The director is mindful of the star’s enormous fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his movies get there at the theatres. This time, the admirers took it a action additional. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , one of the roles essayed by Balakrishna is akin to a demi-God, another person who has superhuman powers. The other character performed by Balakrishna is named Murali Krishna, a Excellent Samaritan who has been instrumental in stopping faction strife and is revered by all.
With the stage established for a larger sized-than-existence canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-moment movie commences and ends with action sequences that are diligently choreographed, with enough sluggish movement photographs designed to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks involving two big wheels and later on tyres that are rolling away, soon after beating folks to a pulp, of study course, in sluggish movement.
In other places, he thrusts a trishul into somebody and turns it round a pair of periods, just so we know he isn’t letting the evil types get away quickly. In a further scene, bullets pop off someone’s cranium. Another male beaten up by Balakrishna and hurled up is nevertheless spinning in the air while the star walks absent in s.l.o.w.m.o.t.i.o.n. This is only the idea of the iceberg there’s lots far more action in the film, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing score.
The story is that of twins divided at delivery. Been there, seen that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its persons to the hilt. Viewed this kind of tales also? Boyapati gives these oft-recurring mainstream storylines an extra edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) facet, throwing in a good evaluate of religion, spirituality, very good Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a common style, depicting the hero’s great deeds. There’s home for romance as well. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted additional as a passionate desire and later on as spouse and young mother than as a civil servant. She gets sufficient display screen time, but not adequate scope to be taken significantly as a district collector. The age variance involving the couple also seems evident.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has somewhat much better scope to portray a no-nonsense authorities official.
Srikanth is cast as mine operator Varadaraju who is aware of no regret. He eats at a weak woman’s household and in return, presents her with the severed head of the man of the dwelling. If that provides an idea of the depiction of evil in this movie, there is more. A series of barbaric events sets the stage 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 look to have totally liked generating the film.
Srikanth is introduced as a impressive antagonist but eventually will come throughout as a common villain. Many other figures fill the display screen but have no scope to make an influence.
The movie will get tiresome submit intermission and the incessantly high voltage qualifications score doesn’t enable possibly.
