Kalyan Ram Devil: Reports suggest that Nikhil Siddharth‘s ‘Spy’ and Nandamuri Kalyan Ram’s ‘Devil’ share a lot in common, both delving into the theme of spies and exploring the mystery surrounding Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
In ‘Spy,’ Nikhil Siddharth portrays a spy tasked with locating a lost file related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, triggering heightened vigilance from the Indian RAW and Intelligence Team.
Contrastingly, ‘Devil,’ starring Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, revolves around the enigmatic death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
While ‘Spy’ received criticism for its failure to make the Subhash Chandra Bose connection compelling, with the story adhering to typical spy story twists, ‘Devil’ has maintained secrecy around this aspect in its promotional material.
In an exclusive interview with M9, Kalyan Ram was asked why the Subhash Chandra Bose angle wasn’t revealed in the trailer. Rather than providing a direct answer, he encouraged audiences to watch the film to discover the reason behind the secrecy. Kalyan Ram emphasized the intention to avoid building unrealistic expectations, with the concealed detail meant to serve as a pleasant surprise for viewers.
The intrigue surrounding Bose’s mysterious death in ‘Devil,’ a relatively unexplored theme in Tollywood, remains to be seen in terms of audience response. However, one notable distinction is evident: Kalyan Ram is cautious about setting wrong expectations, a departure from the approach taken by Nikhil.
