Product Description

Bollywood romance. Devdas (Shah Rukh Khan) and Paro (Aishwarya Rai) are childhood sweethearts whose love is doomed from the beginning because Devdas is the son of a wealthy aristocrat while Paro's family is way down in the social scale. Devdas' father sends him abroad to study, hoping that the separation will be permanent. When he returns, Paro's mother (Kiron Kher) proposes that she and Devdas be united in marriage but is humiliated by Devdas' father. In despair, Paro offers to give herself, body and soul, to her lover, but he rejects her. Paro marries someone else and when Devdas realises what he has lost, he seeks refuge in alcohol and the arms of a prostitute, Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit).

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devdas 17 Mar 2003
By Suzanne
Format:DVD
I'm not a big fan of Bollywood, I don't even understand Hindi, but I was inspired to watch the film by the trailers on television and the reviews given by various magazines. Watching the film was not a problem as it had English subtitles. So, what did I think...?
The film, in short, was utterly breathtaking.
The sets were so lavish and colourful that every scene was like a gift to the eye, the music was so soulful that every emotion felt by the audience was inevitably emphasized to perpetuity, the dialogue was emotive and masterful and the performance of Sharuh Khan and Aishwarya Rai were so utterly natural that one felt like a spectator on a real-life love story with a shattering conclusion. I laughed, I cried but most of all I was gripped in awe at this epic film. There are few films I can claim I shall never forget but this is definitely one of the few.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERYYYY POWERFUL MOVIE! 14 July 2007
By P.R
Format:DVD
This movie is AMAZING! my favourite bollywood movie of all time. I absolutely fell in love with Shah Rukh Khan after watching this movie, his acting is superb! The story of this movie touches your heart and is a defiant tear jerker. Madhuri's acting was brilliant and is a pleasant suprise to also have her in this movie. I must also admit, that this is the only movie where Ashwariya Rai hasnt annoyed me. Overall this movie is amazing! Even if you are not a huge Bollywood fan, i would still recommend watching this movie...it will make you fall in love with Bollywood! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful remake of Hindi classic, Devdas 16 Jan 2004
By Rohun
Format:DVD
Devdas is a timeless classic remade for a modern audience with a very large budget. It tells the story of Devdas and his eternal love for Paro, but how the society of their time would not permit their union and so Paro leaves Devdas for more appropriate suitor. Their love however can never be forgotten and the film shows their undying devotion to one another. Perhaps could be described as the Indian equivalent of Romeo and Juliet; was also originally a novel. Would appeal to a very wide audience, Indian and in the West.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marathon tear jerker 29 May 2007
Format:DVD
This film was an Oscar nominee and for a Bollywood film to be taken this seriously, or to reach such a wide audience, is rare. One thing to bear in mind is its length. It seems to go on for an hour longer than was vital, but that extra hour only appears to sweep you further away in Devdas' plight. I admit I am no expert on acting delivery, or directing style, but little under 20 minutes in I had forgotten I was watching a foreign language film, or reading subtitles, and was just swept away with the humanity of the story. Definately a film for a Saturday afternoon, accompanied by a large box of choccies and an even bigger box of tissues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most powerful film I have ever seen 21 Aug 2006
By Robert
Format:DVD
This film is incredibly beautiful, as well as being superbly acted. Wonderful music and dances too. It was the most emotional experience I have ever had watching a film. It has been loosely described as the Indian version of Romeo and Juliet and I can see why, because it is a tragic love story. If you are not afraid to be profoundly moved and want a very powerful experience, see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars More traditional feel but incredible impact 23 Dec 2008
By Lyn
Format:DVD
This movie played havoc with my emotions. It is just heart wrenching at times and SRK is beyond exceptional. Ash is very good too (a little too good at playing the immature earlier version of her figure as she was irritating at that point but she grows the character up and really brings the emotion out). It is more traditional in its dances but is beautiful to look at and very poetic. It demands more of the viewer but definitely worth the journey unless you prefer light and frothy -which it isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant...! 2 Dec 2002
By Ollie
Format:DVD
Many lovers of the original 'Devdas' will probabaly disagree with me when I say that this reworking of the classic (but tragic)love story is a wonder for the eyes to behold...
It truly is a sight to be seen - from the sumptuous and colourful decor and sets, to the heartfelt acting skills of the lead roles. You can almost smell the kum kum being thrown around in the first dance sequence - and what a glorious way to introduce Paro, the love and life of Devdas (Shahrukh Khan), played exquisitely by Aishwarya Rai.
Although I always feel that a Bollywood film should be seen in the cinema (to get that overwhelming feel of loosing oneself in the film!), 'Devdas' is such a delight that little is lost in the transfer from cinema screen to DVD - it even comes with subtitles for those who don't speak Hindi/Urdu.
As for the musical score... another work of genius - a must have for any CD player worth it's salt! Go and order it now!
All in all, this is an intoxicating and infectious love story that will have you laughing and crying (sometimes at the same time!) - the ending is so unlike all the other Bollywood films, that you will never forget it.
Please please please see this film...!

5.0 out of 5 stars DEVDAS 21 Aug 2003
By SM
Format:DVD
This is undoubtedly one of the finest hindi films of all time. The production quality and attention to detail make DEVDAS the benchmark for all future costume dramas. As for the acting, rarely has anyone seen Shahrukh Khan perform so effortlessly, he mesmerises right from the first scene.To anyone who loves hindi cinema, who appreciates the culture and has read Chattopadhay's novel, you owe it to yourself to watch it and then watch it again. As the trailer says "there will never be another DEVDAS like this".
