Gowramma’ is a colorful, hilarious, lavishly made family entertainer. Upendra’s ability to dance, emote in comedy and emotional scenes are wonderful. This type of film is an answer to the audience who are glued in front of the small screen. The film audience from 60’s to 2000 (Family audience) who are not coming to the theatres can easily come and watch this film. The high point of this film is that there is no action but there is wonderful reaction on the screen from all the artistes.
The values the film upholds – cleanliness, respect for elders, discipline, friendship etc. are morale boosters. This is a combination of good elements of cinema. Producer Shailendra Babu deserves full appreciation as he has shown the guts to project superstar Upendra in a family entertainer with no action scenes. He has invested very well and the graphic work done for the film is quite interesting.
Venki is very careless guy sent from his house by his father to earn a job. He comes to the affluent family headed by Srinivasamurthy who is a close friend of his father. This is the house where the engagement of Gowri is taking place to an USA resident boy. Reels after –Venky is also a reel masterthe stage is now set wherein Venky becomes very affectionate to everyone in the family and his ideals touch Gowri the beautiful daughter of the house. In addition to this her aunt’s (Pavithra Lokesh) piece of advice on life corrects her intentions and Gowri starts loving Venky. That is the interval point for you. All set to go back to his place Venky is pacified by Srinivasamurthy to come back to the house. Venky on his return maintains a strict silence all because he wanted Gowri to get marry and keep up the good friendship of his father (Ramesh Bhat) with Srinivasamurthy. The silence of Venky is intolerable for Ramya. When the marriage date approaches there is a twist that changes the fate of Gowri as well as Venky. What is that and how Gowri feels secured? You have to watch this clean family entertainer.
This is definitely going to create a new image for Upendra. The women folks who thronged to the theatres from his ‘Kutumba’ for the same banner are sure going to turn up. What is notable from Upendra in this film is that he has handled comedy and his breezy style of narrating the dialogues, gives him applauds. The biggest applaud he gets is when the song Kolthalalappo…., comes after interval. Two other songs are very melodious.For Ramya this is once again a film with good costumes. She has done very well when she antagonizes with Venky. Ramya is not as fast as Upendra in dance sequences.
For Pavithra Lokesh it looks as if it is a continuation of her popular television serial ‘Guptha Gamini’. She gives a neat performance and plays a vital role in her small presence. Srinivasamurthy, Ramesh Bhat and Doddanna as senior supporting artistes rendered able support. Baby Raksha has come out with effortless performance. Komal is at his usual best. Sai Satish cinematography and S.A.Rajkumar the music director have added the extra strength for the film.
