Dev.D

Dev.D. I didn’t know name of this movie when I heard its promo song for first time. It was the song which made me find more about the movie. The song was Emosanal Attyachar and still I like it as much as I did when I heard it for first time.

 

From the time, music album of this movie is out, I am kinda hooked to some of its typical songs and would definitely like to watch this movie specially when now I have idea of its plot as well. In case you are curious, it is about modern Devdas starring Abhay Deol (I predict that he will be the actor who will be one of the most talked about celebrities on this blog in this year :D) and 2 new unheard heroines – one is typical Paaro who is simple and other is Chanda who is shown as worst girl one can be.

Dev.D is a drug addict guy and that’s how story moves in Chandigarh and Delhi cities (I love these cities). And then Dev.D also lands in Calcutta where he meets Chanda.

Abhay is an actor whose every movie has been different starting from Socha Na Tha, then Ahista Ahista to Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! and now Dev.D. All these roles are as difficult and vast for an actor as difficult is for Mallika Sherawat to wear clothes covering her full body. And that’s why I have not missed any single movie by this actor though some stories never seemed justified to me.

 

Dev.D has also to do with music as something like Patna Ke Presley is mentioned in its promo. Then they say that DPS mms scandal is also part of it. It is buzzing as if it will be altogether quite boxed movie to entertain you for every single minute. Let us wait for that but it will be one very different movie from common stream, I am sure.

It has gotten 15 songs, many of which are pretty good. I specifically like Dunia (too realistic), Emosional Attyachar (funky), Dev Chanda Themes 2 (Instrumental), Dil Mein Jagi (classic) and Hikk Naal (typical punjabi – those who can understand its lyrics know how meaningful it is!!) – quite versatile and different. Other tracks are good as well and I am waiting to hear them again as they are being played in winamp in background. Kudos to its lyricists (Amitabh Bhattacharya, Shellee, Shruti Pathak and Mani) and musician Amit Trivedi who has also sung four songs in album including Dunia.

 

Lyrics of its title song go like this –

Yeh dil pighla ke saaj bana loon
dhadkan ko aawaz bana loon
smoking smoking nikle re dhuaan

 

Seene mein jalti hai armaanon ki arthi
arey what to tell you darling kya hua
hai sapne dekhe jannat ke
par mitti mein mil jaein
phookein re ghar baar ki duniya
koi bole good bye
Chad jae haye Allah
jisko bhi yeh bukhaar

 

Tauba tera jalwa, tauba tera pyar,
tera emosanal attyachar
tauba tera jalwa, tauba tera pyar
tera emosanal attyachar
jao jao oh dilbar
oh dilbar oooh
tauba tera jalwa, tauba tera pyar,
tera emosanal attyachar!

 

Ho gai dil ke paar tragedy, tragedy,
lut gai re bahaar, gul sookh sookh murjhae
Ho gai dil ke paar tragedy, tragedy
lut gai re bahaar, gul sookh sookh murjhae,

 

Bol bol why did you ditch me
zindagi bhi le le yaar kill me
bol bol why did you ditch me whore
bol bol why did you ditch me
zindagi bhi le le yaar kill me
jao pia jao pia jao pia

 

Tauba tera jalwa, tauba tera pyar…

 

Trivia: Emosanal Attyachar was originally Emotional Atyachar as it should sounds actually and was written as such in first ever post about this song by director of Dev.D – Anurag Kashyap. There he also writes about the inspiration behind this song. Secondly, in start Rajeev Khandelwal was booked to act in this movie (mentioned in same post by director) and this should hard time for Rajeev to know how well it is doing in its promos.
