One of the main attractions of Kushi is the chemistry between the lead pair, Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The actors share a natural rapport and complement each other well on screen. They portray their characters with ease and charm, making the audience root for their romance. Vijay plays Viplav, a Mani Ratnam fan who works in BSNL and dreams of living a fairy-tale love story in Kashmir. Samantha plays Aradhya, a conservative girl who follows her father’s religious teachings. The actors bring out the contrast and conflict between their characters convincingly.

Another highlight of Kushi is the music composed by Hesham Abdul Wahab, who makes his debut in Telugu cinema. The music director delivers a feel-good soundtrack that suits the mood and tone of the film. The songs are catchy and melodious, especially the romantic duets ‘Na Rojaa Nuvve’ and ‘Yedhaki Oka Gaayam’. The background score also enhances the scenes with its subtle variations. The music of Kushi is one of the reasons to watch the film.

Shiva Nirvana, who made his debut with Ninnu Kori and followed it up with Majili, returns with his third film Kushi. The director shows his flair for handling romance dramas with a touch of comedy. He also tries to explore the theme of ideological differences and how they affect relationships. However, he does not go deep into the issue and keeps it at a superficial level. He focuses more on making the film a light-hearted entertainer that appeals to the family audience. He also pays tribute to Mani Ratnam and AR Rahman by recreating some of their iconic scenes and music in the film.
