Dev D is one such flight of fancy from the filmmaker that definitely defies all conventions and demolishes all moulds. Not only does it rewrite the technique of the artistic medium, with its unusual cinematography, dizzy editing, non-linear plot narration, turn-of-the-century dialogues and breathtakingly bizarre audio track , it completely revises the ancient text.Don’t miss this film which completely reinvents the musical love story.

In its first forty odd minutes Dev D sucks you into its drama, shocking you with its brazenness, and more specifically with Kashyap’s audacious re-imagination of the plot and its characters.Still, director Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D, is a fresh, original take on the subject and the characters, but it’s also a long and tiresome film that is not for the fainthearted.

In Kashyap’s DEV D, Dev is into drugs and vodka. Paro sends her nude pic to Dev via email and later, wants Dev to have s** with her in the fields. Chanda, a hooker, indulges in phone s** mainly. Clearly, Kashyap’s Dev, Paro and Chanda are audacious and rebellious. On the whole, DEV D is NO SMOKING II. Does one elaborate more?

Even so, this is a rather radical project, a film that could well have done more but accomplishes far more than enough, and I think the only reason we expect even greater things is that it really, really whets our appetite.Randomness happens often in our newly-experimental cinema, but it’s always great to see a film where no detail is an accident, where the director gets to execute his vision exactly as he wants — and this seems pretty darned close.See Dev D once, get bombed, see it again.

In standing this tale on its head, in the stylistic flourishes and inventiveness that he brings to it, Kashyap has lost some of its emotional underpinning. You watch fascinated but your heart rarely aches for Dev. Abhay Deol puts in a taut and remarkably controlled performance, but the vulnerability is missing.Still, if you like your cinema far removed from the mainstream, don’t miss this one.

Perhaps the strongest point of Dev.D is its characterization. The film is as much a story of Chanda and Paro as it is of Dev Singh Dhillon.All the characters are almost equally strong. In fact chances are you might feel more for the women in the story than the self-consummated Dev.The tragic flaw of this protagonist is his ego and an inability to communicate his thoughts and feelings. What makes him extraordinary is the way he burns the candle from both ends and merrily basks in its glow.

Meet Anurag Kashyap’s Dev (Abhay Doel)- he’s brash, arrogant, ill-mannnered, demanding, lusty, impulsive and yes, self destructive.Meet Dev’s Paro (Mahi Gill) – she’s beautiful, doesn’t mind sending snaps in the buff to her lover and breaks into a jig at her own wedding.As you watch the film and see Dev steadily guzzle vodka and obsess about his lost love you wonder when he will hit rock bottom.But love is also known to set you free, uplift you, rescue you.So, go fall in love.

All in all, Dev D is one big emotional attyaachaar for all those seeking those two hours of entertainment. Those expecting lovey dovey moments please stay away. This one is only for those who wanna experience something really crazy.
