Critic Reviews for Devdas
The story, adapted from a 1917 novel by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhye, seldom rises above melodrama. But the sets and costumes are intoxicating.
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.
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+!!).
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.
