I have only watched the 2002 version.
But from what I've heard my father and other seniors who had watched Dilip Kumar's version say about Dilip's acting makes me think seriously about watching it.
They all speak highly of Dilip's softness, both in the eyes and the facial expressions. And how Shah Rukh face doesn't possess that softness.
I guess what others might hold against Devdas(2002) is the whole financial sway that it holds over the previous movies made and also over its contemporaries.

10 Reasons to Watch Devdas (1956)

1. Its a Bimal Roy Film
2. Dilip Kumar's Acting
3. Camerawork
4. Suchitra Sen's beauty
5. Vaijayantimala's Dances
6. Motlilal's acting
7. For the song Mitwa.... and folk melodies of Bengal(baul?)..
8. Burman da's mix bag of average, good and classic songs and Salil da's BGM
9. Guest appearances of Johny Walker, Pran and Mehmood... (Trivial reasons)
10. After all its Devdaas.. a classic novel by Sharatchandra... why not...

Give it a try guys.. you wont be disappointed...

The only reason could be point no. 9 that is if ever I make an attempt to watch that movie!

Point 2 will definitely make me say no no!

I haven't seen any version & do not even intend to see any. "Kahe Ko Khali Fokat Rona Dhona!"

I like music of 2 Devdas which are K. L. Saigal & Dilipkumar's.

So no voting rolleyes.gif

Please see my review of this movie: (in Hindi) at

http://www.kulsh.com/BaitheThale.htm

I agree with most of you. The story of Sharatchandra is neither idealistic nor realistic -- at least not in today's society.

The novel has a greast HISTORICAL importance, nothing more.

This story was most unfit to spend so much money on....

Vimal Roy's version was so much better.

No fan of 1935 Devdas. Koi baat nahin main to
ek gaane ke liye hi ise dekh sakta hoon:

Balam aaye baso mere man mein.

"The film was a complete departure from the then prevalent theatricality in acting, treatment and dialogue. Barua initiated a style of acting that was natural and unaffected. His method was to underplay, to convey emotion through the slightest tremor of the voice and use significant pauses in between the dialogue to maximum effect. This naturalness of tone spilled over to the dialogue as well. Rather than dialogue in a florid style as was prevalent then, Barua who had been exposed to European naturalistic trends ensured the dialogue in the film was the way in which one spoke in real life. "

quoted by a gentleman on net. smile1.gif

A trend setter fillam at that time.

And Balam ..........song is one of the earliest romantic
songs of HF Industry. It is representative song of that
decade. Above all, KL Sehgal's voice adds always
special. Song is based on a rare raga of classical music
'sindura'., a raga popular among singers of Agra Gharana.
The Raga is however easily available in Instrumental form
by the Great maestro Pt. Ravishankar and Buddhadeb Dasgupta.

Interesting note is this is one of anytime ragas. smile1.gif

worth a see atleast(for cine lovers).

NONE - don't like sad stories! I prefer DK's 60's movies compared to older movies!
IMO, DK is the greatest actor!


If you get in bed with government, you should expect to walk funny the next day!!!!!!!!!!!
