Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, known for his penchant for unique scripts, ventures into uncharted territory with the period action drama "Devil," directed and produced by Abhishek Nama. Let's delve into the review to see how this action-packed tale unfolds.


The storyline unfolds in Rasapadu, where a Zamindar's daughter, Vijaya, meets a mysterious demise. The British government assigns Agent Devil (Kalyan Ram) to unravel the intricacies of the murder mystery. As Devil delves into the investigation, shocking revelations come to light. Soon, he finds himself embroiled in a new mission titled "Operation Tiger Hunt." What is the mission about? Did the Devil chase the mystery? What challenges did he face? Forms the rest of the film's story.


Kalyan Ram's powerful dialogue delivers a layer of magic to the film, leaving a lasting impact. The actor adeptly showcases the characters' variations, transitioning from subtlety to ferocity as the story unfolds. His performance is working out well. Samyukta Menon delivers a noteworthy performance, breaking free from the stereotypical romantic interest role, while Vassishta Simha impresses and Malvika Nair holds her own. The rest of the cast made their presence felt.

Technical Aspects:

While the background score by Harshavardhan Rameshwar is decent, the songs fail to make a mark. Soundar Rajan's cinematography adds visual flair, complementing the stunning artwork that enriches the film's historical ambiance. Srikanth Vissa's impactful dialogues and well-crafted story are the movie's strengths, compensating for some lapses in execution. The production values and VFX work are commendable, creating a convincing period setting.


"Devil" boasts an engaging story with robust subplots, compelling characters, and intricate layers. The murder mystery cleverly intertwines with patriotic elements, enhancing the depth of the narrative. The second half introduces a series of well-executed twists seamlessly integrated into the plot without appearing forced. The narration in the first hour lacks the gripping intensity expected from a period-action drama. "Devil" emerges as a watchable period action drama with a compelling storyline and thrilling twists. If you can overlook these flaws, "Devil" offers an engaging cinematic experience.
