Editorial Reviews

Starring: SHAH RUKH KHAN, AISHWARYA RAI, MADHURI DIXIT

Synopsis: Devdas is the story of a love beyond all else, even life. The saga of a man called Devdas who loved, loved and just loved. Devdas shared a magnetic childhood with his lovely playmate Paro where supreme love was felt before it was understood. When youth beckoned, the loved intensified. But, alas, a fateful moment of weakness on the part of Devdas created a permanent wall of separation between him and his beloved Paro. On one side of the wall was a heartbroken Paro who became the wife of another. And on the other, was a completely shattered Devdas. Unable to bear the agony of a life without Paro, Devdas made alcohol his constant companion. But that could not make him forget the piercing pain. Even the unflinching devotion of a beautiful courtesan Chandramukhi, did not ease the heartache of losing Paro. It was only when his eyes closed to a permanent sleep, did the pain begin to fade. But even before losing the light of life, all Devdas urged was to see his Paro just once, thus giving his love the greatest dignity. It was at Paro's doorstep that the doors of heaven opened for Devdas. He left behind a testimony of true love that was pure, chaste, undemanding...and thus immortal. Indeed, love was his life... love makes him live on.

5.0 out of 5 stars A divine reverie of emotion February 3, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
DEVDAS is an exceptional Indian movie you will want to see more than once. The superlative dancing, brilliant acting, luxurious costumes and magnificent scenery all contribute to this film's greatness. If there could be one word that describes this movie, according to its creator Sanjay Leela Bhansali, that word would be `emotion'.
The film is a tone piece, a sustained study of emotions from beginning to end. The male star is Shahrukh Khan - yes, the most famous & loved man on the planet, adored by literally millions. Nicknamed SRK, Shahrukh is the consummate skilled actor whose magic takes you inside his heart.
In the 1950's film `Rebel Without a Cause' James Dean showed us the anti-John Wayne hero who cries openly, displaying feelings of loving tenderness. SRK has this same genius. It is as if both men wear their nerves outside their skin, giving the audience entry to feelings we normally suppress.
From beginning to end, the film `Devdas' is thick with intense emotions. Childhood sweethearts are forced to separate through the usual deadly sin of pride. Devdas, the hero played by Shahrukh Khan, with a single minded determination then proceeds to drink himself to death, drowning his sorrows in alcohol - ever tormented by suffering pain and guilt, the loss of his one true love. Life's one chance of happiness, lost.
As most of you may know, alcoholics are anything but heroic; they are selfish cruel children, hurting any and all who love them. SRK has said that his character is spineless, with a mean streak. Only within the realm of Shahrukh's unique imagination and superior creative talents, does Devdas' stumbling, surrounded by beauty and love, down into degradation and narcissistic death become art.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Bollywood films June 19, 2005
Format:DVD
I must admit that I am a relative newscomer to the great realm of Bollywood, and so I shall refrain from commenting on such intricacies as the dance forms, the faithfulness to the original novel, etc...

What I can comment on, however, is the marvellous nature of this film. Sharukh Khan is excellent as Devdas, with his usual quivering bottom lip and shaking of the head schtick in full force here. He depicts the decline of this character (an anti-hero, with every meaning of the word) in a very dramatic yet believable fashion. Aishwarya Rai is, of course, absolutely gorgeous as the main love interest. The real star, however, is most certainly Madhuri, who in her depiction of Chandramukhi steals the show with little effort from the rest of the cast. Truly winning in her depiction of the courtesan who is blindingly devoted to Devdas (in spite of his, quite frankly, pathetic character) she is heartbreaking, and when she dances with Ms. Rai in the "Redola" dance (I hope I spelt that correctly) she is simply fantastic.

Perhaps not the most typical Bollywood movie out there, and a strange introduction to Bollywood I suppose, but an excellent one nonetheless. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great movie but a piece of junk DVD December 7, 2007
Format:DVD
I highly recommend the movie Devdas for anyone who loves Bollywood or is even just beginning to learn of Indian cinema. The camera work and scenery are dazzling; the songs and dance are fantastic. It has top stars who do not disappoint. That said I cannot recommend this specific DVD. I still wonder if I got some pirated version. The video transfer was terrible as if done by some cheap hack: colors are erratic and the image shifts around. This is particularly true during a couple of dance sequences. It is unacceptable and the sole disappointment I have ever had with an Amazon purchase over the years. Do buy the movie, but not this version....choose one of the DVD's with a different cover. A great movie deserves something better than this DVD publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEVDAS...India's Cleopatra? June 8, 2005
By S. Mann
Format:DVD
DEVDAS - India's Cleopatra July 17, 2002 by Sandi Mann (Australian)

**Quick synopsis: Childhood loves, Parvati (Paro) and Devdas, are reunited when he returns after 10 years abroad studying. Paro has kept a diya burning all that time as a symbol of their love.

Paro's mother suggests the sweethearts marry, but is scornfully rejected by Dev's mother, as Paro's family are of lower caste. Paro's mother is publicly humiliated and vows to marry Paro off within 7 days, to an older man much wealthier than the Mukherjees. Paro goes to Dev's room at 2am to seek a solution, but he vacillates. He writes her a letter saying to forget him and leaves home, shattered by his family's attitude. Paro agrees to marry the older man to respect family honour.

Dev meets up with his college pal, Chunnilal, who introduces him to the gorgeous courtesan, Chandramukhi. (and obviously a very financially successful one - judging by the golden `kotha') Dev realises his mistake and rushes back to Paro, but it's too late. Her wedding is already in progress.

He goes back to Chandramukhi who worships him, but he can't reciprocate, or forget Paro. He drowns himself in alcohol and when it's apparent his life is almost over, he keeps his promise to go and see Paro one more time**

ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH! Don't think because you saw DEVDAS once in cinema, you can make a reasonable judgment of this film. You will need to see it again and again to unfold the many layers, and appreciate each facet and nuance. Don't deprive yourself of that delight!

Some critics have suggested that the lavishness of the visuals distracts from the storyline and other elements...silly people! This just means you have to go back and see it again and again.
