Geetha Govindam tells an atypical story using a regular format. And it works. Parusuram enlivens the proceedings by infusing comedy at almost every step. Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika elevate the film with their splendid performances.
Hindustan Times Rating: 3.5
Geetha Govindam is not about universe conspiring to bring you close to your loved ones, it is about how coincidences can come to bite your behind.
Chitramala Rating: 2.5
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.
