Megastar Chiranjeevi is back to the big screen after a huge gap of more than nine and half years, with his new film, Khaidi No:150. The expectations were sky high on this film and fans couldn’t wait to watch their demi-god on screen after such a long time. Did it reach the expectations? Read our review here:

Synopsis:

Kaththi Seenu (Chiranjeevi) is a small-time thief who escapes from jail by cheating the cops. After coming back to Hyderabad, he discovers that there is also a look alike of him, called K. Shankar (Chiranjeevi). Shankar is a social reformer who fights to stop the construction of a beverages factory in the agricultural land.

Due to some circumstances, Seenu is mistaken as Shankar and he was forced to step into Shankar’s shoes. At first, he was not at all bothered by the issue but later, he realizes his mistake and turns savior for the farmers. What did he do then? What happened to Shankar? To know these answers, watch the film.

Performances:

Talent has no time limit, neither the devotion. This line would be perfect to describe both Megastar Chiranjeevi and his fans. Though it has been almost a decade since he made a film, he neither lost that energy, grace, and charisma nor his fans stopped worshipping him. This film is solely handled by Chiru. His power packed performance takes the film to next level. His acting is top notch in the role of Shankar. Kajal is good in her not so important role. Tarun Arora impresses as the antagonist. Ali keeps you entertained as Chiru’s friend. Rest all did justice to their roles.

Technical and overall analysis:

When the film was announced, everyone wondered why Chiru is choosing a remake subject to make his comeback. But both Ram Charan and VV Vinayak believed that this will be the apt script for Megastar and they were right. This is a tailor-made role for Chiru. VV Vinayak did pure justice to original film Kaththi. He made few changes but they didn’t spoil the content of the film. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is good, but people expected much more from him. Ratnavelu’s cinematography was excellent. Both Editing and production values are good.

The first half of the film starts on a funny note, then moves on to emotional flashback and ends with powerful interval block. The second half of the film deals with how Chiru saved the lives of those farmers. Overall, the film is a treat to every Telugu movie goer. A special mention should go to Chiru’s dance. He just makes everyone flattered with his gracious dance moves. On the whole, this will be a pure festive weekend for all the audience.

One-line verdict:

Boss is back with a bang

Rating: 3.5/5
