The trailer of Karthi’s next release Dev, was launched on Thursday evening by the actor’s brother Suriya. The trailer catches the eye for its impressive visual scale and the strong characterizations of the hero and heroine. Karthi is positioned as a fun, adventure loving person while Rakul Preet comes across as a strong, career oriented, independent woman. The two of them fall in love, and that obviously is the major part of the film. Dev has been shot in many exotic locations across the globe and has Harris Jayaraj’s music. The song ‘Aanange’ that is featured in the trailer interestingly has a different tune (very soft and melodic) compared to the bouncy, peppy version that was released in the album.
The trailer also puts out many extravagant action sequences. There obviously is a conflict that arises due to the romance between the lead pair. Upcoming comedian Vigneshkanth is the trademark ‘hero friend’ here while it is refreshing to see the pretty Amrutha Srinivasan (who is very popular in the Tamil web series space) also mark her presence in the film as one of Karthi’s friends. Regulars like Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishnan are also cast in the film.
Dev is set to release in both Tamil and Telugu on February 14th. The film is helmed by debutant Rajath Ravishankar and is produced by Prince Pictures and Reliance Entertainment.
