In the film, you have to watch not one, but three Balakrishnas as he performs a triple role. His intensive dialogues carry a lot of punch and power and it could appease his fans, but his stylized acting may not be well-received by today's youngsters.
Director Parachuri Murali makes things worse by writing a script, complete with illogical and ill-conceived sequences.
Technically, 'Adhinayakudu' fails to meet the expectations because of poor production values, bad editing and below average cinematography.
The story revolves around a respected leader Rama Krishna Prasad who hails from Rayalaseema area of Andhra Pradesh. As expected, he is targeted by his political rivals. Prasad is known for his influence in Rayalaseema's social and political landscape.
Rivals hire supari killer Kittu, who is actually senior Rama Krishna Prasad's son. Rather than doing his job, Kittu protects his father which infuriates the villains. Later it is revealed that Rama Krishna is the son of Harischandra Prasad who was a legend in Seema politics.
Harischandra Prasad is killed by Kittu and it angers Rama Krishna Prasad and it creates a rift between father and son.
Tolerating one noisy Balakrishna is more than enough for the audiences, but in this film they have Balakrishna in three different roles and getups.
Lakshmi Rai and Saloni provide the 'glamour' quotient. Veteran artists' roles and performances do not speak much.
Kalyani Malik's music is ordinary.
'Adhinayakudu' is enjoyable only if you are a genuine fan of Balakrishna.
