‘Devi 2’ movie review: An unnecessary sequel but comparing to 'Kanchana 3' it was great.Modified On: 31 May 2019 | Reviewed By: Saurabh S Nair
Devi 2 is bearable for its comedy sequence and it’s not too loud like the recent outing Raghava Lawrence’s Kanchana 3.
During the second half, the character of Kovai Sarla’s lawyer says to the other character that, “Don’t ask logical questions. Just enjoy the magic.” If you too go with this mantra you might bare this 2-hour long film.
The film itself is like Raghava Lawrence spirit entering into director Vijay’s body.
The film is too loud, the lead female character is merely a prop and it has some vulgar songs which are the same as Lawrence’s movie. Director Vijay is known for his subtlety and unique way of narrating the film which lacks in this movie.
Devi 2 is centered on Krishna (Prabhudeva), who is possessed by two spirits while his wife Devi (Tamannaah) tries to deal with the situation with the help of a friend (Kovai Sarala). In order to save her husband, Devi signs an agreement with the spirits and, in return, is assured of Krishna’s well-being and services.
In the first part, Tamannaah gets possessed by the spirit of a failed actress called Ruby. Devi 2 is set in Mauritius because Krishna is told by a god-man that if he finds a place that’s surrounded by water from all sides, no spirits can bother him or his wife.
The idea of a soul with unfulfilled wish taking over a new identity to live her dream was well presented in Devi and so it worked. By flipping the idea on its head and using it on Krishna and expecting the same result is silly and that’s one of the primary reasons why Devi 2 becomes merely a onetime watch.
Tamannah has given an earnest performance but her character is written with an intention to just to be glamorous. Prabhudeva has showcased his versatility, his comic timing is par excellence.
On this weekend, if you have no work and just want to beat the time then you can go for this movie.
