- Regular Story
- Unnecessary forced scenes
- Female actresses
Performance: Nagarjuna and Nani both have given their best performance, which are the main asset of Devadas. Their chemistry (bromance) between them are highlighted. Nagarjuna looks young and energetic. His body language and way of dialogue delivery are top notch. Both Nani and Nagarjuna entertain with perfect comedy timing. Once again Nani steals the show with his innocent look and wonderful performance. Rashmika Mandanna and Akanksha Singh get limited screen space but they justify with their roles. Murali Sharma, comedian Satya and others performed accordingly.
Technical: There is nothing special in the storyline of Devadas but it has executed well. Dialogues are written well. The production values of Vyjayanthi Movies are top notch and the producers did not compromise with the quality of the movie. The director has mixed the elements properly in the film to create interest. The songs go with the flow of the film. The lyrics are good. The editing is just ok. The Cinematography in eye candy and Art direction is good.
Analysis: Overall Devadas is an average action and comedy entertainer. The first half is simple and ordinary but the second half has number of emotional scenes. The plus points are the performance of Nani and Nagarjuna, and their bromance. On the flip-side, the predictable storyline and Unnecessary forced scenes disappoint the audiences. The Movie ends on a comedy note.
