Devdas: Fave Hindi Movie (Not a movie review)

Devdas, the very famous Bollywood movie produced in 2002, I would say to be my most favourite Hindi movie of all times. Having won many awards and nominations, including a nomination for the best foreign language film in the BAFTA, it has truly been an epic with its all-star casts, Aishwarya Rai, Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit.

Here's a picture from the scene where Paro was singing "Silsila Ye Chaahat Ka"

The movie's story line is brilliant with the twists that kept me guessing. Generally it is about Deva (Shah Rukh Khan) loving Paro (Aishwarya Rai) but couldn't have her fully. So she married another guy and Deva became depress. Later, the famous courtesan Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit) fell in love with Deva but her love was never returned. So the story continues and ended with the death of Deva (sorry, too simple of a description for the plot).

Aishwarya Rai (Paro)

Shah Rukh Khan (Deva)

Madhuri Dixit (Chandramukhi)

The songs in this movie are simply awesome. Below are some of my favourites.

Hamesha Tumko Chaha (a very emotionally intriguing song)

Dola Re Dola

Silsila Ye Chaahat Ka

BTW, the main reason I fell in love with this movie is because it introduced me to Aishwarya Rai and it was simply love at first sight.
