Bhansali is notorious for his modern-day redemptions of classic love stories and he didn’t fail to impress in Devdas. This is a tragic love story set in the 30s, featuring a grieving Devdas (Sharukh Khan) who falls in love with his childhood sweetheart Parvati (Aishwariya Rai), oblivious to their family statures. When his parents reject the marriage, he gives into coward-ness and heads to a brothel. Devdas then befriends a courtesan Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit) and finds comfort in alcohol with the aid of his “friend” (Jackie Shorff). All the actors were impeccable in their portrayals as distraught-in-love characters, you can almost feel all their anguish through their powerful screen performances. The intricate designed costumes and big-budgeted sets were majestic, leaving you in awe. This film also features one of the best musical and dance performances in Bollywood including the iconic “Dola re Dola”. What was so especially astounding about this film were the unforgettable dialogues and themes. This film brought light to feminism where in a time it ceased to exist. It also revealed the intensity of statuses and how family pride can be your worst enemy. This was a cinematic masterpiece resulting into a favorite of mine. Rating: 5/5
