What’s it about:
Khaleja starts off in the remote village of Pali where the villagers are dying of mysterious ailments while their village priest predicts that their savior will soon come down to rescue them. Cut to a remote corner of Rajasthan where a taxi driver Alluri SitaRama Raju (Mahesh) is on a mission to help a poor man’s family. Over a series of flashbacks with Babjee (Sunil), the story unfolds on how he has landed here and soon, a convenient coincidence has Subhashini (Anushka) landing up in the middle of the desert as well. Anushka and Mahesh have already had a series of comic interludes while in Hyderabad leading to Mahesh developing a soft corner for her. After almost being killed by GK’s (Prakash Raj) goons, they land up in Pali where Mahesh is treated as a God much to his discomfort. He runs back to Hyderabad to escape this worship but soon he finds himself drawn back. The movie is about how Mahesh, Anushka, GK and the village of Pali are interlinked over a rare mineral called Iridium that ultimately leads to an action packed climax.
