The film Devdas raises a few questions ? How much liberty a film maker can be allowed ? Is it fair to change locale ? A few incidents in the film are not mentioned in the book should such incidents be allowed to be included in the film.The attributes of the charactars of story are different from one the origianal author - is it fair to to him ? Devdas of Sharadbabu id different from that of Sanjay's.Can a film maker make such substatial changes in the plot of film. Say a character is shown to be dead at the end of the story , can a filmaker show him living at the end or if A marries B in ther story can a film maker show him marrying C ?There should be some limit. To me it seems Sanjay has crossed those limits.(Maybe its my opinion ).
