Dev D: For a Mature Audience

Dev D

Now here’s a movie that may unhinge you a bit, make it seem like there’s a soundtrack too many, or seem kind of unlikely. But through the voguish setting and trappings of urban living, Dev D captures human emotion honestly.

Anurag Kashyap’s Devdas (Dev in short) is an arrogant loner, whose life gets out of control when the love of his life gets married to a young widower. Unable to cope with this, he turns to vodka and cocaine living a life that seems to be going nowhere.

Right from the start, Dev D promises to be different from the earlier versions. Not only is Paro a net-savvy and sexually liberated woman, she’s also not one to brood over a past love and quickly moves on. Chandramukhi on the other hand is a student by day and phone-sex kitten by night, while Chunni’s entry couldn’t have been more random as a colorful pimp. There are sexist slurs, shady alleys, sexual politics, and a lot more than meets the eye, and one hour down is all it takes to know that the movie comes across as plain honest.

Amit Trivedi’s music is also notable, the newly immortal Emotional Atyachar leading the way. The performances leave no room for complaints. Standing tall is Mahie Gill, who adds dimension to her role and is absolutely impressive.

As for Anurag Kashyap, his Dev abuses, cries, hurls, and gets downright wasted, and is still so watchable. To take a famous story and remake it takes guts. But to experiment it with an offbeat idea, and still make it so entertaining, that’s glory.

    Open minded adults can surely go for this movie!
    Colors, Actors, Songs, Every thing is just in perfect quantity. The humor here gives a break from the todays idiotic jokes. And Trust me if the media did not utter a word about it being a REMAKE of Devdas one can never guess that it actually was… The best remake by far…
    Both the lead actresses are just too good… and abhay rocks with his real unconventional roles!!!
    All in all A real Great Movie to start the year with 🙂

    Devdas story brilliantly executed in contemprary style. Abhay, Mahi & Kalki have all done full justice to their roles.
    Best form of DEVDAS todate.Must see for today’s youth.

    Very critical & admirable movie which I saw y’day It is like art type with beauitful folklore of Punjab who touched our heart .But Abhay played a role of richest father’s boy (bigadel aulad)very superbly.But it left bad message in mass of metro like mini metros-Indore,Gwl,Bhopal etc as young people takes negative attitude in fast n easy manner,
    thanks
