Critic Reviews for Devdas
The film is a sensory overload but Devdas' heartache pierces through all the baroque splendor and that is an achievement.
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.
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+!!).
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.
