The makers of a short film, Four, recently put up a post stating that the content of Devi has been plagiarised from their short film which they created as students. The similarities in the plot include the concept of afterlife, the concept of room filled with rape victims and the end of the film. This post was made by the director and editor of Four, Abhishek Rai.
