Verdict: Though 'Manmadhudu' and 'Manmadhudu 2' movies don't have any connection in terms of story, we can say that the common point between these two films will be the entertainment factor as the entire movie will keep the audience engaged. When compared to the second half, the first half is even more fun-filled. Entertainment, Nagarjuna's performances, Samantha and Keerthy Suresh's surprising special appearances and music can be considered as the major highlights of this film. The story becomes somewhat slow in the second half, which will be a minus point. However, there are no significant flaws in the movie, and we can conclude that 'Manmadhudu 2' is worth watching the film for this weekend.
