There are movies, and there are films by director Boyapati Srinu. Then there are movies by Boyapati Srinu starring Nandamuri Balakrishna. In the cinematic universe where the two collaborate, all the things is greater than everyday living. Almost nothing is subtle, not even remotely. In their 3rd outing with each other immediately after

The director is informed of the star’s large fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his films get there at the theatres. This time, the followers took it a move further. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , 1 of the roles essayed by Balakrishna is akin to a demi-God, somebody who has superhuman powers. The other character played by Balakrishna is named Murali Krishna, a Superior Samaritan who has been instrumental in halting faction strife and is revered by all.
With the phase set for a larger-than-daily life canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-moment film starts and finishes with action sequences that are cautiously choreographed, with enough sluggish movement shots built to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks amongst two significant wheels and later on tyres that are rolling absent, soon after beating men and women to a pulp, of training course, in sluggish motion.
Somewhere else, he thrusts a trishul into another person and turns it round a few of moments, just so we know he is not letting the evil types get absent conveniently. In yet another scene, bullets pop off someone’s skull. A different guy beaten up by Balakrishna and hurled up is still spinning in the air though the star walks absent in s.l.o.w.m.o.t.i.o.n. This is only the suggestion of the iceberg there’s a great deal extra action in the movie, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing score.
The tale is that of twins separated at birth. Been there, seen that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its men and women to the hilt. Witnessed this sort of tales too? Boyapati provides these oft-repeated mainstream storylines an additional edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) facet, throwing in a very good measure of religion, spirituality, excellent Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a familiar manner, depicting the hero’s superior deeds. There’s home for romance as properly. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted more as a intimate desire and later as spouse and younger mother than as a civil servant. She receives ample display screen time, but not ample scope to be taken severely as a district collector. The age variance in between the few also appears obtrusive.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has a little bit greater scope to portray a no-nonsense authorities formal.
Srikanth is solid as mine proprietor Varadaraju who understands no regret. He eats at a bad woman’s property and in return, offers her with the severed head of the male of the dwelling. If that offers an plan of the depiction of evil in this movie, there is extra. A series of barbaric events sets the phase for the arrival of ‘Akhanda’ as the saviour.
The drama goes on and on, with Boyapati and team not tiring of quite a few more action sequences. All this is laced with dialogues by M Ratnam. Some are sermons even though most are punchlines — ‘
Meeku samasya vaste dandam pedataru, memu aa samasyake pindam pedatam the two are not same’. Boyapati and Balakrishna appear to have comprehensively enjoyed creating the film.
Srikanth is released as a strong antagonist but finally will come throughout as a standard villain. Quite a few other people fill the display screen but have no scope to make an influence.
The movie receives tiresome publish intermission and the incessantly high voltage qualifications rating does not assist either.
