Guntur Kaaram producer gets defensive

At a Friday press meet in Hyderabad, producer Naga Vamsi claimed that Guntur Kaaram was doing well at the box office ‘despite all the negativity.’ He said, “I’m here to tell you that your intellectual opinions haven’t hurt us or affected the collections. Reviews are just one person’s opinion, they don’t reflect the audience’s tastes. If you can criticise my films, I can call out your reviews too. None of you are Gods and your reviews hold no value because the film is doing well.”

About the films

HanuMan tells the story of a man named Hanumanthu (Teja) who gains superpowers after finding a totem in his village. Guntur Kaaram tells the story of a man called Ramana (Mahesh) who wants to know why his mother (Ramya Krishnan) abandoned him years ago.
