Konda Movie Review: RGV is one of India’s greatest filmmakers, and he’s known for his love of violence, which we’ve seen in his films for the past 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 expectations, despite the fact that RGV hasn’t made a biopic in a while.
The story of Konda Murali takes place in Telangana in 1990, where he is a college student who becomes fascinated by the Indian constitution while perusing library books. At the same time, the city is racked by political strife, and Konda Murali becomes a criminal for the greater good. How did he become a criminal? And how did he become a politician if he was a criminal? You’ll have to see the movie to find out the answers to these questions.
Cast & Crew
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 responsible for the cinematography, DSR composed the music, and Anand Kollabathula provided the background score.

RGV is known for biopics because he has made some of the best biopics with his unique perspective, like Raktha Charithra and Veerappan. In order to immerse the audience in the world of Konda, the film benefits greatly from the use of the RGV voice-over.
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 perfectly and the second half mostly focused on his political journey and RGV showed some brilliant scenes in the second half, but the story gets overstretched in 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 mediocre and the rest of the cast, including Prudhvi Raj, LB Sriram, and Tulsi, all perform admirably.
RGV proved once again that he’s a one-of-a-kind director in this film, and there are plenty of scenes where you can see brilliant camerawork and writing, as well as RGV’s ability to keep the audience engaged.
Konda’s technical departments performed admirably despite the lower-than-expected production values, but the cinematography by Malharbhatt Joshi and the catchy songs by the Indian singer DSR highlight. The background score by Anand Kollabathula falls short of the high standards set by RGV’s previous films, but the rest are strong.
RGV has made a comeback with Konda, and if you’re a fan of his work, you should see it as soon as possible.
