Geeta Mera Naam (lit. Geeta is my name) is a 1974 Hindi movie produced by R K Nayyar. His wife Sadhana is the star and the director of the film. The film also stars Sunil Dutt, Feroz Khan, Helen and Rajendranath. The film's music is by Laxmikant–Pyarelal.


The film tells the story of four children who are separated at a fair and unknowingly reunite years later when Geeta (Sadhana) meets Nita (also Sadhana) in prison. Nita has been wrongly accused of murder. Geeta is then caught up in a scheme to find the true killer, which leads her to her brother Johnny's (Sunil Dutt) gang.

During the early 1970s, Sunil Dutt's career as an actor was at a stand-still. It was Geeta Mera Naam that brought him into the limelight again. The anti-hero was reborn after a long gap of films like Mother India and Mujhe Jeene Do. Sunil Dutt's performance of Johnny was liked by the masses as he clearly stole the limelight. It was one of the best performances of his career.


The soundtrack was composed by Laxmikant–Pyarelal.[1]
