Released on December 2, the film is expected to witness good growth over the weekend and mint money at a fast pace. Interestingly, reports are also rife that the makers are planning to arrange a success party for the cast and crew of the film very soon, and if that's the case then we think Akhanda has turned out to be a profitable venture for the entire team.
Akhanda has received rave reviews for its engaging storyline and performances of the actors, especially Balakrishna. The word of mouth is mostly positive, which should help the film stay strong in the upcoming days. However, it will face competition from Satya Dev-Nithya Menen's Skylab, which is hitting the theatres on Saturday (December 4).
Backed under Dwaraka Creations of producer Miryala Ravinder Reddy, Akhanda's technical team includes music director S Thaman, cinematographer C Ram Prasad and editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao.
