Coming up with a horror movie is one thing but mixing it with comedy and making it an enjoyable experience needs a lot of skill and talent. This film is one such example and it has worked well. The first half breezes very smoothly and it is filled with elements of comedy, some horror and also some emotion. The interval bang was interesting

Finally, Geethanjali backed up with good content and execution ends up as a good watch over the weekend. Although the Horror Comedy is dominated more by comedy than horror, that does not take away anything from it in making it a good entertainer.

It is in the second half the film drops pace and becomes a tad boring with its predictable nature. The flashback episode is especially very cliched and brings down the entire tempo. Soon it is elevated again largely thanks to the comedians effort and finally, a neatly handled climax ends things on a positive note. The film on the whole has a good engaging first half and a predictable but decent second half.

On the whole, Geetanjali has its good moments. It starts on a hilarious scale, but gets mellowed down during the second half which also becomes quite predictable. The presence of A list comedians, and some funny comedy in the first half makes Geetanjali definitely a one time watch.

First half of the film is entertaining and the interval point makes us to look forward for the second half with a great interest. The revelation in second half takes the horror factor out of the proceedings. But there is a twist in the tale. The second half should have been handled well. The entertainment in the first half and a few moments in the second half are enjoyable. We have to wait and see how the movie lovers lap the Geethanjali up.

Betting on horror thrillers is seen as safest in present day Tollywood only if makers have a right script. When there is most reliable Kona Venkat to help out on production, story expansion and screenplay, ‘Geethanjali’ can be considered as more than safe. Surely, every pie they have invested was visible on screen. However, ‘Geethanjali’ could have been a sure shot winner if Kona has devised a gripping second half with strong content. The quality treatment and technicalities shown in first half were completely missing in second half.

Director Raaj Kiran on debut came with hilarious horror story in the lines of Kanchana and Prema Katha Chitram. He extracted the optimum from entire cast and crew to entertain movie lovers. First half is hilarious to the core and second half though the entertainment quotient dipped, he made it up with right scenes to bring it back to track. Songs acted as speed breakers.

Geethanjali starts off with a slow-pace and there isn’t much story to narrate rather the makers filled it with entertainment in the form of Srinivas Reddy, Satyam Rajesh and Shakalaka Shankar. The first hour runs on comedy slightly focusing on the horror effects showcasing the zoom shots of the house and graveyard. Kona Venkat pens good one-liners. After the twist being revealed, the second hour turns extremely predictable also reminding us of Hindi film Om Shanti Om.

Barring the performances by lead actors and some comedy scenes, the film has nothing much to draw the audiences. The entire Brahmanandam comedy track could have been chopped off by the editor as it provides no value addition to the film.

Overall, Geethanjali is a good horror comedy movie and the first of the film is superb. If the director had maintained the thriller element in the second half, it could have been wonderful film

taring with Anjali, she has nothing much do with the film but did justice to whatever she was offered. The entire plot revolves around Srinivas Reddy and he performed really well. Probably you can this as the best performance of Srinivas Reddy. Brahmanandam character has been given much hype before the release of the film, but except for unmatched comedy, Brahmanandam never gets involved in the story and he is wasted. The makers seriously made a bad use of the star comedian.

Geethanjali falls short of publicized ‘Horror-Comedy’ genre. Anyway, one time watch for some decent fun in the first half.

Geetanjali hardly scares you or makes you jump out of the seat. There are neither tension filled scenes nor thrilling moments that are USP of a horror film. Director didn't rely on the horror element in spite of having everything set for it. He concentrated upon the comedy instead. There are some good comedy moments in the film that will have you in splits. But they are very few and far apart.

After watching the first half, Geethanjali looks like a worthy film but the feel is not same after interval. However, audience can take a chance and watch the movie specially for the comedy factor !!!

    predictable and slow second half spoiled a very good first half!
    Little care on the second would have done wonders.
    But now it turns to be a predicable flick with much onus on comedy.

    Verdict:One time watch,if you do not go by expectations
