Manmadhudu 2, starring king Nagarjuna in the lead role hit the big screens today. Nag announced that this film is not a sequel of the original film, Manmadhudu, but an official remake of a French film.
The trailer and teasers of the film portrayed Nag in a stylish avatar and give a sense that he is playing the role of a playboy. Let us see whether the film lives up to all the hype around it.
Sam(Nagarjuna) is a perfume maker who resides in Portugal. He has an irresistible attraction towards the woman. But he rejects multiple efforts from his family members, who try to get him married.
Sam crosses paths with Avantika, thanks to Samantha. The duo are now involved in a family crisis and have to come out of it. How do they tackle these challenges? How does this journey change their lives? The answers to these questions form the remaining plot of the film.
Nagarjuna looks really handsome on the screen. He is a real charmer. His screen presence is just too good, and he plays his role to perfection. His on-screen antics might appeal to his fans and followers.
Rakul Preet Singh gets a unique role. She emotes well in certain episodes. Her chemistry with Nagarjuna is decent enough.
Vennela Kishore gets a meaty role. His hilarious comedy sequences in the first half keep the audience on the edge of their seats. He partly succeeds in the second half.
The rest of the star cast are apt in their roles. They bring a good vibe to the film as a whole.
The director Rahul Ravindran picks a new-age script and writes it in his own style. The narrative is striking in the first half with a number of unexpected adult comedy blocks taking centre stage.
Music is decent enough. The background score is appealing. The production values are really good for this light-hearted entertainer. Many frames in the film look exquisite, thanks to some very impressive work from the men behind the camera.
Manmadhudu 2 is partly engaging romantic entertainer that has a good first half. Things go slightly off track in the second half, and this is when the narrative gets uneven. The climax is good, and it has a very good message as well. The comedy sequences in the first half will be the saving grace.
