There are a few films in Hindi cinema that reach a cult-ish as Devdas. Sure, we had Andaz Apna, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum and Mughal-e-Azam but, they didn’t make audiences feel feelings the way Devdas did. The magnum opus starring Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai is still one of the most quotable films of our times.
