sanjay leela bhansalli's movie devdas

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 2002 film "Devdas" is the only Indian film to feature in Time magazine's list of the millenium's 10 greatest movies, and the filmmaker says the honour couldn't have been better timed.

"The news couldn't have come at a better time as 'Devdas' completes 10 momentous years. It is a very proud and happy moment for me," Bhansali told reporters here.

"Devdas", inspired by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay's 1901 novel, featured Shah Rukh Khan as Devdas, ishwarya Rai Bachchan as Paro and Madhuri Dixit as Chandramukhi in key roles.

The film took the eighth spot on Time magazine's list, topped by "WAll.E". The list includes films like "Avatar", "The Hurt locker" and "Moulin Rouge!", with "The Artist" taking the last spot.

Bhansali says it's an achievement for the Hindi film industry.

"For a mainstream Hindi film like 'Devdas', to gain such a cinematic recognition and be a part of such an illustrious list is an honour, not just for me but for Indian film industry at large," he added.

Time describes Shah Rukh as an "all-world charismatist" and Madhuri as "a hot number who had danced flamenco on men's libidos for a decade or so before appearing in this worldly-wise role" of a prostitute.

Looks to me that SLB forgot how to make good movies after this one..still can't believe that he made Saawariya, esp when it was debut for 2 future rockstars.

I wonder what the other movies are in the list apart from the ones mentioned? Why Wall E? And why Moulin Rouge? Weird choices! Devdas was certainly a visual treat, such splendor and lavish production! Its funny how they described Madhuri, not very flattering!
