The success of his two directorials – Love Mocktail and Love Mocktail 2 – has ensured that Darling Krishna still holds a decent market, as far as satellite and digital rights of his films go, even though, none of his other projects between these two and thereafter, have worked at the box office. This is also why the makers of his latest, Love Birds, were able to sell the TV and streaming rights before its theatrical release. While Star Suvarna holds the satellite rights, Amazon Prime Video is the streaming partner.

The film, which opened in theatres on February 17, has received mixed reviews, and show counts have been on the decline. The makers have, however, broken even with the post-theatrical and first weekend revenue, according to industry trackers, with the satellite and digital rights bringing in Rs 4 crore. The buzz on social media is that the film will drop on the streamer within a month of its theatrical release, with March 17 the likely date as of now. Considering that even Darshan’s film Kranti is set to be on Prime Video before the 30-day mark, Love Birds may also make it earlier.


Directed by PC Shekar, Love Birds is the story of a newly-married couple, who begin to squabble over minor stuff, which, eventually snowballs into a major issue and leads to their separation even. The film examines how traumatic such separation can be, especially if there are joint assets as well. Darling Krishna is paired with his wife Milana Nagaraj in the film, a conscious decision by Shekar, who was hoping to replicate the Love Mocktail magic of the couple. The film also stars Samyukta Hornad, as their divorce attorney, Rangayana Raghu and Veena Sundar as Krishna’s parents and Sadhu Kokila as Milana’s father.

Prior to the film’s release, the buzz surrounding the film was lukewarm, as netizens felt that the pairing of Krishna and Milana had reached a saturation point. Moreover, Krishna’s characterisation in most of his recent films lacked imagination, with the actor looking the same in all of them. For Love Birds, though, it is his easy-going chemistry with Milana that has worked and managed to salvage the film to some extent.
