Who is Shankar? What is his story? How Kaththi Seenu fights Shankar's issues? form the rest of the story.
Khaidi No 150 - Star Performance
Chiru is the center of attraction because he is doing this movie after 10years of gap. He is awesome with his dances and dialogues. The overall performance of Chiru is beyond the expectations. Kajal did a fantastic job. Especially in songs Chiru is too good with Kajal. Lakshmi Roy show in Rathalu song is a feast for the mass audience. Cherry's dance in Lets do Kummudu song is a special attraction. Tarun Arora who had acted in Choodalani Undhi is stylish and shows cruel angle in his role. Ali is very good as Chiru's friend and Brahmi's role will spread some laughs.
Khaidi No 150 - Technical Team
Story written by A R Murugadoss is superb. DSP songs are very good. DSP does magic with his mass beats. Rathalu, let's do kummud and Sundari songs shows mass beat where NEERU song is emotionally touching. Devi is fantastic with RR. There is nothing to point out in Ratnavelu's cinematography. Parochoori Brothers, Vema Reddy, Burra Saimadhav dialogues, comedy, action and emotions all are very well balanced. Editing of senior editor Goutham Raju is very good even though the run time is a bit lagging. The production values are fabulous as Ram Charan did fantastic job as producer for his very first movie.
Khaidi No 150 - Analysis
There are sky high expectations on Khaidi 150 as it is a comeback movie for Megastar into movies and also as a story which was proven in Tamil. Khaidi 150 is packed with such elements in which Megastar can prove himself again and tickle audience. First half of the movie is fun ride with emotional story of Shankar and well choreographed songs and action sequences. These all make us have a glance at vintage Megastar. Screenplay is mostly engaging except for forced comedy scenes. Second half is more on action and emotional content when compared to first half. This half seems to be dragged a little, but covered by the flow of the film. Climax is a bit disappointing as the humor injected is diluting the emotion. Director V V Vinayak has done fabulous job in handling Megastar and burden his image carries. This movie is like full meals for hungry Mega fans and enjoyable fun and emotional ride for normal audience.
