Movie Verdict

The film takes time to get into the main story as we see the protagonist’s character establishment and his backstory flash cuts in the beginning. Though the slow narration gets boring, the prison premise and intensity of the characters make you invested in the story. The first half has its moments but it tests your patience the interval block is executed quite well and it created curiosity to watch the latter half.

The second is where the actual story begins when hero Seshu decided to flee from prison and his plans of escape make us glued to our seats. The racy screenplay, action blocks, and thrilling moments in the second half saved the film. The narration of the film reminds us of Visaranai movies here and there but this film is more into ferocious thugs who can go to any extent if they want something.

Debutant Hridhu Haroon does a decent job as he carried the intensity throughout the film quite well but he failed to emote the emotional scenes. Bobby Simha as usual impressed with his performance and this character is just a cakewalk for him. Anaswara Rajan has less screen presence but she looks quiet on the screen and the rest of the cast did their best.

Brinda’s story is quite good, but she partly succeeded in presenting the film. The first half narration should have been better and a few draggy scenes can be easily chopped off, although the second where she succeeded in engaging the audience with the racy narration.

Technically, Konaseema Thugs is brilliant, Priyesh Gurusamy’s cinematography is the biggest plus point for the film, the mood, and tone of the film pull you into the world of film and his lighting makes you part of it. Sam CS’s songs are not up to the mark but impressed with his background score and the rest of the technical team did well.

Overall, Konaseema Thugs is an engaging action drama
