World Famous Lover movie review World Famous Lover movie review: The Vijay Deverakonda film is expected to dominate the Telugu box office.

Vijay Deverakonda starrer World Famous Lover hits the screens today. Known for his work in Arjun Reddy and Dear Comrade among others, Deverakonda has made a name for himself with romantic dramas. As the title suggests, World Famous Lover is also a love story, but this might be the last love story for Deverakonda for the time being. The actor said, “World Famous Lover will be my last love story for a while.”

Alongside Deverakonda, the film also stars Raashi Khanna, Catherine Tresa, Izabelle Leite and Aishwarya Rajessh. It has been directed by K Kranthi Madhav.

In a media interaction in Hyderabad, Vijay Deverakonda spoke about the comparisons of his upcoming film with Arjun Reddy and said, “Even if I grow a beard for an action film or a science-fiction movie, people will still compare it to Arjun Reddy. It is unavoidable for me. Arjun Reddy is a kind of film that will be remembered for generations. So, I am not concerned about people comparing my new films with it. We can show the variations in love stories as well.”

Deverakonda added, “Geetha Govindam and Arjun Reddy are love stories that are very different from each other. In World Famous Lover (WFL), you will see three different love stories, and one of them shares a similarity with Arjun Reddy. But, overall, it has a unique format. I have never seen this kind of film before.”

World Famous Lover: Our verdict

World Famous Lover is not a cheesy romantic story about a man hurting from inside and fighting to win back the love of his life. It is an indictment of the male gaze that fails to see the other side of the story: women.

'Tough to ignore Arjun Reddy hangover'

User @pudiharicharan posted on Twitter, “#WorldFamousLover - Kranthi Madhav explores different phases of love through the eyes of a writer and as much as he tries hard, it's tough to ignore the Arjun Reddy hangover, especially in the second half and climax. It's the overall great performances that really makes it work.”

'Average movie'

“#WorldFamousLover I'll keep it short and simple.. why is Vijay Deverakonda doing the same movies again and again.. why only romantic movies?? Try something new.. you are talented but this movie I tell you is average.. 2 out of 5.. one time watch..nothing new.. nothing different!!,” shared user @PnutB29 on Twitter.

'Unconving narration'

User @varunkilaru tweeted, “#WFL - When the actor knows the backstory but the audience does not see it, the result is  #WorldFamousLover! Vijay shows pain that the audience doesn’t feel making us feel like he went overboard. All in all, the film disappoints with an unconvincing/conviction less narration!.”

'Watch it for Aishwarya Rajesh and Vijay Devarakonda'

User @fridayfreeks posted on Twitter, “#WorldFamousLover is watchable. The story of VJD @TheDeverakonda & AR @aishu_dil is the best among the three. Direction could have been better. Performances from Vijay and Aishwarya are very very good. Go and watch it for this story.”

'Aishwarya Rajesh steals the show'
