Devadas is a true multi-starrer in Telugu cinema in recent times. Nagarjuna and Nani joined hands for this project directed by Sriram Aditya whose first two films are given thumbs up. Producer Ashwini Dutt who scored a hit with last flick Mahanati is back into the game. Will this crazy combination create sensations? Let’s discuss in actual review part.
