Director-cum-producer Sai Prakash, who has earlier done tearjerker movies like Anna Thangi, Thvarina Siri and Thavarige Baa Thangi, has once again come up with same brother-sister sentiment in Devaru Kotta Thangi. He has done nothing but re-established his cliched scenes, dialogues and situations.
The director seems to have understood the taste of the audience, but not completely. So he has just brought two new updates in his movie Devaru Kotta Thangi. The first thing is the use of graphics especially in the flood scene, which is wonderful. The second is the use of comedy element. There are new scenes that Saiprakash has taken from O Henry’s short story 'The Gift of the Magi' and the fable 'The Little Dutch Boy'.
Earlier, Sai Prakash had said in an interview that he was inspired by 1970’s Kannada classic Bhootayyana Maga Ayyu to do the move Devaru Kotta Thangi, but it is nowhere close to the classic. The first half of the film appears like a documentary on the Indian festivals like Nagara Panchami, Bheemana Amavasye and Ugadi.
