Guntur Kaaram unfolds the story of Veera Venkata Ramana (Mahesh Babu), abandoned by his mother Vyra Vasundhara (Ramya Krishnan) at the age of 10. The film explores their complex relationship, political intrigue, and the mysteries surrounding an accident from 25 years ago.


Mahesh Babu delivers a captivating performance, embodying the Guntur dialect with charisma. Prakash Raj's dual role and the chemistry between Mahesh Babu and Vennela Kishore add depth and humor to the film.


The film struggles with a weak narrative, lackluster writing, and underutilization of talented actors. Unnecessary scenes and a loss of momentum in the first half contribute to its shortcomings.

Technical Aspects

Trivikram Srinivas falls short in creating a lasting impact with the storyline. Thaman's musical score and Manoj Paramahamsa's cinematography meet satisfactory standards, but there's room for improvement in editing by Naveen Nooli.


Guntur Kaaram provides sporadic entertainment, relying on Mahesh Babu's captivating screen presence. Despite its drawbacks, it may be watchable for Mahesh Babu fans.
