'Khaidi No150' is one of the most awaited films this year being the re-entry of Megastar Chiranjeevi. Produced by Ramcharan, the movie has rich production values. Tagged with caption 'Boss is Back', the movie is definitely a good comeback for Chiru with all the elements needed by his fans. He did dual roles and has performed well in both of them. He looked younger and did very well in action sequences and dances in the songs. Kajal is the lead actress and has nothing much to do with the story and is limited to songs in the movie. Other actors in the movie did well. However, the comedy tracks of brahmanandam, Posani, Prudhvi are not much impressive. They, along with the songs actually disturbed the pace of the movie. Nagababu played a small role and Lakshmi Rai too did an item song.
Vinayak managed to narrate the story keeping the expectations of Chiru's fans in mind and somehow lost his grip as the movie progresses. Comedy tracks added to the script actually didn't help but reduced the seriousness required by the plot. Screenplay in the second half was pale and the climax rushed. Cinematography by Rathnavelu is excellent. Dialogues are good. Songs are good but were placed abruptly. Background score is good. Editing could have been better and many scenes could have been chopped like Posani's sequence and Prudhvi's sequence.
Overall, the movie has many pleasing moments for Chiranjeevi's fans. With a good cause in the story, the movie could have been a blockbuster if the second half of the movie was narrated better. Yes, he is back but misses the impact expected.
Not so good comedy
