Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

In 2004, Upendra approached Shailendra Babu to remake the 2001 Telugu film Nuvvu Naaku Nachav. Although initially hesitant, Shailendra Babu agreed to produce the film.

Release and reception[edit]

Gowramma received generally positive reviews from critics. Rediff.com praised Upendra's performance in the film and also stated that "Gowramma is an impressively enjoyable film, and a heavily recommended watch".[2] The reviewer for Viggy.com praised the film and Upendra's performance, and stated that he looks different from his stereotype images in films such as A and Upendra.[3] S. N. Deepak of Deccan Herald terms the film "a family entertainer" and commended Ramya's performance while praising the camera-work and dialogues.[4]

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 a large 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 centers in Bangalore, Mysore, Davanagere, Shimoga, Mangalore, Hubli. The film was declared as a 'Super Hit'.[5]
