Khaidi no 150 Artist performances:
Mega star chiranjeevi come back with his grace full performance.In flash back episode the performance of chiranjeevi is impressive with his emotion.only screen presence helped to pull the audience.
Tarun arora is not up to the mark and villainism not elevated much as original movie.kajal is just for glamour performance.Bramhanandam comedy is hard to watch and he is not at all necessary for the movie.remaining actors given performance is just ok.
Khaidi no 150 Techincal aspects:
Producer Ram Charan has provided best technicians to his dad’s comeback movie.most popular cinematographer Ratnavelu ropes for the cinematography and the visual part of the movie good and captured well in flash back episodes. Art director thota tharani work is good.
production value is good.Dsp music and Back ground is not upto the mark.Dance and fights are some what fitted for chiru.

Khaidi no 150 Analysis:
Director murugadoss who is director of kaththi narrates the story with different pace of screenplay and cast vijay as a lead and gets huge block buster in tamil language and make good records in vijay’s career.
For the come back movie , chiranjeevi selected this script and made some changes for telugu nativity.director vinayak selected for this remake,because he already made ramana tamil movie as tagore scripted by murugudoss and made it as huge hit in boxoffice.
But this time vinayak fails remaking kaththi and made it as a just commericial formulic entertainer by loosing emotional content in this movie.first half of the movie goes well in chiru aspects.but in second half he totally leave the emotional content and made it as a regular commericial flick to satisfy fans.
Biggest flaw is adding bramahanandam in the movie and it will effect entire second half and comedy spoils the subject of the movie.massive moments especially coin fight and pre climax dialogue and climax not materialised well and this loose whole emotional content.we dont know why he used bramhi in coin fight.he effects this massive fight episode and spoils the massive moments.dialogue episode and last fight is not written well and captured well.he leaves all massive moments in second half, villain warning scene,pipeline scene etc.,only flash back made well.On whole the movie changed as old vinayak and fails showing basic plot.
Khaidi no 150 Bottom line:
If your mega fan watch it for chiranjeevi. if your telugu audience watch it as just come back for chiru. if your hardcore emotional movie lover and already watched in tamil version leave this movie. it won’t satisfy you.
