Movie Info

The film was extensively shot in Bangkok, where Ravi Teja, Illeana and Prakash Raj participated. Producer BVSN Prasad says that DCM will, like the other films in the combination of the director and the hero, belong to that category of films which will be remembered for long. DCM will begin with this message: Watch this film only if you believe that god exists for real. Saying this PJ added that the film is a cent per cent entertainer. The God, who shares a relationship with the principal characters, happens to be Lord Balaji, going by the logo. Prakash Raj is playing an important role here. Brahmanandam, Ali, MS and Kovai Sarala have comedy roles. Subbu Raju has a key role.

Audience Reviews for Devudu Chesina Manushulu

½

Devudu Chesina Manushulu (Telugu) Puri Jagannadh - The name stands as an agent for mediocrity and eccentricity at the same time. The former is related to his view of normal human perceptions but the latter is totally his self. Ravi Teja is probably one of the best energetic heroes in Telugu cinema. The duo has dished out one too many successful films in the past and any new venture is sure to spike up expectations. I'll take a different route on reviewing this movie - it'll be more of a monologue or ranting or both rather than a review. It's been a while since the movie got released and apparently it bit the dust right from the word go. Naturally I had no chance / interest in catching up with the movie at a nearby theater. Eventually, I got a glimpse of it on Roku VOD over the weekend and was shocked about the film getting "bombed". I shared the thought with couple of my closest buddies and they started distancing themselves from me, well, for a limited amount of time. They were pretty sure that I lost it and were on the verge of suggesting me an asylum to get myself cured. Maniacally I had to introspect myself for a goddamn movie and then I thought - Holy Heavens I'll write something about it. Every soul that watched this movie must question itself as to 1. Is there no story? - Damn you we are talking about commercial telugu movies. Why the heck do you need a story? 2. Screenplay was bad? - This film has one of the best screenplay's ever and even the director would've been shocked at the outcome. It's based on a random workless guy and his banana peel - throwing it on the road vs. dumping it in a waste basket. I would say it's utterly commercialized and our own Rashomon. 3. Music was bad? - Pardon my dumb wits but it has it's dose of regular watch once forget it kind of songs. They infact are foot tapping given the lead pair's energetic dances. As telugu people we are not new to any of this. 4. Dialogues were bad? - Knowingly or unknowingly Puri has penned one of the best lines in his career. Add to it Ravi Teja's usual style of diction and highly animated antics - they are more than entertaining. 5. What is ultimately bad then? - Nothing. It's not a great film or an instant blooper in the world of telugu cinema. It's a damn good entertaining film and nobody can answer to it's box office fate. Only let down point for the film is it's climax but given the entertainment ride till that point, you can shove it in to "passable" bucket. All involved parties did their usual job of performing to their permissible limits. There is no mockery relating to god or divine power as one might expect from it's first look. I feel bad for the makers (not that it matters) that it ended up a dud inspite of being a racy commercial entertainer.
