Khiladi Movie Review
Italy has sent India a massive sum of two thousand crores. It will be used tactically to elevate the incumbent Home Minister to the position of Chief Minister of the state. How Gandhi (Ravi Teja), a regular family man with a child, get embroiled in such a bizarre predicament. Why is he being pursued by the CBI? The premise of the film revolves around what transpires to him and his family in the end.
Ravi Teja is a performer, and there is usually an undertone entertainment element for him in which he acts in his own style. It’s the same here, and we see it for the most part. Apart from that , the celebrity is granted a little change that allows him to show off a new side of himself. Some examples include Disco Raja’s ‘dance side’ or Krack’s angrier image, among others. Ravi Teja gets a role in Khiladi as a second over-the-top character. Consider a scenario in which Ravi Teja is already effervescent and outgoing in his usual manner. And he’ll have to boost the ante even more to make a point. This can be seen, as the final result is far from good, as there is far too much overreaction. The director is to blame for not properly etching the character, but in the end, the hero is the one who does it, and he shares the blame. As a result, Khiladi is a forgettable role for the celebrity.
Story and Review:
In the brief jail sequence, Khiladi opens on an intriguing note. It creates the impression that we shall be treated to a storyline that isn’t typical. However, we are quickly jerked back to commercial reality with the next hour’s worth of family drama, humour, and romance. It would have been nice if the humour or romance had worked, but both of them failed miserably. The true objective of all of these scenes appears to be visual titillation. Through the exposure, we can see this intensified in the songs.
It would have been nice if the humour or romance had worked, but both of them failed miserably. The true objective of all of these scenes appears to be visual titillation. Through the exposure, we can see this intensified in the songs. We have some suspenseful moments in between all of these repetitive stuff. It keeps them interested and gives them hope that something huge is on the way. During the pre-interval, hopes are boosted by injecting money back into the system for a limited time. We finally believe that a spectacular trip is about to begin, but our dreams are shattered by the ridiculous intermission that follows
In the second part of the film, Khiladi’s genuine dilemma emerges. In the first half, we get a glimpse of the problem, but it is exaggerated in the second hour. It’s a bloated plot with a bloated screenplay. The script has too many characters, subplots, and linked twists, according to director Ramesh Varma and his team. The folks in charge of the whole affair can give one the impression that they are clueless at times. It’s why, despite the fact that one is moving at a relatively fast pace, one feels weary.
Despite its quick pace and spectacular production, Khiladi is an overstuffed, over-the-top entertainer that challenges patience and kills interest. It’s one of those movies that runs off the rails a little too quickly and never recovers.
