  1.  Sharat Chandra ChattopadhyaySharat Chandra Chattopadhyay wrote the classic Devdas.

    As per Wikipedia “Devdas is a 1935 Bengali film directed by Pramathesh Barua and based on the Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay novella, Devdas. It stars Barua himself as Devdas and Jamuna Barua as Parvati (Paro) and Chandrabati Devi as Chandramukhi. Later this film released in another two languages. In 1936 in hindi and in 1938 in assamese. Sharat Chandra Chatterjee’s classic novel Devdas is about two lovers – Debdas and Parbati – who can never unite as mortals because of the class system in the society. Sharat Chandra Chaterjee is believed to be in his teens when he wrote Devdas in 1901. But it was published in 1917. This classic masterpiece sensitively criticizes the feudalistic society that prevailed. Devdas novel was made more than 7 times in different languages. Apparently Devdas was received with great enthusiasm in every generation and any changing trend. All Indian prints of this Bengali version were destroyed decades ago in a fire that ravaged New Theatre s studios. Currently, there is only one copy of the film which belongs to the Bangladesh Film Archives. And of that too almost 40 percent is destroyed.”
