Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D (2009)

I love Anurag’s work. And he did so much within that story. The whole atmosphere of Punjab, Paro’s own sexuality, that iconic gadda scene (in which which Paro carries a mattress to the mustard fields for her and Dev to make love), which everybody talks about. I really like the way he adapted the Chandramukhi’s character as this lost girl, and Dev coming to terms with his own decadence and then standing up. It was interesting that at the end he found hope, which is unusual for an Anurag Kashyap film. And of course Emosanal Attyachar which had a kind of mockery of his lament.
