Did You Know?
About Devdas (2002): It's got a garish, nautanki format to it. I've paid tributes to all films like it, from Full Moon
(1961) to Prem Rog
(1982). I've made the film as Raj Kapoor would have made it - over the top. I can't get Bimal Roy's subtle format and delineation anyway...
He is the only director, besides the legendary Guru Dutt
, who created his films in total isolation from the public. In fact, two of Dutt's films - Kaagaz Ke Phool
(1959) and Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam
(1962) - are Bhansali's favourite movies. His wish is to remake either or both of these movies at some point in his career, as well as to make a biopic on Guru Dutt's life.
His films often feature emotional pain and trauma being exprienced by his protagonists.
