This week had been quite wearisome for me as I had to face non-emotional kind of "Atayachar" by waking up at 6:30 AM. But let’s leave a common man’s story and discuss about the film. I and my roomies democratically decided to take subtle enjoyment by watching the movie "DEVD" which is termed as the modern version of the novel “Devdas”.
Unlike the earlier Devdas this DEVD is conceited, selfish and confused person who is smitten with a bold village girl PARO.Abhay Deol looks quite instinctive in this role. The character PARO is played by a new actor and looks awesome clad in typical Punjabi dress. The first half of the movie is riveting even though the directory has the same story to tell where in PARO is married to another person. The song “Tauba Tera Jalwa, Tauba Tera Pyaar” is filmed brilliantly and reminds of the typical North Indian marriage.
In the second half of the movie, the protagonist DEVD lives in reclusion, addicted to drugs until he finds a prostitute “CHANDA” who has some different story to tell. The director has got the inspiration probably from the DPS and BMW incidents of Delhi. The movie ends with the DEVD happily settling with CHANDA.
The movie contains some bold dialogues and it’s difficult to believe that the censor board has not given the “A” certificate to it. If you are a bachelor and have interest in different kind of cinema this movie is worth to watch.
