Devdas from '56 is a fantastic movie..DK is just great. And Devdas from 2k2 is not bad, but the one with DK is just great...Very nice acting by DK (very natural)

The other 2 versions I haven't seen it...so can't say anything about them..... rolleyes.gif

I am very sorry that Dilip Kumar is being compared with Hollywood Actors. It is just like that you compare Biryani with Hot Dog !
Hollywood's actors are very different, their mannerism, their atitude, their style as well as their culture are very different with ours. What Dilip kumar has done in Devdas, no any actor of Hollywood can do. I bet.
Dont see Devdas as a Rona Dhona film. See it to see the best direction, best acting, best storyline, best beauty, best music. Dilip Kumar is just great in this film. If you want to laugh to see Devdas, please see Sahgal's Devdas. LOL.

I have seen most of Dilip Kumar's movies, most of Amitabh's movies & quite a few of SRK's movies. I have not seen any of the versions of Devdas, as I could'nt make myself watch a drunken tragedy. But given a choice, I would watch a Dilip movie any day, any time. He is a class by himself, acting personified.

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.

OK in bengal during that time there were no mansions of the sorts shown in this DEVDAS (2002). Moreover, Parvati and the dancer never meet!!!!

It is the simplicity of rural Bengal that gives it the appeal, which no amount of extravaganza can even start a comparison!!!!!

Even the Bengali version by Uttam, Soumitra Chatterjee was not good.

A classic scene in the Bimal Roy version shows Chandramukhi (Vyjayantimala) going in search of Devdas (Dilip Kumar) and the palki carrying Paro (Suchitra Sen) going past her in the opposite direction. That the closest they came to meeting!

But that would not leave scope for "Dola Re Dola". sad1.gif

Priya ji, agar in filmon ko dekhne ke liye aap ko saat samandar paar bhi jaana pade, Everest ki choti par bhi pohonchna pade...... to der na karen...... kyunki ye saari filmen Indian Film Industry ke anmol heere hain.... aur in ke baghair Indian Film Industry ka iteehaas adhura hai.

Classic films like Mother India, Do Bigha Zameen, Shree 420, Guide, Mughal-e-Azam, Ganga Jamuna and Devdas (Dilip Kumar).

Unniji it is better I don't speak any more on this as my heart will start ruling over my brain and I might hurt feelings of people who liked it !! tongue.gif tongue.gif

Just this much sarat Chandra is closing his eyes and shedding tears at what people have made of his DEVDAS in heaven!!!

Well, guess we know that Bimal-da's version was faithful to the original Saratchandra story -- virtually an 'art film'. Whereas we recognize that the recent Bollywood version was a "glossy entertainer".

I've heard good things about the old Hindi version starring K. L. Saigal, but haven't watched it.

SLB's Devdas was absolutely off the mark from the novel. You cant call it as a making of the novel on the celluloid.. it could be only termed as an adaptation. The story has been changed a lot. Due to the photography and ostentatious sets.. the movie attracted the eye!

The earlier one with Dilip Kumar and others, well cant comment as I havent seen it! The same goes for the earlier version !!

I guess one should not compare the book to the movie at any time!

The same is true for Parineeta - 3 to 4 versions of the movie have been made!
