"Rs 50 crore hasn't given the film a new life. The opulence kills whatever agony the protagonists suffer. The tragedy never reaches its poignancy."
"Devdas is part of the Indian consciousness. Devdas' journey is resonant for a lot of Indians. It invokes a sense of loss for a life that's passed."
"Devdas is timeless. P.C. Barua and Bimal Roy also took liberties with the text. So why not Bhansali so long as the spirit of the novel is rightly narrated."
