Devdas is the story of a love beyond all else...even life.
The saga of a man called Devdas who loved,loved and just loved...
Devdas shared a magnetic childhood with his lovely playmate Paro where supreme love was felt before it was understood. When youth beckoned, the loved intensified. But, alas, a fateful moment of weakness on the part of Devdas created a permanent wall of seperation between him and his beloved Paro. On one side of the wall was a heartbroken Paro who became the wife of another. And on the other, was a completely shattered Devdas.
Unable to bear the agony of a life without Paro, Devdas made alcohol his constant companion. But that could not make him forget the piercing pain. Even the unflinching devotion of a beautiful courtesan Chandramukhi, did not ease the heartache of losing Paro. It was only when his eyes closed to a permanent sleep, did the pain begin to fade.
But even before losing the light of life, all Devdas urged, was to see his Paro just once ...
Thus giving his love the greatest dignity ... It was at Paro's doorstep, that the doors of heaven opened for Devdas.
He left behind a testimony of true love,that was pure, chaste, undemanding... and thus immortal. Indeed, love was his life... love makes him live on...
