Senior director Ram Gopal Varma is back with a film titled, Konda. Promoted as a biographical drama on Warangal based politician Konda Murali, the film has hit the screens on June 24th. Let’s see how it is.

Story:

Set in Warangal backdrop, the film mainly revolves around Konda Murali life story. Who is Konda Murali( Thrigun A)? What is his background? Being an aggressive natured guy, how will Konda emerge as man for downtrodden public? What is the role of Konda’s wife Surekha ( Irra Mor) in the entire setup? How will the couple go against the prevailing upper caste domination in and around Warangal, forms the crucial crux of the film.

On-screen performances:

Thrigun A perfectly fitted in the given titular role and did his part nicely. His mannerisms and dialogue delivery adds authentic flavour to the film. His intense acting in a couple of scenes in the second half brings depth to the proceedings.

Heroine Irra Mor surprises with her performance in all key scenes. Earlier, Irra Mor had glamorous on screen image but in Konda her acting will register well with the audience.

Comedian Prudhvi did negative role in the movie and he did his part quite decently. Artists such as LB Sriram, Tulasi among others are apt in their supporting roles.

Off-screen Talents:

Ram Gopal Varma who is widely known for making biographical drama with his mark taking has once again did decent job with Konda. He tried to narrate the film with a realistic texture by incorporating true incidents happened in 90s and early 2000s time period.

Music by DSR Balaji is okay as his background score is apt for the proceedings. Editing by Manish Takur is fine as he kept the runtime within the limits.

The cinematography work by Malhar Bhatt Joshi is good as he captured the rustic flavour in the narrative nicely. The production values for this limited budget film by Sushmita Patel are decent.

Positive Points:

  • Performances
  • Realistic narrative

Negative Points:

  • Typical RGV template
  • Lacks commericality

Verdict:

In an overview, Konda is a rustic and realistic drama based on the life story of renewed couple Konda Murali and Surekha from Warangal. While the acting by Thrigun A and Irra Mor is a major highlight for the film, lack of commercial formate may not get universal applause from the audience.
