Konda movie review: RGV is one of the best filmmakers in India and is known for his love of violence, which we have seen in his movies for the last 30 years. Now, he’s back with another biopic, Konda, which tells the story of former Telangana politician Konda Murali, and the trailers have raised buzz, even though RGV hasn’t made a biopic in a while.
Konda Murali’s story takes place in Telangana in 1990, where he is a college student who becomes fascinated by the Indian constitution while perusing the books in the library. At the same time, the city is plagued by political conflicts and Konda Murali becomes a criminal for the common good. How did he become a criminal? And how did he become a politician if he was a criminal? You’ll have to watch the movie to find the answers to these questions.
Konda stars Thrigun, Irra Mor, Prudhvi Raj, LB. Sriram, Parvathi Arun, Prashanth Karthi, Tulasi, and Abhilash Chaudary, and the film was directed by Ram Gopal Varma, while Malharbhatt Joshi was in charge of cinematography, DSR composed the music, and Anand Kollabathula provided the background score.

RGV is known for his biopics because he has made some of the best biopics with his unique perspective, like Raktha Charithra and Veerappan. To immerse the audience in Konda’s world, the film greatly benefits from the use of RGV’s voiceover.
As RGV showed in the first half how Konda Murali became a criminal and those situations were captured so well and Konda Surekha’s characters were placed so well in the story as RGV used her character to perfection and the second half focused mainly on his political trip and RGV. It showed some brilliant scenes in the second half, but the story stretches too far into the proceedings.
Several scenes with Thrigun as Konda work well because we are used to him as a lover boy, but Irra Mor’s performance is lackluster and the rest of the cast including Prudhvi Raj, LB Sriram and Tulsi all act admirably.
RGV proved once again that he is a one-of-a-kind director in this film, and there are many scenes where you can see brilliant camera work and writing, as well as RGV’s ability to keep the audience engaged.
Konda’s technical departments performed admirably despite lower-than-expected production values, but highlights include Malharbhatt Joshi’s cinematography and Indian singer DSR’s catchy songs. Anand Kollabathula’s background score falls short of the high standards set by RGV’s previous films, but the rest is solid.
RGV is back with Konda, and if you’re a fan of his work, you should check it out ASAP.
Movie Rating: 3/5
