Vilma wants to be a famous vlogger, and through the money she’ll make, she desires to buy a condominium. At the start of the film, we see that Vilma pulls a pregnancy prank on her mother. That video got many likes and motivated her to make great content. She just wants to make money as this is her ultimate goal.

Losing the single person she was close to had a great impact on her. She didn’t feel loved by her mother and thus turned to social media and various live streaming sites to gain attention. Amidst all the popularity she earned, she forgot her roots and had to face the consequences. There is a very thin line between fakeness and reality. Working day and night for gaining more followers, Vilma forgot her true self and felt lonely. She is a silly character who doesn’t realize the effect that things will have later on. She’s selfish, and that may not be wrong, but it becomes wrong when you do things that hurt others. Vilma learned this fact in a hard manner.

Meg is V’s cousin's sister and she was actually adopted by her family. She’s a simple and sweet girl who likes to focus on her career. Occasionally, she also likes to stream. Due to COVID-19, their classes are being conducted online. Meg shares a love-hate relationship with Gino. She also had a secret admirer by the username of CatBoy. She is left in total shock when she learns his real identity. The bond shared by these sisters is also great. Despite not being related by blood, Meg is always there to help V.

This romantic comedy shows us various things, like how teenagers often consider their parents their enemies and the effect of excessive social media presence on their personal life. There are no twists in the film that the audience already won’t be expecting. So you may watch this film to understand deeper things like unconditional love.

In my opinion, this will be the perfect film for the hopeless romantics. For those who like watching enemies turn into friends, this film is the right one. Being shot in limited locations, the movie will still be able to impress the audience. The actors have done great in their roles, especially Daniela Stranner (playing V) and Kaori Oinuma (playing Megumi). The boys are also charming, and the chemistry is great between the couples. Despite being a predictable film, you’ll feel lost in the world written by the writers of Love at First Stream.

Final Score – [7.5/10]
