Rule No 1: Don’t depend on logic. The concept of time and gravity wouldn’t exist in his universe.
Rule No 2: You’ll nonetheless hear people roaring even after you step out of the cinema hall.
Now, let’s get into Akhanda’s story. All through a moist night time time, a girl gives supply to twins. A godman (Jagapathi Babu) senses that certainly one of many twins has an obligation to hold out and gives him to a saint, who takes him to Kasi. He grows as a lot as be Akhanda (Nandamuri Balakrishna AKA Balyya), a godman who can’t be touched by anybody or one thing. In Boyapati’s universe, one thing means bullets, axes, knives and completely different weapons.
The alternative baby named Murali Krishna is a farmer who makes use of his money to help people. Saranya (Pragya Jaiswal) turns into the collector of the district, who falls in love with Murali Krishna. In a span of 5 minutes, over a tune, they get married and have a toddler.
Within the meantime, there’s Varadarajulu (Srikanth), who, with the help of Gajendra (Niitin Mehta), are involved in illegal uranium extraction.
How the two Balayyas meet and battle for the good sorts the crux of the story.
Sounds an extreme quantity of? No, not in Boyapati’s universe. The character arc of Murali Krishna at first takes you abruptly. He wouldn’t think about in violence. Nonetheless shortly, you get an unlimited slap in your face for having extreme hopes. He makes use of violence to put the damaging guys in place. Since he’s an excellent man, considerably violence might be exempted.
Like every Boyapati film, Akhanda has our our bodies flying everywhere, the hero bashing the goons left, correct and centre and the heroines sidelined to cry and hype up the hero.

The overuse of blowers and the smoke machine, inform us that.
That’s Balayya’s current all one of the best ways – significantly the Akhanda mannequin. The reality is, even Murali Krishna takes a backseat when Akhanda comes on show. From mouthing extremely efficient and important dialogues to educating the villains the becoming lesson, he does all of the issues with quite a bit ease. Nonetheless, don’t ask how Akhanda came to Murali Krishna’s village in such a short time. Take into account rule No 1?
Akhanda could be a battle between people who’ve the loudest roar. The villains shout at a certain decibel diploma. And the hero overpowers. So much so that you just simply hear them even after you’ve bought stepped out of the theatre.
Akhanda had a steady story beneath all the mass vehicle moments. Nonetheless, in an attempt to glorify the hero, the story will get sidelined. Whereas Pragya Jaiswal oversells her effectivity, completely different actors did ship an excellent effectivity.
Akhanda is a film that’s strictly for Balayya followers. There are a selection of moments that may make you cheer for him. Nonetheless, that’s it.
