Watched it again yesterday. Of the film's three sections - named after the three protagonists - "Chanda" seems the least convincing. "Paro" gets almost everything right (Kashyap has a flair for handling character comedy which he often ignores) and "Dev D" is like a sensual head-trip, which is of course apt for the character. The redemption surprisingly rings true.
Well its movie which should have defined the indian cinema. Its diresction, art , scenes are made to be the the life in India is, its a tell tale of modern india with all the rhetoric and brute world in which w elive in. only sad point was if the rest of movies were true to reality of Indian life.
Dev D is a modern day take on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's classic Bengali novel Devdas, previously adapted for the screen by such revered filmmakers as P.C. Barua and Bimal Roy and more recently by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Dev.D was embraced by the media, critics and public alike, and is considered to be amongst path breaking films in Hindi for the way it presented itself.
