Where did you watch this movie?

This touching tale follows the adventures of a beautiful five-year-old girl, Geethu (Shamili), whose parents (played by Murali and Geetha) get divorced, so she now lives with her mom and spends a few days with her dad by the court's order. She becomes friendly with Nandan (Jayaram), the driver of her school bus. During her vacation, Geethu decides to go to Nandan's village without informing her parents. Nandan's sister (played by Rekha) had recently lost her daughter, who was the same age as Geethu, when she drowned in the village river. Nandan's lover is Thulasi (Sunitha}. Geethu wins the heart of everyone in the village and becomes the center of attention there. Meanwhile, her parents are worried about their missing child and are searching for her everywhere. Finally, they learn where Geethu is and come to the village to retrieve her. Geethu also falls into the river — the same way Nandan's niece drowned — but is rescued by Nandan. What kind of impact will the terrible shock and trauma of almost losing their daughter have on Geethu's parents?
