Gouravam - Movie Reviews

Gouravam has an intense and unique subject, which provokes your thought. It also has got best performance from the lead actors. But slow and dragging narration may keep away a section of audience from the theatres. If you are mega family fan, don't miss to watch Sirish's intense performance.
TollyArea
Although it is a message-oriented movie, Gouravam is not preachy. It is quite entertaining and encouraging for youth. At times, some emotional scenes are dragging and they might bore some section of viewers.
OneIndia
There is no scope entertainment in this film. Instead of cinema, it appears as a crime story on TV. It appears like a documentary. If you get into theatre with aim of enjoying for two hours then you are caught.
TeluguMirchi
An 'Honourable' attempt
India Glitz
Director Radha Mohan planned to set the theaters on fire by raking the burning topic of honor killing with mega hero on debut. In the process Allu Sirish debut went wasted as the film lacks romance, comedy or commercial elements which are essential for the success of the film. If one gives him benefit of doubt that the film will appeal to A class viewers, even there there are loopholes.
AndhraHeadlines
Overall Gouravam Movie is low pace, too much melodrama. Allu Sirish done decent job with his debut gouravam.Except for the intent, there is nothing good about the movie. Box office prospect is highly doubtable.
TimesOfAP
Good message oriented movie.can be watched once.One should appreciate Allu Sirish for choosing this subject.
FilmCircle
Director Radha Mohan has once again failed to present a message oriented film in a crispy appealing way to Telugu audiences. His slow narration, single point story and more of Tamil flavor has misfired miserably in Gouravm.

Gouravam movie is slow but the theme of 'Honor Killing' must be appreciated.
TeluguOne
Coming to Gouravam story is unique and powerful. Allu Sirish makes a decent first appearance with Gauravam. He had done a decent job here. Yami Gautam looks charming. Prakash Raj looks appropriate. Finally, Gouravam is just an average movie. Definitely this is a good story. But movie is not up to the mark in all aspects.
SupergoodMovies
Allu Sirish chooses a thought provoking story for his debut and this is in fact a good choice. Director Radha Mohan and producer Prakash Raj should get the credits for choosing such a highly sensible script. As said earlier, this kind of script should be handled logically and with gripping narration but Gouravam falters with slow paced narration.
Movies Kavala
On the whole, Gauram is an intense and thought provoking film with a unique story. But slow pace, too much melodrama and the absence of commercial elements required for Telugu viewers may go against the movie. Allu Sirish has done a decent job with his debut.
Telugu123
Overall,a decent movie. It came up with a good message as it emphasised on equality of everyone in the society and these castes should not come in the way of individual’s rights .A one time watchable movie.
Cineoutlook
The screenplay is slow and there are no commercial elements in the movie.As an actor ,Allu Sirish has done a good job on debut.
Andhravilas
'Gouravam' is thought-provoking having a concept of Honor Killings, but the way of dealing is awful. There are lots of bad elements that will go against the film. Watch it, if you want a good message!!!
EenaduCinema.com
While the story in itself is a drawback, to add to the woes, performances too turn irksome for most part of the film. Sirish looks physically appealing with sharp features, but hardly brings anything to the fore in the acting department. He remains straight-faced in most scenes and hardly does anything to make his presence felt.
ZeeNews
A good premise, but the film fails to build it up to give us a riveting watch

Gouravam has an intense and unique subject, which provokes your thought. It has also got best performance from the lead actors. But slow and dragging narration and may keep a section of audience from the theatres. If you are mega family fan, don’t miss to watch Sirish’s intense performance.
AndhraBuzz
Not a respectable debut for Sirish!
Gulte
Poor screenplay, improper characterizations combined with very bad performance by Sirish makes Gouravam a very bad film to watch. Except for the honest intent to make a movie on a sensitive issue, Sirish or Radha Mohan does not give us more chance to appreciate. Try it at your own risk!
Tollywoodandhra
The story revolves around a wealthy guy named Arjun who will unveil a mystery surrounding his friend's missing case. Born with a silver spoon, Arjun never knows what the hardships are but then he's a good person at heart. When his father persuades him to leave for a remote village, he will accept only because he has a good friend in that place. Upon arriving, Arjun will realize that his friend had fallen in love with a girl, daughter of a land lord Pashupati (Prakash Raj) and eloped with her

SouthNews
Gouravam is a predictable drama, Director Radha Mohan and his producer Prakash Raj has to be applauded for making this bilingual with a mission to change the mindset of society. A major highlight of the film is Thaman’s inspiring music.Preetha’s beautiful cinematography, well choreographed action and dance.

On the whole, Gauravam is an intense and thought provoking film with a unique story. But slow pace, too much melodrama and the absence of commercial elements required for Telugu viewers may go against the movie. Allu Sirish has done a decent job with his debut.
TeluguMovie.Co
Director Radhamohan, who planned to create strong impact in South with ‘Gauravam’ after ‘Gaganam’, though selected a novel script failed to execute with the same power on silver screen. There was no talk of honour killings. Climax could have been shot better.
Myfirstshow
Serious subject based on a real incident, meant for thinking audience.Technically the film has been well made but given the essence of the subject it has more to offer for thinking and serious audience than the regular commercial audience.
BharatStudent
Gouravam is easily the weakest film in Radha Mohan’s career so far. If only the film had a better principal cast and a gripping screenplay, it wouldn’t have been as boring as it is now. Thumbs down.
PostNoon
Director Radha Mohan once again comes up with a topical and touching subject. But this time unlike his past few films the feel good factor is missing. This is a much darker subject and also something which generally creates an uneasy feeling among the audience.

ApunKaChoice
Allu Sirish did tremendous job. One cannot expect a debutant actor to act so well. Yami Gautam was okay too. Prakash Raj was outstanding. Brahmaji was ok.A one time watch!
Andhrawishesh
Gouravam is a huge disappointment. Unfortunately, the shallow incompetent script, the slow paced documentary-style narration and the weak cast together make this film a huge disappointment.

Telugu.way2movies
Since the film is a bilingual it could work well with the Tamil industry. Overall, this is a film which deals with a society based subject and is rather sensitive given the caste flavor.
Greatandhra
First half of the movie is very long. The narration is slow. First half of the movie is extremely slow paced and second half is decent. Songs in Gauravam are below average. More than the telugu audience tamil audience will like the film. Interval bang and the student episodes are blown out.
24Krafts
With nothing to talk about the lousy script and the amateurish performances, Gouravam is a ridiculous watch.  If you want to be inspired, prefer to read Arundhati Roy's essays.
India Glitz
If analysed from Telugu audience perspective, 'Gauravam' is devoid of any commercial elements. So, there is no chance of survival at BO. Mega Fans who think of taking a chance to watch Sirish might also step back once reviews and public talk comes out.
Cinejosh
It appears like a documentary If you get into theatre with aim of enjoying for two hours then you are caught
Telugu Mirchi
Gouravam story is distinctive and powerful. Allu Sirish makes a decent first appearance with Gauravam. He had done a decent job here. Yami Gautam looks charming. Prakash Raj looks appropriate. Suspense component in the movie is good quality. Overall movie is just average.
Searchandhra
Allu Sirish made a decent debut with ‘Gouravam’ and his dialogue delivery is too good, he acted very well in the emotional scenes.Yami Gautam is beautiful and has done simple job. Prakash Raj’s role was brief and there is nothing to complain. Bramhaji, LB Sriram are good.
