RGV is known for biopics as he made the finest biopic s with his perspective and audience has received so well like Raktha Charithra and Veerappan they are beautifully-crafted biopics and now Konda, The film gets off to a good start with RGV’s voice over, which helps to immerse the audience in Konda’s world, and I thought it worked well in the film.
RGV didn’t waste any time in establishing the characters as he showcased in the first half how Konda Murali became a criminal, and those situations are captured so well, and Konda Surekha’s characters placed so well in the story as RGV used her character perfectly, and the second half mostly focused on his political journey and RGV showed some brilliant scenes in the second half, but in the proceedings, the story gets overstretched.
Thrigun as Konda is good in a few parts because we know him as a lover boy and this is a complete contrast for him, while Irra Mor is only mediocre, failing to act in many scenes, and the rest of the cast Prudhvi Raj, LB Sriram, and Tulsi all do well for their roles.
We can definitely see vintage RGV as he once again demonstrated why he is a unique director; there are many situations with excellent camera work and brilliant writing, and RGV succeeded in engaging the audience.
Technically, Konda is good as the production values could have been better, Malharbhatt Joshi’s cinematography is good and he captured a few scenes so well, DSR songs are good as Surakamma will be the chartbuster, and Anand Kollabathula’s background score is not up to par as we have seen this type of bgm in RGV’s previous films, and the rest of the technical departments performed well.
Finally, Konda is RGV’s comeback film, and if you like RGV, you should see it.
