Khaidi No 150 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies in the recent times. One can effortlessly say that no movie has created such a high as Khaidi as it is Chiranjeevi’s comeback movie after 9 years long gap.
Kaththi Seenu (Chiranjeevi) is a pleased go lucky guy who escapes from jail and wishes to leave the nation for good. One fine day, he comes through an accident and assists the man who gets affected by it.
The turn in the tale rises when Seenu finds out that the guy (Shankar) he saved is the exactly looking like him. He smartly sends back Shankar to jail in his place and silently goes into his life to earn more cash.
Then, he comes to know that Shankar’s life is wretched as he is the only guy who is assisting the browbeaten farmers of his village. Distressed by this, Seenu chooses to own Shankar’s glitches and launches a giant fight against the corporate businesses that are behind all this. How does he solve all these snags forms the remaining story.
The initial thing that comes to your mind when you start watching the movie is, did Chiru really take a long gap. Right from the first frame, he excites you big time. After all these years, Chiru’s screen existence, comedy timing, and action have not gone down a bit.
Be it his silly dialogues or spectacular dance moves, the whole thing will make mega fans quite pleased. Chiru’s performance through the emotional scenes and climax carry a lot of depth to the movie. Kajal looks beautiful in the film and courteously suits the frame with Chiru.
The first half of the movie is quite breezy with an impressive interval block. Credit goes to Devi Sri Prasad for giving an outstanding music score as all the songs will be tremendously loved by all. Particularly, the situation turns elated during the last song where Ram Charan makes an entry.
One can simply say that the villain is a big weak link for the movie. Perhaps, a better star actor should have been a great match for Chiru’s power. There are no solid argumentative scenes amid the hero and the villain which would have raised the movie to another level.
Though, the glitches of farmers are raised well, the solution given through the climax looks quite cleated. Also, the story of the movie is normal and does not have any exciting twists. The second half of the movie gets a bit serious and slows down through the climax.
Devi rocks here with his music. The icing on the cake is his background score which uplifts the movie to a decent level. Exceptional credit should go to DOP Ratnavelu for taking Chiru in a spectacular way and makes you go in incredulity that Chiru is actually a 60-year actor. Dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra are massy. Production values by Ram Charan are top notch. He has not negotiated one bit for the movie as the song locations and visuals looked great.
Styling done for Chiranjeevi by his daughter Sushmita is excellent as the mega star looks so young and transmits all the vivacious colors nicely. Distinct mention should go to all the dance choreographers who have done a fabulous job in the songs.
Coming to the direction, Vinayak, he has done a pleasing job with the movie. Kudos to him, for presenting chiru in a way which fans were missing from a long time.
On the whole, Khaidi No 150 is a classic mass entertainer. The movie is set to take record openings and has the whole thing that we expect from a star hero like Chiranjeevi. He makes an impressive comeback and attests that even at this age he can give each star hero a run for their cash. If you overlook the predictable story line and boring climax, Chiru’s one man show, excellent songs, and a good message makes this movie a good watch this Sankranthi.
