Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It does what the movies were meant to do: move, dance and swirl in the popular imagination."
‑ Patrick Z. McGavin, Chicago Tribune
"There's more to Devdas than extravagance; the emotion and passion of the story is felt just as strongly in every frame as the budget."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Pleasures don't come much guiltier than this."
‑ Kim Linekin, eye WEEKLY
"It's all vastly sumptuous, though the spectacle frequently overwhelms the dramatic impact."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The entire film has an overwhelming hugeness to it that's hard to resist."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Opulence rules. So does emotion. Pack a lunch and have an experience because Bollywood beckons."
‑ Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies
"Aishwarya Rai's natural beauty anchors the film's three best musical numbers, which balance out the slower and heavier melodramatic parts. All in all, a classy production."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"When a movie throws as much at you as Devdas does, it's easy to forgive minor disappointments."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"At over two and a half hours, the film's epic scale may not suit some Western viewers, but those willing to surrender themselves to the drama are in for a real treat."
‑ Laura Bushell,
