Abhiram (Nagarjuna) is a manager in his own ad agency. He hates women and he feels that all women are traitors. Abhiram's uncle (Tanikella Bharani), who is the chairman of the ad agency, appoints Harika (Sonali Bendre) as an assistant manager. Though Abhiram does not like a girl joining his company, he has to live with it as the appointment is made by his uncle (Tanikella Bharani). He starts mistreating her. Harika, vexed by Abhiram's acts, submits her resignation to Abhi's uncle, who then narrates the flashback of Abhiram to Harika.

Abhi is born with a golden spoon. Abhi is raised by his grandfather (Balayya) as his parents die soon after the birth of Abhi. Abhi falls in love with Maheswari (Anshu), who is the niece of an employee (Chandra Mohan) in Abhi's grandfather's company. Alarmed by this, Chandra Mohan takes her away to his home town and arranges pelli choopulu with another guy. Abhi travels all the way to the venue and takes Maheswari away. While traveling back, they met with an accident. After 10 days, when Abhi comes out of coma, he is told that Maheswari is about to marry some other guy. Shocked by this news, Abhi develops hatred towards women. After narrating the flashback, Abhi's uncle promotes Harika to Manager position and demotes Abhi to Assistant Manager position. The rest of the story is all about how Abhi falls in love with Harika.

Artists Perfomance
Nagarjuna is extremely gorgeous in this film. He looks very elegant in those business outfits. He looks strikingly attractive and youthful in the flashback episode. The costumes for the flashback episode for Nagarjuna are of two types. One type is the khaadi/silk kind of modern shirts on jeans. The other type is the ones he used to wear for films like Shiva. Nagarjuna has gone a step ahead in terms of handling comedy scenes. His body language, gestures, mannerisms are very well utilized to generate comedy. Nagarjuna single-handedly generated comedy in first half. Brahmanandam and Sunil come in second half for a few scenes. He did extremely well in a couple of pathos scenes as well. This charmer of Charminar mesmerizes you with his enchanting presence on the screen.

Sonali Bendre is pretty good and she is a perfect match for Nagarjuna in terms of screen presence. She exhibited her ease in doing the role of a working woman. Her histrionics are just perfect. Sunitha's dubbing suited her. The London based NRI girl looks OK. But director's tender characterization for her role takes her performance to new heights. There is innocence in her character and she suited well to that role. The voice dubbed for her role is very much similar to that of Laya's voice and its very apt.

Tanikella Bharani has got an excellent character of a supporting uncle in this film. He exhibited a fine balance in voice modulation and emotions. Brahmanandam did a cameo role of 'Lavanga' (a French NRI). The episodes featuring him and Nag together are extremely hilarious. Sunil has done another wonderful character. He acted as 'Banku Seenu' and his serious gestures and underplayed dialogue delivery makes us laugh our heart out. Chandra Mohan donned the role of a loyal manager. Dharmavarapu Subramanyan played another hilarious 3-scene role in this film as a seller of secret-mike devices. All artists in the film are utilized for generating optimal output.

Its a typical Trivikram story i.e. heroine falls in with hero only after her engagement is completed. Another striking similarity in Trivikram's stories is that all the climaxes involve the hero getting heroine back when she is getting married to another guy. The story has ANR trademark in it. (ANR is shown as playboy in films who later falls in love with a single girl)

The hallmark in Vijaya Bhaskar's direction is completeness and sensibility. He is as good as Yash Chopra for handling sensible films involving human relations glorifying cinematic grammar. The way he portrays Teluguness in characterizations makes you feel that the story is happening in your home/neighborhood. Vijaya Bhaskar proved his mettle again with 'Manmadhudu'.

Trivikram infused life and abundant comedy into film with his witty dialogues. At the same time, there are gems of dialogues that tell you the facts of life. He knows how to play with the words and he writes repartee dialogues with nice rhyme. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is excellent. Even the background score is pretty good. The picturization of the songs have elevated the audio of Manmadhudu. Costimes by Asmita (photo) for Nagarjuna are awesome. She has also provided costumes for Nagarjuna in 'Santosham'.

First half of the film is extremely entertaining (total comedy + flashback romance). And second half (comedy + story) is better than first half. If I had to write anything disturbing about this film, there is only one point. The climax of the film is shown in a very simple way with a single Sunil dialogue on cell phone 'Nanna! Nenu Banku. Pellikuthuru Jumpu'. People, expecting a prolonged climax might find this one to be an abrupt one. Other than this single remark, the entire film is excellent. 95% of the scenes in the film are comedy dialogues. There are few sentiment scenes. But these very few sentiment scenes are bound to leave impact on you. Nagarjuna dominated the show and won accolades from audiences. It's a must recommended hilarious film for all Telugu film lovers.
