Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Kho Kho is one of those rare films that is raw and real. Unfortunately, I myself didn’t a keen sports lover and we only played Kho Kho in our childhood. Most of us have played Kho Kho in our childhood days only. I must praise the director who took a big risk of making a movie like Kho Kho. After watching Kho Kho film I felt that I should know more about this game and even watch it on sports channel. That is the magic this film leaves on me and most probably on all of us. So, if you will watch Maria in this film, you will become her fan. I find Rajisha performance in this film very similar to Rani Mukerji’s Hichki. I know both films are completely different but does one thing to empower the life of students and give them wings to think big. This film is a sports drama and I literally cried at several occasions in this film. It is high on emotions and strong on content. The writing, story, screenplay and direction all are flawless here. Even the dialogues in this movie is keeping you at the edge of your seats. I liked Rijisha and Mamitha performance a lot.
Kho Kho movie screenplay, story, direction has been done by Rahul Riji Nair. The cinematography of Tobin Thomas is eye pleasing and beautiful.
