Ashvin Gidwani’s Devdas – The Musical is a 100-minute multi-starrer that explores the saga of one of India’s most famous love stories in its first-ever on stage adaptation outside of India.
Watch this timeless tale come to life in an incredible Broadway-style production with elaborate set designs, vibrant colours, evocative lighting and special effects that recreate the opulence of India’s former capital, Calcutta, during the early 1900s, which acts as a spectacular backdrop for the musical, featuring unforgettable music, exhilarating choreography, and a heart-rending, universal story of two star-crossed lovers — all packaged together to create one of the most gorgeous theatre productions ever brought to life on stage.
The original story tells the tale of Devdas and Paro, childhood sweethearts who harbour intense feelings for each other. They are torn apart when Devdas is sent away to Bombay by his father, a local zamindar (landlord), to study law. Decades later when Devdas returns to his hometown, now a handsome lad, the love between Devdas and Paro remains strong — and Paro asks him to marry her.
Their dreams are short-lived as Devdas is forced to reject the proposal as Paro does not match the status of his family. Stunned by this ordeal, Paro agrees to marry an elderly widower. Devdas drowns himself in sorrow and seeks solace in the company of a glamorous courtesan, Chandramukhi. Is it now his destiny to hurtle relentlessly on the path of self-destruction? Or will the star-crossed lovers and soulmates find their way back to one another?
