Editorial Reviews

The son of Zamindar Narayan Mukherjee, Devdas was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He grew up in the lush village of Taj Sonapur, where he spent his childhood with his playmate Paro. They grew up sharing a special relationship. Oblivious of all the differences of status and background, a bond that would never break grew between them. Soon, Devdas is sent to London for his education. Years later Devdas returns. Devdas besotted by Paro s stunning beauty longs to marry her. But Devdas father meets Paro s mother with condescending arrogance. It causes a rift between the families and even though Devdas tries to convince his father, his father doesn t relent. Paro then enters into a chaste marriage with a wealthy, much older man, Zamindar Bhuvan, while a shattered Devdas walks towards anguish, alcoholism and Chandramukhi, a stunning courtesan, who passionately loves him. Meanwhile, Paro, on the other hand, performs her worldly duties sincerely, but inside her, she could never forget Devdas. Strange was the fate of Devdas. Intensely loved by two women, who were never meant to be his. One whom he could never love and one whom he could never stop loving.

Picture quality is not good at all.

I love Indian movies but they more often than not make me feel like I'm watching something straight out of the 80s.

I am a fan of Bollywood movies to begin with; I love the music, the costumes, the dance scenes and the stories.

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.

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.

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.

"Devdas" is the Indian equivelant of "Romeo and Juliet.," and this, the latest filmed version fo the story, succeeds masterfully on so many levels in telling it to the audience of today. For starters, on a cinematographic level, it is stunning. "Devdas" is the most expensive Bollywood musical of all time, and it definitely shows. The colors are vivid, alive and really pop of off the screen. You feel like you have been transported to time and place that the characters are living in. The dancing is mesmerizing and the actors are engaging, believeable, and it doesn't hurt that they are pretty easy on the eyes.

Devdas (Shah Rukh Khan) is a young man who comes from an affluent family of landlords and grows up with the beautiful Paro (Aishwarya Rai) as playmate and childhood sweetheart. Though, Paro comes from less money and her mother is a marriage broker, their love is blind to the material differences that eventually separate them for some twelve years, when Devdas is sent away to receive an education in London and is reprimanded by his father for having anything to do with the girl. Though, their relationship is never to be, Paro literally keeps the flame burning for him, all of those years (we see her candle that has never burnt out) and continues to burn as life and circumstance separate them from being husband and wife.

Though, the over three hour duration of this film may detract some from viewing it, do not let that discourage you. The engaging story, luscious dance numbers, beautiful music and equally beautiful people will definitely hold your attention. However, I reccomend that you not see this when you are depressed. It is ultimately very tragic. Do watch it with someone you love, along with a box of tissues on your lap. It is worth the time!!!
