Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for his vibrant and larger-than-life visuals even while showcasing an everyday scene. He showed a glimpse of this vision of his early on in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. But the film where the audience truly got to know his high scale cinematic mind was Devdas. The Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Jackie Shroff starrer completes 21 years today as it was released in 2002. It’s based on the story by the legendary author Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay.
Bhansali Productions celebrates 21 years of Devdas: “The Shah Rukh Khan starrer was a culmination of countless artistic elements woven together”
Even after more than two decades, Devdas continues to enchant the audience with Bhansali’s colourful frames and the poetic tragedy of Devdas (Khan) as he longs for his childhood love Paro (Aishwarya) but never gets reunited with her and eventually succumbs to alcoholism.
To commemorate the 21st anniversary of Devdas, Bhansali Productions have shared a special video of some appealing scenes from the movie on Instagram and wrote in the caption, “Embarking on an enchanting journey where love knows no bounds, Dev’s longing for Paro, intertwined with Chunni’s (Shroff) unwavering friendship and Chandramukhi’s (Madhuri) soulful solace, creates a tapestry of emotions that still resonates today. #21YearsOfDevdas.” The video showcases the entire journey of Devdas, from a childhood lover of Paro who eventually takes his last breath outside her house, without getting a final glimpse of her.
A statement from Bhansali Productions said, “Devdas was a culmination of countless artistic elements woven together with Bhansali’s visionary direction. From the breathtaking cinematography to the impeccable choreography, each frame was meticulously crafted, leaving an indelible impression on our cinematic landscape. The film seamlessly blended the grandeur of a period drama with the raw emotions of unrequited love, delivering a cinematic experience that resonated with audiences across the globe.”
Devdas saw Jackie Shroff as Chunni, a loyal and caring friend of Devdas, and Kirron Kher as the strong-willed mother of Paro.
