It is a big day for actor-turned-politician Megastar Chiranjeevi as his comeback drama titled "Khaidi No 150" hit silver screens with great expectations. The film is an official remake of Tamil movie "Kaththi" that stars Vijay in the lead.
Director: VV Vinayak
Cast: Chiranjeevi and Kajal Aggarwal
Music Director: Devi Sri Prasad
Producer: Ram Charan under Konidela Production Company
The movie is centered around the story of a petty criminal (Kaththi Seenu), who escapes from the prison. He plans to run away to a foreign country, but after meeting a girl (Kajal) at the airport, he drops his plan. He played dual roles in the much-hyped flick. Later, he meets his lookalike (Shankar), who is being shot by a group of criminals.
With this, he admits him to a hospital and decides to impersonate him after learning that he is a post-graduate in hydrology and wants to help farmers in his village, which is under threat of being occupied by an MNC, which wants to construct a factory. The story is all about how he fights for the village.
First 'comeback' impression is the best but the film's opening scene is not upto the mark and disappointed the audience.
Yet again, Megastar managed to leave his mark with his unmatched dancing skill. Like every time, his dance moves stood tall among all other aspects. And, more importantly, his looks has to be noted as he looked effortlessly good in both the varied roles. To some extent, dialogues offered great pleasure to the mega fans.
Fights are another prominent aspect to discuss. Chiru completely owned the skill and justified the role. Music scored by DSP managed to impress all and fanatic fans of Megastar went into frenzy with popular numbers "Ammadu Lets Do Kummudu" and "Rathalu".
Choreography and photography are average.
It is a visual feast for the fans watching Chiru and his son Ram Charan sharing screen space. Also, the costumes, handled by his elder daughter, are good.
Actor Kajal Aggarwal, who made a unique place in the Tollywood after accepting the offer, looked glamorous opposite Chiru as usual and reached expectations, despite not having much to do in the film. But their chemistry failed miserably.
The comic timing of ace actors Brahmanandam and Ali is very routine and there is nothing much to tickle your bones. Actor Prudhvi's role was not chopped off.
The second half is too lengthy and boring as well. And the climax also failed to leave its mark.
