- Production values
- No Entertainment
Performance: Karthi carries the film entirely on his shoulder. Rakul Preet Singh is ok. In few scenes, Rakul Preet Singh disappoints with unnecessary over-acting. Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishnan perform well. RJ Vigneshkanth and his comedy is annoying. Nikki Galrani’s cameo is ok. Rest of the star cast did not have much to do in the film.
Technical: There is nothing in the storyline. The story of Dev almost has no twists due to which, the film doesn’t engage you beyond a point. The songs, despite being popular and catchy, become speed-breakers after a point. The biggest drawback of Dev is the editing by Ruben. Velraj’ s scintillating grand visuals capturing exotic locales and is a treat to our eyes. The production values are top notch.
Analysis: Is Dev an adventure film? No, there are only couple of trips and an Everest-climbing scene. Is it a romantic film? No, there is no romantic chemistry between Karthi and Rakul Preet Singh. A relationship drama? Kerthi decides to fall in love of Rakul Preet Singh after seeing her pic on Facebook. An action Drama? There are only few stunts. Emotional film? there is no emotion in the film at all. Overall, Dev is way too predictable to ever surprise you!
