Akhil Akkineni and Sayesha Saigal's debut movie "Akhil: The Power Of Jua", which has been directed by VV Vinayak, has garnered mixed reviews from the audience.

See: Akhil movie stills

Written by Veligonda Srinivas, "Akhil: The Power Of Jua" is a socio-fantasy film, which is about a young guy who is in search of a precious stone. The story of the movie has failed to impress the audience, who are upset with Akhil Akkineni for choosing a bad script for his debut movie.

The audience say that the first half of "Akhil: The Power Of Jua" is good with some good romance, music, dance and comedy scenes. But, the slow-paced narration kills the interest of the viewers in the second half. The climax of the film does not seem to have impressed many movie buffs.

Akhil Akkineni has delivered good performance in "Akhil: The Power of Jua". His dance, action and dialogue diction have impressed the viewers. Sayesha Saigal's glamour, Brahmanandam's comedy, good music, well choreography of action and dance, beautiful location are the big assets of the film. Average VFX works and dragging narration, weak climax are its big drawbacks, say the viewers.

We bring you the verdict of the viewers posted on Twitter. Here is the live update of "Akhil: The Power Of Jua" movie review by the audience:

Bad story, Bad narration, Worst VFX ever, Predictable Torture, Uncontrollable Budget, Forcible Songs, Slapstick Comedy #AkhilThePowerOfJua Good performances by debutant actors @AkhilAkkineni8 @sayyeshaa but they failed to select a standard script. #AkhilThePowerOfJua What's good: Lead actors performance, choreography and fights #AkhilThePowerOfJua

Abhiram ‏@abhiramsainath
