I suspect your mandevilla is trying to adjust to the different temperatures, humidity and light levels now that it is in indoors. You can encourage healthy new growth by cutting it back. Make sure it is not sitting close to a heat source or heater vent and try misting it on a daily basis to increase humidity around the plant. I think it will snap out of it soon and begin to perk up. Best wishes with your mandevilla.
