Khiladi is a typical commercial entertainer that has gone wrong all the way. It’s an execution failure more than the story. Ravi Teja is usual self full of energy. But, there’s only so much he can do. The only aspects that live up to pre-release expectations (for masses) are the songs. They are too hot.
— Khiladi is coming to an end. Final report shortly.
— Attasuadake song has good dance choreography. The other heroine Meenakshi Chaudhary makes it a hot number.
— The way it is heading, the Director is totally clueless at this point.
— The reason why Khiladi goes to the prison is revealed.
— Khiladi second half started. Gandhi’s real story and why CBI is chasing him is being revealed.
First Half Report:
A large part of the first half of Khiladi is dedicated to comedy and romance which is below par. Some intrigue develops around the pre-interval mark when we get to actual story involving money. But, it leads to an even silliest interval sequence.
A lot depends on the second half now to recover Khiladi.
— Arjun Bhardawaj (Actor Arjun) enters the show as a strict CBI officer. The story takes a serious turn now. Ravi Teja needs to rescue Rao Ramesh from a serious trouble.
— Ravi Teja -Dimple’s lip-lock shot is placed in the hot mass number ‘Full Kick’ song. Dimple Hayathi does plenty of skin show in this song.
— It’s flashback time for Mohan Gandhi (Raviteja). He falls in love with Murali Sharma’s daughter Chitra (Dimple Hayathi) at first sight.
— Khiladi show started. Meenakshi Chaudhary, a psychology student helping her friend with a thesis on Gandhi (Ravi Teja) who is in jail for a family crime.
Khiladi Movie Review, US Premiere live updates will begin shortly. Stay tuned.
After an unexpectedly long break, Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja is back with a new outing Khiladi. He joins hands with his Veera director Ramesh Varma for the film.
Ravi Teja’s last outing Krack came a year ago for Sankranthi 2021. It turned out to be his career biggest hit despite the limitations at cinemas. He faces a similar situation now with Khiladi. It is a proper big-budget film after some gap and also comes at a time when cinemas are not entirely hundred percent allowed.
The promotions haven’t been up to the mark and the movie gives the impression of rushed release, still, Khiladi is getting decent books. It’s because the movie is a big screen mass affair. If it gets a positive talk, it would instantly grow in strength at the box office.
The grand making, casting with many known faces, glamorous heroines and production values are the main calling cards for Khiladi. They are enough to draw the masses in initially.
Ramesh Varma’s last outing Rakshasudu was well received. He would be hoping to repeat the same with Khiladi. Music director Devi Sri Prasad’s name and work will also be an integral factor in bringing the audience to theatres.
