Akhil Akkineni's Mr Majnu is scheduled for its grand release across the world on January 25, but the movie is being premiered in the US and few other foreign countries a day before it hits screens in India.
Akhil Akkineni is the son of Nagarjuna and grandson of late legendary actor ANR aka Nageswara Rao. He made his acting debut in films to make it big like his father and grandfather. But he suffered a big setback with both his films, namely, Akhil: The Power of Jua and Hello, as they turned out to be disasters at the worldwide box office.
Mr Majnu is the third film of Akhil Akkineni, who has pinned a lot of hopes on it. He has not only undergone a physical transformation for the film but also promoted it heavily on various platforms. He invited Junior NTR as the chief guest for its pre-release event in a bid to grab more eyeballs.
Mr Majnu is a romantic entertainer with a good dose of human emotions. Akhil Akkineni has teamed up director Venky Atlluri of Tholi Prema fame. Venky had narrated this script to the actor even before the release of his first film. But he could not do it then due to his prior commitments. Though he had asked the director to go ahead with a different actor, Venky Atlluri reserved this script for him.
Mr Majnu has been produced by BVSN Prasad under his banner Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra (SVCC). Akhil Akkineni and Nidhhi Agerwal are seen in the lead roles, while Izabelle Leite, Naga Babu, Subbaraju, Rao Ramesh, Jayaprakash, Pavitra Lokesh, Sithara, Priyadarshi Pullikonda and Vidyullekha Raman appear in the film.
Mr Majnu has apparently received a positive response from the officials of the censor board, who have awarded a U/A certificate to the movie. (Check their reactions below). We bring you overseas viewers' review on Mr Majnu shared on Twitter. Stay locked to this page.

#MrMajnu is a breezy Romantic Entertainer. Akhil delivered Excellent performance & Venky Atluri's dialogues are Heart-touching. Top-Notch Visuals From George c Williams & Thaman's music-BGM is extraordinary. Akhil's performance throughout the film is fantastic. Special mention to the family episode & climax episode. Nidhhi Agarwal looked good and her dialogues in the interval episode are superb. #MrMajnu
Interval. #MrMajnu 1st half works, Venky's admiration to Akhil is clearly visible as he showcased him in the best way possible. #VenkyAtluri is a specialist in writing romantic scenes that give you butterflies & there are a few. And some seq. Featuring Darshi are fun #MrMajnu only small , small downside is that as #VenkyAtluri established Akhil - The LadiesMan , there many sequences showcasing Akhil as a Good person to elevate him in front of Nidhi Agarwal . But some emotional scenes featuring #RaoRamesh are good.

#MrMajnu #MrMajnuOnJan25th done with first half. Don't give so many performances only one performance #FASAK jai akhil anna! #MrMajnu #MrMajnuOnJan25th @AkhilAkkineni8 gave his best in this film, improved a lot. @AgerwalNidhhi as nikky is Ok.

Good first half but a very predictable second half for #MrMajnu much on the lines of many recent love stories. Nothing new.
#MrMajnu started great... and story ended with the 1st half.. 2nd half .. Songs super.. Anni montage songs except for 1.. rr is loud for me and ate up few voices.. 3.25/5..

#MrMajnu First half excellent & second half very good. Super hit flick A star is born @AkhilAkkineni8 & finally much deserving success
Kummesadu @AkhilAkkineni8 1st half superb 2nd half starts on dull note.. picked up pace gradually with Good climax #MrMajnu . Overall 1st hit for @AkhilAkkineni8 ✌️ @MusicThaman soul of the film
First Half Report: @dirvenky_atluri succeeds in bringing #TholiPrema touch i.e. freshly packaging a simple & predictable story. @AkhilAkkineni8 dominated everyone with his style and charm. No issues with the first half by and large. It's all up to second half now. #MrMajnu
