Telugu cinema is making baby steps in making something out of the box. It did before, but there has been a long gap for many years, and now, it looks like finally, a new generation is ready to present the audience such cinema. Manu is the latest example for that.
Leaving the air of pretentiousness aside and also the slow pace that can be felt with the trailer itself, there is something in Manu that is engaging. It is an overall unique experience, not usually seen. One gets a feeling that so much is revealed and yet nothing is known. The mystery is maintained. If there is a gripping content, it is sure to get the love of its target audience, and encourage others to make more ‘hatke’ films.
Check out the trailer below. Manu is a crowd-funded film. Phanindra Narsetty has directed it. The movie is all set to release on September 7th.
