TELUGU SWAG RATING:
TELUGU 360 (Rating: 2.5/5):
Overall, Konda Polam is a genuine attempt with some cinematic liberties. But art and literature have dominated the cinema. Konda Polam may disappoint the masses. After Uppena, Vaisshnav offers a raw deal.
Great Andhra(Rating: 2.5/5):
‘Konda Polam’ is an enjoyable trek into the jungle. The message of the film hits home.
Mirchi9 (Rating: 2.25/5):
Overall, Konda Polam’s predictable premise is elevated by the unique backdrop. It runs with it initially but is undone eventually by a meandering and unengaging narrative. Give it a try if you want to see something fresh content-wise, but keep the expectations very low.
123TELUGU (Rating: 3/5):
On the whole, Konda Polam is an impressive and emotional tale of a young village man’s (Vaishnav Tej) inspiring journey. Actors’ performances, Krish’s trademark realistic and emotional narrative are the main strengths of this rural adventurous drama. On the flip side, repetitive scenes and unnecessary commercial ingredients (love songs) dilute the otherwise earnest tale of village life to an extent. You may watch Konda Polam this weekend for its touching subject matter, authentic performances and writing and overall technical finesse.
Times Of India (Rating: 2.5/5.):
MM Keeravani’s music is a delight but the BGM goes overboard at times instead of letting the scene play out. With the film upping the stakes right before the interval, it remains to be seen how the second half will fare.
