It has broken the record for the highest amount of advance bookings for a Telugu film.
The Akkineni family-starrer found widespread support and appreciation from the film fraternity as well. Here is Tollywood Celebs Comments on Manam Movie.
“#Manam is a well written, well performed, well photographed, well directed film with good music.A fitting farewell by the Akkineni family to the legendary ANR. My whole hearted appreciation to the director, Vikram for making a complicated story seem simple. The film warms ur heart Makes you laugh, brings out a tear or two and makes you long for more. all the actors performed their heart out. Really lovd Nagarjunagaru’s Subtle performance and chaithu’s matured performance. What can I say about Nageswararao garu!!only one thing.. #ANRliveson “- S S Rajamouli
“Just Saw Manam. ..If it was made in Bollywood it wud hav straight gone for 100 crores..its an avant garde product but deeply rooted in earth. 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. 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. 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” – RGV
