Times of India rated it 5 stars. Everywhere people gave the best ratings for the film. Said it was unconventional. Truly modern. Abhay Deol is the best. Chanda is best.The song emotional atyachar was superhit.
I am not sure, whether I should write the post as a review, because I could not even understand many parts of the film. Had I not watched the previous or original Devdas movie, I would not have understood what they were showing at all. There were so many scenes where I raised my eyebrows (not that you can easily identify that raising!). Also there were so many unresolved questions too.
Where do we see or realize or sense that Dev D actually loved or cared for Paro?
What is Paro’s stand in the whole movie? Is she crazy? Being amateur in teenage years is agreeable. But sending nude photos to London?!
And our Dev D seeing “that” realizes that he needs to come back!!! What yaar!! Doesn’t they see more of that in England or London? I didn’t find anything in that photo she sent!! 😐
And then after sometime into the marriage, when called upon, Paro comes and does all the chores for “our” Dev D!! Was she a servant? If atleast she loved, she could have respected her “love” na?
Wait.. Respecting love? Guess I am talking like Anurag Kashyap now!
And the f word. Why was it not “bleep”ed? I guess that was the first Hindi film I saw which had that without bleeping…
Truly, the director had been seeing so many English movies. The innumerous background songs with increasing sound in between made my job harder. Most of the time I had to sit near the pc so as to adjust the volume!! Phew!
Only part I understood is Chanda’s character. Thank God. Or else the two hours we took for watching the movie would have gone to waste!!
Poor RK. He never gets to watch good movies! 😐
Any movie recommendations, guys?
