Devaraya Movie Review

Written By Unknown on Friday, 7 December 2012 | 08:00

RATING: 1.75/5

Dorababu (Srikanth) is a spoilt rich kid in an East Godavari village. Dorababu and his friends spend their time gambling, drinking or helping Dorababu with his flirtations. The friends are the usual set of village vagabond clichés with a few senior artists, not like they can get all seniors, like in a Star’s film; the budgets are ruining these epics.
Swapna (played by Vidisha), a city girl who came home for the holidays falls on Dorababu’s radar, but, for the first time he realizes the motherly nature (ammathanam) of a woman when with her, which somehow is a hint at him loving her. They end up at a temple in ruins by interval time and the film with its shameless Magadheera imitation moves to the story of Sri Krishna Devarraya and the dancer he loved (Sunanda played by Meenakshi Dikshit).
Now, Dorababu isn’t just a rich brat, he is the body the soul of Devarraya chose to enter so that he can finish something that will silence the Aghoras in the Godavari district.

Technicalities in Devaraya Movie:
Nani Krishna’s direction is poor and he does not have any grasp over the basic aspects of narration and screenplay. Editing is atrocious. Cinematography is just about ok. Veerababu’s dialogues are bad.
Like I said before, Chakri’s music is very bad and he does not lend any strength to the movie. Production values are mediocre.
Positives in Devaraya Movie:
  • Srikanth Dialogues
  • Srikanth Getups
  • Good Comedy
  • Meenakshi Dixit and Vidisha glamour show
Negatives Elements  in Devaraya Movie:
The plot of this movie has more holes than a sponge and just like a sponge soaks up water, this film will soak up the viewer’s patience. There is virtually no story in the first half and there are way too many bad songs.
The scenes are loud, poorly written and have absolutely no logic. If you had a great image of King Sri Krishna Devaraya, you will be disappointed with the way he has been portrayed in this movie.
There are too many foolish sequences in the film. In the flashback episodes, King Krishna Devaraya’s character keeps shifting between present day Telugu and ancient Telugu in the same dialogue!! The actor who is seen as Jayaprakash Reddy’s brother looks very comical with a hideous wig. The central plot of trying to build a cement factory in a place containing an ancient temple is never given its due importance.
The placement of songs is atrocious. Just when the film tries to gain some momentum, these songs appear and drive the pace right into the ground.
Some graphics sequences are very poorly executed and while that is understandable, given the low budget of the film, they should not have been attempted in the first place with such limitations.
Chakri’s music and background score make things worse. The climax simply falls flat and there is no reason for that Chandramukhi style dance (with the Chandramukhi costume) in the first place.
Final word about Devaraya Movie:
Srikanth is a nice guy with a family hero image and it is sad to see him in films like this. ‘Devaraya’ is a movie that has absolutely nothing going for it. Do yourself a favour and stay away from it unless you want to watch the movie out of an academic interest to see what shouldn’t be done by a director.
Box Office Aspect in Devaraya Movie:
With OK OK comedy, Devaraya is expected to do good business at boxoffice for this weekend. lets wait and see how audience receive it..
