Devdas sinks into an abyss of depression and takes to alcohol. In time, he meets a golden-hearted prostitute Chadramukhi (Madhuri Dixit), who loves him but he is unable to love her back. Bhansali’s film is also popular to this day, thanks to its elaborate sets, rich decor, lavish costumes and haunting music.
