There's a major difference between KL Saigal, Dilip Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan and Abhay Deol's Devdas. DEV D is different from others. Dev, the lead character of the move, is into drugs and vodka. Paro sends her nude pic to Dev via email and later, wants Dev to have sex with her in the fields. Chanda, a hooker, indulges in phone sex mainly. Clearly, Kashyap’s Dev, Paro and Chanda are audacious and rebellious.
One can say that DEV D is a bridge between original and Bhasali’s Devdas. In ‘Dev D’ the director takes just the spirit of ‘Devdas’ and woven it around contemporary headlines from the last 10-15 years. Though, Kashyap accepted that he never liked Sarat Chandra’s novel.
Watching Dev D is akin to doing atyachaar on oneself!
Son of a rich industrialist, who is sent away to London when he was 12, Dev (Abhay Deol) returns to his hometown and to Paro (Mahi Gill), his childhood sweetheart. Inseparable as they seem, a misunderstanding puts their lives in a tizzy; Paro is married off to someone else and Dev goes into severe depression.
Post Paro’s marriage, DEV D starts going downhill. Lenny/Chanda’s MMS scandal is straight out of life and the reasons that make her turn into a hooker are well explained. But the sequences between Dev and Chanda lack fizz.

Amit Trivedi’s music sounds good to the ears.
My statistics say that one is bound to watch a movie whose music sounds good. Although movies like Dev D don’t need to prove themselves but the Patna Ke Presleys starring in the song everyone is talking about, Emotional Atyachar, is a clear signal that Anurag Kashyap means business. The music has been composed by Amit Trivedi and take my word for it, it’s one hell of a ride.
Emosanal Attyachaar - Rock Version
This is the big A in awesome! And the party has just started says the soundtrack to me. I’ll still say that the brass band version is better any day but this is not bad. Not bad either. Rocking!
