DevD Hindi Film review

DevD is the retelling of tragic story of devdas in modern settings.Eventhough it is a familiar story already remade many times,this film differs by the novel treatment by Anurag Kashyap.Music plays an important role here.Amit Trivedi's music is excellent and appropriate placement of songs take the movie forward.Through Dev,how the emotion of love can destroy as well as redeem a man is shown expertly by director and he succeeds in it without any melodrama associated with usual commercial Hindi cinema.

Abhay Deol as Dev shines and is able to portray the gradual self destruction of Dev effectively.Mahi Gill as Paro and Kalki Koechlin as Chanda is adequate.One weakness I found was the back story of Chanda which was not convincing.

My rating :  ABOVE AVERAGE
