Manyam Puli :
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal is a huge brand in Tollywood, following the grand success of Janatha Garage. The actor's Dasara blockbuster, Pulimurugan, released in Telugu as Manyam Puli on December 2nd.
No 3rd position at the box office..
The film scores heavily in the action and cinematography departments. Terrifically shot action sequences are the major highlights of Manyam Puli. The three sequences featuring Mohanlal and the man-eater are breathtaking. The film is an out and out Mohanlal show.
After several exhilarating episodes in the forest, the film turns quite mundane as soon as it enters the city setup. The entrance of a local don and the hero fighting against a conspiracy look jaded and side tracks the film. The film's excessive runtime and Namitha's silly role are yet another major drawbacks.
