CAST & CREW
People have started assuming that the period for horror flicks is over and that there is a dearth to such ideas in the South, but the movie ‘ Geethanjali’, which is a different effort by the director, has proven the notion false. One has to read the review to know how the movie fares among the audience.
The movie Geethanjali, is a horror comedy, in which the background is a haunted house in Hyderabad. An ardent filmgoer, Srinivasa Reddy, arrives in Hyderabad with a passion of directing movies. He moves into the house without knowing that it is haunted. Then, Anjali makes an appearance and the rest of the movie releases the mystery regarding the connection that Anjali has with the ghost.
Anjali looks beautiful on screen. Srinivasa Reddy is a good comedian in the movie. Rao Ramesh plays a pivotal role in the movie, and there is a guest appearance by Harshavardhan Rane. The other supporting actors are Brahmanandam and Shakalaka Shankar, who have done their roles to the level best.
The movie proves to be an edge of the seat thriller during the first half. It makes the audience wait with bated breath for the second half of the movie. Some scenes in the second half of the movie are very predictable. Dialogues by Kona Venkat are an asset to the movie. However, the numbers after the interlude fail to create an impression on the audience. The movie seems to have taken portions from the Bollywood flick, ‘ Om Shanti Om’, in an effort to make it watchable by the audience. The movie also lacks logic, but other positive features patch up for the flaws. Since the movie is aimed at being a comedy, there are no frightening scenes.
What is there?
1. The performances by all the actors in the movie are laudable.
2. There is a right mix of humor and thrill in the movie.
3. The cinematography is worth applauding with interesting scenes happening in the flat.
What is not there?
1. The scores in the movie are not worth remembering.
2. Background music is average.
3. The comedy is banal, and does not suffice the expectations among the audience.
The movie is worth a one-time watch.
