Meet Dev starring Irrfan is a toilet paper salesman. One day he plans to spice up his otherwise boring and mundane life and passionless marriage, by returning home in the evening from his job with roses for his wife. It simply turns out, which his wife is in bed with some other man. This shocking revelation then leads to a number of events which tend to be funny as well as outrageous. So, how it goes is interesting to catch.
The story of the film is inspired by common man who tend to remain the victim of his own situation. He often is seen leading a life of submission, which makes him face a situation of conflict, and then to make things easy he ends up committing a crime of passion. Similar is the story of Dev played by Irrfan. The lead actor has done well in his performance while dealing with a life having things like the loan EMIs, and failing relationships. The makers have tried their best to embark upon several twists that make the film interesting and worth catching up.
Now, talking about the performances, Irrfan Khan is simply awesome while playing the character of Dev, while his wife Kirti Kulhari who indulges into extra marital affair is also seen playing a decent role. In fact, the others too have played a good performance including Arunoday Singh and his wife Divya Dutta. One may find the first half a bit slow but it uses the time to set up different plots seen in the movie. The other elements like direction, humor, fun and drama seen in the film remain perfect adding up the right blend giving a good entertainment.
