A new poster from the movie Daasdev has been released. The movie is an adaptation of the classic novel, Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay and portrays the love of Dev, for Paro and a prostitute Chandramukhi. The novel is an extremely famous work of fiction and has been subjected to many adaptations, most prominently by Sanjay leela Bhansali in 2002, which starred Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit and Shah Rukh Khan in the title role, and is considered to be the most iconic Indian film of last decade. Daasdev is directed by Sudhir Mishra and stars Rahul Bhat as Dev, Richa Chadha in the role of Paro and Aditi Rao Hyadri as Chandramukhi.
The trailer for the movie was released last week and was appreciated for its modern perspective that is going to throw a light on the Political climate of India. Sudhir Mishra has said that Daasdev is a reverse interpretation of the text, as in, it is about the journey of Dev from Daas, a slave or a person of low social standing to someone more important in the society.
Anurag Kashyap’s DevD is another modern adaptation of the novel and was acclaimed for its interpretation of the book. Daasdev certainly looks intriguing and could be another memorable entry in the canon of adaptations of the book. It also stars three very acclaimed and underrated stars, who could surely gain more fan following and critical praise for their performances in the movie.
Battle between passion & power. Presenting the brand new poster of #DaasDev.
