Movie Verdict

While we first see the protagonist’s character development and flashbacks, it takes the movie some time to get to the main plot. The jail setting and the characters’ intensity keep you interested in the story even when the sluggish narration eventually becomes tedious. Although the first half has its moments, it will try your patience. The intermission is performed fairly effectively, and it piqued interest in the second half.

The second is where the actual narrative starts, when the protagonist Seshu decides to escape from jail, and his escape preparations keep us riveted to our seats. The second half of the movie, with its exciting action sequences and racy dialogue, rescued the movie. The narration of the movie occasionally makes us think of Visaranai flicks, but this one is more about vicious gangsters who will do anything to get what they want.

Hridhu Haroon, a debutante, did a respectable job as he sustained the tension throughout the movie very effectively, although he struggled to express himself at the emotional parts. As always, Bobby Simha’s performance was impressive, and playing this character came naturally to him. Although Anaswara Rajan has little on-screen presence, the rest of the cast gave it their all.

Though Brinda only partially succeeded in presenting the picture, her story is pretty good. Although the second half of the narration was where she was successful in capturing the audience’s attention with her raunchy narration, the first half narration should have been better and a few draggy sections can be easily cut.

Strictly speaking, Konaseema Thugs is excellent; Priyesh Gurusamy’s cinematography is the movie’s biggest plus; the mood and tone of the movie draw you in, and his lighting makes you feel like you’re a part of it. Although Sam CS’s songs are not up to par, his background score and the work of the rest of the technical team pleased.

Konaseema Thugs is a compelling action drama overall.
