Nandamuri Balakrishna's 'Akhanda' is a prime example to prove how a complete positive buzz can shift the film from being a hit into a blockbuster. 'Akhanda' is a regular commercial masala film with over-the-top action sequences and dialogues that you expect from a Balakrishna film. But the hype which surrounded the film before its release helped the film a lot. Also, being the first star hero film to arrive after the second wave is one of the major reasons for its success.
This film turned out to be a tremendous hit and it completed its 50 days run at the box office. After 'Simha' and 'Legend', Balayya and Boyapati have delivered such a blockbuster like 'Akhanda'. The mass audience had a blast watching this film and it got a universally positive response from everywhere. 'Akhanda' brought profits to every buyer and turned out to be the biggest hit in the long career of Balakrishna. It is one of the rare films in recent times to complete 50 days run on the big screens. It completed 50 days in 106 centers all over the Telugu states. Fans are jumping in joy due to this achievement from Balakrishna.
Pragya Jaiswal is the heroine in this project while Miryala Ravinder Reddy is the producer. Thaman composed the music and he is considered as the second hero of the film thanks to his stupendous background scores. Srikanth played a negative role while Poorna, Jagapathi Babu, Subbaraju and others played key roles. Balakrishna played a dual role in this movie which is getting streamed on Disney+Hotstar from 21st January. He was seen as Aghora in this film and his dialogues made the masses go wild in theatres. Boyapati proved once again that he knows how to present Balayya in the best possible manner.
After this flick, Balayya is all set to work with Gopichand Malineni and Shruti Hassan is the heroine in it. Mythri Movie Makers are producing this film in which Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar will be playing a key role. Balakrishna is also doing a talk show named 'Unstoppable' for 'Aha' which is a grand success.
