“Kushi,” the highly anticipated pan-Indian romantic drama, has finally made its theatrical debut, starring the talented duo of Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, with direction by Shiva Nirvana. This film has generated considerable excitement, and early screenings have already garnered positive feedback, setting the stage for its theatrical run.
Netflix has secured the digital streaming rights for “Kushi,” marking another feather in the cap for this promising project. Produced by Mythri Movie Makers, the film boasts an impressive ensemble cast featuring Jayaram, Sachin Khedekar, Murali Sharma, Lakshmi, Ali, Rohini, Vennela Kishore, Rahul Ramakrishna, Srikanth Iyengar, and Saranya Pradeep, each contributing to the richness of the storytelling.
While “Kushi” has enjoyed a strong start overseas, its performance in India, especially in benefit shows, has been more modest. This can be attributed to the nature of the romantic genre, which typically doesn’t create the same fervor as action-packed blockbusters during early screenings.
However, the film’s positive reception and the upcoming weekend hold promise for robust domestic collections as more audiences flock to theaters, eager to experience this captivating love story on the big screen. With Hesham Abdul Wahab’s music adding another layer of charm, “Kushi” is poised to leave a lasting impression on Indian cinema-goers.
