What are the incidents? Who is Deva? What are the situations faced by them? What happens in the end? forms the rest story.
The film got a good bromance between Nagarjuna and Nani. Both did excellent performances in their roles. Nani with his timing and modulations did a splendid job as Das and Nagarjuna with his screen presence and acting did an awesome job. Both heroines did splendid job Rashmika Mandanna as usual stolen the heart with her expressions and cuteness. Akanksha Singh is also good in her role and has done a decent performance in her role. Other actors Murali Sharma, Vennela Kishore, and others did a good job in their roles.
The production values of the film are superb and the Vyjayanthi movies once again proved it. The camera work of the film done by Shamdat is superb and he made the lead pairs look stylish in the film. Music done by Mani Sharma is not up to the mark and songs are just okay and background scores are good. Editing of the film is okay and could have been better. Costumes and styles of Nagarjuna are good in the film. Coming to the direction Sriram Aditya did just an average job and there is scope to generate more fun with the chemistry of Nani and Nagarjuna in the film.
- Fun elements
- Few Emotional scenes
- Weak plot
- bit slow Second half
On a whole, Devadas is just an average entertainer with ample dose of comedy and emotions. The main highlight of the film is the bromance between Nagarjuna and Nani. The film takes off on a decent note and entertaining in the first half. In the second half, the film becomes a bit dull in the proceedings. Director Sriram Aditya did just an okay job and could have done better generating more fun using Nagarjuna and Nani. Editing could have been crisper by chopping 10 minutes of the film in the first half. Overall, Devadas is a watchable film especially for the chemistry between Nagarjuna and Nani. Without much expectations, one can have a decent watch.
Bottom Line: Watch it for Deva and Das.
