CAST & CREW


MORE CAST & CREW



Dev” is an adventure thriller with action and romance elements. Karthik Sivakumar, Rakul Preet Singh, Ramya Krishnan, Prakash Raj, “ Vigneshkanth,” Vamsi Krishna, Renuka and Karthik Muthuraman are in the star cast. Rajath Ravishankar directed the film. “ Velraj” cranked the camera and “ Antony L Ruben” edited the film. Harris Jayaraj composed the songs and the Background score. Prince Pictures produced the film on a large scale.

Plot

Dev resides in Ukraine. He is a passionate photographer, who loves adventures. He comes to India and there he meets Meghna, who is from San Francisco. Dev is brought up by his dad Ramalingam and Meghna by her entrepreneur mother, Padmavati. Dev’s friend makes him meet Meghna. Meghna has no time for romance. But, Dev has to make an adventure and bring some magic between him and her. Did he succeed? Watch the film to know the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Karthi is a natural performer and he had done his part well. He has proved once again that he is a director’s artist. Rakul Preet looks cute and she fits in the role well too. It is unfortunate to see the talented stars Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishnan, who were just used as the materials and they don’t have much value. Vigneshkanth’s comedy is okayish is some places.

Analysis

The film starts in a promising note, but it didn’t continue as such. The visuals by Velraj are quite impressive and the travel-based genre is really a treat to his camera and for the audiences too. Coming to the music, Harris Jayaraj impresses the audiences with his BGM. But, the songs are not placed well in the second half. Although the film has some cute interactions, the romance between Karthi and Rakul, it didn’t bring any big impact.

What’s There?

  • A different attempt by Karthi
  • BGM and cinematography are impressive
  • Karthi and Rakul make a good pair

What’s Not There?

  • Talented senior stars are wasted
  • Is it a love story, action story or adventure story? The genre is not well set

Verdict

With the cool visuals and performances, Dev hits the screen. This film might be a treat to Karthi fans. It is not sure if it would attract the general audience. If you get time, just try it once!
