Finally, Chiru’s 150th Movie Khaidi No. 150 has arrived! Seeing megastar Chiranjeevi, after almost a decade, fans went into a frenzy. They felt extremely happy and their excitement found no boundaries.
All the fans after watching the film gave an extraordinary response.
“Even after all these years of his absence from the silver screen, Chiru’s performance and comedy timing have not gone down one bit”, said Rajeshwar Reddy, after watching the movie at Star Cinema, in Muscat.
“Director Vinayak has given his best. The movie is really mind blowing”, he added.
Right from Chiru’s performance to showcasing the farmers’ problems, the director has narrated the film in a decent way.
Khaidi No. 150 is an Indian Telugu-language action drama film directed by V V Vinayak, and written by AR Murugadoss and is set up against the backdrop of a village, a grandfather and his grandson.
“Chiru has made a thumping comeback to prove that even at this age he can give every star hero a run for their money”, said Nagraju after watching the movie.
The fans are happy with his crazy dialogues and stunning dance moves.
According to Nagraju, the film deviated a little from the original to match the larger than life image of Chiranjeevi but it looked like the audience had no issues with it.
“Chiru’s performance during the emotional scenes and climax bring a lot of depth to the film. Kajal looks gorgeous in the film and nicely suits the frame with Chiru”, said another fan.
The subtle handling of emotions without getting too much in your face or the comedy that he generates even without a complete support from other end shows the capabilities of the star.
The first half of the film is quite breezy with a thumping interval block. Credit should also go to Devi Sri Prasad for giving a superb music score as all the songs will be hugely loved by all. Especially, the situation turns euphoric during the last song where Charan makes an entry.
All the Khaidi No. 150 Songs are standing as the highlight of the film as their earlier released in youtube channel so they have attracted the audience. Chiranjeevi is a criminal in jail and escapes after helping police catch another criminal. After escaping and on parole with his friend, Chiranjeevi encounters his doppelganger(double role) being shot by thugs. To escape from police parole, Chiranjeevi disguises himself as his doppelganger and goes to an old age home to live his life. He then encounters villagers whose only hope for irrigation and water supply was the petition filed by Chiranjeevi’s doppelganger.
Moved by the villagers and their problems, Chiranjeevi (the Khaidi) solves all their problems in unique ways and highlights the issue to national media.
Kajal Aggarwal plays the love interest of Khaidi. How did Khaidi help the villagers and what happened to his other doppelganger forms the rest of the story. The film has its brilliant moments in second half where Chiranjeevi plans with farmers to stop the water pipelines of the whole city. The movie also has its fair share of emotional scenes in its second half.
There are no solid confrontational scenes between the hero and the villain which would have elevated the film to another level. Also, the story of the film is normal and does not have any interesting twists. The second half of the film gets a bit serious and slows down during the climax.
