Dev.D was going to mark the debut of Amit Trivedi as a music director but due to various reasons Dev.D took time in getting finished and released and by that time Aamir (2008) got released which eventually became his debut as a composer. Anurag Kashyap had actually recommended Amit Trivedi to Raj Kumar Gupta for Aamir. See more »
At around 59 mins Chunni calls out to Chanda to show her the bike he has purchased for her. While Chanda looks out from the Balcony, Chunni points to himself, his body language leading to my conclusion that it is for himself, while this mismatch is carefully patched by adding a dialogue ("Yes, for you") from Chunni, while the camera focuses on Chanda.

The film's name appears twice, once as the character's name and then as the film's name itself. See more »
A movie so great that it simply blows your heads off. Every character is Grey. No one is moral and every body is a victim of circumstances. the film is the pinnacle of movie making. the sheer audacity, rawness, and unrealistically realistic treatment creates magic on screen. and believe me one time is not good enough. songs are unbelievable as well. the characters of paro and chanda are so well written that before dev falls in love with them; u will fall in love with them. and both the ladies have done a remarkable job. mahi gill looks so elegant and an epitome of femininity. kalki has an amazing screen presence. with her earthy and next door girl looks, she will win ur heart and her school girl sexuality is incomparable. anurag is THE BEST director in this country and with a girlfriend like kalki he is a lucky bastard as well. and now we come to the real reason of watching the movie. abhay deol. he has become a cult figure for a lot of his fans. the concept is his and he has completely overshadowed and other devdas that ever was. from now on if anybody will be remembered as devdas, he will be abhay. after 7 movies he has overshadowed many heavyweights in the industry. he looks so natural and confident on screen. and how chilled this guy is can be judged from the fact that at the time of his biggest ever release he is rite now in new york for a welding course.
