Here is the Khaidi No 150 Movie Review:
In a Country like India, farmers are reckoned to be the backbone of India are committing suicides as they are unable to cope with crop losses and payments to the banks. Though it is being neglected by the politicians, director V.V. Vinayak succeeded in highlighting the same concept in “Khaidi No 150,” which is the Tamil remake of “Kaththi” directed by A.R. Murugadoss. Blending all the elements in proper proportions, the dynamic director has successfully brought to the fore a very critical issue.
Right from its casting to the film’s teaser, trailer and songs have all escalated the euphoria and after the pre-release function ‘Boss Is Back Festival’, Chiru fever is gripped.

The story starts with a petty thief Kathi Seenu (Chiranjeevi) escapes from Kolkata central prison and he meets his friend-thief Mallik (Ali). As cops began to search for him, Seenu decides to fly off to Bangkok. But he drops his plan after falling for Lakshmi (Kajal Aggarwal) whom he meets in Airport. Unexpectedly, one day he meets his look alike Shankar (Chiranjeevi again in a dual role,) who meets with an accident and Seenu admits him in a hospital. Shankar is a post-graduate and wants to help farmers in his village and in that regard he fights with an MNC, owned by (Tarun Arora.) In the meantime, knowing that police have upped the hunt, Seenu decides to step into the shoes of Shankar to protect himself. What forms rest is who is Shankar? Who tried to kill him and why? How Seenu tackles the things that come in the way?
Chiru offers a double treat as both mass (Kathi Seenu) and class ( K Shankar). His larger-than-life persona helps him to pull off both the roles with ease. The film seems to be tailor-made for Chiru. Chiru’s acting was flawless. He has taken the film on his shoulders and it is a one man army. Kajal Aggarwal has given her best and the chemistry between the duo is fantabulous. Though there is a huge age gap between the duo, they both look perfect together on-screen. Tarun Arora also gave a fine performance as an antagonist. Brahmanandam gets some respite as his role is okay compared to his previous films. He tickles the funnybone of theaudience. Other actors Posani Murali, Ali, Prudhvi Raj gave their best in their respective roles. The special cameo of Ram Charan in “Ammadu Let’s Do Kummudu,” song will make fans go berserk. Actress Raai Laxmi, who did a special song in the film is simply amazing. Though she is there for a short time, she stole the show.
The film is definitely a big feast for the audience, as Chiranjeevi has played a dual role, which are completely different from one another. As a sedate social activist and fun loving thief, he performed well. The director has packed the story with strong punch dialogues, emotional scenes, comedy and romance from the beginning to the end. The first and second halves are fantastic with the terrific performance of Chiranjeevi and the pre-climax is going to be the highlight of the film. Though the sense of humour has missed a little bit, the senior comedians tried their best to entertain the audience. The major highlight of the film is Chiru’s peculiar dance moves for the tunes of Rockstar Devi Sri Prasad, which already have become overnight chart busters. They made the fans go crazy and mad in the theaters. Rathnavelu’s cinematography needs special mention and the fights composed by Ram Laxman has set a trend for the future movies. The dialogues penned by Paruchuri brothers will give goosebumps to the audience. The pre-interval episodes are heart-touching. Director Vinayak did a great job here. Shankar’s role is that stands out in the whole movie and “Neeru Neeru” song gave life to the screenplay in a whole.
Few comedy scenes failed to tickle the funny bones
V.V. Vinayak has made proper use of Chiranjeevi’s potential and delivered a Paisa Vasool commercial film. This will definitely entertain the audience and they will go gaga over him after watching it. One of the best movies of Chiranjeevi and strongly recommended.
