Most of those who had missed watching Manamantha on silver screen in the past have now got an opportunity now.
The film which got rave reviews was telecast for the first time in a television channel recently, but it had already got lakhs of viewers on YouTube channel, within hours of it being posted by the film makers themselves. In four days, over seven lakh people watched the film within four days.
In fact, Manmanthaa, starring Mohanlal and Gautami in lead roles and directed by Chandrasekhar Yeleti who is known for making films of a different genre, generated a lot of enthusiasm even before its release.
It was eagerly awaited as Mohanlal was acting for the first time in a straight Telugu film. After the release, it got very good reviews from critics and received appreciation as the most entertaining family film and also an experimental film. However, the collections at the box office were not in tune with the appreciations.
Unfortunately, those who complain that there were no good movies in the Telugu film industry, do not watch the same when they are actually released.
But, when Manamantha was released by Varahi Pictures on its official YouTube channel, lakhs of people visited it and the number of viewers is growing with every passing day. On the whole, the film was a big hit on line than when it was released in theatres.
Interestingly, super hit film “A..Aa” made by Trivikram Srinivas with Nithin and Samantha in the lead roles was also released officially in the YouTube channel a week ago. But it could not get more than 1.5 lakh viewers, whereas Manamantha was watched by over seven lakh viewers within four days of its release!
