With the conclusion of exams and the onset of summer vacations, Tollywood traditionally releases high-budget and star-studded films to cater to students and movie enthusiasts. However, this year, the summer lineup seems to be lacking in star power. In the absence of major hero releases in April 2024, it is expected that smaller-budget and mid-range hero films will attempt to capitalize on the summer season. Notably, a friendly competition has emerged between two young heroes: Vijay Deverakonda and Sidhu Jonnalagadda.

Vijay Deverakonda's 'Family Star': A Romantic Family Entertainer

Directed by Parashuram Petla, 'Family Star' stars Vijay Deverakonda in a family-oriented role. After the postponement of 'Devara' Part 1, the makers have officially announced the film's release on April 5. The romantic family entertainer features Mrinal Thakur and Divyansha Kaushik as the female leads. The film is bankrolled by Dil Raju under Sri Venkateswara Creations banner.

Sidhu Jonnalagadda's 'Tillu Square': A Youthful Romantic Comedy

Mallik Ram's 'Tillu Square' is a sequel to the 2021 blockbuster 'DJ Tillu.' Sidhu Jonnalagadda reprises his role as the titular Tillu in this youth-centric romantic comedy. Anupama Parameswaran plays the female lead in the film, which is produced by Naga Vamsi under the banners of Sitara Entertainments and Fortune Four Cinemas.

A Box Office Clash to Watch

The release of 'Family Star' and 'Tillu Square' just a week apart has set the stage for an intriguing box office clash. Both films have promising promotional content, with 'Tillu Square's trailer trending on social media.

'Family Star' enjoys the advantage of Vijay Deverakonda's star power and the success of his previous collaboration with director Parasuram on the blockbuster 'Geetha Govindam.' However, Sidhu Jonnalagadda's 'DJ Tillu' was a sleeper hit, and the sequel has created considerable buzz.

Both films are backed by established production houses and have strong pre-release buzz. The film with stronger word-of-mouth is likely to dominate the box office and kick off the summer movie season with a bang. However, if one film underperforms, it could potentially benefit the other.

The box office clash between 'Family Star' and 'Tillu Square' will determine which young hero will emerge victorious in providing the much-anticipated summer entertainment for moviegoers.
