Hyderabad, Sept 27: Yes, it is an interesting clash of multi-starrers today. Telugu multi-starrer Devadas featuring Nagarjuna and Nani as the leads is clashing with Tamil multi-starrer Nawaab directed by legendary Mani Ratnam.
Being the straight film, Devadas obviously has more haul and mileage compared to dubbed film 'Nawaab'. Unlike regular multi-starrers 'DevaDas' is a fun film that highlights the male bonding relationship between Nagarjuna and Nani.
However, Senior actor Nagarjuna is playing the role of an international mafia don who is not violent but fun loving. Nani plays a simple doctor who runs into a mafia don and struggles to get back to his regular life.
The film 'Devadas' is produced by veteran producer Ashwini Dutt who has recently smacked success with the film Mahanati.
It is directed by young and talented director Sriram Aditya. And the music scored by Manisharma is decent. A couple of songs from the album are slowly climbing the charts.
Nawaab is a serious drama where brothers are at war for owning their father’s mafia kingdom. Aravind Swamy, Simbu, Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika, Prakash Raj, Aditi Rao are among the principal star cast.
The trailers look promising and show glimpses of vintage Mani Ratnam. Stay tuned for our verdict on these films.
