In the depths of Guntur city’s underworld, Guntur Karam, known as the king, finds himself entangled in a romantic liaison with a journalist dedicated to uncovering the city’s illicit activities. The trailer features Mahesh Babu portraying Ramana in peak form, delivering impactful dialogues and effortlessly engaging in intense action sequences. Additionally, it provides a glimpse into the overall aesthetic of the film and introduces key characters.

Ramya Krishnan is depicted as a mother who abandoned her eldest son, Ramana, leading him to grow up amidst the gritty environment of Guntur. Sreelila is presented as the object of Ramana’s affection, while Jagapathi Babu appears to portray her father. The trailer hints at the film’s vibrancy, especially in exploring Ramana’s complex relationship with his family.

Vyra Vasundhara (played by Ramya Krishnan) separated from her son Veera Venkata Ramana (portrayed by Mahesh Babu) when he was just 10 years old due to an accident. After 25 years, she becomes a Minister, and in order to ensure her seamless victory in the upcoming elections, her father, Venkata Swamy (played by Prakash Raj), insists that Ramana signs papers disavowing any connection with his mother, Vasundhara. The unfolding narrative addresses questions about the accident, Ramana’s reaction, whether he signed the papers, Vasundhara’s actions, and the potential reunion between mother and son.

Mahesh Babu effortlessly steps into his highly anticipated role, showcasing a rough and rugged style complemented by the captivating Guntur dialect. His charismatic energy breathes life into every frame, providing a delightful experience for his dedicated fanbase.

Prakash Raj, perfectly cast once again as Guntur Karam, delivers a commendable performance portraying both the Minister and Mahesh Babu’s grandfather. The on-screen chemistry between the two adds a significant layer to the film.

Special mention goes to Ajay as Gelatin Babji, Bahramji, Ajay Gosh, and Vennela Kishore for their well-executed comedic contributions. Despite limited screen time in a story centered around her character, Ramya Krishnan delivers a subtle yet impactful performance, leaving a lasting impression.

Trivikram Srinivas, in both writing and directing, falls short of creating a lasting impact. A more resonant and audience-connecting storyline could have significantly enhanced the film’s overall appeal. Unfortunately, Thaman’s musical contribution also falls short of expectations.

Rating – 3.5/5

In general, Guntur Kaaram manages to provide sporadic entertainment, heavily relying on the captivating screen presence, accent, and punchy one-liners delivered by Mahesh Babu. Consequently, the movie earns a rating of 3.5 stars out of 5. However, Shaman’s musical compositions fall considerably below expectations, with only the Kurchi and Oh Baby songs standing out.

The background score lacks depth and consistency. While Guntur Kaaram may not resonate with every audience segment this Sankranthi season, aficionados of Mahesh Babu may still find it worth a watch, primarily due to the actor’s one-man show presented in an energetic and charismatic demeanor.
