Finally, as everyone is eagerly waiting, the film Akhil released today as Deepawali special. Before we get into the story, let us recollect some interesting points. When Akhil is about to make his debut, he is in a deep confusion as whom to select as his first film director. Its then Akhil found Vinayak as search light when he is in dark. I dont understand the logic why all the stars expect their kid to have a grand launch through a mass and commercial cinema. Especially, we see this culture in Telugu cinema. But Akhil is just 21 and its too heavy for him to have a grand launch with a mass action entertainer. But if you think it happened in the case of NTR with Aadi, when he was 19, it is because of a good story. But in the case of Akhil, there is no story!
Akhil blindly believed in Nithiin, Sudhakar Reddy and VV Vinayak. VV Vinayak already proved as a successful commercial director who gave hits to Nithiin and Tarak at an early age. Akhil also hoped that the same will be repeated in his case but he failed to realize the importance of the script than the director or the other technicians. Well, coming into the film, the film revolves around Jua which stops Global Catastrophe from powerful UV rays. A German Scientist Kathrochi tries to snatch it from an African tribe and the heroine has a connection with it and automatically the hero too enters in the scene to save the heroine.
Akhil is the least possible bad film you dont expect from VV Vinayak. In the name of making a different film, the makers have concentrated on all the other departments except the script. Atleast now, Akhil before getting attached to any image should realize the importance of story! The star image drives the audiences to the theatres but then it is the story that will decide the fate. Akhil worked really very hard for the film. There is no whole heartedness in his hard work. It looks like his intention was to make the film a hit but he should have worked hard keeping in mind that the result of Akhil will not affect his career. His dances are fine and his fights are good. But at the same time, he should be aware of another fact that dances and fights are the least important factors when you have an interesting and convincing story in hand. All these fights and dances are additional attractions.
From the beginning, Akhil had that fear of failure and it dominated his performance. At a point of time, you will really feel sorry for Akhil. Everyone is concerned more about making Akhil is a star rather than giving Akhil a good film that gives scope for Akhil to perform. The female lead Sayyesha gets a good debut. She performed very well. Lipsika’s dubbing is also apt for her. Actor like Rajendra Prasad is wasted in a short role. There is no proper story in the film and the screenplay is really pathetic. The loosely written script made the film worse. Akhil performance is unimpressive. There are many scenes in the film that are really bad. Scenes like Rabbit operation, Akhil vs Panther fight are included in the film just to fool the audiences. After all, everything and anything is possible in Telugu cinema. Finally, Vinayak who seems to have come out of his comfort zone also failed miserably.
On a final note, Akhil should start concentrating on selecting good stories rather than getting into the routine path in the name of commercial cinema. If he fails to do that, he will end up becoming a struggling box office star rather than a good actor of people’s choice.
