The wait is over as the trailer for the highly-anticipated Kushi starring Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha Ruth Prabhu is out now. The upcoming Telugu film directed by Shiva Nirvana and blockbuster production banner Mythri Movie Makers is gearing up for a grand pan-Indian release on September 1 in cinemas worldwide in Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam languages as well. Kushi is currently one of the most-awaited films of 2023 and will see Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha play a married couple, and is the second time they are sharing the screen after appearing together in the Keerthy Suresh-starrer Mahanati (2018).
The Kushi trailer starts off with visuals showing Kashmir where we see Vijay Deverakonda falling head over heels in love with Samantha, who appears as a young Muslim woman. As we see him court her, it is revealed that she is not a Muslim as believed, and is instead a Brahmin hailing from south India. The Kushi trailer then sees both Vijay Deverakonda as Viplav and Samantha as Aaradhya introducing each other's families in order to get married, with their parents objecting to their union before they both decide to make it on their own together and live the life they want to. The scenes then shift to the happy instances and the pitfalls in a married relationship, the misunderstandings, and ego clashes interspersed with several cute and fun romantic moments between the two, with Jayaram, Sachin Khedakar, Murali Sharma, Lakshmi, Ali, Rohini, Vennela Kishore, Rahul Ramakrishna, Srikanth Iyengar and Saranya Pradeep forming the supporting cast.
Kushi is a special film for fans as it marks Samantha's last film of the year since she is currently on a break from acting for some time to focus on her health and recovery after she was diagnosed with a disease called myositis in 2022. The actress has already completed filming the projects she was committed to and there is quite a lot of excitement to witness her on the big screen once again. Kushi, which features music composed by Hesham Abdul Wahab, who became an overnight sensation for his work in the Malayalam blockbuster, Hridayam (2022), also includes Murali. G of Kaala and Sarpatta Parambarai fame as the cinematographer, while Prawin Pudi is the editor.
