This famous Hindi film based on an early-20th century novel is named for the male character of Devdas, but its plot and meaning develop almost solely through the actions of numerous named female characters (Sumitra, Parvati, Badima, Kaushalya, Chandramukhi, Kumud, Manorama...) who have countless conversations with each other about the friendships and loyalties between them; the nature of love, lust, and marriage in general; the revenge they want, or forgiveness they can give for those who betray them. As the film's title star Shahrukh Khan himself has said, this film is about the women in it; it's not about Devdas.
