Movie Info

Set in the early 1900s, this film follows a young man named Devdas (Shah Rukh Khan) on his way home to India after having spent the past ten years in London. As the news reaches Devdas and his ex-love Paro's (Aishwarya Rai) respective households, the family matriarchs remember when the young couple were still children. When Devdas' mother found out the two wanted to get married, she refused to give her consent, and in doing so, set off a sequence of events which would lead Devdas into

It does what the movies were meant to do: move, dance and swirl in the popular imagination.

It's all vastly sumptuous, though the spectacle frequently overwhelms the dramatic impact.

Aishwarya Rai's natural beauty anchors the film's three best musical numbers, which balance out the slower and heavier melodramatic parts. All in all, a classy production.

There's more to Devdas than extravagance; the emotion and passion of the story is felt just as strongly in every frame as the budget.

The entire film has an overwhelming hugeness to it that's hard to resist.

When a movie throws as much at you as Devdas does, it's easy to forgive minor disappointments.

Pleasures don't come much guiltier than this.

Opulence rules. So does emotion. Pack a lunch and have an experience because Bollywood beckons.

At over two and a half hours, the film's epic scale may not suit some Western viewers, but those willing to surrender themselves to the drama are in for a real treat.

Audience Reviews for Devdas

"Where will I find again my lost innocence... my lost dreams... my lost childhood? Where has the shade of trees gone, where I made myself a home?" -Devdas

This is like the 3rd or 4th Bollywood movie I've seen. I gotta say it was absolutely spectacular. I'm a sucker for romances and this one delivers in all aspects. I couldn't get enough of it after watching it. I was going to go to sleep but I managed to stay up until 6am and watched it all the way through (3 hours+!!).

A tragic love story is universal.

Spectacular colors, sets, costumes, music... must have cost a fortune to produce. The lovely Aishwarya Rai is absolutely stunningly gorgeous. This is quite possibly one of the most depressing movies I've ever seen... I wanted to give it less stars because it is so tragic and hopeless but you can't deny its power, its message, and its lasting effect.

Really long, and I didn't feel anything for the characters. It is a beautiful film to look at, the colors are vivid.
