Devdas and Parvati had been inseparable as children, and as they grew older, Love Blossomed. Devdas is sent away for studies by his parents - he and Parvati are separated. A chain of events lead to Parvati being married off to someone else and Devdas drowns his sorrows in alcohol. When Devdas is pronounced critical due to his drinking, he remembers the promise he had made to Parvati, of coming to see her before he dies. Will he fulfilled this promise or not?

A film that cannot be forgotten
12 October 2001 | by mohsinleghari3000See 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.
