Dev D

This one depicts Delhi’s sub-culture. The movie got me hooked and I really look forward to the directorial ventures by the director Anurag Kashyap. I had minimal knowledge about the prevalence of a deep gutter belly, before I got the opportunity to see this movie. Now I analyze happenings around keeping in perspective the existence of it.

Narrated with the rich brat perspective about the son of Chandigarh based Industrialist, Dev (played by Abhay Deol) is presented as a typical male chauvinist. He was sent by his father to London, who thought that the boy will mend his ways without being with family. This took Dev away from his childhood sweet heart Paro (acted by Mahee Gill).

Some years down the line he comes back, with an implicit understanding of getting along with Paro. It goes along with dramatised nitty-gritties of dopes and alcohol! A parallel narration of Lennie’s (Kalki Koechlin) episode takes place – inspired by the notorious DPS MMS case. She soon becomes ‘Chanda’, a part of the notorious flesh trade based in Delh’s Paharganj.

All in the entire movie clearly indicates how the entire world conspires to take you where you aspire to reach. But often your aspirations and dreams are shattered by trust stabbers around. Beware of them and be smart to lead a respectful life!

Author’s Note: Unlike my previous reviews, which has been the narration of entire movie. I preferred to keep this one has been crisp and to the point. Thanks to the suggestion by a friend who said that my reviews should not be a narrative but something which will compel the readers to see the movie. Thanks dude!
