Anu (Baby Zeeba) and Chanti (Master Anand Vardhan) are childhood friends at Araku Valley. Anu is a daughter of a wealthy government official and Chanti is the son of a poor widow. Anu leaves Chanti at the age of 8 when her parents shift to Vizag. Later on Chanti loses his mother. Mohan Rao (Chandra Mohan) gets hold of Chanti renames him as Venu and adapts him.

Anu (Reema Sen) and Venu (Uday Kiran) grows up at their respective places. Anu finishes her higher studies in Malaysia and returns. Venu does also single-mindedly waits for Anu. Anu starts writing a serial named 'Manasanta Nuvve', which contains her live story, in Swaty magazine hoping that Chanti would read it comes back to her. But she keeps her pen name as Renu, so that her anonymity could be protected (in the serial the heroine's name is Anu and hero's name is Chanti).

The rest of the film is about how Venu aka Chanti and Renu aka Anu would get united at the end.



Uday Kiran: Uday Kiran is going from strength to strength in his films. His character needs lot of underplaying and he did with the ease. He donned a too-good-to-believe and ever-sacrificing character in this film.

Reema Sen: Reema Sen is demure and livens up her role with the right kind of histrionics.

Tanu Roy: She did a cameo role in this film. Her character is a vital one and she executed her character with finesse.

Sunil: Sunil, who did wonderful role as the sidekick to hero in films like Nuvve Kavali, Chiru Navvuto, Nuvvu Nenu and Nuvvu Naaku Nachav in the past has done wonderful comedy role in this film. His comedy in this film is like oxygen to a serious love story.

Sirivennela: Sirivennela Seetarama Sastry has done a brief meaningful role as an anchor in this film. And that very scene is the vital moment in 'Manasanta Nuvve'. He is natural and his diction is lovely.

Technical Departments:

Story: MS Raju is known for his good taste in selecting right kind of story. His stories are always been good ones, if supported by a brilliant narration and screenplay.

Direction: For a first-timer, VN Aditya has done a commendable job. Some of the scenes prove the brilliant way in which the director has executed them. There are few of melodramatic moments in this film, which he could have handled differently.

Screenplay and Dialogues: Paruchuri brothers have come up with very good dialogues in this film. The screenplay would have been slick in the first half. Screenplay in second half is very gripping and exuberant.

Music: RP Patnaik has come up with another good music for this film. Though he has done a good job, it is overshadowed by the extraordinary work he has done for 'Nuvvu Nenu'. The songs and music are not as good as 'Nuvvu Nenu'.

Songs: Songs in this film are apt. The highlight song of this film is 'Kitakita Talupula', which comes at the right point of story. The first song that was pictured on kids was also very cute. 'Manasanta Nuvve' title song, which comes repeatedly, is also a winner.

Analysis: The first half of the film is average. Second half of the film is pretty good. Comedy in this film is single handedly executed by brilliant Sunil. Songs are good. They made the story complicated by introducing a unnecessary character for Sijju in this film. The film would have become more complete, if they had got rid of melodrama and the routine-climax in the film. Over all this film has got all the ingredients to attract family as well as youth to pull to the theater. It has potential to become a silent hit. We got to wait and see what the Dussera season has in store for this film's box-office fate.
