Guntur kaaram first review umair sandhu mahesh babu

Superstar Mahesh Babu has amped up the excitement among fans post the release of the trailer of Guntur Kaaram on Sunday evening, 8 January.

Meanwhile, fans are busy guessing how gripping the story of the big-budget film would be. However, he is the first review that is creating chaos in social media circles.

Umair Sandhu, a critic (who also claims to be a member of the Overseas Censor Board), provided the first review of Guntur Karam on X.

According to the review, Mahesh Babu’s performance and the entertainment factor in the movie are impressive. Umair Sandhu also predicted a positive response from the mass audience.

Guntur Kaaram‘s story has so much potential that it would shatter all box office records of major films in Telugu, the reviewer added.

Further, Umair Sandhu gave a rating of 3.5/5 to the film, saying it will create miracles this festival season at the box office.

Soon after the first review of Guntur Kaaram went viral, a few netizens started trolling the reviewer, saying he was not a genuine reviewer and his reviews may not reflect the true merit of a film.

However, earlier, Umair Sandhu’s positive reviews brought joy to the fans of the respective movie heroes.

Guntur Karam is set to hit the screens in another five days (on 12 January), and fingers are crossed over its box-office expectations.

Massive expectations over Trivikram-Mahesh combo

Meanwhile, with the release of Prasanth Varma’s Hanu Man alongside Guntur Kaaram, there is a sense of concern among Mahesh Babu’s fans regarding how the film would be received.

Guntur Karam is a highly anticipated flick — not only for Mahesh Babu’s fans but also for movie enthusiasts.

Directed by Trivikram Srinivas, who previously collaborated with Mahesh Babu on films like Athadu (2005) and Khaleja (2010), the movie has generated massive excitement ever since the beginning.

While Athadu performed well in theatres and extremely well on television, Khaleja faced challenges but gained a cult following over time.

The Trivikram-Mahesh Babu duo has reunited for Guntur Karam. The glimpses and songs released thus far have not met fans’ expectations entirely.
