The director is mindful of the star’s enormous fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his movies arrive at the theatres. This time, the fans took it a phase more. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , a person of the roles essayed by Balakrishna is akin to a demi-God, anyone who has superhuman powers. The other character performed by Balakrishna is named Murali Krishna, a Great Samaritan who has been instrumental in stopping faction strife and is revered by all.
With the phase set for a larger-than-existence canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-moment movie commences and ends with motion sequences that are meticulously choreographed, with enough slow movement pictures designed to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks between two big wheels and afterwards tyres that are rolling away, soon after beating persons to a pulp, of training course, in sluggish motion.
In other places, he thrusts a trishul into anyone and turns it spherical a few of periods, just so we know he isn’t allowing the evil ones get away simply. In another scene, bullets pop off someone’s cranium. An additional gentleman crushed up by Balakrishna and hurled up is nevertheless spinning in the air though the star walks absent in s.l.o.w.m.o.t.i.o.n. This is only the tip of the iceberg there’s a good deal much more motion in the movie, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing rating.
The story is that of twins divided at beginning. Been there, noticed that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its individuals to the hilt. Witnessed this kind of tales as well? Boyapati offers these oft-recurring mainstream storylines an included edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) facet, throwing in a fantastic measure of faith, spirituality, excellent Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a acquainted manner, depicting the hero’s excellent deeds. There’s space for romance as nicely. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted a lot more as a passionate desire and afterwards as spouse and young mom than as a civil servant. She will get ample screen time, but not adequate scope to be taken significantly as a district collector. The age change in between the few also seems evident.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has slightly far better scope to portray a no-nonsense govt official.
Srikanth is forged as mine operator Varadaraju who is aware of no regret. He eats at a very poor woman’s dwelling and in return, offers her with the severed head of the guy of the household. If that offers an plan of the depiction of evil in this movie, there is extra. A sequence of barbaric functions sets the phase for the arrival of ‘Akhanda’ as the saviour.
The drama goes on and on, with Boyapati and team not tiring of a number of extra action sequences. All this is laced with dialogues by M Ratnam. Some are sermons whilst most are punchlines — ‘
Meeku samasya vaste dandam pedataru, memu aa samasyake pindam pedatam each are not same’. Boyapati and Balakrishna feel to have comprehensively relished building the film.
Srikanth is released as a effective antagonist but at some point arrives across as a regular villain. Various other characters fill the display but have no scope to make an impact.
The film receives tiresome put up intermission and the incessantly significant voltage qualifications score doesn’t help either.
