Malayalam superstar Mohanlal's Telugu film Manamantha released on Friday opened to an overwhelming response from the audience and critics. Manamantha, which is touted as an anthology of four stories, has been directed by the National Award - winning director Chandrasekhar Yeleti. The film also marks Mohanlal's first movie in 2016.
Manamantha has impressed Baahubali director SS Rajamouli as well. The talented director, who is a huge fan of Mohanlal, had reportedly cancelled the on-going shoot of Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion to catch the latest flick of Lalettan. Rajamouli has lauded the director and the entire unit of Manamantha by praising the film as a textbook for every film student. The director also stated that Manamantha will remain a top class film in the career of Chandu and Vaaraahi Chalana Chitram.
Rajamouli took to his Twitter account to express his opinion on Manamantha:
