Karthi and Rakul Preet Singh
Story, Screenplay and Direction
Music and background score
Flat and dragged second half
Below average first half
Karthi looks stunning and energetic as Dev throughout the film. The actor loves fun, adventure and his body language suits the role well. Rakul Preet Singh is a stunner and she essayed the role of Meghna well. The chemistry between Karthi and Rakul should have a special mention. Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishna have been good and essayed their roles with perfection. All the other actors looked apt in their roles.
Dev has a lean plot and leaving the characterizations of the lead actors, the film has nothing strong and engaging. The screenplay and the dialogues make no impact and make the film fall flat. Especially the second half of Dev offers nothing and it happens on a snail pace. The music and the background score are just ok. The cinematography work stands out and the production values make the film look grand. The film’s director Rajath Ravi fails completely in all the available ways with Dev.
Dev is a poorly penned and badly executed drama that falls flat. Karthi and Rakul performed well in Dev and the film offers nothing interesting.
Rating : 2/5
