When hard work and luck come together, there happens a magic both in personal and professional life which takes us to a newer heights. There was a great buzz and lot of talk that happened about a movie last year which turned out to be a blockbuster and that movie is Arjun Reddy which made the careers of Vijay Devarakonda, Shalini Pandey, Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and many others involved with the movie. It gave a lot of energy to them and Vijay Deverakonda has become a rage in Youth and he is coming with Geetha Govindam under the direction of Parasuram and is produced by Bunnyvas under GA2 Production which co-stars Rashmika Mandanna. Lets see how it works on us as it is released into theatres today.
Govind (Vijay Devarakonda) is a simple and innocent guy who falls for Geetha (Rashmika Mandanna). He tries a lot and plans a lot to woo her to make her fall for him and his friend (Rahul Ramakrishna) is love guru for him. Geetha misunderstands him as a womaniser and starts to avoid and reject Govind blatantly. Then comes the point for Govind to clear misunderstandings by proving his character. Geetha never believes him despite of his trails and plans which vex Govind and he shouts and gets off her hangover. Do Geetha and Govind come together? This forms rest of the story.
Cast and performance
Vijay Devarakonda is nice in the role of Govind which is a pure contrast role for his previous Arjun Reddy. He is simple in his role and got it right. Rashmika Mandanna is simply awesome in her role as Geetha. She has given her best performance and made her role stronger with her portrayal. Nithya Menon and Anu Emmanuel surprises us with their small cameos. Nagababu has done fine job. Vennela Kishore and Annapurnamma are hilarious. Subbaraj is good. Rahul Ramakrishna as love guru to Vijay Devarakonda is good. All other actors has played their part well.
Story of Geetha Govindam is weak and Screenplay is mediocre. Dialogues to lack the depth or punch and they appear shallow. Lyrics are well written.
Songs composed by Gopi Sunder are nice and this album is one of the best in Gopi Sunder’s Telugu music career. He did a good work in composing background score. Cinematography by Manikandan is nice. Visuals are the film are delight to eyes with vibrant colors, rich production values and good art work. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh is fine.

Some comedy sequences
Geetha Govindam is a love story of misunderstanding and innocence. An innocent guy tries falls for a girl who writes off him as a bad guy or womaniser or whatever the bad terms they can know. Vijay Deverakonda is that innocent bad guy and we find it too artificial to believe as we have greater influence of Arjun Reddy and Rashmika Mandanna is the girl. Director Parasuram has done pretty okay work with this movie. He was well appreciated for the dialogues he wrote for his previous movies and this movie lacks good dialogues and strong story at first place. He chose a simple template story and has woven a love story around it. Though first half of the movie seems fine for the comedy and timing of Vijay Devarakonda and his chemistry with Rashmika, second half plays the spoilsport. It is purely saved by the comedy and weak script and writing is disadvantage here. To sum up, Geetha Govindam is a one time watchable movie which is saved by Vijay Devarakonda.
