Mahesh Babu’s Record-Breaking Guntur Karam: Box Office Triumph!”


Guntur Karam Box Office Collection: The Highest in Mahesh Babu’s Career in Terms of Amounts in Crores?

Guntur Karam, directed by Trivikram Srinivas and produced under the banner of Harika Hassine Creations by Surya Devara Radhakrishna (China Babu) is a film starring superstar Mahesh Babu and Shrileela. On January 12, this film, which was co-directed by Mahesh Babu and Shrileela, was released everywhere with great fanfare. But when we get into the specifics of the movie’s budget, pre-release operations, screen distribution, and box office receipts, we find that Guntur Karam was made on a significant budget. The stars, technicians, and advertising costs are all included in the movie’s budget, which comes to over 200 crores. But even before it was released, the movie had made almost 132 crores in revenue globally. With an approximate budget of 135 crores, it set out to break even at the box office.

Review of Guntur Karam:

Mahesh Babu’s charm keeps this drab movie from being bad.
Review of Guntur Karam: On paper, only Trivikram Srinivas’ film starring Mahesh Babu and Shrileela looks appropriate for Sankranti.

Trivikram Srinivas’ third film with Mahesh Babu is the poorest of his career, following Athadu and Khaleja. Throughout its two hours and forty-nine minutes, Guntur Karam, which stars Shrileela and has notable performances by Prakash Raj, Ramya Krishna, Jayaram, Meenakshi Chaudhary, Murali Sharma, Venela Kishore, and others, finds it difficult to keep your interest. It’s unfortunate because it had a strong narrative to back up its attempts. (Also Read: Meenakshi Chaudhary remarks, “I can’t take my eyes off him,” about Guntur Karam co-star Mahesh Babu.)

Guntur Karam Story:

Raman (Mahesh) has spent the majority of his life apart from his mother Vasundhara (Ramya). Depending on who you ask, the son was formerly known as Rowdy Ramana or Guntur Karam. It’s not that he doesn’t have love; his step-siblings (Meenakshi), aunt (Eeshwari Rao), uncle (Raghubabu), and father, Royal Satyam (Jayaram), all show him plenty of affection. Still, he yearns for his mother’s love, the one from whom he has been cut off. Prakash, his grandfather, is a well-known politician; Rahul Ravindran, his stepbrother, and his mother are in charge. However, what would happen if Raman’s estranged family continued to humiliate him for political purposes?

Guntur Karam Review:

Indian film has entered a new age. Filmmakers appear to be drawn to love stories that centre on friendships (like Salaar and RRR) and, increasingly, parental ties (like Animal, Hey Nanna, and Guntur Karam). Though there are undoubtedly differences in the way these films handle and show their stories, it seems like parent-child friendship problems are more common. Our male heroes undoubtedly possess alternative means of expressing their rage? The creators of Guntur Karam hid the truth from the public, so nobody knew what the movie was about until the audience walked into the theatre. However, this movie is not what you would anticipate—it’s a dumb commercial potboiler. This does not imply that Trivikram did not try to make it an emotional film.

What Works:
It’s difficult to dislike Mahesh when he plays Raman because of how effortlessly and swaggeringly he does the role. His dialogues are full of humour and some of them make you laugh out loud at the sheer chutzpah of it all. He smokes a bidi and burns it with style. Being self-aware, he criticises his family for their flaws—you get the idea. Being self-aware, he criticises his family for their flaws—you get the idea. You as an audience feel disoriented after each revelation in a scenario where an inebriated Raman is frantically attempting to figure out why he’s there, who’s planning to kill him, and where the tale is going. Thin plot. Manoj Paramahamsa’s cinematography also tries to add depth to the proceedings but falls short as style can only do so much without substance.

What Doesn’t Work:
One could characterise Guntur Karam as a movie with too many sequences, ones that don’t pay enough attention to emotions and end abruptly, and scenes that, worse, are just fillers. Trivikram will end it with some pointless discussion before you feel or comprehend Raman’s predicament or the reason his mother would abandon him for twenty-five years. Mahesh’s character has relatively few opportunities in the movie to really breathe, take everything in, and appropriately express his emotions. Old-fashioned jokes and combat scenes don’t help either, nor does the erratic background music, which occasionally drowns out the dialogue. You will meet a Raman in the movie who is more than just his business, more than his welcome, and more than just your typical masala movie. And it’s a shame because Mahesh throws everything he has into the film. If only Trivikram could step out of the box he created for himself.

Guntur Karam’s Women:
Amuktha Malliada, aka Ammu (Shrileela), is Raman’s girlfriend. She is often seen shooting reels or dancing with him, besides having nothing else to do. While Shrileela dances like a dream, a bit more impact on her character’s story could have been beneficial. Meenakshi, apart from running around her stepbrother, doesn’t get much to do, but what she does is skillful. Isn’t it time to give better roles to these girls?

Given that the plot revolves around a mother abandoning her son for a quarter of a century, Viara ought to have done a better job introducing Ramya’s character, Vasundhara. And it’s frustrating that it’s not. The film, especially given Ramya’s talent as an actor, might have been done with more passion and heart. Eeshwari does well in one or two scenes where she can play it all out, but not in key scenes. Despite this, her characters have a satisfying ending.

A Missed Opportunity:Guntur Karma ultimately seems like a squandered chance. It was just hanging sadly in the jaws of discontent the way it is now, when it could have become a commercial masala film or a tearjerker. Furthermore, Mahesh gives the movie his all, so it’s awkward. If only
Trivikram could step out of the box he created for himself.”
