Boyapati Srinu and Nandamuri Balakrishna deliver a loud mass motion entertainer that is strictly for the fanbase
There are films, and there are films by director Boyapati Srinu. Then there are movies by Boyapati Srinu starring Nandamuri Balakrishna.

In their third outing alongside one another after
Legend , the two make your mind up to up the scale and the decibels. Telugu film

The director is knowledgeable of the star’s substantial fanbase. Chants of ‘Jai Balayya’ are the norm when his movies arrive at the theatres. This time, the enthusiasts took it a phase even further. Sample this: ‘Edukondalavada Venkataramana… jai Balayya!’ In
Akhanda , one particular of the roles essayed by Balakrishna is akin to a demi-God, a person who has superhuman powers. The other character played by Balakrishna is named Murali Krishna, a Very good Samaritan who has been instrumental in halting faction strife and is revered by all.
With the stage set for a bigger-than-existence canvas, Boyapati goes all out. The 167-moment film commences and ends with action sequences that are thoroughly choreographed, with enough gradual movement pictures made to be dutifully lapped up amid loud cheers. Balakrishna walks amongst two massive wheels and later tyres that are rolling absent, after beating folks to a pulp, of program, in sluggish movement.
In other places, he thrusts a trishul into anyone and turns it spherical a few of situations, just so we know he isn’t allowing the evil kinds get away easily. In another scene, bullets pop off someone’s skull. One more guy beaten up by Balakrishna and hurled up is continue to spinning in the air whilst the star walks away in s.l.o.w.m.o.t.i.o.n. This is only the tip of the iceberg there’s loads additional action in the movie, unfolding to Thaman’s rousing score.
The story is that of twins separated at start. Been there, observed that? A uranium miner exploits the land and its folks to the hilt. Witnessed these kinds of tales far too? Boyapati provides these oft-repeated mainstream storylines an extra edge with the ‘Akhanda’ (invincible) part, throwing in a fantastic measure of religion, spirituality, very good Vs. evil godmen.
The narrative unfolds in a common style, depicting the hero’s good deeds. There is area for romance as very well. The new district collector Saranya Bachupalli (Pragya Jaiswal) is depicted much more as a intimate desire and afterwards as spouse and youthful mother than as a civil servant. She gets sufficient display time, but not ample scope to be taken significantly as a district collector. The age distinction among the few also appears obvious.
Poorna, as principal secretary Prabhavathi, probing the mining scandal, has a little better scope to portray a no-nonsense authorities official.
Srikanth is cast as mine proprietor Varadaraju who is aware of no remorse. He eats at a bad woman’s home and in return, offers her with the severed head of the man of the home. If that presents an idea of the depiction of evil in this movie, there’s more. A series of barbaric occasions 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 far more action sequences. All this is laced with dialogues by M Ratnam. Some are sermons though most are punchlines — ‘
Meeku samasya vaste dandam pedataru, memu aa samasyake pindam pedatam each are not same’. Boyapati and Balakrishna look to have completely loved producing the film.
Srikanth is released as a effective antagonist but at some point comes throughout as a standard villain. Quite a few other people fill the display screen but have no scope to make an effect.
The movie gets tiresome submit intermission and the incessantly large voltage background rating does not aid either.
