Devdas is without a doubt the most amazing Bollywood flick I’ve ever seen. Basically it’s Bollywood with all its aspects turned up to eleven: musical numbers, lavish costumes, bigass sets, love triangle, Drama! (TM), and painfully beautiful women. Of the latter, here we have Exhibit A: Aishwarya Rai, the most beautiful woman in the world.
Incidentally, the soundtrack to this flick is amazing. And I would give your right arm for just the musical score on CD–the instrumental stuff is even better than the songs.
Oh, one last thing: there was a lot of buzz before Casino Royale started up that Rai would be tapped as the next Bond girl. That would have guaranteed the worldwide box office take for the next Bond film would have gone through the freaking roof. Talk about your missed opportunity.
