Khiladi (2022) Film Star Cast Performance Analysis:
Ravi Teja who is also known as Mass Maharaj in the South Indian Industry is famous for being an entertainer and his over the top dialogue delivery as well as fighting and romance scenes. There is no shortage of that in Khiladi as well . But the problem is that he star is that Ravi Teja in Khiladi has given a slight variation where he showcased a completely different side. Be it the ‘dancing part’ in Disco Raja or the angrier persona in Krack, so on are some of the examples. In Khiladi, Ravi Teja gets to play an additional over the top person.
Now lets imagine a situation where Ravi Teja is already too much energetic and but director added another layer to his over the top typical style in the film and that another layer has ruined all the fun. In some parts of the movie he comes acrosss as doing overacting and this is not a good thing as it takes away all the fun.
Both the young actresses, Dimple Hayathi and Meenakshi Chaudhary were utilized to the fill up the glamorous quotient (a lot of body show), Dimple has done a slightly better job as part of the story. But still we can definitely say that both the actresses have done a fine job as far as their respective roles are concerned.
Rest of the star cast which includes Mukesh Rishi, Unni Mukundan, Rao Ramesh, Sachin Khedekar etc have given average performance as director has not given them enough screen time to develop their character properly.
