Telugu square Rating : 2.5/5
The story begins with Lord Vishnu (Brahmannandam) narraing a story to Lakshmi Devi (Kovai Sarala) about hero and heroine who are orphans . Hero Raviteja’s (Raviteja) occupation is a settlement broker in Hyderabad , Heroine Ileana is a taxi driver in Bangkok .To create love between them,Lord Vishnu makes Papaya (MS Narayana ) to drop a Banana peel on the road and this incident results in Raviteja’s Bangkok trip on a settlement between the between Circle Inspector Subba Raju (Subba Raju) and Bangkok Don Prakash Raj (Prakash Raj) where he meets Ileana . Both fall in love ,but before they come into understanding with each other they gets separated because of quarrel between them .This Banana peel trick fails Now, Lakshmi Devi decides to turn time back and prevent Papayya from throwing the Banana peel on the road tries. How both will come together is the story.
Raviteja looked energitic as usual, not showing any variation in the roles with routine type of comedy from start to end, taking the whole burden on his shoulders. Ileana looked better than Julayi especially in shorts with good performance apt for her role. while Prakash Raj performance as the absent minded Don is good. Jyothi Rana looks sufficiently vampish. . M.S.Narayana is seen in a very brief cameo. Ali brings a few laughs as Bangkok taxi driver Goli, His comedy track as devotee of Lakshmi Devi is superb. Brahmanandham and Kovai Sarla are good in their roles. Subba Raju did well in the little role that is being offered.
Puri’s direction was not up to mark with pauses, dragging scenes; screen play is bad; Dialogues written by Puri are good without any punches. Cinematography is good. Editing is a big minus and it should have been a lot crisper. Raghu Kunche’s background score does not touch the emotions of the film. His music for songs is good though.
Devudu Chesina Manushulu seems to inspired from a Tamil film nothing to offer much from this movie. Director has lost his command on the screen play which is visible through this movie. The first half of the movie is entertaining. The second half is terrible and boring, Initialy Ali-Lakshmi Devi comedy was bit interesting but after few scenes it became boring Thanks…no double meaning dialogues. The silliest twist of the movie is at last Prakash raj and Ileana is shown as brother and sister. Overall Devudu Chesina Manushulu disappoints with weak script.The movie fails to entertain on any level, expect few humorous episodes.
It’s a ok show. Time pass
