Khaidi No 150 Movie Review:
At the center Khaidi No 150 is about the villagers who are unwilling to abandon their lands for an MNC company. A man takes stance on farmer’s behalf to fight and resolve their predicaments.
The film has guest appearances from son Ram Charan Tej and Choreographer Shekhar Master.
Chiranjeevi plays a dual role, one as a petty thief and the other being a social activist. The story starts with the thief’s escape from prison, Half-an-hour in the movie the protagonist finds himself in a village, where the farmers mistake him for Social activist who was fighting along with them for their lands, which are acquired illegally by an MNC company led by antagonist Tarun Arora. The farmers share their problems and issues, the thief can’t avoid but indulge in their soul-stirring story, and at the drop of a hat the thief roots emotionally in their legal quagmire, on the contrary, the real Social Activist is mistaken for the thief, is victimized for his illegal actions.
The film unfolds with predictable plots where the thief plans to override Tarun Arora’s intention and get the farmer’s land back. Nagendra Babu plays an inexorable judge in the film. The film takes off in the end, with a nicely executed court drama, where Chiranjeevi presents some cogent arguments in front of the judge.
Despite the makers have the liberty, didn’t opt for any creative changes from the original script, except an additional (forced) secondary plot to introduce Brahmanandam, which terribly fails to serve the purpose. The cinematography from Rathnavelu is vibrant feasible to the exaggerated plot and characters. Devi Sri Prasad back ground score will give you Goosebumps. Producer Ram Charan didn’t compromise on the budget of Father’s comeback film, production design by Thota Tharani is pitch-perfect to the minor details. Songs cutting the screenplay abruptly is pretty annoying. Khaidi No 150 definitely banks on the Star value of Chiranjeevi accumulating it with elevated octane action sequences and power packed dialogues.
