Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali

India 2002 185 mins. In Hindi

Operatic in every sense of the word, Bhansali’s adaptation of the legendary Bengali novel features dazzling sets and costumes, impossibly beautiful stars, and stunning musical numbers. When star-crossed childhood sweethearts (Shah Rukh Khan and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai) are wrenched apart by circumstance and harsh societal strictures, it sends them both into a tragic downward spiral. An opulent spectacle and a grand, sweeping eulogy to eternal love lost, “Devdas has a grandeur the old Hollywood moguls would have loved.”— Richard Corliss, Time Magazine.
