Dev: Challenge Won!


Dev is one of the many new heroes of Bangla Cinema who have made their presence felt in a host of new-age movies that have been reaching out to the viewers in Kolkata as well as in suburban West Bengal.

Dev is now hot property in Bangla Cinema thanks to his hugely successful mainstream film called 'Challenge'!

Dev's real name is Deepak Adhikari. Born on 25th Dec, 1982, Dev is a typical Capri. He is no doubt blessed with good looks, romantic appeal and an affable nature.

The plus point that is nothing but Dev's USP is his physique, he maintains it well, and hits the gym to tone up aptly for his hunky screen appearance. For his female fans, he also has the perfectly disarming smile to enchant them!

Dev's family hails from Midnapore, but they had shifted to Mumbai many years back. Born at Bandra, Mumbai, Dev did his schooling from Purushottam High School, Bandra and he earned his diploma in Computer Engineering from Bhartiya Vidyapith, Pune. After finishing studies, he returned to Mumbai and started out as an observer on the sets of Abbas-Mustan’s Taarzan: The Wonder Car. He also did an acting course at the Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Academy. His first break was in the revenge-saga called 'Agnisapath' which was not successful at the box office, but his 6-feet-plus height & physical agility got him noticed. In 2007, he got his big hit in 'I Love You', directed by Ravi Kinnagi. Venkatesh Films backed him & promoted him in a big way indeed! A year later he was again cast in a romantic musical called 'Premer Kahini'. In 2008, he also starred with Koel Mullick in 'Mon Maane Na', directed by Sujit Guha. Further, he was seen in two hot item numbers "Pant-e taali" & "Jibone ki paabona" in 'Chirodini Tumi Je Aamaar'(2008) and 'Jackpot'(2009) respectively. A terrific dancer, and a promising new-comer with all the ingredients of a superstar, Dev has arrived big time with 'Challenge' - a romantic-actioner by Raj Chakraborty - that has the tag line "Nibi na saala? [Won't you accept the challenge?]"..... well, Dev has won the challenge, by a huge margin, it seems!

Whether Dev will stand the test of time or not, only time will say....
but at least for now he has definitely won the challenge my friend, what with ending the supremacy of Jeet as the mainstream superhero in Bengal, post-Bumba i.e. Prosenjit!

Had looks been the only clincher, Dev sure has it in him to be the superstar!

As Dev danced with the bevy of Russian girls in 'Challenge', it became the defining moment for Bangla cinema's turnaround, even in these slumpy times and amidst the endless shadow boxing bouts between multiplexes & Bollywood producers!
Paradoxically, the hit song in question("Bhajo gourango"), featuring Dev & the glam-dolls, has also attracted a huge controversy as to whether it amounts to debasing the Hindu (Vaishnavite) religion - all that brings in its wake even unwanted attention to Dev's smooth dance moves! He is definitely a rage now!

The guy surely does know how to shake a leg, but what he really has in his favor is the huge hit 'I Love You' and the mammoth record-breaker called 'Challenge'. Hope that gives him a firm footing the Benglai film industry.

Dev has all the qualities it takes to be a 'hero' in Tollywood. After quite a long time Bengali film industry has found a hero who is handsome, well built, can act properly, dances well, fights well... all at the same time! But I feel Dev needs to work on his dialogue delivery. His Bengali is still accented. The sooner he gets rid of it, the better for him.

Dev has all the qualities to become a superhero in our Tinseltown! But, I think his most outstanding feature is he looks like our next-door guy!

Whatever, now it's well known to all that he has won the Challenge already! & now we all keep our fingers crossed for his Political success!!~
