Family Star Movie Review, Rating, Story, Cast and Crew

A family tale doesn't require an extraordinary narrative. The inclusion of family ties and sentiments alone can create a complete cinematic experience. Family Star offers nothing groundbreaking; it presents a straightforward plot. Vijay Deverakonda and Dil Raju agreed to be a part of this film due to their unwavering faith in Parasuram, the director of Geetha Govindam. Vijay portrays a young individual burdened with the responsibility of caring for his family, while Mrunal takes on the role of someone who manipulates her family for personal gain. Vijay Deverakonda's portrayal of a middle-class individual is bound to captivate the audience, thanks to his impeccable body language and attire that perfectly aligns with his character. Govardhan's character appears impressive, although the film cannot solely revolve around him. Unfortunately, Family Star lacks a strong emotional connection.

The interval sequence manages to pique interest, but the conflict between Vardhan and Indu seems trivial. The flashback scene depicting Vardhan's alcoholic brother fails to leave a lasting impact. The director should have dedicated more effort to developing such episodes. Parasuram, a skilled writer, is more than capable of crafting emotionally charged content, yet Family Star falls short in this aspect. Even the second half of the film proves to be dull and devoid of emotion. The chemistry between the main actors is occasionally commendable. However, the latter half of the film bears a resemblance to television dramas. If the conflict point lacks strength, the latter half of any movie tends to be lackluster and uninteresting. Mrunal's character lacks significance in the latter portion of the film.

The action sequences are well-executed, but the circumstances leading up to the fights fail to leave a lasting impression. The conversation between Jagapathi Babu and Vijay Deverakonda serves as the conclusion of the film, but it is needlessly prolonged by an additional 20 minutes. The climax fight lacks prominence. The song "Kalyani Vacha Vacha" is played during the closing credits of the film. The climax segment featuring Family Star appears rather lackluster.


Vijay Devarakonda's appearance on screen was impressive and fitting. He effortlessly portrayed the role of Govardhan, embodying the essence of a perfect family man. While Mrunal Thakur possessed undeniable beauty, her character lacked impact. In certain scenes, she appeared older than Vijay. Her role became insignificant in the latter half of Family Star. Jagapathi Babu portrayed a wealthy father, but his role felt routine and reminiscent of his past performances. Vennela Kishore's character had little significance, and Rohini's role was also limited. The remaining cast members had restricted roles as well.

When writers transition into directors, the script becomes an ideal package with a captivating screenplay. The conflicts within the story become compelling and substantial. Unfortunately, Parasuram's attempt with Family Star fell flat and failed completely. Although the dialogues were occasionally good, the visuals were visually appealing, and each frame exuded richness, the songs failed to leave an impact. Gopi Sundar's music also failed to meet expectations. In many aspects, Family Star is a film that disappoints.

Final Word

Vijay Deverakonda and his team delivered one more disappointment with Family Star.
