Sumanth, Swathi starrer Golconda High School is made inspired from the book ‘The Men With in’. Indraganti, who proved his mettle with Asta Chamma has come up with this sport-centric film. The whole movie is made on the backdrop of Golconda High school with cricket as the central theme. Here is the High school movie review.


Golconda High school students were once champions in cricket. However, it looses its glory as the time passes by. Now, the trustee member Kireeth (subbaraju) plans to put an IIT coaching centre in GHS playground. The school principal Viswanatham (Tanikella Bharani) requests an alumini and cricket champion, Sampath (sumanth) to come as coach and bring the glory back. Sampath agrees to this and makes a challenge with Kireeth that if their team wins the trophy, the playground will be used for sports and Kireet will resign as trustee, else the decision will be made by Kireeth. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.


Sumanth suited well for the role as cricket coach, but he could have come up with little fiery expressions in intense scenes.

Swathi suits well opposite Sumanth, but we have to say the role of a teacher(makeover) did not suit this bubbly girl. But the lady performed well in her limited role.

The performances of all the kids in the movie makes a strongest impression. Subbaraju and Shafi are perfect for their roles. Tanikella Bharani was good and Hema was brief


Background score by Kalyani Malik is an asset to the film. Sirivennela’s inspiring lyrics in songs need a special mention. Cinematography by Senthil was good and editing was nice and the dialogues were simple but could tried better. The screenplay at times seems to have lost its grip but the climax grabs everyone’s attention.

Final Verdict

Golconda High School is not exceptional,it just like many sport-centric films. Though the first half of the film fails to captivate viewers interest, the secod half of the movie goes with a positive note especially the final twenty minutes is executed well. GHS does not offer any commercial elements, but will be a good watch for families.
