The movie begins with introduction of a young happy couple, Anoop (Nishan Naniah) and Anjali (Keerthy Menaka), working in Mumbai, who are deeply in love and are about to get engaged. Their happiness get destroyed when they get a phone call conveying that Anjali's mom Annamma (Seema) met with an accident in their home back in Kerala and is hospitalised. They take the next flight home. Here we are introduced to their home in Kerala, which is believed to be haunted with the soul of Geetha (Keerthy herself), twin sister of Anjali. The two decide to stay in the mansion and during that period, Anjali encounters several horrific encounters of a ghost which she believes to be Geetha.
In the flash back scenes, we get to know that Anjali in her
school times itself is in love with Anoop, and with the similarity
in looks, at some occasions, Anoop himself gets confused between
Geetha and Anjali while expressing his love. Like Anjali, Geetha
too falls in love with Anoop which causes clash between sisters and
eventually results in the suicide of Geetha by jumping off a rock
to the sea.
Being haunted by the ghost, Anoop seeks advice of Nakulan
(Suresh Gopi) who introduces him to Dr Sunny Joseph, (Mohanlal)
specialised in paranormal research and treatment. Then follows the
events through which Sunny solves the mystery revolving around the
haunted house and Geetha.

Mohanlal As Dr Sunny
Mohanlal as Dr Sunny has given a decent performance which makes
him the best among other actors in the movie. However, his
character could have been much more well molded.
Keerthi Menaka as Geetha and Anjali is good in portraying both
roles considering it as her debut. Nishan Naniah as Anoop
disappoints in his act. His dialogues and expressions seem to be
inspired from some drama acts.
Innocent, through his role of Thankappan Aashari, is successful
to make us laugh at parts.
Rest Of The Cast
Ganeshan as Vasu, Madhu as Babychan, Siddique as Thambichayan,
Swapna Menon as Mary and Nasar as Kadhalikattu Thirumeni have given
out a good performance, while Harisree Asokan as Kochukuttadan is
Cinematography by Tirru is wonderful at parts. Some camera shots
and angles are just awesome. Editing by TS Suresh is just ok, where
some scenes are even cut off without much sync with the next.
Dialogues by Dennis Joseph are not worth and fails to
Music by Vidyasagar is good. There are a total of three songs in
the movie, of which two of them ('Muthe ninne' and 'Koodilla
kuyilamme') are hummable. BGM of the movie is not new and is a
cliche of the several horror movies we have come across.
On the whole, Geethanjali fails to entertain and
horrify, even by following the same path of the usual horror
movies. Priyadarshan could have worked better on this movie, at
least to do justice to the tagline of a horror movie.
Give it a miss.
