Akkineni family starrer Manam is showing the power of word of mouth. The film is doing phenomenally well in US in tune with its reviews and talk. The day by day growth in box office numbers from the premiere is a testimony to this fact.

Manam has already crossed the half million mark by the end of its two days run at the US box office. It is now all set to cross the Million dollar mark in US by the end of the week if it keeps up the pace going forward. With an additional holiday to boost collections on Monday one has to wait and see how much the collections would be at the end of extended weekend and how much more it needs to do to touch the Million mark. Manam is therefore going to become the first Akkineni film to reach this milestone as when it achieves it.
