A film that cannot be forgotten
12 October 2001 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie and no doubt it is a master piece of Dilip Kumar's acting. The respect for him in both co-stars really impressed me.I think no one can act like as he has done in that film in this kind of script.I have heard that Shahrukh Khan is also playing a role of Devdas in Sanjay Leela's new movie but I do not think he can act so well. Dilip Kumar got the Film Fare Award of Best Actor for year 1955. The script of this movie was very sad and I have never seen this type of script in any other movie. The script was actually taken from a novel. I have given 10 marks to this movie. The acting of other cast was also very impressive. The music was also excellent.
