Actor Karthi, who has a decent fan following in Telugu is back with a stylish entertainer ‘Dev’. He teamed up with Rakul Preet Sing after ‘Khakee’, a period cop drama.
Let’s see whether the couple can recreate the ‘Khakee’ magic or not.
Dev (Karthi) is an adventure freak who loves to take challenges. On the other hand, Meghana (Rakul Preet), a rich businesswoman with an idealistic mindset and wastes no time for love.
Two completely contrasting characters Dev, and Meghana eventually fall for each other. The twist in the tale arises when Dev starts having issues with Meghana and her possessive attitude. Rest of the story is as to how Dev and Meghana dealt with their differences and sorts out the differences.
Karthi as Dev
Rakul as Meghana
One of the biggest drawbacks of the film is that the movie has absolutely no story at all.
The director takes an eternity to bring love between the lead pair and the basic conflict is brought only in the pre-climax.
The romance between Dev and Meghana is quite boring and tests your patience.
The pace of the movie is yet another major drawback.
On the whole, ‘Dev’ is an out-and-out disappointing romantic drama which hardly makes any impact. One fails to understand how an actor like Karthi even agreed to this project which lacks the basic soul. The movie can be easily skippable even if you are a hardcore fan of Dev.
