unexpected , cumbersome movie with some comedy
22 November 2010 | by (hyderabad) – See all my reviews

opening statement 3 years after the prince of tollywood has entered the silver screen with the magic combination of manisharma and trivikram srinivas.

khaleja is the title and despite controversies it stands apart as a wholesome entertainer with critical flaws.

the case a happy go taxi driver raj alias seethe Ram raj ( mahesh Bab ) turns into a Samaritan for a village with some unrevealing mysteries all around in the village. discovering the depth of the mystery and putting an end to the mystery is the case.

the fate having a simple story the movie of a taxi driver"s role is on the lighter side with all the troubles and achievements he gets. but the Samaritan part is on the serious side and requires lot of careful attention. even though the movie focuses the lighter side on maximum the Samaritan part is the just the driving factor for the movie goers. so the Samaritan role is what the audience will expect ..

evidence ace cinema dialog writer turned director has brought in a case to be solved by the protagonist. but the protagonist is a care free and light guy who does"NT care much. trivikram has etched the role of the protagonist in a casual way as he is a taxi driver. but suddenly one day protagonist realizes the fate of village without him and decides to help them and get a key to the mystery. the mystery is no deep as it is just a mix of all different stories put in one box of 150 minutes. mahesh has seamlessly performed and delivered dialogs to his best. heroine gives lot of trouble for the protagonist. her role is not etched well. prakash raj as the antagonist has been good and under utilized. shafi and rao ramesh are key persons for the village backdrop. they performed well. rest all came in and went. manisharma "s magic in music is not evident for all the numbers except 2 songs. anyhow the score in the crucial sequences were worth noting. editing is the fault in the movie. cinematography is good and worth mentioning. action sequences choreographed by ram and Heinz are to be mentioned specially with appreciation. entertainment value and humor has developed and this led to the back track of the fate to the movie.

what can be better editing is the major fault in the movie. the movie went very slow in the 2nd half and by the time the real story picked up audience has dropped their interest towards the screen and busy scratching their heads. etching the story of the movie in the last 20 minutes is good but already the unnecessary songs in the 2nd half middle and some unrelated scenes to the plot has developed the marginal chance for the audience to put interest towards the end. climax is the crux to the plot and it seemed like the movie ended abruptly with lot of questions left to be answered. with a godly message at the end the credits fall which makes the audience to leave the hall. in the end it is no special movie.

closing statement movie"s fate depends upon the fans and the likings of the audience. its a wholesome entertainer that can be watched once.
