#devadas #nani #nagarjuna

#Sriram Adittya’s Devadas, starring #Nagarjuna and Nani, is the kind of film which is so conscious about what it wants to say that it sacrifices drama throughout its journey. This means that, despite ample number of slo-mo shots, nothing is too exaggerated or dramatic enough to let you feel an emotional high, and except for the two lead actors, there’s very little left for others to give a new direction to the story. Maybe that’s the whole point of film because its director and galaxy of writers are so much in love with two characters — Deva and Das. At the same time, it’s fun as long as it focuses all its attention on Nani and Nagarjuna, whose sparkling bromance is the sole reason why the film works to a good extent.

Story

The film revolves around Deva (Nagarjuna), a mafia don who comes back to Hyderabad after 10 long years. A lot has changed in the years of his absence and there’s a threat from a new businessman, David (Kunal Kapoor), who wants to grab control of the mafia. One fine day, Deva ends up meeting Das (Nani), a doctor, under unusual circumstances. And soon, their lives intertwine in more ways than what they could have imagined, which eventually leads both of them to change their approach to life.

Review

It’s a simple story where a kind-hearted Das wants to see Deva mend his ways and become a better person. The duo strike a great rapport instantly, and Das finds an unlikely friend in Deva and vice-versa. What does come as a big surprise to Deva is how innocent and kind Das truly is, and he goes out of his way to help him out in his professional career. There’s a hilarious scene quite early in the film where Das’ clinic becomes a go-to place for all gangsters in the city, and in another instance, when Das sets up a date for Deva with Jahnavi (Aakanksha Singh), Deva finds himself on a tricky ground where he has to impress the girl by hook o
