After receiving his diploma, Dev returned to Mumbai and started his film career by observing on the set of Abbas-Mustan’s Taarzan: The Wonder Car. He also did an acting course at the Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Academy. His first role as leading actor was in the 2005 film Agnishapath, directed by Prabir Nandi, opposite Rachana Banerjee. The film was a flop. By this point, the film I Love You, directed by Ravi Kinnagi, was in development at Shree Venkatesh Films. Dev met with the producers and landed the male lead role.

Despite the financial success of I Love You, Dev did not take on any other roles for about 14 months. He went to Mumbai, and, dedicated to improving himself, learned dance and trained under fight choreographer Aejaz Gulab (of Shootout at Lokhandwala and Mission Istaanbul).

Dev returned to acting in director Raj Chakraborty's action-romance Challenge, opposite Subhashree Ganguly. The film was a huge hit in West Bengal, giving Dev a considerable popularity boost.

Dev did some item songs like "Pante Tali," from the film Chirodini Tumi Je Amar, the track as well as the video were very successful and he also performed an additional item number in the film Jackpot, directed by Kaushik Ganguly. The song was a remake of "Jibone ki Pabona," a track originally performed by Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee.

In 2010, Dev received the "STAR Ananda Shera notun Protibha Award," from the Bengali news channel of the same name. The same year, he starred in Shedin Dekha Hoyechilo and Dui Prithibi, both remakes of Telugu films. Dui Prithibi was the highest-grossing Bengali film of that year.

In January 2012, Dev starred in Khokababu, the current 2nd highest-grossing Tollywood film, once again opposite Subhashree Ganguly. The film was directed by Shankar Aiyya.
