Boyapati Srinu and Nandamuri Balakrishna supply a loud mass motion entertainer that is strictly for the fanbase
There are movies, and there are movies 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 lifestyle. Almost nothing is subtle, not even remotely. In their 3rd outing jointly immediately after

The director is aware of the star’s substantial fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his films get there at the theatres. This time, the followers took it a stage even more. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , one particular 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 Great Samaritan who has been instrumental in halting faction strife and is revered by all.
With the phase set for a bigger-than-lifetime canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-minute film starts and ends with action sequences that are cautiously choreographed, with ample sluggish motion pictures intended to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks concerning two large wheels and afterwards tyres that are rolling absent, soon after beating individuals to a pulp, of program, in gradual movement.
Elsewhere, he thrusts a trishul into an individual and turns it spherical a few of occasions, just so we know he isn’t letting the evil types get absent easily. In yet another scene, bullets pop off someone’s skull. Another man overwhelmed up by Balakrishna and hurled up is even now spinning in the air when 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 a lot more action in the film, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing rating.
The tale is that of twins separated at beginning. Been there, viewed that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its people today to the hilt. Observed these stories way too? Boyapati gives these oft-repeated mainstream storylines an extra edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) part, throwing in a very good measure of religion, spirituality, good Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a common style, depicting the hero’s great deeds. There is home for romance as nicely. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted more as a passionate desire and later as wife and younger mother than as a civil servant. She gets sufficient display screen time, but not ample scope to be taken very seriously as a district collector. The age variation among the pair also appears glaring.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has somewhat better scope to portray a no-nonsense governing administration formal.
Srikanth is cast as mine operator Varadaraju who is familiar with no remorse. He eats at a bad woman’s house and in return, provides her with the severed head of the man of the home. If that offers an strategy of the depiction of evil in this film, there’s extra. A collection of barbaric occasions sets the phase for the arrival of ‘Akhanda’ as the saviour.
The drama goes on and on, with Boyapati and staff not tiring of quite a few additional 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 appear to have extensively savored producing the film.
Srikanth is released as a effective antagonist but at some point arrives throughout as a normal villain. A lot of other people fill the display but have no scope to make an impression.
The movie gets tiresome put up intermission and the incessantly superior voltage qualifications score doesn’t help possibly.
