Review : The Family Star: A languid family drama

The Family Star is a movie that will be released on April 5, 2024. IMDB Rating: 5.1 out of 5 stars are Mrunal Thakur, Vasuki, Abhinaya, Jagapathi Babu, Vennela Kishore, and Vijay Deverakonda. Director: Petla Parasuram Producers: Dil Raju Directors of Music: Gopi Sundar Film director: KU Mohanan Editor: Venkatesh Marthand


An architect from humble beginnings, Govardhan (Vijay Deverakonda) is committed to helping his brothers and their families. His life takes a dramatic change when a student named Indu (Mrunal Thakur) moves into his house as a tenant. But just when things appear to be going well, Govardhan receives a startling admission from Indu. What is her relationship to his life, and who is she? As the narrative develops, the answers to these queries become clear, and this is something that must be seen on a large screen.

Bonus Points

Entertainer Vijay Deverakonda portrays a man from the middle class, adopting the attitudes and actions characteristic of his social class. He gives a very good portrayal of the family moments.

Mrunal Thakur does a fantastic job conveying the development of the character both before and after the break. The on-screen chemistry between the principal actors makes the action more endearing.

On the big screen, the songs have a strong sense of composition and aesthetic appeal. A little comedy thrown in also makes the whole experience even more enjoyable.

Negative Points

In this genre, one would expect emotionally charged, gripping sequences. But the movie doesn’t succeed in presenting these kinds of scenes. Family Star isn’t memorable, even if Dil Raju says it’s a meaningful love story.

Although there is room for emotional nuance, the film mostly lacks it. Several sections felt drawn out because Parasuram Petla gave the screenplay little attention.

The background score by Gopi Sundar is unimpressive, and the song placement seems out of place. A couple of situations in the second half make for a less enjoyable watch than in the first.

Vennela Kishore’s skill is misused in the comedy, which falls short of making enough people laugh. The story is further undermined by Jagapathi Babu’s little screen time and the appearance of other characters for brief periods. The script has a few gaps in it as well.

Technical Details:

Parasuram The storyline and directing by Petla are weak and cohesive, and they don’t engage the audience. While Gopi Sundar’s songwriting is good, it doesn’t always elevate the right moments. Although the production elements and cinematography are respectable, the editing should be strengthened for a smoother narrative flow.


The Family Star generally provides some entertainment value. Mrunal Thakur and Vijay Deverakonda give excellent performances. However, the film’s weak premise, inadequate background score, slow-paced writing, and lack of emotional depth are its main flaws. It could still be worthwhile to see this weekend if you can get beyond these issues.
