Khakee Review & Rating
Khakee Review & Rating

Khakee is the latest Telugu action thriller film written and directed by Vinod who earlier made the super hit film Sattu Ranga Vittai. S.R.Prakash babu and S.R.Prabhu who head the Dream Warrior Pictures banner are the producers of the film. 

The story of the film is said to be based on the true events where Karthi is playing the role of a DSP and Rakul Preet Singh is seen as his wife. The film is the dubbed version of Theerum Adhigaram Ondru and lets us check out the review of the film here.


Dheeraj (Karthi) is a police officer who's happily living with his wife Priya (Rakul Preet). He gets a good name in the industry as an encounter specialist. As the days are passing by, Dheeraj comes across a challenging case which turns his life upside down.

What is the case about? How did he solve it? Forms the rest of the story of the movie.


The performances in the movie are the best. Everyone liked the way the roles were shaped out. The characterisation was interesting and especially Karthi outstand in the role of a cop. Rakul Preet Singh also performed well and she looked sexy throughout the movie. Along with both of them, the supporting cast did really well. Abhimanyu Singh is a talented actor who has got a good role in the film. 

There are a lot of other actors in the film who are not very familiar with the Telugu audiences but still they made their presence felt with the performance and their limited roles came out well. Narra Srinivas role is good and he impressed with his Tamil debut. The rest of the actors made their presence felt.

Technical Aspects:

Technically the film looks grand. The camera work is exceptional and the cinematographer Satyan Suryan's framing is excellent. The editing by Shiva Nandeeswaran is good and his scene transitions are impressive. The music by Ghibran is okay and his background score also came out well.

The runtime of the film is less and we are sure that the film is going to become one of the best films in recent times both in terms of technical aspects and production values.

Khakee is one of the intense suspense dramas based on true incidents. Not many films will depict the real incidents in the way the makers did in the film Khakee. Technically the film is top notch. The breath taking action sequences will surely impress everyone. When compared with the first half, the second half appears dragged. 

The performances are great and the songs appear as speed breakers. Karthi who has impressed everyone all these days with family entertainers and romantic entertainers has changed his style with this action entertainer. On a whole the film appears great for all the action lovers. Dont miss it.
