Geethanjali is a horror comedy film that has some commercial ingredients. Srinivasa Reddy and Anjali's performances are the main attractions of the film. Kona Venkat's engrossing screenplay and hilarious dialogues, Praveen Lakkaraju's music, Sai Sriram's cinematography and some comedy scenes are other highlights. A couple of unnecessary songs, cliched scenes and predictable plot in the second half are its big drawbacks.
Kona Venkat has a fresh and interesting storyline for
Geethanjali, but his screenplay lacks the freshness as
some scenes are inspired by old movies. The first half of the film
is very interesting with its high entertainment quotient and this
portion is the biggest strength of the film. But the director has
failed to maintain the same curiosity as he reveals the twist in
the second half following which the film turns predictable.
Srinu (Srinivasa Reddy) is an aspiring director and he comes to
Hyderabad to fulfill his dream. Along with his friend, he
unknowingly rents an apartment in the city. Once Srinu meets Anjali
(Anjali) in the same apartment and becomes good friend with her.
But soon he finds out a horrifying truth about her. What is that
truth? The rest of the film will answer this question.
Anjali has done brilliant performance in Geethanjali
and she rocks the audiences with her expressions. Character artiste
Srinivasa Reddy has a large screen presence and he has done justice
to his role. Shakalaka Shankar tickles the funny bones of the
viewers with his unique accent and histrionics. Satyam Rajesh,
Sapatagiri, Brahmanandam and Rao Ramesh have also
done their best for their roles.
Geethanjali has a brilliant production elements and
Praveen Lakkaraju's background score is the main highlight in the
technical front. His songs are also good. Sai Sriram's camerawork
is another big attraction of the film. The graphics and other
technical departments have also done commendable jobs. Editing is
good, but trimming certain scenes in the second half could have
made the film a much better viewing experience.
Overall, Geethanjali is a good horror comedy movie and
the first of the film is superb. If the director had maintained the
thriller element in the second half, it could have been wonderful
film. Continue to read Geethanjali review by
