Vijay Deverakonda’s Geetha Govindam is a hot cake in the trade circles. Amidst huge exceptions, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s see whether it lives up to all the hype or not.
Govind(Vijay Devarakonda) is a well mannered job holder who wants to settle down with the girl of his dreams. He falls in love with Geetha(Rashmika) but to his bad luck, a small rift makes Geetha loose all the impression on him. Things become even worse for Govind when Geetha’s brother decides to marry his own sister. Rest of the story is as to how Govind manages to solve all his problems and wins his love back.
One of the major plus points of the film is Vijay Deverakonda’s characterization and his impressive comedy timing. The way he pulled off Govindam’s role is totally convincing and evident that he will emerge as a massive star in the future. Vijay is just adorable and makes you fall in love with his role at the first instance itself.
Heroine Rashmika is good in her strong role and brings depth to the proceedings with her amazing screen presence. Her chemistry with Vijay is just crackling and their romantic moments light up the screen in a big way.
Comedian Rahul Ramakrishna shines yet again with his comedy punches in the first half. In the past, the audience would just burst out into laughter after seeing Brahmanandam. The same is happening these days with Vennela Kishore who lifts the film totally in the climax making things even more entertaining.
After a very entertaining first half things get a bit slow in the later part with some routine break up scenes. This is where the film slows down a bit with some dull narration.
The film’s audio is a huge hit among the movie lovers but the songs could have been shot in a more lavish and romantic manner. Naga Babu and his dubbing is horrible.
Production values by Geetha Arts are top notch as they spent what is required for the film. The cinematography is good as every frame in the film looks very grand and rich. Music by Gopi Sundar is top notch and give an edge to the film. Editing is decent and so was the production design.
Coming to the director Parasuram, he has done a good job with the film. The story is simple but he packaged it nicely with worthy entertainment and showcased Vijay in amazing way which will win the hearts of the audience in a big way.
On the whole, Geetha Govindam is a well made romantic comedy which lives up to all the hype and expectations. It has rich entertainment at regular intervals and there is no denying the fact that Vijay Devarakonda will reach to the top bracket of stars as he is a terrific actor who can portray any role and is adorable in this film. If you ignore the slightly slow pace in the second half, this film has success written all over it and will entertain you thoroughly. Go for it.
