Guntur Kaaram Movie Review: Story
Due to an accident, Vyra Vasundhara (Ramya Krishnan) abandoned her 10-year-old son Veera Venkata Ramana (Mahesh Babu). After twenty-five years, she gets appointed as a Minister. Her father, Venkata Swamy (Prakash Raj), wants Ramana to sign a document stating that he is not related to his mother, Vasundhara, in order to secure her success in the next elections.
Questions concerning the accident, Venkata Ramana’s reaction, whether or not he signed the paperwork, what Vasundhara did, and whether or not they eventually reunited are all addressed in the story as it develops.
Guntur Kaaram Movie Review: Script
Both as a writer and director, Trivikram Srinivas is unable to make a lasting impression. An audience-relevant and more poignant plot would have greatly increased the movie’s allure. Unfortunately, Thaman’s musical contribution isn’t up to par.
The cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa is up to par, but editor Navin Nooli can still do better, especially when it comes to cutting out superfluous scenes. The significant investment made by the producers guarantees the film’s visually stunning presentation.
Guntur Kaaram Movie Review: Star Performance
The whole movie is supported by Mahesh Babu’s charm, and when things get monotonous, it becomes less enjoyable. We’ll need something more than just star-worshiping in a three-hour film. The enormous 26-year age difference between Mahesh Babu and Sreeleela often causes difficult situations because her role is meant to be around him exclusively.
As Ramana’s cousin, Meenakshi Chaudhary receives very little attention and screen time. I’m curious if Pooja Hegde was given any thought for this part or if Sreeleela was chosen instead. The poor writing makes Ramya Krishnan, who is Ramana’s mother, insignificant. Though they don’t have much to do to develop into significant characters, Jayaram and Prakash Raj play effectively.
Guntur Kaaram Movie Review: The Last Word
All in all, there’s a scene in which Mahesh Babu loses consciousness of everything around him due to intoxication; I wish this movie could replicate it.
