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

Manmadhudu 2 review


Nagarjuna’s latest rom-com ‘Manmadhudu 2’ directed by Chilasow fame Rahul Ravindran. Beautiful and talented actress Rakul Preet romanced Nag in the film. Manam Enterprises, Anand Arts, Viacom 18 have jointly bankrolled ‘Manmadhudu 2’.

Story: Sam(Nagarjuna) stays in Portugal, who doesn’t like to get married. however, his family members always compel him to get married. Thereafter, he sets up a bar waitress Avantika(Rakul Preet) to act as his girlfriend and introduces to his family. Avantika impresses all the family members. Therefore, they decide to get them married soon. On the marriage day, Avantika goes missing. Sam family members come to know that this is all drama. Sam’s mother gets a heart attack. Did Sam agree to get married? what happened to Avantika? forms the rest of the plot.


Sam(Nagarjuna) does the perfume business in Portugal. He decides not to get married because of a situation happened in the past. He sets up a girl to act as his girlfriend. This concept is seen in many old films. The film seems to be family entertainer, but at some points, the double meaning dialogues are presented which seem unnecessary. The kiss between Rakul and Jhansi is a bit bold. Rao Ramesh has entertained as usual with his performance. Sam’s mother Lakshmi and sister Jhansi, Devadarsini, Nishanti have justified their roles. Samantha and Keerthy Suresh’s entry were according to the situation. Director Rahul Ravindra has impressed everyone with his first film Chilasow, but now with Manmadhudu 2, he couldn’t impress hugely.

Rating: 2.5/5
