Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra”s legacy has been to make unconventional and unique cinema. The stories of his films are a good example of the same. Daas Dev, his next offering is yet another example of his unconventional voice. After releasing the first look poster on Friday, the filmmaker brings his unconventional touch to the fore yet again by furthering the Daas Dev Campaign with the Music Launch of the film tomorrow at Ultra Indian Derby 2018 at Mahalaxmi Racecourse in Mumbai even before releasing the trailer of the film as is the conventional norm. The film music rights have been acquired by Zee Music.
Sudhir Mishra said, “The music plays an integral part in my film. I love song and music and proudly used the relevant genres in my films. Daas Dev has some very amazing tracks. I have five music Composer in the film, there are two songs composed by Sandesh Shandliya sung by Rekha Bharadwajand Papon, two songs by Vipin Patwa which are sung by Atif Aslam and Javed Bashir, one song by Shamir Tandon sung by Papon and Krishna Beura and there is a new composer Anupama Raag and lyricist Gaurav Solanki whose song is sung by one of my favourite person whom I love and who began with me Swanand Kirkire. Also, there is a song by Arko sung by himself and Navraj Hans. The album is amazing and I am so grateful to all of them. They all have done a wonderful job. So, the music is so strong that we felt that it should be announced first and also because, though in my previous films I had very successful music, but there is some people that suill that I am anti music so with this film I am intent to change this perception”.
The film stars Richa Chadha as Paro, Aditi Rao Hydari as Chandni and Rahul Bhat as Dev. The film also features power packed performances from Vineet Singh, Saurabh Shukla and Vipin Sharma. Anurag Kashyap will be seen in a guest appearance in the film. Directed by Sudhir Mishra, presented by Storm Pictures and produced by Saptarishi Cinevision Production. Daas Dev is set to release on 9th March 2018.
The film follows a path contrary to the plot of the classic novel Devdas. But is a fiercely political film that talks about the protagonist’s addiction. Themovie’s premise is novel in a way that it is a reverse story of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s Devdas dipped in Shakespearean influences. If Devdas was a journey from a noble person to a ‘Das’, this is a journey from ‘Das’, a person who is a slave to his addictions and to the dynastic ambitions of his family to ‘Dev’. Set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh, ‘Daas Dev’ is a film about power, love and addiction.
