This movie was a game-changer in the Telugu industry and made Chiranjeevi a mega star. The highlight of this movie, however, was the snake dance he does with Madhavi, entwining around each others body. Now use your imagination. See more »

Excellent Movie with Terrific Performance of Chiranjeevi
29 June 2016 | by slokesh-00210See all my reviews

Before watching khaidi I expected that heroism will be elevated just like in gangleader. But, I didn't feel giving any high on hero. But, the thing is director carried the emotion and the grip on the story till the end. Chiranjeevi did fantabulous... Sumalatha, Madhavi,Nuthana Prasadh, Rallapalli, Rao Gopalarao played a crucial role. I must appreciate director kondandarami reddy for giving our chiranjeevi such a huge hit. There are some flaws when we compared to the modern cinema. Some poor shots, but those are ignored when compared to the quality of story. Forgot to mention, writers Paruchuri Brothers did a fantastic work, with story and dialogues.
