You can expect a film from director Vijay almost every two months. Close on the heels of ‘Watchman’, which had G V Prakash Kumar in the lead, his ‘Devi 2’ has hit the screens now.
The film, as the name suggests, is a sequel to his earlier hit ‘Devi’. Like the first part, the second part too features Prabhu Deva and Tamannah in the lead roles.
Krishna (Prabhu Deva) is married to Devi (Tamannah). The former is possessed by not just one, but two spirits. And the latter comes to know about it.
Devi takes multiple steps to save her husband and to safeguard her family. She also takes the help of a friend (Kovai Sarala).
The rest is all about how Devi resorts to different methods to achieve her mission and whether she is successful in it or not.
Though the director, hero and heroine are from the first part, the sequel has not repeated the interest and imagination of ‘Devi’. Average and poor writing has taken the sheen away.
Prabhu Deva and Tamannah have performed well, while Kovai Sarala has repeated her popular act. R J Balaji and Sonu Sood appear in brief roles.
There is neither much horror nor good comedy in Devi 2, which is enjoyable only in parts
