Evaluation: After Legend and Simha, director Boyapati Srinu and actor Balakrishna workers up for his or her third film – a mass masala entertainer that relies upon solely on the lead’s star power. A superb story-line is watered down as a consequence of a miscalculated screenplay and all people takes a backseat for NBK (along with one among his characters). The tip consequence could make the star’s followers scream ‘Jai Balayya’ practically endlessly nevertheless one can’t deny that Boyapati fails to tug off what he ensures.
Murali Krishna (Balakrishna) is a people’s man inside the faction-ridden Anantapur. He’s a farmer who makes use of his earnings to assemble hospitals, throw a punch when wished however as well as reform factionists to maintain nature and stop violence. His character is type of a nod to the model new course Balakrishna is ready to take collectively along with his roles. District Collector Saranya (Pragya Jaiswal) is unafraid to hold corrupt cops accountable and dig deep into misdoings in her district with the help of Principal Secretary of Environment, Forest, and Native climate Change, Padmavati (Poorna). And whereas enough time is spent on how Saranya falls for Murali they normally every assemble a life collectively (after some weird flirting that takes place over seat belts, taati kallu and telugu tanam), this isn’t their story.
That’s the story of Murali’s long-lost twin Akhanda (Balakrishna as an aghora/baba) who’s taken away from his family by a Baba (Jagapathi Babu) because of he has a future to fulfil. It’s believed he’s born to correct the wrongs of Gajendra Sahu, a ruthless man who takes over an ashram and pretends he’s a saint to cowl up his crimes. Moreover on this story is Varada Rajulu (Srikanth), one different ruthless man who takes up illegal uranium mining in Nallamala beneath the guise of copper mining. When people whose lives Murali vowed to protect are misplaced and Saranya has to fight to avoid wasting numerous what’s left of her family, Akhanda heads on a war-path to avoid wasting numerous the day.
Whereas the important premise of Akhanda is attention-grabbing, notably the easiest way Boyapati items it up by weaving a legendary story with mass moments in a method solely he can, he shortly loses the plot (truly) and can get carried away with giving Akhanda and Murali mass moments that are sure to elicit whistles nevertheless don’t do one thing for the story. He moreover takes a detour to wax eloquent on each half from nature to the importance of God and temples to how girls (like nature) are presupposed to be protected not ravaged. The irony is misplaced on no person when the film indulges in double entrendre dialogues, introduction scenes that include vonis flying and ladies/girls getting used as collaterals of battle. None of this supplies to the story each. From the minute Akhanda enters the physique, each half and all people takes a backseat, along with Murali. Saranya and Padmavati are develop into damsels-in-distress, Murali is misplaced in his private guilt and grief, and even the supposedly extremely efficient Gajendra and Varada keep no footing now because of Akhanda has the hand of Shiva himself defending him. Nay, he’s even believed to be God himself.
Balakrishna will get the prospect to shine because of he fills practically every physique of the film each as Murali or Akhanda. He’ll get to bop and delight in dialogue-baazi when he’s not exhibiting off his cool new avatar in slow-motion photos that focus on his fake tattoos and piercing eyes. And whereas that’s initially enough to supply you a rush, it shortly will get exhausting as a result of the film progresses. Pragya could get an introduction (practically) on par with the hero nevertheless she’s misplaced to the proceedings, no matter her giving the character her all. Poorna, Srikanth, Jagapathi Babu, Kalakeya Prabhakar, Subbaraju and others have one-tone characters that they breeze through.
Aside from the mass moments and fights (by Ram-Laxman) that are satisfying (nevertheless there are too numerous them), what works for the film is Thaman’s BGM. His score and Ram Prasad’s cinematography set the tone for the film, even making the proceedings attention-grabbing when it’s clear Boyapati is filling runtime with nothing lots to say. On the end of all of it, the dimensions of the film (2-hours-47-minutes) wouldn’t seem justified for the story he wishes to tell. You’re moreover left with the feeling that no matter Balakrishna’s aghora character Akhanda taking over lots time, Boyapati misses potential there to do further with it.
Akhanda is the type of entertainer that’ll work strictly for Balakrishna’s followers because of anyone searching for to easily kill time over a tub of popcorn could depart exhausted. Seeing as the way in which it has been prolonged since a star entertainer has hit the screens, time will inform if that’s the film that drives once more people to the theatres.
