Khaidi No. 150 movie Review
Khaidi No 150 plot revolves around two look-alikes who forced to swap places and eventually fight for a mission. Chiranjevi(Kaththi Seenu) is a petty thief, who escapes from Kolkata central jail, and comes to a village along with his friend Ali. Seenu then comes across Shankar (Chiranjeevi) a communist and social activist who is fighting for a group of villagers in a remote village whose agricultural land is being illegally taken over by a Multi-national Soft Drinks Company heads by Tarun Arora. Seenu decides to swipe his identity with Shankar and joins the hands of the old men from an old age home bring managed by Shankar. And Shankar lands in jail for being identical with Seenu. Soon, Seenu realizes who actually Shankar is and changes his attitude and mend his ways to fight for the cause of Shankar and support the people behind the name of Shankar. Who is Shankar? What is his story? How Kaththi Seenu accomplishes the task left by Jeeva forms the rest.
Megastar Chiranjeevi who commands humongous fan base and expectations is delight to watch on screen for his acting. Chiru showed a brilliant variety as Kaththi Seenu and Shankar. Needless to say, he is mighty impressive in songs, fight sequences and his effortless comic sense adds to the charm. Kajal Agarwal has minimal screen presence, with songs being her forte. Tarun Arora fits the bill perfectly as a chairman of an MNC. Ali, Brahmanandam, Posani are good in their respected roles. Rai Lakshmi sizzles in Ammadu Kummudu song.
VV Vinayak has remained faithful to the original story, but has made some minor changes in the screenplay to suit the taste of Telugu filmgoers. Some comedy and romance scenes keep the viewers entertained in the first half. The story gets serious in the second half. Eevi Sri Prasad came up with good album and his background score is apt in elevating the emotion of scenes. Rathnavelu’s cinematography is superb and he has done magic with his knack of capturing fine visuals in a eye catching manner. Editing by Gowtham Raju is perfect. Songs are well choreographed and Action sequences are good and well composed. Production values are apt and rich.
