Releasing on April 20th, Daas Dev is Sudhir Mishra’s ode to Devdas. The modern day adaptation of the epic romantic drama has a background of rising power and politics touched down by love that is a reverse narrative from its original, laced with a confluence of Shakespear and Sarat Chandra Chattopahyay’s iconic novel.
Touted to be his magnum opus, Sudhir Mishra’s Daas Dev, embarks on the last lapse of its race to release. In an inventive move, the makers of Daas Dev have launched an extended look of their trailer, giving the audiences a closer look into the world of Daas Dev.
The new trailer raises the bar in its showcasing of the politically riddled world of Uttar Pradesh and the games of power, played within while making a powerful statement about how all else can be fixed but love.
A wheel within a wheel with consistent cogs in the system is the world in which Sudhir Mishra’s Dev, Paro and Chandni live. The new trailer takes us on a gritty journey giving us glimpses of the turbulence and the power play even within the ever present love story. With the new trailer, the makers seem to have peeled away another layer of the complex story set against the backdrop of the politically turbulent Uttar Pradesh. In a film said to be layered multi fold, it will be interesting to see what lies at the heart of Daas Dev when it releases.
