Boyapati Srinu and Nandamuri Balakrishna produce a loud mass action entertainer that is strictly for the fanbase
There are films, and there are movies by director Boyapati Srinu. Then there are films by Boyapati Srinu starring Nandamuri Balakrishna. In the cinematic universe where by the two collaborate, almost everything is much larger than daily life. Very little is delicate, not even remotely. In their 3rd outing jointly immediately after
Legend , the two come to a decision to up the scale and the decibels. Telugu movie
Akhanda stars Balakrishna in a dual position, but we’ll occur to that in a little bit.

The director is informed of the star’s huge fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his movies arrive at the theatres. This time, the fans took it a stage more. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , a single of the roles essayed by Balakrishna is akin to a demi-God, anyone who has superhuman powers. The other character played by Balakrishna is named Murali Krishna, a Good Samaritan who has been instrumental in stopping faction strife and is revered by all.
With the stage set for a greater-than-existence canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-minute movie commences and finishes with motion sequences that are diligently choreographed, with ample sluggish motion pictures created to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks concerning two large wheels and later tyres that are rolling absent, after beating folks to a pulp, of system, in slow motion.
In other places, he thrusts a trishul into somebody and turns it round a few of instances, just so we know he isn’t permitting the evil ones get away conveniently. In a different scene, bullets pop off someone’s skull. Another person beaten up by Balakrishna and hurled up is however spinning in the air although the star walks away in s.l.o.w.m.o.t.i.o.n. This is only the idea of the iceberg there’s plenty far more action in the film, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing score.
The tale is that of twins divided at delivery. Been there, found that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its people to the hilt. Viewed these types of tales way too? Boyapati gives these oft-recurring mainstream storylines an added edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) factor, throwing in a very good measure of faith, spirituality, fantastic Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a common manner, depicting the hero’s very good deeds. There is room for romance as very well. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted far more as a passionate interest and later as wife and younger mom than as a civil servant. She will get ample screen time, but not more than enough scope to be taken very seriously as a district collector. The age variance between the pair also seems evident.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has a bit far better scope to portray a no-nonsense governing administration official.
Srikanth is cast as mine proprietor Varadaraju who knows no regret. He eats at a weak woman’s home and in return, presents her with the severed head of the man of the house. If that gives an notion of the depiction of evil in this film, there’s far more. A series of barbaric situations sets the stage for the arrival of ‘Akhanda’ as the saviour.
The drama goes on and on, with Boyapati and team not tiring of several extra action 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 the two are not same’. Boyapati and Balakrishna feel to have totally relished generating the movie.
Srikanth is released as a highly effective antagonist but sooner or later comes across as a common villain. Quite a few other people fill the display screen but have no scope to make an impression.
The film receives tiresome submit intermission and the incessantly higher voltage background score does not assist both.
