Story:

Sreenu  (Srinivas Reddy), a director who once tasted success with his debut film, finds himself struggling after delivering two consecutive flops. Along with his loyal team of writers, Atreya and Arudra (Satyam Rajesh and Shakalaka Shankar), they face the harsh realities of the film industry. However, fate intervenes when they receive a lifeline from Vishnu (Rahul Madhav), an industrialist based in Ooty, offering them a chance to redeem their careers. With renewed hope, Sreenu and his team, accompanied by an aspiring hero named Ayaan (Satya), arrive in Ooty. At Vishnu's insistence, they choose the secluded and enigmatic Sangeet Mahal, a mansion perched atop a hill, as the location for their new project. To complete their team, they enlist the help of their friend Anjali (Anjali), who runs a local coffee shop. As filming begins in Sangeet Mahal, their initial excitement quickly turns into unease as they encounter a series of strange and inexplicable events. The mansion seems to hold secrets, and the team finds themselves caught in a web of mystery and supernatural occurrences. The arrival of Ventriloquist Venkatarao (Ali) and Killer Nani (Sunil) adds further intrigue to the plot. What connection do they have to the mansion's haunting secrets? Will Sreenu and his team uncover the truth behind the eerie happenings? Geethanjali Malli Vachindi promises a suspenseful and comedic journey as the characters navigate the challenges of filmmaking while unraveling the mysteries of the haunted Sangeet Mahal.

Geethanjali Malli Vachindi Movie Review

Analysis:

Geethanjali Malli Vachindi unfortunately falls short of expectations, offering a disappointing cinematic experience despite its promising premise. The film suffers from a multitude of weaknesses, including a lackluster script, uninspired performances, and underwhelming technical aspects.

Anjali, despite marking her 50th film with this project, is given a limited and underwhelming role that fails to showcase her talent. Her character lacks depth, and her dialogue delivery, characterized by shrill shrieking, detracts from the overall experience.

The comedic elements of the film fail to hit the mark, with Srinivas Reddy, Satyam Rajesh, and Shakalaka Shankar failing to evoke laughter. Ali's character adds to the disappointment, irritating viewers rather than entertaining them. Satya and Sunil offer some respite with their comedic timing in the second half, but their efforts are not enough to salvage the film's humor.

Kona Venkat's story feels outdated and unoriginal, relying on the tired tropes of a haunted mansion and dancing ghosts. Director Shiva Turlapati's narration fails to engage the audience, and the characters lack depth and development. The predictable climax further contributes to the film's overall underwhelming impact.

The technical aspects of the film fail to impress. Praveen Lakkaraju's music and background score lack memorability, while Sujatha Siddharth's cinematography is below average. The VFX is disappointing, and Chota K Prasad's editing is ineffective. The dialogues feel outdated and routine, and the production values are below par.

Geethanjali Malli Vachindi Movie Review

Geethanjali Malli Vachindi had the potential to be an entertaining horror-comedy, but it ultimately falls victim to weak storytelling, uninspired performances, and underwhelming technical elements. The film represents a missed opportunity and a disappointing entry in the careers of its cast and crew.

Verdict:

Anjali's hopes for a triumphant comeback with her 50th film, Geethanjali Malli Vachindi, were unfortunately dashed as the movie turned out to be a disappointing and forgettable venture. The film's stale scenes, nonsensical story, and lackluster screenplay and direction left viewers with a sense of frustration and boredom. Instead of marking a significant milestone in her career, Geethanjali Malli Vachindi became a regrettable experience for both Anjali and the audience.
