The director is mindful of the star’s enormous fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his films get there at the theatres. This time, the enthusiasts took it a move even more. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , one of the roles essayed by Balakrishna is akin to a demi-God, an individual who has superhuman powers. The other character played by Balakrishna is named Murali Krishna, a Great Samaritan who has been instrumental in halting faction strife and is revered by all.
With the stage established for a more substantial-than-existence canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-minute movie commences and ends with motion sequences that are carefully choreographed, with ample slow movement pictures made to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks among two significant wheels and afterwards tyres that are rolling absent, just after beating individuals to a pulp, of class, in gradual movement.
In other places, he thrusts a trishul into anyone and turns it round a pair of situations, just so we know he is not letting the evil ones get away simply. In an additional scene, bullets pop off someone’s skull. One more man overwhelmed up by Balakrishna and hurled up is nonetheless spinning in the air even 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 plenty much more action in the movie, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing rating.
The tale is that of twins divided at delivery. Been there, witnessed that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its people to the hilt. Found this kind of tales much too? Boyapati gives these oft-recurring mainstream storylines an extra edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) element, throwing in a excellent measure of religion, spirituality, excellent Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a familiar fashion, depicting the hero’s excellent deeds. There is area for romance as very well. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted much more as a romantic interest and later on as wife and younger mother than as a civil servant. She gets sufficient display time, but not plenty of scope to be taken very seriously as a district collector. The age difference amongst the couple also seems obvious.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has a little better scope to portray a no-nonsense authorities formal.
Srikanth is forged as mine owner Varadaraju who is familiar with no remorse. He eats at a very poor woman’s house and in return, offers her with the severed head of the person of the dwelling. If that gives an plan of the depiction of evil in this movie, there is a lot more. A series of barbaric functions sets the phase for the arrival of ‘Akhanda’ as the saviour.
The drama goes on and on, with Boyapati and staff not tiring of various extra motion sequences. All this is laced with dialogues by M Ratnam. Some are sermons although most are punchlines — ‘
Meeku samasya vaste dandam pedataru, memu aa samasyake pindam pedatam each are not same’. Boyapati and Balakrishna feel to have comprehensively savored producing the film.
Srikanth is introduced as a effective antagonist but inevitably comes throughout as a common villain. Several other people fill the display screen but have no scope to make an effect.
The film gets tiresome write-up intermission and the incessantly significant voltage track record rating does not assist both.
