Dev D (Hindi)
Dev D is a modern-day love story. Dev, Paro and Chanda of Dev D reflect the sensibilities, conflicts, aggression, independence, free thought, exuberance and recklessness of the youth of today. A generation that is jammed between eastern roots and western sensibilities.
Dev D is set in the rustic and colourful Punjab and also explores the dingy, morbid, dark underbelly of Delhi. It takes us from sprawling mustard fields to a riot of neon; from Punjabi ballads to mayhem in rock.
Fantastic movie. Really loved every single bit of it!
Music is also very nice, specially the "Emotional Atyachaar" and "Pardesi" songs.
A mix of rare spontaneity and suffocating vanity marks Anurag Kashyap's 'Dev D', but for all its boldness, all its experiment with angle and colour, Dev D stands out as an interpretation of a classic tale which has transformed itself more into a social archetype.
