Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Deverakonda’s Kushi opened to good reviews from fans and critics this week. The film released in theatres on September 1. Samantha, who is currently vacationing in California, shared a special post to thank fans for showering all the love on Kushi. The actress shared a bunch of pictures to talk about her mood before and after the release of the film. P.S: Don’t miss Samantha’s uber cool black leather jacket look. While the first snapshot featured her happy and smiling face, the second and third photographs showed Samantha all stressed out and glued to the mobile screen. In the carousel, she also shared a video, which captured fans’ reactions upon watching Kushi in the theatre. “You make me feel the luckiest girl alive,” Samantha quipped. In the caption, Samantha Ruth Prabhu wrote, “It never gets easier, it’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. Thank you for #Kushi. Picture 1- After the movie’s release. Picture 2 and 3 – Before (the stressssssssssss). Video 4 – You make me feel like the luckiest girl alive.”

The cast and crew of Kushi are celebrating the “blockbuster” response of fans from across the world. A few glimpses of the celebration were shared on the official Instagram handle of the production house Mythri Movie Makers. The snapshots feature the crew of Kushi, along with director Shiva Nirvana. In another snapshot, they were seen bursting crackers. “Team #Kushi is delighted and celebrated the blockbuster response from all across the world. Book your tickets now for the BLOCKBUSTER FAMILY ENTERTAINER,” read the caption.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Kushi 2.5 stars out of 5. He wrote, “Kushi, banking on the magnetism that Vijay Deverakonda (coming off the disastrous Liger and in need of a hit) exudes and the chemistry that he shares with Samantha (out to live down Shaakuntalam), wants to tell its audience that love conquers all, it spends a large portion of its 165-minute runtime emphasising that those who do not agree with each other will always struggle to live under one roof. If we take that supposition as a commentary on the fractious world that we live in today, is Kushi suggesting that acceptance, tolerance and respect for diversity aren’t ideals worth fighting for? It is probably not doing that because it is after a feel-good film that ends on an all-is-well-with-the-world note.”
After Kushi, Samantha Ruth Prabhu has the Indian version of Citadel lined up. The spy-thriller series has been created by Raj and DK. It also stars Varun Dhawan. On the other hand, Vijay Deverakonda will be collaborating with Mrunal Thakur for his next film, which has been temporarily titled VD13.
