"Devdas" is the most eagerly awaited historical epic to release this summer 2002 by EROS International. A special report on this film is brought to you by Manish Gajjar, our local Bollywood Film Specialist.

If you are keen to see the breathtaking images of this opulent and majestic epic then why not visit our 'Devdas Gallery'.

This is the story of Abhay who lives a happy life in the busy city of Mumbai. His small but contented family, consisting of his widowed mother and a younger sister, has never experienced the love of an extended joint family.

But all this is about to change. Abhay receives a letter from his grandfather who invites him and his family to a religious ceremony in his native village.
Overwhelmed by the invitation, Abhay's family decide to visit their long-lost relations for the first time.

When they arrive Abhay is faced by a certain feeling of rejection by the grandfather's extended family. But being amiable and friendly, he soon wins the heart of each individual in the household.

The sub-plot in this family drama comes from the grandfather's next door neighbours. Abhay not only finds that there is an estranged relationship between the two families but also that they are actually related to each other!

He decides to get to the bottom of the reason behind this family feud.

Naturally a film without a female lead would make the story unappealing. Abhay's love interest comes in the form of Mangla, a close friend of the family.

But before their relationship can pick up speed, some hard-hitting truths from the past begin to surface. These begin to haunt the family.

It is up to Abhay to remedy this and the only way he can do so is by sacrificing his love for Mangla. And that forms the climax of this family drama.

Director Ravi Shankar has managed with great success to portray the relationships and bonds of a typical joint Indian family. He has matched each and every frame from its Telugu counterpart.

Technically the production values are excellent, especially the art direction by Sharmishta Roy who has re-created rural village life to perfection.

Ajay Vincent's camera handling has captured some innovative frames of the natural beauty of the village.

The same goes for the choreography, which includes some unusual dance steps. These match well to Anu Malik's musical score.

Performances by both Fardeen Khan and Richa Pallod are commendable but it is the supporting cast of Farida Jalal, Sharad Kapoor and Vikram Gokhale which impresses.

Overall this is a film which will appeal to all ages. It provides good family entertainment, which is what today's audience is looking for. After all 'Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahein' is all about 'Pyaar Bhare Rishton Ki Ek Pyaar Bhari Kahani ...''
