‘Dekho Re Dekho’ from Family Star is a groovy intro song for Vijay Deverakonda

Ahead of their film’s release, the makers of Family Star released a new single titled ‘Dekho Re Dekho’ at the pre-release ceremony on Tuesday. Family Star features Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur as the lead pair.

Composed by Gopi Sundar, ‘Dekho Re Dekho’ is a peppy intro song for the protagonist (Vijay Deverakonda) that playfully takes a jibe at his weaknesses and also understands his strengths. The composition begins with a catchy rap portion (performed by Jack Styles) before playback singer Hemachandra takes over the vocals. Anantha Sriram has penned the lyrics for the song. 

It is worth noting that this is the third time Gopi Sundar has composed music for a Vijay Deverakonda film; the previous two being Geetha Govindham (2018) and World Famous Lover (2020).  

Parasuram Petla, who had previously directed Vijay in Geetha Govindham, has written and directed Family Star. Actors Vennela Kishore, Jagapathi Babu, and Rohini Hattangidi are part of the supporting cast.  KU Mohanan is the cinematographer, while the cuts were handled by Marthand K Venkatesh. AS Prakash is the art director.

Dil Raju and Shirish have bankrolled the film under the banner of Sri Venkateswara Creations. Family Star is set to have a worldwide theatrical release on April 5.
