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.

In his role as an entertainer, Vijay Deverakonda assumes the mindset and mannerisms of a man from the middle class. His portrayal of a family man is admirable.

As Indu, Mrunal Thakur does a fantastic job of capturing the character’s development both before and after the break. Charm is added to the proceedings by the on-screen chemistry of the lead combination.

The tunes are artistically pleasing and masterfully created for the big screen. Occasionally, there is comedy as well, which enhances the experience overall.

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 really 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 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 of time.


Overall, The Family Star provides some light entertainment. Excellent performances are given by Mrunal Thakur and Vijay Deverakonda. The film’s noticeable flaws, however, are its plodding narrative, shallow plot, lack of emotional nuance, and lackluster background music. Watching it this weekend can still be worthwhile if you can get beyond these issues.
