Following his knockout performance in Arjun Reddy, which made him an overnight sensation, Vijay Deverakonda treads a very familiar and safe path in Parasuram’s Geetha Govindam.

As easy as it sounds to make a rom-com, we’ve often seen filmmakers try and fail when it comes to successfully executing a “breezy entertainer” in Tollywood. With an adorable looking lead pair and some great music, Geetha Govindam is thoroughly entertaining.

We are introduced to Vijay Govind (Vijay Deverakonda), a college lecturer, who dreams of getting married and settling down with a woman. While on his quest to find a girl, he runs into Geetha (Rashmika Mandanna). He likes her immediately, but she remains cold and distant as they go on a bus journey together. He makes a big mistake, that not only derails his entire love story but could also potentially impact his relationship with his father (Naga Babu) and soon to be brother-in-law (Subba Raju). The dialogues work and the humour is excellent, keeping you hooked in just when you begin to lose interest.

Vijay Deverakonda owns this film. He’s charming as ever and seamlessly fits the part as Vijay Govind. Rashmika too sparkles in her debut. The dialogues work and the humour is excellent, keeping you hooked in just when you begin to lose interest. Gopi Sundar is in top form and the music stays with you right through, enhancing your viewing experience. Despite its predictable nature, the movie keeps the audience engaged and entertained. If you love rom-coms, you’re going to lap this up. Go for it!
