Geetha is a 2019 Indian Kannada romantic action drama written and directed by debutant Vijay Naagendra starring Ganesh, Shanvi Srivastava and Prayaga Martin in lead roles[1]. Anup Rubens is scoring and composing music for the movie. Shreesha Kuduvalli is the DOP and Jnaanesh B Matad is the editor. The film derives its name from 1981 Kannada classic Geetha directed by Shankar Nag, however, the film team has clarified the content is very different and revolves around the famous Gokak Agitation.[2][3]

Plot[edit]
