The movie Geeta Sakshigaa, starring Aadarsh and Chitra Sukla in the lead roles, has been released on the auspicious occasion of Ugadi. Here’s a review of the movie.


The protagonist of the film, Arjun (played by Aadarsh), works as a DJ in a popular pub in Hyderabad and enjoys a happy life with his family. However, things take a drastic turn when he falls in love with Amoolya (played by Chitra Sukla) and is suddenly arrested by the police for allegedly raping and murdering an innocent girl. The story takes a leap of 5 years, and ACP Roopesh (played by Roopesh Shetty) reopens the case to uncover the truth behind the heinous crime. The film explores the question of whether Arjun is truly guilty or if he was framed by someone else. As the investigation progresses, the ACP discovers crucial information that sheds light on the real culprit. To know how the story unfolds and who is the actual offender, one must watch the movie.

Plus Points:

Despite being his debut film, Aadarsh delivers an impressive performance and showcases remarkable dancing and fighting skills.

Chitra Sukla’s role in Geeta Sakshigaa extends beyond just romancing the lead in songs, as she has a substantial role, particularly in the second half. Her portrayal in the courtroom scenes is especially noteworthy, making this her best Telugu film to date.

Srikanth Iyengar, who portrays Lawyer Joseph, has fewer scenes but leaves a lasting impact with his powerful dialogue delivery and body language.

Other important characters played by Roopesh Shetty, Bharani Shankar, Anitha Chowdhary, and Sudarshan also receive justifiable performances.

Minus Points:

Geeta Sakshigaa’s story, penned by producer Chetan Raj, feels very typical and reminiscent of numerous old movies that dealt with similar themes. The film’s makers claim that it is based on true events, but director and screenplay writer Anthony Mattipalli could have done better in terms of narration. With a more engaging screenplay, the movie could have been an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Unfortunately, the director missed a golden opportunity to turn this average story into something extraordinary. Furthermore, there are several loopholes in the script.

The courtroom scenes are watchable, but they lack intensity due to the actors’ performances. The director should have cast more notable actors who fit the judges’ roles better. If the courtroom scenes, especially in the second half, were written more effectively, the movie’s outcome would have been different.

The director failed to make good use of actors such as Raja Ravindra and Nellore Sudarshan. Instead of dragging out the love track, the director could have replaced it with some comedic scenes.

Moreover, the emotional scenes in the film did not resonate well with the audience. If Anthony Mattipalli had included dialogues that highlighted the challenges women face in their daily lives, the movie could have been more impactful emotionally.


Overall, Geeta Sakshigaa is an average film with a lackluster plot and uninspiring narration. However, Aadarsh and Chitra Sukla deliver impressive performances. The first half of the movie contains some dull moments that may bore the audience. Despite these shortcomings, Geeta Sakshigaa is worth a watch this Ugadi.

Rating: 2.5/5
