Dev D is a new take of Devdas created by Saratchandra Chatterjee and now imagined in a new avatar by Abhay Deol, while he was in NY. This Dev D is Devinder and the movie leaving some things asides entertains. Saw with a friend who has come from Scotland for enjoying his holidays. Co-incidence was… both Dev & my firned have done their Masters from UK and so the dialogues on Dev the character were quite humorous for Rahul….!!!!
The story is as simple as that.. a boy falls in love with his childhood gf and he accidently turns the offer down once as the girl is a child of his father’s factory assistant and when he confronts with an ego of being “class”ically above her family. She unites with an old man quite elder to her and already with kids. Dev beomes a serial drug addict and a drinker to the core…and ultimately end to find a friend in a brothel.
In the original one, the hero dies due to alcohol addiction, where as Abhay has twisted the end in the latest flick and which ends with a positive note.
