Khiladi Movie Details

Khiladi is a 2022 Indian Telugu-language action drama film[4] written and directed by Ramesh Varma who co-produced it with Satyanarayana Koneru under A Studios. The film stars Ravi Teja alongside Arjun Sarja, Unni Mukundan, Meenakshi Chaudhary, and Dimple Hayathi. Initially scheduled to be released on 28 May 2021, it was indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India. Soundtrack and score of the film is composed by Devi Sri Prasad. Released theatrically along with a Hindi dubbed version on 11 February 2022, the film received negative reviews from critics and underperformed at the box office.

Khiladi Movie Review

Have you ever seen that cute video of a golden retriever puppy being distracted by everything it sees around it? Khiladi, directed by Ramesh Varma, is the film equivalent. The issue is that Khiladi is neither adorable nor particularly interesting. The screenplay is so disjointed that you have to wonder if any of it ever made sense, at least on paper. And you know you’re in trouble when even the ‘twists,’ mass tunes, and comedic/punch dialogues it has in abundance get redundant.

Mohan Gandhi (Ravi Teja) is introduced as a wanted criminal who is currently serving time for a crime he may or may not have committed. Pooja (Meenakshi Chaudhary) is a criminologist who wishes to base her dissertation on Gandhi’s case. He is said to have murdered his lovely little family, which included his wife Chitra (Dimple Hayathi) and in-laws (Anasuya Bharadwaj, Murli Sharma). The only survivor of this tragedy is a youngster who appears to be fond of her allegedly deadly father. “Colour me interested,” Pooja says right away, as her rescuer syndrome kicks in and she decides she will go to any length to get this man out of jail. What she doesn’t realize is that there’s a far broader game at work.

Ramesh Varma attempts an Abbas-Mastan with Khiladi, in which he fills the picture with incomprehensible language, plot twists that make no logical sense, attractive women shimmying to tunes, and a general emphasis on style over substance. He hopes you have a good time watching Gandhi play the titular ‘khiladi’ while CBI officer Arjun Bharadwaj (Arjun Sarja), police officer Jayaram (Sachin Khedekar), Home Minister Guru Singham (Mukesh Rishi), crooks David (Thakur Anoop Singh) and Bala Singham (Nikitin Dheer) trail him like clowns. Unni Mukundan also appears in this story as a co-convict named Ramakrishna, but the less said about his narrative, the better. But none of this occurs. And at the heart of it all is a container containing an exorbitant amount of money brought in from Italy, which everyone is attempting to locate. Meah!

The film is hampered by a terrible narrative, CGI, and songs created by Devi Sri Prasad that do not pass muster and serve primarily to (a) interrupt the ongoing story and (b) show off how lovely Dimple and Meenakshi are (we already know, no need to objectify them just for that). On-screen, the cosmetics department makes everyone’s skin look terrible. The only element that works is the interval bang, and as the picture develops, the run-time becomes a nuisance. A story like Khiladi required more deft writing, not to mention a hook point that piqued your interest in the first place. Even the much-touted action sequence shot in another country isn’t all that exciting.

Ravi Teja manages to impart charm to a character who lacks it. He breezes through his job, even though it’s strange (and unsettling) to see him romancing ladies plainly much younger than him. Dimple, Meenakshi, and Anasuya are cast in roles that allow them to shine, but the director continues deviating from the script to have them belly dance in sequined shorts or play the supporting but cool sidekick. These ladies were deserving of better. The rest of the cast, including Rao Ramesh and Vennela Kishore, make an appearance. After all was said and done, Khiladi needed to be as self-aware as it is in the final action sequence with Arjun and Gandhi. Some good writing could have also rescued the day.
