Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

Gowramma received highly positive reviews from the critics. The film surprised the critics as well as the audience as it was highly contrary to Upendra's earlier typically hero dominated dialogue oriented mass films. Rediff praised Upendra's performance in the film and also stated that "Gowramma is an impressively enjoyable film, and a heavily recommended watch".[2] Other critics also acclaimed the film and praised Upendra's performance and stated that he looks different from his stereotype images in films such as A and Upendra.[3]

Box office[edit]

Gowramma opened well at the box office despite Upendra's character in the film being very contrary to his dialogue oriented mass image. The film did good business at crucial circuits like Bangalore, Mysore, Hasan, Chitradurga, Davanagere and many other centers across Karnataka. However, the business in Bangalore was stronger with lots of family audience flocking to the theaters screening the film. Gowramma was one of the highest grossing Kannada films of 2005 and became the third consecutive successful film under Upendra - Naganna combination. It successfully completed 50 days in more than 17 centres across Karnataka and recorded 100 days in many centres across the state like Bangalore, Mysore, Davanagere, Shimoga, Mangalore, Hubli. The film was declared as a Super Hit.[4]
