When we see the first looks of some movies and learn about the stories from the makers. it sometimes seems like a few films happening at the same time have a similar story. Right now, it looks like two upcoming movies, Jr NTR’s “Devara” and Naga Chaitanya’s “Thandel,” both revolve around the life of a fisherman and events in a fishing village.
In both films, the main characters travel by sea on their ships and engage in some world-saving actions. The storyline also seems quite similar with the hero dedicating his life to saving his crew and village. It appears that both “Devara” and “Thandel” storylines will share many similarities.
However, the main difference seems to be the time period in which the stories take place. “Devara” has a vintage feel, while “Thandel” is a bit more modern compared to Jr NTR’s film. Even though sources from both movies claim that the storylines and timelines don’t match, and only the backdrop is the same, many people still think that both heroes might be doing similar films.
“Thandel” is directed by Chandoo Mondeti, while “Devara” is helmed by senior director Koratala Siva.
