Trivia


 

    Album

  • This film was a modern interpretation of Saratchandra Chatterjee's classic novel "Devdas".
  • Director Anurag Kashyap thanked Danny Boyle in this film's opening credits for his idea of using a still camera he had used in "Slumdog Millionaire" (2008) to depict the drug-addled character of Dev.[1]
  • This was the first film signed by music director Amit Trivedi. He landed this job when singer Shilpa Rao introduced him to the film's director, Anurag Kashyap. The film's release was delayed and another film he had signed later, "Aamir" (2008), became his debut film. However, it was the music of this film that was his first big breakthrough and that got him noticed.[2][3]
  • Like Amit Trivedi, this was the first film lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya had signed as well, although "Aamir" (2008) had come out first. Amitabh had come to Mumbai with the ambition of becoming a singer and had ended up working with Amit Trivedi and his friend Amartya Rahut, who were composing ad jingles and music for TV serials at the time. The two composers would use Amitabh to sing their tunes and he also ended up writing lyrics for them. When "Dev.D" came along, Amit automatically picked Amitabh to write lyrics for his tunes before they could be presented to Anurag Kashyap.[4]
  • This was the debut film of actress Kalki Koechlin. She went on to date the film's director Anurag Kashyap. They got married in 2011 but got separated in 2013, and eventually got divorced in 2015.
  • This was the debut film of lyricist Shellee.

    Song

  • Emosanal Attyachar (Brass Band Version) - The inspiration for this song was triggered by another song from this film, "Pardesi". When Anurag Kashyap heard it the first time, he misheard the phrase "agge yaar" as "atyachar". He later realized his mistake but wanted to use the word "atyachar" in a song for this film. Still later, the idea of the phrase "emosanal atyachar" struck him, and he asked Amit Trivedi and Amitabh Bhattacharya to make a song using this phrase. Anurag also wanted to fulfill in this song, his long-standing desire to create the kind of song he had come across in the obscure 1988 film "Om Darbadar", that used the brass band common in North Indian celebrations.[5][6]
  • Emosanal Attyachar (Brass Band Version) - Bandmasters Rangila and Rasila credited in this song were really the lyricist and music director of the song, Amitabh Bhattacharya and Amit Trivedi. The real identity of Rangila and Rasila was kept a secret at the time of the film's release to generate curiosity about the song.[7]
  • Emosanal Attyachar (Brass Band Version) - Anurag Kashyap had originally wanted to shoot this song on music director Amit Trivedi and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. He had to change his plans because Amit and Amitabh were busy with the film "Aamir" (2008) at the time. He had then roped in his assistant director Vasan Bala, associate director Nitin Chainpuri and actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui to play the members of the band that sang this song in the film - "Patna Ke Presley". The name of the band was suggested by Vasan Bala.[8][9]
  • Yahi Meri Zindagi - This song was Aditi Singh Sharma's debut as a playback singer.[10]
