Telugu Movies 'The Family Star' and 'Tillu Square' Announce OTT Release Dates and Platforms

The highly anticipated Telugu movies 'The Family Star' and 'Tillu Square' have finally revealed their OTT premiere dates and streaming platforms. Both films are set to premiere on April 26, 2024, creating a potential faceoff between the two Telugu releases.

'The Family Star', starring Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur, will be accessible for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The heartwarming film explores the everyday struggles and triumphs of a middle-class family, with Deverakonda's character Govardhan reflecting the challenges faced by the middle class. Despite a lackluster performance at the box office, earning only Rs 35 crore on a budget of Rs 50 crore, the film is expected to resonate with audiences on the streaming platform.

Director Parasuram Petla expressed that 'The Family Star' is a "very special" story that will touch hearts and inspire viewers to cherish their familial bonds. Deverakonda described his character as an "ideal yet real hero" who shoulders the responsibility of his family, while Thakur called the film a "heartfelt ode to the power of love and the unbreakable ties that bind families together."

On the same day, 'Tillu Square', the sequel to the hit comedy 'DJ Tillu', will become available on Netflix. The dark romantic comedy promises laughter and thrills, with Siddhu Jonnalagadda reprising his role as the hilarious DJ Tillu. The film, which has already crossed the ₹125 crore mark at the box office, also stars Anupama Parameswaran, Muralidhar Goud, Murali Sharma, and Neha Shetty in pivotal roles.

Why this matters: The simultaneous OTT release of 'The Family Star' and 'Tillu Square' highlights the growing importance of streaming platforms for Telugu cinema. As the demand for entertainment soars, it's crucial for filmmakers to adapt and gain audience attention across various mediums.

With no notable theatrical releases since these two films, all eyes are on their OTT performance. 'The Family Star' and 'Tillu Square' will be available for streaming in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, and Hindi languages, catering to a wide audience across India and over 240 countries and territories worldwide. As the battle for viewership begins, it remains to be seen which film will emerge victorious on the digital platform.
