    Geethanjali Malli Vachindi Review: Did the Sequel to Geethanjali Keep Audiences Laughing?

    April 13, 2024

    Editor: Chota K Prasad

    Producer: Kona Film Corporation, MVV Cinemas

    The prominent heroine Anjali played the lead role in the previously released film “Geethanjali,” which was a success. Now, a sequel titled “Geethanjali Malli Vachindi” has been released. Along with Anjali, Srinivas Reddy, Satyam Rajesh, and Ali played major roles. The already released trailer and teaser have been captivating. The film was released to the audience on April 11. Did this film delight the audience like its prequel did? Let’s examine this in this review.

    What’s the Story?

    Director Srinivas (Srinivas Reddy) faces financial troubles after a string of flop films. To make ends meet, he continues to take money from his friend Ayan (Satya), promising to cast him as a hero. Amid some dramatic developments, Satya gets an opportunity to act as a hero in a film. Anjali, who runs a resort in Ooty, agrees to act as the heroine. However, the producer sets a condition that the shooting must take place in Sangeeth Mahal, known as a haunted palace. What happened next? What is the history of Sangeeth Mahal? What challenges did Srinu and his team face while shooting in the palace? This is the story.

    How did they perform?

    Prominent actress Anjali, as always, impressed with her excellent acting in pivotal scenes. Her expressions in some horror scenes are particularly striking. Director Srinivas Reddy, Shakalaka Shankar, Satyam Rajesh, and Sreekanth Ayyangar all justified their roles. Satya, as Ayan, and Sunil, as the cinematographer Nani, brought lots of laughs. Their characters are a major attraction in the film. Rahul Madhav, appearing as the antagonist Vishnu, also delivers a commendable performance.

    How’s the Direction?

    For this sequel, Director Shiva Turlapati crafted a film that even those who haven’t seen the first part can understand. The first half primarily introduces the characters, but the real story begins once they reach Sangeeth Mahal. The director effectively portrays the history of the Mahal and the backstory of the Nataraja family, which has turned into ghosts. The inclusion of interlude scenes in the second half increases the suspense, balancing moments of laughter with scares. However, the story does stretch logic in many aspects, and the strong emotions are lacking. The plot, written by Kona Venkat, lacks significant highlights. The dialogues are somewhat updated to match current trends. Overall, Director Shiva has done justice to his role to a certain extent.

    Technically Speaking

    As for the technical department, the cinematography was a big plus for the film. Sujatha Siddharth’s camera work greatly complemented this horror-comedy. Praveen Lakkaraju’s background music is commendable. The editing was a bit slow in the first half but improved in the second half. The production values are high and appropriate for the film.

    Plus Points

    • Anjali’s acting
    • Comedy scenes
    • Some horror elements

    Minus Points

    • Weak story
    • Illogical scenes Rating: 2.5/5
