Fortuitousness is a virtue which is a hallmark of the brave, and if viewed from this perspective DEV D is indeed a product which is a brave attempt in the time when the times are really tough. The chutzpah of Anurag Kashyap and Abhay Deol to interpret Devdas in modern context and to dare to present him in the backdrop of Sex and drugs is indeed the attempt to sail against the wind. Which filmmaker would have the courage and gumption to create a call centre in association with his film by promoting lust through the call centre?

DEV D did precisely that, and it also had the courage to distribute condoms along with the special invite of the film. If this is not emotional atyachar, what else is, and therefore emotional atyachar forms an interesting part of the film.

Who would think about interpreting emotion in such a manner, but in DEV D it has been conceptualized as an entity that has the ability to torture as well. Abhay Deol could only have the courage to do so, and therefore he has taken a sabbatical on the eve of release of his film and has gone to New York to study of all the things art of metallurgy.

Is it not an Atyachar on the actor as well, who deals in emotions to enter into the hard-core world of metals, thongs and hammers to learn the craft? This attempt however has an interesting simile, as the ability to be able to deal with metals in its most raw form is an attempt to be near the soul as has been propagated by our philosophers and thinkers. The fire of the urn and the heat that is generated in the process really cleanse the soul, and this is what Abhay Deol probably aspires to do.

Lust and Sex, which are the acceptable reality of the present times, was in a mode of denial in the Hindi films, and the emotions that were displayed in the movies were either of love, or of sense of loss. Not henceforth. After DEV D, more such attempts should be in offing to provide a reality shock to the viewers and make them accept the reality as it exists in the present times.
