One such movie is the Nagarjuna and Girija starrer Geethanjali (1989.) This Mani Ratnam directorial was released on this day, 32 years ago.
As Geethanjali completes 32 years, let us look back at this classic movie. Geethanjali is a romantic melodrama which starred Nagarjuna and Girija. They play the star crossed lovers Prakash and Geethanjali respectively. While the movie has a tragic undertone to it as both the leads have terminal conditions, Geethanjali resonated with the audience due to the authentic and pure love it portrayed. Mani Ratnam has a knack for crafting love stories that transcend time and Geethanjali is a fine example of that. Geethanjali was one of the initial movies in the career of Nagarjuna and definitely one of the most iconic. With this movie, Nararjuna established himself as the lover boy of Telugu cinema. The chemistry Nagarjuna and Girija shared is unparalleled. The soothing music by Ilaiyaraaja is icing on the cake for Geethanjali.
