suresh’s roles have been written with no real strength to their characterizations . Brahmanandam is also seen in few scenes. Nassar, Rao Ramesh, Lakshmi, Jhansi, Devadarshini and Nishanthi make their presence felt.
Technical: Rahul Ravindran has a solid script on hands. But he tried to make it a commercially viable one which has diluted it to an extent. Adult jokes and double meaning dialogues are the biggest weaknesses of the film. There are far too many ups and downs in the screenplay that it fails to sustain the interest levels. The couple of songs in Manmadhudu 2 are good. Background score is fine. Cinematography is impressive, but the editing goes haywire. There is a lot of trimming to be done. The Production values are very good.
Analysis: Manmadhudu 2 closes with a good message on the importance of the mother and family.
