Binod of art in the form of

Binod Pradhan’s eye for detail cannot be missed as he playswith the camera with imaginative technics used for angles and lighting. Thegood thing is that before the viewer gets too caught up in admiring Aishwarya’sexotic hairclip, the shot switches to the sorrow in her eyes. Ms. Verma alsospoke about few beautiful moments from the film. Right from the beginning ofthe film till the every moment was beautifully shown.

Dialogues written were soperfect and amazing. When it comes to films there are definitely few flaws butstill carried very beautifully, some of the flaws according to Ms. Verma arehow Paro’s mother was portrayed about dreaming about her daughter and also hoeDevdas’s mother and sister in law were portrayed, they were too loud for thescreen play. According to her, “ The entire Paro-Chandramukhi face off comes across asa purely commercial gimmick. It does nothing to the storyline. The Dola re dola songthough beautifully picturised in hues of red, white and gold is a futileexercise”.

According to the reviewer the film is completely basedon performance how each actor does justice to the character assigned to them. The critical analysis of the film “ Devdas” by Kabir Ahamed, begins with the statement, “ calling Devdas a modernmasterpiece would be an understatement”. Mr. Ahamed, refers Devdas as “ future classic” in his analysis.

This filmfor next few years will stay as visually ravishing film in the history of Indianfilm industry and he adds that this piece of art in the form of film can betaken as a reference text for the future masterpiece. However, waxingeloquent over a film’s place in the record books does not necessarily mean thatthe film is without its flaws. How can a film that unabashedly uses up all ofthe classic Hindi film clichés, makes a criminal use of colour, and frontsitself with a star cast that looks as if they’ve walked off a modelling ramp, expect to be taken seriously. Certainly director Sanjay Leela Bhansali wasn’tmaking this film for unromantic or uninteresting front-benchers.

That said, itdoesn’t seem like the film was indicated for a serious art-film audienceeither. I assume that the director wanted to strike a middle ground with hisaudience-base. To that extent, “ Devdas” effortlessly climbs into thatspecial realm where movies don’t need to have a specific target audience tosucceed. There is both shamelessly commercial saccharine and high-brow avantgarde dialogue, usually one after the other; very frequently in the same frame. To call this ‘ genius’ on part of the director is something that bears debating, but Bhansali demonstrates that hes no fool with the camera, nor with the seamlessscreenplay, especially during the interaction between the three principalcharacters.

According to the critics Devdas is the most celebrated love storyand the most painful. Most of the Bollywood films promise happy endings and few things are unrealistic but whenit comes to Devdas it is heart breaking how Devdas and Paro are separated andhow Chandramukhi a court dancer falls in love and gets denied by Devdas.
