Dev (Karthi) is the son of a rich man Ramalingam (Prakash Raj). The youngster loves adventures a lot and believes that life is not about earning money. He loves to travel all over the world and explore new things.
On the other hand, there is Meghna Padmavathy (Rakul Preet Singh), a multi-millionaire entrepreneur whose only goal in life is to chase money and nothing else.
She hates men since her father ditched her mother Padmavathy (Ramya Krishnan) and left the family when she was a child. Hence, she doesn’t want to fall in love.
Dev’s friends (Vigneshkanth and Amrutha) push him to another adventure- love. They encourage him fall in love with Meghna and the rest is all about whether cupid struck between Dev and Meghna and whether the contrasting characters are able to stay together.
We expected a lot from Dev, since the promos promised an interesting, adrenaline-pumping romantic adventure. But, sorry to say, the end product is a disappointing fare.
There is no proper connectivity between characters and even veterans like Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishnan have been wasted. Rakul too doesn’t have much scope to prove herself.
Karthi is the only one who shoulders all the burden and he delivers a commendable performance. Vigneshkanth’s comedy attempts fail to work out, while Nikki Galrani appears in a forgettable cameo.
The film is technically rich and cinematography is one of the plus points. Harris Jayaraj has failed to make a comeback with Dev. While director Rajath Ravishankar has to improve his narration skills, Karthi should be extra careful before accepting such scripts which might have appeared interesting on paper.
