Dev D Preview

'Devdas' gets a modern twist in Anurag Kashyap's Dev. D , a fresh and riveting tale of love lost and self-destruction.

Classically Sarat Chandra's Devdas has been hailed as the ultimate lover who drowns himself when he loses his love and goes onto the path of self-destruction. Kashyap's 'Dev.D', on the other hand, unabashedly proclaims Dev as the hypocrite who drowns in self pity and as a man who could not stand up for himself.

Character Sketches:

Abhay Deol as Dev D

Son of a rich industrialist who is sent away to London when he was 12, Dev returns to his hometown and to Paro, his childhood sweetheart. Though they seem inseparable, a momentary rush of blood puts their lives in a tizzy. Paro is married off to someone else and Dev goes into severe depression. Not one to take on responsibilities for his acts, Dev digs deep into drugs and alcohol for salvation. He stays away from home but his finances still come from a doting father. An escapist instinct and a massive ego leads him into an aimless search for lost love that pushes him further into an abyss of darkness and hopelessness soaked in self pity.

Mahi Gill as Paro

Dev's neighbour and childhood friend Paro is a free spirit riding high on the life with nothing but an indestructible faith in her Dev. That faith is shattered in a major turn of events, and she is resigned to marry an older man with children. Paro picks up the threads of her life and moves on with a lot of grit and dignity and she hopes Dev can do the same.

Kalki Koechlin as Chanda

Leni likes to live her life on the edge - a rich student with hyperactive hormones and a penchant for adventure. After a devastating MMS scandal she is abandoned by her family and forced into isolation. As a runaway she finds shelter with Chunni, a pimp. With great determination and inner strength she adopts an alter ego - Chanda. As Chanda she gets to be a high profile escort by night while Leni remains a college student by day. With Coke in her head and money at her disposal, Chanda/Leni lives life on her own terms - no holds barred.

Taking the basic plot from Sarat Chandra's 'Devdas', Kashyap gives the story a new spin.

Dev, Paro and Chanda of 'Dev D' reflect the sensibilities, conflicts, aggression, independence, free thought, exuberance and recklessness of the youth of today. A generation that is jammed between Eastern roots and Western fads.

'Dev D' is set in the rustic and colourful Punjab and also explores the dingy, morbid, dark underbelly of Delhi. From sprawling mustard fields to a riot of neon, it's been written and directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by UTV Spotboy.
