- Les Yay - Chandramukhi and Paro's closeness and (at times) tension with one another in Bhansali's version (in other versions, including the book, they never even speak to each other). Kalibabu - a suitor of Chandramukhi's whom she constantly snubs - even says something like: "Landlords did keep whores, now even a lady of the manor [Paro] makes friendship in brothels!"
- Also in Bhansali's version, when first meeting Paro, Chandramukhi kneels to touch her feet and then... makes the "fill the parting of my hair with powder" gesture. Same gesture can sometimes be seen in Indian films between spouses or heterosexual lovers, as the red sindoor powder in the parting of the bride's hair is one of the 16 traditional ornaments of a Hindu bride.
- It Was His Sled - Everyone knows how this story ends just like everyone knows how the The Sixth Sense ended.
- Woobie - Should clearly be renamed Devdas. Just look at him.
- What an Idiot! - Devdas. If he just stood up to his father, then Paro would not have been married to another.
- One True Pairing - There are viewers that felt Chandramukhi and Paro would have made a much better couple.
YMMV / Devdas
