US BO: The Family Star is a Dud

US BO: The Family Star is a Dud

When Vijay Deverakonda and director Parasuram first collaborated, they created a massive blockbuster.

Their first film together, "Geetha Govindam," was one of the all-time blockbusters in the United States, grossing $2.46 million.

But their second collaboration "The Family Star" is expected to gross around $1 million by the end of its run. The film's first weekend earnings are extremely low over $800k.

Despite extensive promotion and a big release, Vijay Deverakonda's film did not perform well in theaters. The songs were unimpressive, and the trailers failed to pique interest. It's no surprise that premiere shows drew no big crowds.

"Liger," which was a huge disaster, grossed nearly half a million dollars during its premiere shows. Vijay Deverakonda's previous film, "Kushi," grossed a whopping $474k from premiere shows and a lifetime total of $1.8 million.

However, "The Family Star" only made $282k from its premiere shows. This demonstrates that the film's promotional material failed to pique audiences' interest.

#FamilyStar: Thur: $282,814 Friday: $217,141. Saturday: $175, 256 Sun: $80k  Total gross: $760k

Meanwhile, "Tillu Square" is approaching $3 million. The film has grossed $2.7 million thus far.
