DEV review | Karthi, Rakul Preet Singh | Harris Jayaraj | SPICE ANDHRA

DEV review

Hero Karthi garnered good response among Telugu audience with movies Awara, Naa peru siva, Oopiri, Khaki. Hit pair Karthi and Rakul Preet have teamed up for the second time in romantic action entertainer Dev, which is directed by Rajat Ravishankar. Prakash Raj, Ramya Krishna, Nikki Gilrani are playing prominent roles in Dev, produced by S Lakshman Kumar.

Story: Dev(Karthi) is a person who listens to his heart always. He decides to go on a quest of adventure and sets out for it. On the other hand Meghana(Rakul) is juxtaposed, she always indulges in work and office. These two distinct characters meet accidentally. Dev falls in love with Meghana, but she doesn’t care about him. The rest story forms how Dev faced hurdles to win Meghana’s love.

Plus points:

Karthi, Rakul Preet

Vel Raja Cinematography

Minus points:

Story, screenplay


First half


Karthi has immensely indulged in his character and gave super performance. Similarly, Rakul was apt to her role as Meghana. As they have worked earlier in Khaki and proved to be on screen hit pair, so this time also they have sizzled the screen with their vibrant chemistry. Vel Raja’s cinematography is remarkable in Dev. Director Rajat Ravishankar tried to present an old story in new way, but it seems to be a letdown. The comedy too is not up to the mark, instead it tests once patience. Even the veteran actors Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishna characters were misused. Overall, the film Dev is dull romantic drama, except Karthi and Rakul unreal chemistry which is fabulous.

Rating – 2/5
