Vaisshnav Tej’s ‘Konda Polam’ Movie Review:

Konda Polam movie review

Telugu360 Rating : 2.5/5

Tollywood director Krish is known for directing sensible films like Gamyam, Vedam and Kanche. Impressed with the novel ‘Kondapolam’ that is written by Sannapureddi Venkata Ramireddy, Krish decided to adapt it into a film. It was made with Vaisshnav Tej, Rakul Preet Singh with the same name. Sai Chand and Kota Srinivasa Rao played the other prominent roles in a different attempt. Kondapolam was shot entirely in the forests of Vikarabad district. Krish’s home banner First Frame Entertainments produced the film and Keeravani is the music director. Here is the complete review of Kondapolam:

Story:

Kondapolam narrates the story of Ravindra Yadav (Vaisshnav Tej) who is a responsible youth who struggles to make his profession in the field of IT. After testing his luck for four complete years, Ravi heads back to his roots and decides to support his father (Sai Chand). The entire village suffers from drought and the people struggle hard to feed their cattle. Ravi’s father along with a bunch of the villagers decides to head for Kondapolam to save their cattle (sheep). The rest of Kondapolam is all about Ravi’s journey and his equation with Obulamma (Rakul Preet Singh). It is after this journey, Ravi gains confidence and settles well in his life. Watch Kondapolam to know about the memorable journey of Ravindra Yadav.

Analysis:

Kondapolam is not just about feeding the cattle and the sheep. The film narrates about the drastic situations, adventures, and survival in these extreme conditions. The characters are well designed but Krish failed to get the right needed emotional connect which is crucial for films like Kondapolam. The songs are good and Keeravani adds life with his background score. The slow pace is the biggest barrier for the film. The film is shot in realistic locations and the performances are honest. Kondapolam is the story of a youngster who succeeds in life because of a memorable journey. This journey teaches him some valuable lessons and gets him the needed confidence.

The episodes with the tiger are shot badly and the graphic work is quite poor. The Rayalaseema drought issues are narrated well and a village attempts to save their cattle from these conditions and heads to Kondapolam. The first half of Kondapolam looks decent with an interesting interval block. The second half of the film looks flat and makes a boring watch. When there are no commercial ingredients, there should be a strong emotional drama that goes missing in Kondapolam. Though the film has enough depth, it was not well narrated.

Performances:

Vaisshnav Tej is just one film old and he should be appreciated for picking up a film like Kondapolam. The actor delivered his best as Ravi and he even fits well. Tej transformed well and his expressions are good. Rakul Preet lives up to the expectations in a de-glam role as Obulamma. Rakul has done enough homework for the role and it is clearly visible on screen. Sai Chand comes up with one more interesting attempt and his performance will be remembered for a long time. Kota Srinivasa Rao and Ravi Prakash have done their jobs with perfection. All the other actors are decent.

Kondapolam is inspired by a novel and is a different attempt. Krish penned the screenplay for Kondapolam. The dialogues are good at times and the script is written without adding unwanted entertainment and songs. MM Keeravani’s background score is an asset for Kondapolam and the songs are good. The cinematography work is very good and some of the emotional episodes are well presented. The production values are good and the editing work is ok. Krish has been honest with the attempt but Kondapolam happens at a slow pace because of which it may not appeal to everyone.

Verdict:

Kondapolam is an honest attempt from Krish but the film will not appeal to everyone. For those who love art films, Kondapolam can be given a watch.

Kondapolam Trailer: A Realistic Tale

1

Talented and sensible filmmaker Krish did a small budget film during the pandemic season. The movie is titled Kondapolam and is inspired by the novel penned by Sannapureddy Venkatrami Reddy. Vaisshnav Tej and Rakul Preet Singh played the lead roles in Kondapolam. The film was announced for release on October 8th and the makers released the trailer of the film today. Kondapolam is a realistic attempt without any commercial ingredients. Mostly shot in the forests of Vikarabad, Kondapolam narrates about the challenges faced by the families who depend on raising sheep in forests.

Vaisshnav Tej comes from a small village who fails to settle in Hyderabad and takes up the profession of his father. Kota Srinivasa Rao, Sai Chand and Nazar will be seen in other important roles. Kondapolam trailer looks realistic but it is slow paced. Rakul plays a village belly and the love interest of Vaisshnav Tej. Firstframe Entertainments produced the film and MM Keeravani composed the music.

After Uppena, Vaishnav Tej comes up with another interesting project being directed by Krish with Rakul Preei Singh playing the female lead. First Frame Entertainments is producing the film which is in final stage of post-production.

The makers have unveiled title and first look poster of the movie. It is titled as Kondapolam and the first look poster looks very interesting. Vaishnav Tej looks attentive here and there’s watchfulness in his eyes. Shepherds and sheep can be seen in the backdrop of forest. The video also presents Vaishnav Tej in action-packed avatar, as he is set to fight some malefactors in the forest. While camera work by Gnana Shekar VS is stupendous, Keeravani’s music takes the visuals to next level.

Interesting aspect is Vaishnav Tej is presented as a saviour of the forest and the sheep. He seems to have played authoritative role in the movie. The poster also gives an impression that Kondapolam is going to be a visual wonder. An Epic Tale Of ‘Becoming’ is the tagline of the film.

Vaisshnav has volcano within: Ram Charan

3

Megapowerstar Ram Charan who graced the success celebrations of ‘Uppena’ movie, thanked the Telugu audiences first.

“2020 was a tough year for the entire film industry. While other film industries are still recovering, I can say with pride that our Tollywood industry has recovered hundred percent with the blockbuster success of ‘Uppena.’ I must also congratulate the producers of this film for waiting and daring to release the movie in testing times,” said Ram Charan.

Then the mega hero complemented the director Buchi. “I have been hearing a lot of numbers of the collections. This is not possible for a debutant but he did it. Sukumar is the best ‘Acharya’ for Buchi and Buchi is the best student from Sukumar’s school. I hope Buchi remains this grounded and makes many more blockbusters like this,” said Ram Charan.

Talking about hero Vaisshnav, Charan added, though he looks silent and innocent, there is a volcano within him, be careful with him. “When Vaisshnav decide to step into films, it’s Megastar Chiranjeevi garu and Kalyan Babai who encouraged him. It’s a blessing for him and us that they are in our lives,” added Charan.

The ‘RRR’ actor also spoke to about Krithi Shetty. “Probably no other heroine got such a huge debut in the recent times. This is just the beginning for Krithi and she has a long way to go. Perhaps Mythri producers will find it tough to get the dates of Krithi in future,” stated Charan.

The event witnessed a massive crowd and the success celebrations brought a cheer to the producers as well.

Meanwhile ‘Uppena’ is going super strong at the box office. The film might end up raking up Rs 50 crore share.
