Nagarjuna is very happy with the way his latest film ‘Manam’ is receiving appreciations for its magnificent subject. One of the celebrities who watched the film and showered praises on ‘Manam’, was Ram Gopal Varma. “Manam is the first constructive demonstration that Tollywood actually can go into a new age of cinema thus breaking done to death shackles. There was a standing ovation at the end in the theatre I saw Manam which I doubt ever happens for a telugu film,” RGV wrote.
Ram Gopal Varma was so deeply impressed by Naga Chaitanya’s performance in the film that he felt the young actor’s portrayal was tremendous. He mentioned, “I feared Chaitanya would feel overawed in sharing the same screen space with Nag but he was terrific.. In fact in Manam, Chaitanya was way far better than how Nag was in his first screen sharing experience with ANR.”
RGV’s series of tweets also showed appreciation on ANR, Nag, director Vikram Kumar. “Both Nag and Vikram deserve multiple salutes for making a film like Manam happen. Nag and Chaitanya's onscreen chemistry is the best I ever saw between two actors. The only tragedy of Manam is that ANR is not alive to see this astounding celebration of human emotions. From the time ANR brought the industry to Hderabad to Nag taking it further on to a new age cinema...that's what I call a great journey,"
