Guntur Kaaram Movie Review: Mahesh Babu’s Dedication Shines, but Trivikram’s Direction Curbs the ‘Jai Babu’ Enthusiasm

HYDERABAD (DT)- After a prolonged hiatus, the dynamic duo of Trivikram and Mahesh Babu reunites in the much-anticipated ‘Guntur Kaaram,’ marking their collaboration in a mass drama. Contrary to the typical Trivikram movie vibe, the trailer hints at an ultra-mass spectacle led by Mahesh Babu. The talented Sreeleela takes the stage as the female lead, with Meenakshi Chaudhary making a noteworthy appearance in a brief role. As the movie hits theaters, fans are eager to witness if ‘Guntur Kaaram’ lives up to the expectations built over the years. Let’s delve into the review from one of the US premieres to uncover the verdict.

Mahesh Babu’s Brilliance

The film witnesses Mahesh Babu’s unwavering commitment to his role, with a performance that radiates his star power. His portrayal adds depth to the character, keeping audiences engaged.

Mahesh Babu is super impressive in the role of ‘Ramana Gadu’. The man gets into that mass character and does full justice to the role. It is the thin plot and clueless narrative from Trivikram that wasted Mahesh’s efforts.

Sreeleela was given a role without substance, yet she scored marks where she is good at, dancing. Sreeleela impresses with her dance moves, like always. Meenakshi Chaudhary has got a very brief role and she is alright. Ramya Krishna, Prakash Raj, and Murli Sharma are usual. Jayaram’s character appears repetitive. Jagapathi Babu appears in a so very ordinary role which we don’t expect at all. Ajay, Vennela Kishore, and Eeswari Rao did their job.

Trivikram’s Directional Choices

Despite Babu’s stellar efforts, the review emphasizes that Trivikram’s directorial decisions cast a shadow over the overall cinematic experience. Some directional choices are noted for hindering the expected ‘Jai Babu’ moments.

Plot Dynamics

The storyline of “Guntur Kaaram” is highlighted for its intriguing plot dynamics, offering a mix of emotions and suspense. Babu’s efforts to elevate the narrative are evident, but certain directorial elements dilute the impact.

Cinematography and Soundtrack

The technical aspects, including cinematography and the soundtrack, receive positive mentions, contributing to the film’s visual and auditory appeal. However, these strengths are somewhat overshadowed by the directional challenges.

Audience Expectations

The audience’s expectations for a resounding ‘Jai Babu’ experience are met with a nuanced response, with the film showing flashes of brilliance amid moments where the direction appears to restrain the full potential.

While Mahesh Babu’s performance remains a standout, Trivikram’s directorial approach emerges as a point of discussion among both fans and critics. As the reviews unfold, the film’s reception becomes a topic of anticipation for cinema enthusiasts.

The overwhelming response and love they received were truly electrifying.

Stay tuned for further insights and audience reactions as “Guntur Kaaram” continues to make waves in the cinematic landscape.

Guntur Kaaram disappoints as both the director and music director deliver substandard work. The film struggles in every aspect, marred by a lackluster plot filled with forced comedy and a tedious narrative.

The background music lacks vitality, failing to enhance the impact of any scene. While songs like Dum Masala and Kurchi Madathapetti manage to pass muster, the remaining songs fail to leave a lasting impression, merely passing through without making a significant mark.


“The much-anticipated collaboration of Trivikram and Mahesh Babu in Guntur Kaaram, though awaited with excitement, seems to follow a familiar pattern. While their earlier ventures Athadu and Khaleja were distinct, Trivikram appears to be stuck in a routine formula, often revolving around the theme of a ‘separated wife’ and a protagonist’s efforts to set things right, now with a new mass appeal in Guntur Kaaram.

The film introduces a resilient woman, driven by self-respect, who walks away from her husband and son without looking back. Excluding Aravind Sametha, Trivikram’s last four films follow a similar template, and Guntur Kaaram fails to offer anything fresh or extraordinary.

The first half of Guntur Kaaram struggles to rise above average, with a singular narrative thread focusing on obtaining a ‘signature’ dragged out until the interval. The rationale behind seeking a signature to sever ties for political gains seems illogical and lacks sense. Neither the comedy nor the dialogues manage to resonate in the initial half, with Vennela Kishore’s attempts at humor falling short in most instances. While the interval promises a significant high, it disappointingly falls flat. Additionally, each character in the movie seems reminiscent of those from the director’s previous works.”
