After the blockbuster success of Kadai Kutty Singam, Karthi will be back on the big screen with Dev which is set to release on Feb 14th, in Tamil as well as Telugu. While it will be his first film with composer Harris Jayaraj, Dev will mark his 4th outing with cinematographer Velraj. Karthi considers Velraj as his lucky charm as all of his three prior films with Velraj - Siruthai, Komban and Kadai Kutty Singam, have been hugely successful ventures. They will be looking to notch their fourth success together when Dev releases.
Dev has been shot all over the world and it has apparently been a great learning experience for Velraj to have handled such diverse geography and adventure sequences in one film. The Dev team is meanwhile being quite aggressive in their promotions. Going the Bollywood way, they have already released the full song videos of ‘Aanange’ and ‘Dey Machan Dev’ - two peppy song sequences shot abroad in exotic locations with Karthi, Rakul and the other actors.
The producers, Prince Pictures, have not spared any expense despite the fact that it’s a debut director’s film. Dev looks like one catered to the urban audience in stark contrast to KKS, which won tremendous acceptance in the rural mass belts of TN.
