Day 4!  
Day 4 of the female character meme! I'm really enjoying this. :)

Day 4: Chandramukhi (Devdas)

Devdas is a Bollywood movie, and Chandramukhi is played by Madhuri Dixit (who I adore). She's a courtesan, but just an awesome character. Truth be told, I prefer her to Paro. I felt that Chandramukhi loved Devdas more, and I just wished throughout the film that he'd forget Paro and fall for her. I knew it was supposed to be a tragedy, but I felt so bad for her. She was kind, caring, and was really strong. No matter how much I love Shahrukh, she's my favorite character in the movie.

Oh man, you had to bust out the Devdas...and Chandramukh! <3
I couldn't help myself! She's one of my favorite Bollywood characters, and definitely my fav in the movie itself.

Love her and "Mar Daala" always gets to me. *sighs*
Totally! The songs in the movie were beautiful.

oooh how'd i miss this!! i loved her too. i like the scene w/ her and paro but i still haven't seen it w/ english subtitles LOL D:
At least you found it now? I agree that was a good scene. And aww, a lot of DVDs come with English subtitles so you can rent it?

but her story is soooo tragic : (((( at least paro married into that family w/ 'kids' and they seemed to like her etc
True. She had it tough. I feel badly for Paro too though, who got stuck in a marriage with a man who was way too old for her and still in love with his first wife. It can't be easy when the children are almost your age. It was all because of pride on the family's parents.

I own it, but I don't really have any interest in watching it again, lol.

I agree on Paro, but at least she ~held her ground w/ the guy and his mom, ie. when she didn't let them snuff out the metaphor~ candle she protected. I love that she gives her 'daughter' the choice to be her 'kid' or more equal. Very beautiful too when she gives the kid the necklace <3<3 What a tragic story D:
That's true. Paro had it much better than Chandramukhi. I heard the book was sadder though but it's written in Hindi so I can't confirm it.
