Akkineni Nagarjuna latest movie Manmadhudu 2 is released, Nagarjuna played a middle-aged bachelor who prefers one night stands than marriage. Let’s move into the details.
Sam alias Sambasiva Rao ( Nagarjuna ) is a Casanova who lives in Portugal along with his PA Kishore ( Vennela Kishore). His family pushes him to get married as he already past his marriage age. To get away from marriage proposal, he requests and contracts Ms Avantika a waitress ( Rakul Preet) to pretend as his lover for two weeks and rest situations is the main plot.
The Manmadhudu-2 story is completely different from “Manmadhudu.” The story has the backdrop of a city called ‘Cassandra’ located in Portugal. This film’s storyline look’s like 90’s movies which are outdated. Vennela Kishore’s comedy is the only saviour of the film which worked in the first half. The movie rides on Vennela Kishore and he gets more screentime than the Hero. Hero Sam, Heroine Avantika roles have been written with no real strength to their characterizations. Looks-wise Nagarjuna is very good in this film. Rakul Preet Singh looked good. The double meaning dialogues are too much to take and will be an uneasy to watch with family. Vennela Kishore as Kishore is hilarious for the majority part of the film. Rao Ramesh excels as an uncle of Sam. Manmadhudu is an iconic movie to watch even today with Trivikram’s trademark punch dialogues and the timing. Manmadhudu-2 fails big in that aspect, especially in the second half.
Vennela Kishore Comedy
Story with no nativity
Verdict: A Bad Sequel
Manmadhudu-2 is an attempt to make a new generation adult comedy film. Nagarjuna chose a bad story that is not up to his stature.
