Story: Indu (Kajal Aggarwal) lands in a trouble back in her village. She comes across Kalyan (Kalyan Ram) in her life and how Kalyan influenced Indu's life and brought her out of the problem is the film's story.
Performances: The performances from the lead actors are good and decent. Kalyan Ram impressed in the role he played. Kalyan Ram's makeover is also impressive. Kajal Agarwal is fine in the film and impressed with her looks as well as performance. Prudhvi Raj, the Comic artist entertained one and all with his decent performance.
He evoked laughs in the theatres with his comedy timing. Ravi Kishan is okay in his character. All the other actors are impressive too
Technical Aspects: Upendra Madhav has come up with a decent technical output for the film. The cinematography by Prasad Murella is so good. The editing by Thammi Raju is nice and decent.
The music scored by Mani Sharma is nice and his background score has come out well too. The art work is attractive. The production values are grand.
Verdict: Manchi Lakshanalu Unna Abbayi is one movie that we might have watched multiple times with the story having different backdrop and actors playing different characters. All the top heroes did a film like this at some point if their careers and it is the time for Kalyan Ram to come up with a movie of such a kind now.
Kalyan Ram did his job pretty well and excelled in this mass commercial movie. Though the characters are strong, the old age formulaic format could not impress the audiences. The movie has a proper story and the Screenplay is a big let down. The pathetic narration and unwanted scenes will test the patience. On the whole, the movie can be a passable flick at the box office.
