Khiladi Movie Review and Rating!

Star hero Ravi Teja and director Ramesh Varma’s Khiladi is carrying good expectations among the audience. Also starring Dimple Hayathi and Meenakshi Chaudhary as the female leads, the movie has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it fares.

Story: Set in a money laundering backdrop, the film revolves around ten thousand crores of missing money. How is Mohan Gandhi (Ravi Teja) interlinked with the entire setup? What is the role of a CBI officer Arjun Bharadwaja(Arjun) in the plotline? Forms the main USB of the film.

Performances: Ravi Teja is back with his amazing screen presence. His ease in acting and energetic dialogue delivery brings life to the film.

Actor Arjun did a good job in the given role as a CBI officer. His confrontation episodes with Ravi Teja are executed on a decent note.

Heroines Dimple Hayathi and Meenakshi Chaudhary have provided enough eye candy feast with their amazing skinny show in the movie. Noted artists like Anasuya, Murali Sharma, Vennala Kishore has no scope to perform in the poorly designed characters. Malayalam actor Unni Mukunda is also wasted as his role lacks proper impact.

Technicalities: Surprisingly, music by Devi Sri Prasad lacks freshness. While his songs look outdated, the background score is dull and fails to create an impact.

The cinematography work by Sujith Vaassudev and GK Vishnu is good as it elevates a chase shot in Italy nicely. A few action blocks are also showcased on a stylish note.

While editing by Amar Reddy fails to register, the production values for this actioner are lavish.

Analysis: Ramesh Varma directs Khiladi. Though his idea of making a thriller by interlinking the money laundering activity as the key aspect is good but his narration falls flat with routine template scenes and outdated treatment.

Adding to it, a most wanted criminal escaping from central jail with just a forgery signature looks silly. Though a couple of scenes that are interconnected with the technology are executed on a decent note, the audience will be left with no clue on what is happening with the proceedings.

To summerize, Khiladi is an unengaging thriller that has no proper presentation and racy scene order. While Ravi Teja’s energetic screen presence is a plus for the film, rest all elements dilute the movie and test the audience patience.

Verdict: Skip it!

Rating: 2/5
