Bollywood movie Dev D has made it to the prestigious Copenhagen Film Festival to be held from April 15-25.
The festival site describes it as “one of the best Bollywood films we have seen for years”. Shot in Chandigarh, London, Manali, and Delhi, this romantic drama is a modern day retake on Saratchandra’s classic novel Devdas, which has already been adapted into various films earlier. Its cast includes Abhay Deol, Mahie Gill, Kalki Koechlin, and Dibyendu Bhattacharya. Directed by Anurag Kashyap, its music is by Amit Trivedi, cinematography by Rajeev Ravi, and editing by Aarti Bajaj.
The festival (CPH PIX), “aims to bring people together to see good films from all over the world; original, thought-provoking, funny and controversial films that can't be found in regular cinema programmes”.
It will present about 170 feature films from around the globe this year. Jacob Neiiendam is Festival director.
