Dev (Karthi) loves adventures and he prefers to capture them. The film starts off near Mount Everest while Dev injures himself in an avalanche. Dev , Vicky and Nisha are childhood friends and they reside in Ukraine. Dev meets Meghna (Rakul Preet) in India who is a young entrepreneur from San Francisco. Soon Meghna falls in love with Dev. The rest of the film is all about their struggles and how Dev, Meghna end up winning their love. Watch Dev to know about the entire story.
The first half of Dev has nothing much interesting except the narrated characterizations of Karthi and Rakul Preet Singh. Some of the episodes are narrated in a hurry and the entertainment is completely outdated. Except the beautiful locales and the grand production values, the first half of Dev offers nothing new and exciting. Some of the episodes are dragged enough that the film looks lengthy. On the whole, the first half of Dev looks below average.
The second half of the film too takes on the same pace. Though the film starts on an interesting note, the snail paced narration and the unwanted stuff makes the film fall flat. The break up episodes and post breakup scenes lack the needed emotions. The climax looks simple and predictable. On the whole, Dev ends up as one of the biggest disasters in Karthi's career.
Karthi delivers a stunning performance and his transformation is clearly visible on screen. He looks manly, lean as an adventurous guy in the film. Rakul Preet Singh stuns in a new role and lean look throughout. She surprises the audience as a young business woman who falls in love with an adventurous youngster in the film. Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishna has interesting roles assigned and they will be loved by everyone. All the other actors have been ok.
Dev has nothing interesting about the plot and the screenplay, narration. Lavish amounts have been spent on the film that lacks interesting and engaging stuff. The cinematography work is outstanding and it makes the film a treat to watch despite of a soulless narration. The music and the editing work has been just ok. Debutant Rajath Ravi fails in all the available ways in making Dev an impressive film.
Dev Final Word
Karthi and his team fails badly in coming up with an impressive entertainer. The film falls flat because of the flat narration and the poor execution.
