Khaleja Review: Do Critics Like Dad Mahesh Babu's New Movie?ToniFitz76
“Khaleja” review roundup: What did critics say in their “Khaleja” movie reviews? The new movie, starring former child actor Mahesh Babu, a father of one, and Prakash Raj, is directed by Trivikram Srinivas and was released today. But critics don’t seem to be quite as enthusiastic as they were about Raji’s “Endhiran” last week.
This is the second film that Mahesh and Trivikram have worked on together. In this one, Mahesh plays the good guy, a cab driver, who gets mixed up in a world of murder and assassinations after the death of his close friend; Prakash is the villain. Shooting on the film was shut down for a period while Mahesh was ill.
Did that affect the movie’s quality? Critics have criticized the editing and the slowness of the first half of the film, though overall they say it’s worth seeing.
“Medicore editing. Second half could have been much better than expected….totally the movie is above average,” writes Telugu Wave’s Ruchita.
“Two Songs choreographed by Ahmad khan is good. But overall, movie is average movie like his previous Arjun movie,” writes Chitramala.
“Its Mahesh’s One man show movie with good comedy. The movie is very good in parts but a slow second half will have effect on the movie. Overall the movie can be an above average grosser in Mahesh’s career as per preview talk,” writes musicking on AP36.com.
One thing no one doubts: The music from the movie is awesome. The soundtrack is definitely worth the money.
