The acting from the two main stars were great. 10/10 for the acting! They were very realistic as the fantasy Romeo and Juliet. The romantic dialogue gave me the chills.
In case you do not know what it is about or if you're thinking about seeing it, this is what is about. Its about teenage girl Bella who moves to live with her father in the city Forks. She quite quickly makes friends at the high school, but then her life is about to change forever when she meets the strange Edward Cullin. Bella is fascinated by him, and they begin to get close. Then when Edward saves Bella from a car about to hit her, by pushing it away with his bare hands, she realises that there is something strange about him and his "family", and she intends to find out. The results of her investigation equal only one thing..... Edward is a vampire. Bella confronts Edward, and he confesses to the fact. But now Edward and Bella are in love, so its too late to turn back. The closer Bella becomes with Edward's family, the more she endangers herself. Sorry, you'll have to see it to find out what happens to the lovers.
I loved it, and for me.... thats all that matters.
I recommend this to all opera music lovers and romantic film lovers.
I love the storyline. Its about the lovers Devdas and Paro. Devdas is from a wealthy status family in India and Paro is of a poor family. Devdas and Paro live next to each other as children, and therefore become childhood sweethearts. Then, Devdas is sent away to school, and they are both separated. Ten years later Devdas comes back. Obviously, they fall in love. Because of their difference in fortune Devdas's father forbids them to be together, so Devdas goes away and tries to forget about Paro. But Devdas realises he can't live without Paro and returns only for him to find Paro is about to have an arranged marriage to an older man. So once again Devdas and Paro are separated, but this time for good. Devdas becomes an alcoholic as he tries desperately to recover from losing Paro through his own fault. Eventually, Devdas becomes seriously ill, and is told he will soon die. As he's moments from death, he remembers the promise he made to Paro (to go to her doorstep when he dies), and sets out to fulfil it. He makes it to his destination, but unfortunately Paro does not know he is there. When she finally finds out, she runs to Devdas to be with him, but doesn't make it in time. Its so tragic!! The acting is amazing from all the cast. Especially Shahrukh Khan (Devdas) and Aishwarya Rai's (Paro) performance, its no wonder they won so many awards! Maduri Dixit (Chandramuki) was also very good.
The music is wonderful. Its one of the best things about the film in my opinion. All the costumes were beautiful in this film! I really loved Chandramuki's outfit during the song "maar dala".
10/10! Excellent film!
It is very like the Pride and Prejudice story (man and woman meet and don't like each other, then end up falling in love). I actually saw it on DVD before reading the novel, which is strange for me. I do wish that one or two scenes more from the book had been added to the series, but that doesn't change my rating and admiration for it. I know they made another adaptation I think in the 50's or 60's with Patrick Stewart, but that was ages ago. I don't understand why they wait so long to make new films like that.
My favourite scenes was the dinner-party scene, the riot scene, the proposal scene, the "look back at me" scene, and most of all the ending scene.
All the performances were good. Richard Armitage (John Thornton) was excellent in his role. Wonderful acting from the main characters. I definitely recommend this series. You won't regret it!
