Karthi New Movie Khaidi Review
Hero Karthi’s intense drama, Khaidi has been carrying a decent buzz among the audience. Being directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film was hit the screens today.
In order to kill a group of five cops, who seize crores worth of drugs, a drug-dealing gang targets the police intelligence office with the help of an informer. They supply drugs based liquor to a private police party. To rescue them an officer named Vijay (Narain) takes the help of a just-released prisoner Delhi (Karthi). Will the officer be able to save his mate’s life? who is Delhi and what is his backstory? How will Delhi go all out to help the police? forms the rest of the story.
The cinematography by Sathyan Sooryan is top-notch as he canned the film in the night-mood effect nicely. The framing and camers lighting has been used with a perfect texture. Editing work by Philomin Raj is okay but he will have chopped close to ten minutes of the first half to make things more appealing.
Music is by Sam C S was engaging as his background score works largely and breaths life into the second half. The film has no songs so there is no need to discuss the topic. Coming to director Lokesh Kanagaraj, he is one of the talents to look out for.
Karthi’s acting in the intense scenes is impressive. His performance, expression and body language and mind-blowing. He deserves a lot of applause for his wonderful performance in Khaidi.
Khaidi is a serious and dark crime drama that impresses its target audience. Karthi’s makeover and director Lokesh’s taking will be loved by those who enjoy serious crime drama.
