Director Radha Mohan and actor-turned-producer Prakash Raj have already worked together in five movies in Telugu and Tamil. Now, they are up with their sixth outing Gouravam and they have selected a fresh face Allu Sirish, the brother of Allu Arjun for it. The trio makes sure that they rock you with a hard hitting social drama, which is embedded with good story and excellent performance.
Gouravam is social drama with rich production values. Debutante Allu Sirish's electrifying performance is the main highlight in the film. Radha Mohan's interesting story and narration, S Thaman's enchanting music, Preetha's beautiful cinematography, well choreographed action and dance and a few sentimental scenes are other attractions of the movie.
The movie deals with a universal problems - the issue of honour killing and it also throws light on discrimination and caste system, which is still prevailing in the country even after 60 years of its independence. Radha Mohan, who has penned the story and screenplay besides direction, has clubbed creativity with commerce. He has nicely blended a love story into this serious subject. He has also included some action scenes to suit the taste of young audience.
Arjun is a young man who goes from the city to a village in search of his friend, who has gone missing. How he finds him out will form the story of the movie. 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.
