Shah Rukh Khan launches Devdas in print

We saw various versions of this classic romance - first, from the golden black and white era, then latest in 2002 in colour and not to forget the new-age 'Dev D'. And now in 2012, the film is back into print. What we are referring here is 'Devdas', the Bengali novel of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay which went to have several adaptations as a film.

Dilip Kumar starrer and Bimal Roy helmed 'Devdas' (1955) went on to became a cult film which was later remade by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, with Shah Rukh Khan in lead.

Recently SRK paid a tribute to the classic Bimal Roy's directorial by unveiling the print version of the film.

Om Books International, in association with Hyphen Films, released Nasreen Munni Kabir's 'The Dialogue of Devdas: Bimal Roy's Immortal Classic'. The book was released by Shah Rukh in the presence of the late Bimal Roy's Family and publisher, Om Books International, Ajay Mago.

'The Dialogue of Devdas: Bimal Roy's Immortal Classic' features the film's complete dialogue by Rajinder Singh Bedi, based on a screenplay by Nabendu Ghosh, and lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi. It is presented in a three-language format: Hindi, Urdu, Romanised Hindi/Urdu and an English translation, the book also includes an introduction by Nasreen Munni Kabir and comments by Bimal Roy's family. Also, the book is accompanied by a free DVD of the film 'Devdas'.

The launch was attended by several celebrities, namely - Imtiaz Ali, Deepti Naval, Nandita Das, Shazahn Padamsee, Tisca Chopra and Satish Kaushik among others.

Speaking at the book launch, Nasreen Munni Kabir said, "Bimal Roy spent his life serving cinema and elevating the standard of Indian films. His Devdas is an example of his great understanding and love of filmmaking. It is a rare film that has everything just right - the visual experience, the performance, the music, the photography, an atmosphere seeped in quiet unease, and above all, a masterful screenplay and memorable dialogue with depth and meaning. Reading Rajinder Singh Bedi's dialogue is a pleasure in itself and allows us to enter the interiority of its characters and discover the mind of Devdas. A deeper familiarity with the text will undoubtedly provide a fresh understanding of a first-rate film, and in addition give insight into the most melancholic character of Indian cinema."
