Devadas Movie Review

Starring :  Nagarjuna, Nani, Rashmika Mandanna, Aakanksha Singh
Director : Sriram Aditya
Producer : C. Ashwini Dutt
Music Director : Mani Sharma

Deva Das is one film which has created a decent buzz for itself in the past few days. After a good round of promotions, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how the film turns s out to be.

Story :

Das(Nani) is a sincere doctor who gets kicked out of a corporate hospital and starts working at a private clinic. On the other hand, Deva(Nagarjuna) is a dreaded don who is on the run. During a gun fight with his enemies, Deva gets hurt and reaches Das’s hospital and gets treated there.

This small meeting between Deva and Das turns into a deep friedship. As time passes by, one crucial incident regarding Deva and his mafia background causes a rift in the friendship. Rest of the story is as to how Das changes Deva into a good man and sets things right.


Nagarjuna is the main highlight of the film. He is perfect fit to play a stylish mafia don and he looked super handsome. He looked like a brother to much younger Nani. Director did well to utilize Nagarjuna's on screen image. Nani as a simpleton is another asset to the movie. His natural performance will make us fall in love with Das's character. Combination scenes between Nag and Nani are the biggest plus for Devadas and they together shoulder the film in spite of a weak script.

Heroines have miniscule roles to play in the story. Even talented Rashmika has been wasted in an underdeveloped role. There are many popular actors playing the supporting roles. Kunal Kapoor is stylish as the mafia don and Satya as Nani's assistant provides good humor in parts. Murali Sharma is apt as police officer. Sharath Kumar played a guest role.

Plus Points:

Entertaining first half

Minus Points:

Uneven screenplay in second half
Pre climax
Lack of catchy songs

Technical Aspects :

Production values by Vyjayanthi Movies are top notch as they have not compromised on the visuals. Camera work is great as it shows the film and star heroes in a superb manner. Music by Mani Sharma is below par as some good hit songs would have helped things even better. Lyrics are good and the whole set up of the film looks cool. Editing is just about okay as atleast ten minutes in the first half could have been chopped off. Nagarjuna has been styled quite nicely in the film.

Coming to the director Sriram Aditya, he had a massive responsibility of handling both the stars and he has done just an okay job. Sriram had plenty of situations where he could have generated hilarious fun but he did not make use of it and showcased the proceedings on just an average note. However, he handled both the star’s roles well individually.

Verdict :

On the whole, Deva Das is a passable multi starrer which becomes watchable only because of Nagarjuna and Nani’s screen presence. Story wise, there is nothing new and the first half is also ordinary. But things change from the second part as the good dose of emotions and decent narration makes things interesting. All you need is to keep your expectations in check and enjoy Nani and Nag’s unique bromance unfold on screen.
