Ugram marks Allari Naresh and Vijay Kanakamedala’s second collaboration.
The film delves into the lead character Shiva Kumar’s investigations into a bunch of missing person cases.
The Telugu cop thriller movie Ugram starring Allari Naresh hit the theatres on May 5. Soon after its release, the film, written and directed by Vijay Kanakamedala received a mixed response from the audience. Many labelled Ugram to be an average movie with an engaging plot that fell short in terms of impactful execution.
Ugram marks Allari Naresh and Vijay Kanakamedala’s second collaboration. The actor-director duo has previously achieved success with the 2021 crime thriller Naandhi. While they aimed to recreate the magic with Ugram, the film lacked the compelling elements necessary for it to resonate with audiences and achieve significant box office success.
Along with Allari Naresh, the Vijay Kanakamedala directorial also stars Allari Mirnaa, and Manikanta Varanasi in key roles.
As per a review by ETimes, if you are seeking a solid thriller without high expectations, Ugram is the type of film you will appreciate. It’s a worthwhile watch, especially for fans of the Naandhi duo.

Ugram, which means intense anger, follows the journey of K Shiva Kumar, a policeman based in Warangal. The film delves into Shiva Kumar’s investigations into a bunch of missing person cases, particularly during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A tragic accident results in the loss of Shiva Kumar’s wife and daughter, leaving him unaware of their whereabouts. As Shiva Kumar narrows down a suspect, whose associates were eliminated in a confrontation for their mistreatment of women, the film captures how the protagonist handles this precarious situation with his wit and grit.
