A sublime tale of sorrow
31 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Devdas is a story of unfulfilled love and heart melting tragedy. It is an icon of sorrow in Hindi cinema. Such is the excellence of this saga that a lot of people get sadness in their hearts if not tears in their eyes at the end.

This was the first Hindi version of Devdas. If we consider that the movie was made in 1936 and judge it accordingly then I must say it is an outstanding effort and a masterpiece of art. All main actors and supporting cast perform their role in a magnificent manner. The direction and screenplay is very powerful. Cinematography of Bimal Roy deserves applause.

All in all, a must watch for Hindi movie lovers. It is available for free on internet.
