About Guntur Kaaram

Guntur Kaaram tells the story of Ramana (Mahesh) who longs to know why his mother (Ramya) abandoned him 25 years ago. When he’s asked to cut all ties with her by his grandfather (Prakash), he puts up a fight despite staying calm all these years. The film received lukewarm response from fans and critics alike, but Mahesh was lauded for his performance in it.
