Bollywood Night: Devdas

Last night, Triya cooked some delicious Indian food for several of us PhD students and gave us the treat of watching a Bollywood movie called Devdas. The movie was a tragic love story, masterfully choreographed with stunning videography. It was full of fantastic song and dance numbers that were all larger than life. The closest analogy I can think of is to some of the best musicals I've seen on Broadway.

Here is one of the scenes with the two heroines dancing together:

And here is montage of this and several other dance scenes from the movie:

Thanks to Triya for being such a wonderful hostess and for a time hanging out with friends!
