This sadness not only breaks Devdas heart but confines him to alcohol in a big way. শরৎ বাবু তো শুধু একটা চরিতর সৃষটি করেন নি, বাংলা সাহিতযকে একটা নাম দিয়ে গেছেন, একটা বযাখযা দিয়ে গেছেন। দেবদাস বলতে আমরা এমন এক ছযাকা খাওয়া পরেমিককে বুঝি, যার মুখে থাকবে খোঁচা খোঁচা দাড়ি, ফোলা ফোলা লাল চোখ, বুক ভরতি পাহাড় সমান কষট। নিজের উপর যার কোন নিয়নতরণ থাকবে না, জীবন নিয়ে কোন আশা থাকবে না, হতাশার সাগরে সাঁতার কাটা এমন পরেমিকদেরই এখন দেবদাস বলে আখযায়িত করা হয়। অথচ কে বলবে দেবদাস শুধু একটা উপনযাসের মূল চরিতরের নাম? Though we know the story of Devdas, it is Gripping through out the novel, but personally I loved movie than Novel because of Visual wonders and Excellent acting by Excellent Actors. The premise here is that both Devdas and Parvati were soulmates, yet couldn't be together in their lifetime. Its a Bengali story, no doubt, but when the movie is in Hindi, one does not expect the cast to suddenly break out into Bengali just to placate regional audiences or would-be critics. Archived from on 10 March 2018. Devdas sinks into alcoholism, and is later visited by Paro who admits to still loving him.
Ranga Rao, Chilakalapudi Seeta Rama Anjaneyulu, and Surabhi Kamalabai were selected to portray supporting roles. However, Bhuvan's ill-natured son-in-law Kalibabu Milind Gunaji , a frequent visitor to the brothel, reveals Chandramukhi's background and humiliates her in front of the guests. Finally, I got a chance to read it, Though sharukh khan and Aishwarya are glued in mind I tried my level best to remove them from my mind and read it Its difficult because book cover also filled with Sharukh and Aishwarya images. While we ate, our captors negotiated with local chiefs. But Zamindar Narayan Mukherjee Vijay Crishna , Devdas' father, met Paro's mother Sumitra's Kiran Kher marriage proposal with condescending arrogance. Its unclear to me why I sympathize with Devdas, but that seems to be the common thing. The novel set in colonialist India, makes no mention of British rule other than the Devdas who is dressed smartly and smokes a pipe when he returns from Calcutta after his studies.
Devdas film based on the Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay novella Devdas. His first film, a poetic piece entitled 'Khamoshi' 'Silence' was an immediate failure in India, where people weren't too interested in the tale of a young girl who sings her way to the hearts of her deaf-mute parents literally. Each agrees to respect the other's limitations,at least for the time being. Somehow he feels betrayed by Paro, never realizing that she was the one who had loved him first, that she had said it out loud first. But I would definitely like to give a standing ovation to Sarat Chandra who wrote such a beautiful story of complex characters - searching for something which they can never get. It would be fitting to include Sarat Chandra to the canon of literature due to his indelible mark on Indian literature with his unforgettable character Devdas.
Devdas' family never comes across as the sort of family that truly loves their son. In the book Wicked, Elphaba was misunderstood and treated poorly. Onthe other hand, I am not entirely convinced that profound thoughthese civilizational differences between societies may be, thateach can be so tidily essentialized as to call for an altogetherdifferent psychoanalytic methodology. It seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali try to renew the old style of the Hindi films into a kind of an innovative and colorful theatrical film. But Devdas' dad has other plans, vehemently opposing marriage to a lower caste family, and as a result Paro gets married to a much older widower with grown-up children her age, and Devdas leaves home, becomes an alcoholic, a womanizer, who is unable to get Paro out of his mind, loving and hating her at the same time. This is such a beautiful, deceptively simple novella. For example, how do the dancers and the lead actresses jump in step and perform elaborately choreographed dance-moves within minutes of meeting each other? The original story itself was rather simple - Devdas wants to marry his childhood sweetheart, and even though his girlfriend's family has no apparent problem with this, his own family clearly does.
It was notthat the babu believed the charge, but rather that he failed tounderstand its ideological thrust. Paro is delirious when her servants inform her that the man outside has her name tattooed on his arm, and that letters in his pocket reveal that his name is Devdas Mukherjee. While in Story of O the masculine and feminine postures are definite though in constantneed of re-inscription, in Devdas the masculine and the femininepostures alternate. It's a story that reads like a lot of the parables of Jesus that I was taught as a child. Even if you are the happiest person on Earth, this book will depress you.
Then Paro decides to talk Chandramukhi out of getting Devdas away from alcohol, to which Chandramukhi agrees, but the question remains whether they will act in time to stop Devdas before he self-destructs. Later Devdas begins to care for Chandramukhi but he cannot love her as he is still in love with Paro. Devdas is a typical man who falls for the beauty rather than the personality. I do wish that the translator understood enough of both languages to portray what was meant in Bengali, in English. When Paro demands that she hand over Devdas to her, Chandramukhi takes her to her room, where theres a small shrine she has retained.
Devdas realises Parvati is no longer the small girl he knew. I'm glad I read it, provides a lot of insight into the movies, which are different, but good in their own right, albeit portraying the main character as a hero rather than the anti-hero that he was. His love was sacrificed at the alter of his class and the ensuing ego of the family that he shared - and his temper. It is vibrant enough to paint a vivid picture of institutions like Family and Marriage and also how they control our dreams and desires in the cycle of life. I cannot speak for any English translations as I've never read one. Paro is endlessly plagued by her instincts - something tells her that theres a lot amiss - and she is uneasy and nervous, though shes not sure why.
However, Paro and her mother, now humiliated beyond redemption as they see it decide that Dev doesn't really love her, and Paro reluctantly agrees to get married to her mother's choice of alliance. Nothing of the sort is stated here. Devdas dies, whispering Paro's name with his last breath. Class differences also tear apart the burgeoning relationship between Chandramukhi and Devdas, as she is a fallen woman who Devdas cannot possibly break social norms to live with. Later when she lacks the resources to take care of hisfailing health, she renews her activities in a spirit of altruism.
The only problem I had with the story from here on is that the characters aren't fleshed out as well as one would imagine. She is doubtful of Chandramukhi's honesty at first and uses all the usual clichés in the book while insulting a prostitute. In the morning, she arises and notices that the crowd is still gathered around the drunkard. Shah Rukh Khan treads this line carefully. I often feel like women in India are the victim of so many cliches- one just has to look at the jokes, in which the wife is portrayed as a silly, managing woman and the husband a victim of marriage- and so am surprised that this author was so different. After a week of shooting, the film was shelved due to the view that such a story might not succeed in Telugu; the production company instead produced Shanti, which became a failure. His article endeavours to make a critical intervention in current South Asian Studies by aiming to provide novel theoretical frame work, hitherto unknown and unheard in Indian film studies, to which philosophical and traditional tenets grounding the novella of Devdas can be anchored.
