The combination of Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati Sreenu has been a popular among the Balayya's fans, with the duo's last two films becoming blockbusters. Simha and Legend were huge successes, and now the pair is back with Akhanda. The teaser looked impressive, with Balayya dressed in an Akhanda outfit and battling fearsome adversaries. The film was released today, and it had a great opening weekend all around the world.


Muralikrishna (Balakrishna) is a good-natured man from Ananthapuram who devotes his life to helping others and contributes significantly to the region's growth.

Sarwani (Pragya Jaiswal), the new collector, is taken with his character and falls for him. They marry and have a daughter together.

Sarwani and Murali Krishna find themselves in jeopardy thanks to the local mining mafia chief Varadarajulu (Srikanth). When Varadarajulu's men pursue Sarwani and her daughter, she seeks refuge in a cave. Akhanda, a Sadhu, comes to her rescue (Balakrishna).


Once again, Balakrishna is a one-man show. Balakrishna is known for producing powerful performances on his own, and he did so again in this film with aplomb. Balayya has excelled in every aspect of the film, from line delivery to battle scenes. His presence on television is energising. On the screen, his fans will appreciate him. Pragya Jaiswal has a significant role in the film, yet she is merely a commercial movie heroine. The part of Kalakeya Prabhakar is excellent, while Srikanth, in a bad role, astounds everyone. Jagapathi Babu too does a wonderful job in his part. The rest of the cast is fantastic as well.

Technical Aspects

In the technological department, Thaman stands out as the best. He has given his all for the film, and his effort will be praised for a long time in the days ahead. The film's camera work is excellent. The visuals in the second half, which feature Balakrishna as Akhanda, are fantastic. The editing is excellent. The fight scenes in the film are well-crafted. The design of the production is fantastic. The BGM, more than the audio album, will become the film's talking point. The film's production values are opulent. The technical staff did an excellent job in producing the greatest results.

On the other hand, the dance choreography is impressive and fresh. Some steps in Jai Balayya song are worth to become viral

Overall review

Boyapati and Balakrishna previously collaborated on the films Simha and Legend. Akhanda also gives the supporters a special treat, living up to the hype. The film's production value is amazing. Boyapati correctly used Balakrishna and demonstrated two separate aspects of him. The picture is a tremendous feast for fans, as it is packed with mass components. The storey, on the other hand, is neither new nor original. Boayapti wrote an average screenplay with a predictable plot. Nonetheless, he made an attempt to portray Balakrishna in a unique light, making it the film's standout feature.

Some of the celebrities' also praised the film in Twitter
