Thoughts On Mega Star Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No150 | Boss Is Back | by Rayarao Sriram

I know I'm already late, but here I'm writing down my thoughts on Mega Star Chiranjeevi's Khaidi No 150. Usually, I write this on the day one itself but I am late and finally here's my first on this year and starting off with Boss' film.

Khaidi No 150 - An official remake of Tamil Blockbuster Kaththi

Since the time, the remake announcement was made, many people expressed their opinions about the film's end result. I am somehow sure that Khaidi No 150 will become a big hit with everyone associated with the project is an expert in making Successful Commercial Cinema. And it has come true too! So, here are my thoughts on the film.

Let me start it with Mega Star Chiranjeevi! The man who kept every genuine movie lover waiting for almost a decade is back with a bang. Chiranjeevi worked very hard and he was successful in making all of us believe that he is not 61 and age is just a number. At the age of 61. the commitment and dedication he showed in playing the dual roles of the film is highly commendable. As Kaththi Seenu and K Shankar, Chiranjeevi is excellent on screen. While I liked Kaththi Seenu in parts, I fell in love with K Shankar character. As VV Vinayak said, Chiranjeevi is looking much younger and handsome than what he was a decade back, I found it to be an accurate statement. Whatte Screen Presence and What a performance he has brought in to entertain the audiences. Excellent Stuff!

Honestly writing, I failed to see any strong character in the film. Both Kaththi Seenu and K Shankar appeared normal. The transformation of Kaththi Seenu is convincing, but there is hardly any Kaththi Seenu left in the movie as most of the time we can see Chiranjeevi as K Shankar alone! The behaviour or the character of Kaththi Seenu was not established correctly as we can see no big differences between both the characters and they behave in a similar manner while delivering dialogues or while being emotional. This might go well when both of them are twins, but when they are two different persons, I expect two separate shades and two different variations for the character. Though both Kaththi Seenu and K Shankar finally come closer in behaviour, in the end, they should at least show some difference in character behaviours from the beginning. I felt it that way.!

From the beginning, I was sure that the female lead in the film would be just another character who would get the scope to dance in songs and smile (sometimes cry) in scenes. There is really nothing significant to mention that Kajal did well in the film, but the fact is that she looked beautiful and added glamour to the screen. The main antagonist Tarun Arora appeared expressionless to me! VV Vinayak said that Tarun has got a fresh face and that is the reason he cast the actor in the film. But the director failed to look at the dubbing aspect for this villain. That routine voice for the villain brought no freshness to the character. I felt young actors like Nandoo, Aadi Pinisetty or any other Telugu actor would have given an opportunity for the villain role which might have brought complete freshness to the character. Or, the makers would have at least made an experiment with dubbing for the villain like they added Hema Chandra voice for Aravind Swamy in Dhruva. This Tarun Arora never actually looked powerful or scary in the film, and I always knew that he is going to lose in the hands of our commercial hero.

I watched Kaththi long back before this remake announcement was made. Almost, Vinayak has followed the original and executed the same for the Telugu version. There are not really any significant changes for the Telugu version. Even that would sometimes help for becoming a big hit. While everyone has doubt that why these people chose a remake, Vinayak in a recent interview answered in a single line. "We want a HIT." There are no other reasons to remake Kaththi, and they are sure that they want a HIT. The first half an hour of the film Khaidi No150 is pretty average as it progressed as per the super successful Telugu commercial film formula. After that, when K Shankar entered the screen, it is completely a different movie. The way that particular part was executed and the way Chiranjeevi performed is outstanding! I wish there were no breaks (unnecessary and forced comedy track which hardly made me laugh) in the film's emotional flow. The fights and songs are also a part of the formula which was taken extra care for the fans. Chiranjeevi is fab in all the songs dancing like a young guy. I am sure many young guys would also fail to match him who is 61. What a grace Bossuuu!!! The songs in the second half are really like speed breakers but even before I could tell this to me, Chiranjeevi's presence on screen made me forget that complaint.

Technically, the film is grand! The writing is Decent. The cinematography is excellent. DSP's background score reminded me of Anirudh's in Kaththi. I wish DSP either tried something new or copied Anirudh's. The film unit of Khaidi No 150 played a very safe game by not doing any experiments. But they could have done some experiment to make Khaidi No 150 an excellent film when compared to the original. To keep it simple, I 'liked' the film except for that boring comedy track.

Chiranjeeeviiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.. Bossuuuuuuuuu, U r Backkuuuuuuuuuuuu


Now, I sincerely wish that Chiranjeevi start playing the roles of his age. 150 films. Numerous Blockbusters and Many Super Hits. Chiranjeevi did all that he could do and achieved Mega Star Position in the film industry. There is nothing that he can prove now. So, I request him to start doing content/subject driven subjects more from now. That would be really great!

What If Chiranjeevi appears in a role like this? Chiranjeevi being a part of a honest and realistic story as a character!! I wish that happen..

Ram Charan and Chiranjeevi like this!!! ↓↓ #VeryNatural #NoArtificial
