Devdas is a popular Bollywood movie released in 2002 starring Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Madhuri Dixit. The movie is a romantic drama adapted from the novel with the same name written by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The plot of the movie revolves around Devdas, a wealthy man born into a rich family who falls in love with his childhood friend Paro. However, due to societal norms and class differences, their love remains unfulfilled, and Devdas descends into alcoholism and self-destruction.

The movie begins with Devdas (played by Shah Rukh Khan) returning to India after studying in London. He is excited to reunite with his childhood friend Paro (played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), whom he has not seen for years. Paro is a beautiful and intelligent girl from a lower-class family who is also excited to see him again. However, their reunion is short-lived as Paro's mother is against their friendship and wants to marry her off to a more affluent man. Despite the odds, Devdas and Paro promise each other that they will always be together.

Devdas, with a broken heart, leaves his village and goes to Kolkata, where he meets a courtesan named Chandramukhi (played by Madhuri Dixit). Chandramukhi is a famous courtesan who falls in love with Devdas, but he is too consumed with his love for Paro. Devdas tries to forget Paro by drinking and indulging in self-pity, but his love for her remains undiminished. Meanwhile, Paro gets married to a rich landowner who is abusive towards her. Devdas, after hearing about her plight, returns to his village to claim her but finds out that it is too late as Paro's husband would not let her go.

Devdas sorrowfully accepts his fate and starts living with Chandramukhi. His self-destructive behavior continues as he indulges in alcohol and gambling. Chandramukhi tries to persuade Devdas to forget his past and move on, but he remains devoted to his love for Paro. The story reaches its climax as Devdas falls ill due to excessive drinking and realizes that his death is imminent. He decides to make amends with Paro and go to her once more to make peace with her before he dies.

The movie features stunning performances by the lead cast, with Shah Rukh Khan delivering a memorable performance as Devdas, showcasing his talent for drama and romance. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is also commendable in her role as Paro, portraying her innocence and beauty flawlessly.
