Devdas is a Bangladeshi Bengali romantic film based on the Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay novel Devdas. It is the second Bangladeshi and fifth Bengali version of the story. It was directed by Chashi Nazrul Islam, who also directed the 1982 version, and stars Shakib Khan as Devdas,[2] alongside Moushumi and Apu Biswas in the leading roles.

It was released on 15 February 2013 to positive response from critics, and a good opening at the box office.[3][4]



The soundtrack of the film composed by Imon Shah.


The movie was expected to be released in 2011, but due to Film Censor Board problems, it failed to do so. In December 2012, it got clearance from Bangladesh Film Censor Board after cutting some scenes about which the board showed concern considering public sentiment. Scenes portraying Chunilal character wearing 'coatee', usually worn on Punjabi or kurta in the Indian subcontinent, "looked like a Mujib coat" (a kind of black waist coat used by the country's founding president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman) to some members of the censor board and asked to cut those.[6]
