  • Family Star OTT: ‘Family Star’ Makes Waves on OTT, Ranking No. 1 Nationally!

    The recent movie ‘Family Star,’ starring Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur and directed by Parasuram, debuted in theaters on April 5 but failed to impress audiences. The film flopped at the box office, resulting in significant financial losses for producer Dil Raju and attracted considerable negative attention on social media. In particular, Vijay became a prime target for criticism from his detractors, adding to the negative aura surrounding ‘Family Star.’ As a result, the film was quickly made available on OTT platforms. Despite its poor performance in theaters, ‘Family Star’ is achieving remarkable success on OTT, dominating viewership charts.

    Trending Nationally…

    Since its release on Amazon Prime on April 26, ‘Family Star’ has been a trending hit. Available in both Telugu and Tamil, the film quickly rose to the top of the trending list on Amazon Prime from its first day. Despite facing considerable trolling post-release on OTT, ‘Family Star’ has not lost momentum and continues to hold the No.1 position on Amazon’s national trending list. This achievement is particularly impressive given that its Hindi version has not yet been released, bringing joy to both Vijay’s fans and the film unit.

    Struggling with Consecutive Flops…

    Young actor Vijay Deverakonda has been unable to secure a hit since the success of ‘Geetha Govindam‘ in 2018. His later films, including ‘NOTA‘ (2018), ‘Dear Comrade‘ (2019), and ‘World Famous Lover‘ (2020), failed to meet expectations. His bid for Pan-India recognition with ‘Liger‘ (2022) ended in an overwhelming failure, and last year’s release, ‘Kushi‘ (2023), suffered a similar disappointment. Despite hopes that ‘Family Star’ would reverse his fortunes, it too proved to be a disappointment, grossing only about 20 crores against a budget of 50 crores.

    All Eyes on the Next Move!

    Vijay Deverakonda’s upcoming film, directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, is anticipated to be an action thriller. This high-budget project is being produced by Sithara Entertainments. Bhagyashree Borse has been confirmed as the lead actress, following considerations of Mamitha Baiju for the role. Currently, Vijay has high expectations for ‘VD12‘. Additionally, he is preparing to collaborate with director Ravikiran Kola on a forthcoming political action film, with production overseen by Dil Raju.
