Weaved around the present-day education mafia, Akshara highlights the repercussions of it on the entire education system and its effect on young minds. ‘Yekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada’ fame Nandita Swetha played the main lead in this female-oriented movie.
Sanjay Bhargav (Sanjay Swaroop) is the head of Vidya Vidhaan educations Institutions. His only motive is to bag ranks and doesn’t bother about the pressure that the students are being succumbed to in the process. Akshara(Nandita Swetha) joins as a lecturer in his college. Gradually, her colleague Sri Teja falls for her. Surprisingly, he will be found murdered on the verge of proposing his love to Akshara. Claiming that she shot Sri Teja, Akshara surrenders to the police. Whether she really killed her colleague and why she joined the college is the rest of the story.
Director Chinni Krishna came up with a brilliant and contemporary storyline. A better screenplay and presentation could have done wonders for the movie. However, he should be appreciated for coming up with a sensitive issue that everyone can relate to. Even with the budget restraints, the makers came up with decent production values. Nagesh Banell’s camera work and Suresh Bobbili’s music helped to sustain interest in the movie.
Nanditha Swetha walks away with all the credit for her brilliant performance in an author-backed role. Apart from that, her screen presence also adds to the film. Sanjay Swaroop did his part as a ruthless industrialist. Shakalaka Shankar, Madhu, and Satya who starred in the comic roles succeeded in bringing laughter on occasions. Harshavardhan once again played his character with conviction with a notable performance. Appaji, Srikanth Iyengar, and Shatru delivered their part as well.
Contemparary social element
Poor writing crippled a contemporary and relevant storyline. Fails to engage the audience.
