The Review of

Director Sanjay leela Bhansali
Cast Shahrukh Khan,Aishwarya Rai & Madhuri Dixit

Ever since this tragic story of Devdas has hit the silver screen since the black and white era, it has left behind many memorable performances by Dilip Kumar, Sehgal. Even in Telugu Nageshwar Rao and Krishna have lent memorable performance to this role.

In 2002 comes the latest, the costliest and the most eagerly awaited version of Devdas by Sanjay Leela Bhansali who has cast the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit. The hype has been so much that at Sangeet Theatre the tickets have been sold out for the entire first week. Well for this generation there is lot of curiosity factor and that has probably prompted the producers of this movie to go in for the maximum number of prints for the initial screening.

The story of the movie is the same old one except that it has been set on a very lavish scale. The first half of the movie is quite tedious giving unnecessary lengths to each characterization instead of building up a story. Nevertheless the second half picks up with some fine tunes and towards the end the film picks up pace and the climax has been filmed to perfection.

Aishwarya Rai as 'Paro' continues from where she has left behind in 'Hum Dil De Chuke Hai Sanam' and has delivered a marvelous performance. Shah Rukh Khan is remarkable towards the end.

The costumes of the film is catching on like wild fever in the fashion world. The women folk are indeed going ga ga over the movie.  Overall the movie is doing great business all over India. There has reports that the first week collections have grossed over 50 crores all over. The story continues...
