ABCD Shantakumar, who's directed the film still has a long way to go. Devdas is a shoddy attempt backed by a hackneyed story. The film just caters to the dancer in Yogish. What harms the film more is the lackluster performance by Yogi. The actor who simply outdid his co-stars in Hudugaru that released recently, fails to register this time. His expressions are bland and he's low on energy. His leading ladies are damp squibs too. Paro especially comes across as lifeless. Rangayana Raghu is not his usual best either.
Camerawork does nothing to help the film. Joshua Shridhar has done better when it comes to music. The only highlight of the film is the song Saarayi shisheyali
It is actually from an old film Mangalya Sakshi and has been used here again to suit a situation. So if you are a fan of the song, watch it on music channels.
This Devdas will cry his way out of theatres very soon. Give the film a miss.
