After watching the film, Mahesh’s nephew, actor Ashok Galla, was all praise for his uncle. He wrote on X, “#GunturKaaaram our superstar @urstrulyMahesh (fire emoji). Simple ga cheppalante idi Ramana gaadi rubabuuu! Pandu gaadu tharavatha intha attitude! Core sentiment works so incredibly well especially interval and climax. What a start to Sankranthi! (Our Superstar Mahesh Babu is fire in Guntur Kaaram. To state it simply, this is Ramana’s win. After Pandu (in Pokiri) this is the first character to have such attitude.)”

Fans review

One fan seemed confident that the film will be a hit, given the way Mahesh performed, and said, “Great one. #GunturKaaram. Genuinely one of the greatest works done with massy elements and drama along side MB plays crucial role by carrying the story like this is an sure shot super hit for sure manam kotesam anna @urstrulyMahesh. #GunturKaraamReview. (We’ve scored a hit for sure brother)”

Another fan pointed out that while director Trivikram and music composer Thaman S are being called out, no one’s pointing out any flaws in Mahesh’s performance, writing, “All the reviews which are inclined to average - you’ll only see people bashing Trivi and Thaman but you’ll never find a singlr tweet which is against @urstrulyMahesh performance. An actor for (the) ages, you’ve never seen this Babu before, just go watch it for Babu.”

Sharing clips taken inside the theatre of fans celebrating Mahesh’s dance moves, some called Guntur Kaaram a ‘one man show,’ writing, “Frankly speaking Babu one man show adinchindu movie motham. (Frankly speaking this film is a one man show thanks to Babu.)” Another revealed that the song Kurchi Madathapetti got a good response in the theatre they were at, “Massive response for this song.”
