Karthi’s long-awaited travelogue film Dev is finally set to hit the screens worldwide, as the makers have now cleared all the hurdles in its business streak. The film, which was initially planned as a December 21 release got pushed to January but will still not make it due to the current releases in Petta and Viswasam doing extremely well. Prince Pictures, the producers of the film, are now vying to bring it to the screens for the Valentine’s Day weekend.
Dev will be Karthi’s first release since the highly successful Kadaikutty Singam which came out last year. After a rural blockbuster which ran to more than 75 crores at the box office, Dev will be a stylish and upmarket film for the actor where he will return to his chocolate boy days. Here, he pairs up with Rakul Preet for the second time in his career after Theeran: Adhigaram Ondru.
Being the debut outing for director Rajath Ravishankar, it would be interesting to see whether such a film could fit into the likings of the Tamil audience. Harris Jayaraj’s music for Dev has already hit the right note, with the songs being regulars on FM stations all around. The team is now planning to hold a pre-release event to launch the trailer of the film.
