Movie starts in jail which is located in Kolkata, West Bengal. Chiru as Kathi Sreenu introduced here with some mass looks. Sreenu is trying to escaping from jail and police are trying to catch him out. But actually he is helping police to catch Khaidi no 620 who escaped from jail just before few minutes. Finally he catch that 620 khaidi and he escaped from police . Sreenu came to Hyderabad to meet Malli (Ali) who is a thief here. It’s time for the first song Rattalu. Chiru is showing some good moves here. Sreenu decided to shift from India to Bangkok and went to Airport. There he saw Lakshmi(Kajal Agarwal) who is a girl came to Airport to give send off to her sister and asked him for pen. He thought that she is his childhood friend named Subbalakshmi and asked her about the same. She replied that she is not that person and because of Sreenu pressure she gave a wrong number to him .
One day Sreenu and Malli going on road , collector stopped his car and asked them to collect the Cheque of Rupees 25 lakhs at Mother Teresa Old-age Home. Sreenu decided to collect that Cheque and escape from India. Actually collector thought that he is Shankar(Second Chiru ) who is a fighter for farmers welfare. One day he saw that some people injured Shankar badly on road and he joined him in hospital and exchange his articles with his ones . Kolkata police take back to Kolkata jail by thinking he is Sreenu.. It’s time for second song Sundari . Brahmi entered as Dabar . These comedy scenes are bit boring. When collector handed over the Cheque to Sreenu one farmer tare it out and asked the collector to help in developing the Shankar innovation. Collector told to Sreenu that he will prepare another Cheque and handover on Lions club Press meet. That day has came and those people just played one video on Shankar life. Shankar is from one small village named Niruru which is located in Rayalaseema. Time for third song Niru Niru , good execution. He discovered a machine that which it will find out where the ground water is. But some people behind him tie up with corporate company and leaked the information to them. They killed some people who is having lands in that area and told Shankar that they already sold their lands to them before 6 months only. Shankar find out how they got killed and felt very sad. One journalist from that village told to farmers that you all have to do some thing to attract national media to expose your problems. So some of them decided to commit suicide and record the same video and handover to national media channels. This became sensation and whole India looked at that village now. Sreenu felt very bad for what he did and he decided to continue shankar role by doing justice to those farmers. Before he came to this meeting he took some huge amount of cash from some corporate to move out from India. He went back to them and returned the money to them. They send goons to Mother Teresa old age home and injured all those old people. Sreenu went there and good fight happened here. This interval shot is pictured well.
It’s time for interval break. Overall first half is OK . Till now Khaidi no 150 just copied each and every scene from Katthi movie . In one word copy paste first half. Chiru one man show made us watch one time.
Second half started with some boring scenes. Kajal Agarwal fells in love with Sreenu . It’s time for fourth song and these scenes are becoming speed breakers for the movie. This song is Disturbing the story flow . Villain Tarun Aurora buy one person from commission reporting team to give notice in favour of him. But Sreenu warns them in style and made it not happening. He simply changed the commission report in favour of village people and he gain first victory on Aurora. This made Aurora angry and send many goons by telling to to kill Sreenu inside old-age home only. Here comes the most awaited Coin fight scene and Chiru manages it well. In the mean while innocent Chiru (Shankar) escaped from prison. Case came to court and court says that youngsters from village demanded factory and in this case it will favours MNC company only. Sreenu tried to gather the support from city people and media but they avoid it as no value news. So he decided to make some thing big to attract their attention. He take the blue print of Hyderabad city and decided to block the water supply to the city . So that media will give coverage on this issue. On one fine day he with old people sat inside the pipes which are supplying water to whole Hyderabad. Water board intimated to police about the same and the news spread to media also. Days are going on and city people struggled for water and they became panic with this issue. They became anger on Chiru and old people. In the meanwhile innocent Chiru surrenders in front of police and Tarun Aurora kidnaps him from police. Till now everyone including villain thought that there is one Chiru and he is with him. But when he saw second Chiru came from pipes he shocked and came to know that there are two guys with same face. Shankar explains the situation to media and people and request them to support him . Huge positive response came from media and people in favour of village people. Aurora called to Sreenu and told that shankar is with him. He warns to take signatures in favour of MNC and submit the same to him. Sreenu did the same and went to Aurora to release Shankar . Time for climax fight with loads of action. Some comedy scenes dragged the second half and disturbed the flow of the movie. Second half is just OK . Songs and comedy are the main negative things in second half. Overall movie is a average one. For fans this will be a feast and for common audience it’s just a okay one. Some cameo roles will surprise in this movie. Mega brother Nagababu as Judge, Vinayak with one dialogue and Charan,DSP in Ammadu Kummudu song are sudden surprises in this movie.
Technical Department :
DSP back ground music is the main asset of this movie. He just rocked the BGM with his rocking tunes. Camera work is good. Paruchuri brothers pen work is awesome. Vinayak failed to take care of screen play. He just copy and paste the original version with some useless comedy scenes .
Positive Points :
– Chiru acting
– Action Scenes
Negative Points :
Final verdict : Please skip if you watch Original Version
