Akhanda is the new Telugu film in the town. Nandamuri Balakrishna and Pragya Jaiswal played the lead roles in the movie. Boyapati Srinu is the film’s director and the movie marked his third outing with the actor after the blockbusters Simha and Legend. Interestingly, the film’s mania has crossed boundaries and a Newyork Times critic watched the film and heaped praises over it.
Akhanda is performing well in overseas, especially in the USA. The fans of Balakrishna organized rallies and turned the theatres into temples with Palabhishekam and Coconut breaking ceremonies to Balakrishna’s posters and cutouts.
The film’s collections in the USA is also growing big with each passing day. Interestingly, critic Simon Abrams, who reviews the films for several International portals including Newyork Times happened to watch Akhanda and he is in love with it. In a series of tweets, he shared the film’s review.
He tweeted, “I enjoyed the first half of the Telugu language Indian action epic AKHANDA, about an area man who picks a fight with a corrupt mine owner. But the second half brings in the title character, the twin brother of the first half’s lead. Then it becomes something special. AKHANDA’s awesomely cartoonish set pieces are all wind machines, speed ramping, master shots, symmetrical closeups & gonzo choreography. Seeing it alone (save for one guy) at Union Square 14 was thrilling; so loud that my ears popped. “The third eye has opened. You are done for.”

Simon also added, “Akhanda fights while possessed by the god Shiva. He impales a few heavies with his trident. Akhanda also rearranges the main heavy’s chakras one by one, naming each body part he’s destroying (solar plexus chakra!). He’s friend to zebu and children. Akhanda is righteous.”
Miriyala Ravinder Reddy bankrolled the film. The film released on December 2nd in theatres.
