Devdas Synopsis

The son of Zamindar Narayan Mukherjee, Devdas Shahrukh Khan was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He grew up in the lush village of Taj Sonapur, where he spent his childhood, indulged by his lovely playmate Paro Aishwarya. They grew up sharing a special relationship, in which they existed only to each other. Oblivious of all the differences of status and background, a bond that would never break grew between them. Slowly, it changed to love but it was still unsaid. But the reverie was broken when his family sent Devdas to London for education. Paro's world crashed knowing that her Devdas would be gone and she lit a diya, for it signified the fast coming back of her loved one. Years passed and Devdas returned. Devdas was besotted by her stunning beauty and longed to have her back. But Zamindar Narayan Mukherjee Vijay Crishna, Devdas' father, met Paro's mother Sumitra's Kiran Kher marriage proposal with condescending arrogance. It caused a rift between the families and even though Devdas tried to convince his father, only antagonism came his way. Finally, he moved away from Paro and wrote a letter to her, asking her to forget him. Only, he didn't realize that he would never be able to forget her ever! And much later, when he reached out to her, it was too late as she was far too humiliated. She scorned him for not standing by her and they parted forever with a heart-broken Paro entering into a chaste marriage with a wealthy, much older man, Zamindar Bhuvan Vijayendra Ghagte, while a shattered Devdas walked towards anguish, alcoholism & Chandramukhi Madhuri Dixit. Chandramukhi, a stunning courtesan instantly lost her heart to Devdas. A unique bond was formed between both as he could share with her the intense pain of his unfulfilled love for Paro. Meanwhile, Paro, on the other hand, performed her worldly duties sincerely, but inside her heart, she could never forget Devdas for a moment. Strange was the fate of Devdas. Intensely loved by two women, who were never meant to be his. One whom he could never love and one whom he could never stop loving...


Not his dad's favorite, Devdas Mukherjee, is a slacker, though sensitive and talented. His daily chore is to spend time with his childhood friend, Parvati, the Mukherjees' neighbor, who belongs to a middle-class family. Devdas is sent away abroad so that he can improve himself. Several years, upon his return, things have not changed, his dad still regards him as a slacker, though Devdas is welcomed by the rest of his family, the welcome could have been warmer had Devdas chosen not to visit Parvati Paro, rather than his own mother. Devdas and Paro are in love, and hope to marry. 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. Devdas meets with courtesan, Chandramukhi, and ends up falling in love with her also, thus getting her a bad reputation. 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.

Devdas Preview

Three Bollywood stalwarts Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Nene and Aishwarya Rai play the leading roles in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's celluloid adaptation of Sarat Chandra's poignant saga of timeless love and unrequited emotions: Devdaas.

The film has Shahrukh Khan playing the title character of lovelorn Devdaas, Aishwarya as his childhood companion Paro, and Madhuri in the role of the infamous courtesan Chandramukhi. Macho Hunk Jackie Shroff too makes a special appearance in the film as Chunnilal, the close friend of Devdaas.

Born to the wealthy Zamindar Narayan Mukherji, Devdaas spends his childhood ensconced in the opulent surroundings far from the scourge of harsh realities. He wiles his time away with his callow playmate Paro. Together they weave adolescent dreams, make hay castles in the air, tease and chide each other - not conscious of the delicate bond that would culminate into platonic love one day.

But, instead the day comes when the inseparables have to part ways. Devdaas is being sent to London for higher studies and Paro is left in lurch to do nothing but to count-back the days when Devdaas would return from across the seven seas.

Years roll by before Devdaas returns, but he comes back a changed man - debauched by the sophistication of the west. But something of the past romance still smolders and Devdaas still feels drawn to gorgeous and nubile Paro. But Devdaas' Zamindar father looks down his proximity to Paro. He wants his son to marry in high society.

Unable to find acceptance in Devdaas' family Paro recedes into shadows and begins to rebuff his amorous advances. Soon she is married to an older Zamindar Bhuvan, although their marriage never consummates.

Separated from Paro, Devdaas takes to heavy drinking and begins spending his time at Kothas. Here, enters a special woman into Devdaas' bacchanalian and gloomy life - courtesan Chandramukhi.

Chandramukhi is impressed by Devdaas' open criticism of her profession. Devdaas, on the other hand, finds an outlet for his repressed emotions in Chandramukhi as she lends him an attentive ear. He knows she is the only one he can speak his heart to before drinking himself to death!!
