I cannot stop telling everyone how much I LOVE this movie. I have been watching Hindi movies since I was born basically, and Devdas has to be my favorite movie EVER. Shah Rukh Khan plays Devdas(Deva), the son of a wealthy landowner in 1930's India. Paro, played deflty and amazingly by the ever beautiful Aishwarya Rai is his neighbor of slightly lower caste. The story revolves around the tragic love of these two characters and the love of Chandramukhi (played by Madhuri Dixit), whom Devdas inadvertently meets while trying to drown out his sorrow over losing Paro. EVERYBODY, Indian or not, MUST see this film. The acting is incredible, the sets and costumes beyond breathtaking, the background score simply perfect, the musical numbers placed appropriatley to mesh completely with the film, and the direction flawless. Even the opening credits will take your breath away. Whatever you do, you cannot miss this film. Trust me.
