Khaidi No.150: Chiranjeevi, aiming to bring back the aura, sticked to remake the Tamil movie Katthi which was a runaway hit. VV Vinayak took charge of directing him and was equally desperate to prove his mettle again. RamCharan’s responsibility as a producer added a new role for him.
Megastar’s action knew no bounds. What a man he is!! he kept the viewers awestruck with his unmatchable dance steps and high energy levels. His unique style and mannerisms still holds the charisma in it. Kajal was roped in to add the required glamour but she became the snag.
Ali, Brahmi, Jayaprakash Reddy as the supporting crew were alright. Tarun Arora as the prime antagonist tried his best. Musiq by DSP was the saving grace atleast as some of the songs were already chartbusters. Background musiq was also impressive. Ratthalu and Ammadu Kummudu were the dance numbers and though this was not the best of Chiru’s dances, it was undeniably an eyefeast for fans after an extensive break. Cinematography by Rathnavelu was good. Some of the dialogues were very impassioned.
One of them goes like this. Lunch Break lo disturb cheyaddu ani teleda…meku aa lunch vastunde Raithula valla ani marchipoyara sir… There are few more to cherish.
First half of the movie has got nothing new to offer except for many predictable scenes. Hero introduction scene also couldn’t match his standards. Though second half has got few catchy scenes, the damage was already done paving the way to formulaic climax. Similar kind of story has been retold several times and hence the screenplay could’ve been more exciting.
Chiru is evidently flawless as the Telugu Industry Megastar, but the movie comes as a bane for him. Boss is back, but without a bang. He needs to wait for his so called 151st movie to secure a super hit.
On one note, go for Chiru.
Please watch it in theaters…KILL PIRACY….
