Richa Chadha was recently seen in Fukrey returns. And the movie went on to become a huge Bollywood success and her role as Bholi Punjaban was also quite appreciated in the movie. And thus Richa is still basking in the glory of success of her last movie. Whereas Aditi Rao Hydari was also last seen in Bhumi and the movie earned good critical response. And now both these phenomenal actors have joined hands and will be next seen in Daasdev. Along with these two beauties we will also see Rahul Bhatt in the lead male role. Daasdev is based on the classic novel Devdas and this will be the modern take on Devdas.
Devdas is one of the classic novels of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay and many movies have been made based on this timeless piece of writing. In 1955 first bollywood movie was based on this novel where we saw veteran actors Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala playing the lead roles in the movie. The movie was directed by none other than Bimal Roy. Again in 2002 Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in one of the most beautiful movie of that year. And now again Devdas is being brought into the silver screen. And this time by none other than critically acclaimed actor Sudhir Mishra. Sudhir Mishra has earlier given super hit films like Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Yeh Saali Zindagi and Khoya Khoya Chand. And thus it is expected that this latest movie by Sudhir Mishra will also be a treat to watch.
The lead cast of the movie including Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Rahul Bhatt has already began to shoot for the movie. The movie is said to be set in the backdrop of a political angle and it is said to be a battle between politics and love. When further asked about the movie Sudhir Mishra said “I think it’s my right to use any work, everything is my heritage, so I can play with it as long as I admit it. I admit that I took Devdas, I took the three characters Dev, Paro, and Chandramukhi. As I was working, Shakespeare intruded and I allowed him to, what could I do? Ultimately it became a film about power as it gets into the way of love,”. He further adds “I think it’s my right to use any work, everything is my heritage, so I can play with it as long as I admit it. I admit that I took Devdas, I took the three characters Dev, Paro, and Chandramukhi. As I was working, Shakespeare intruded and I allowed him to, what could I do? “Ultimately it became a film about power as it gets into the way of love. It became a reverse journey because if Devdas is 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 the dynastic ambitions of his family, to Dev,”.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also shared the first look of the movie and he said “The film is set against the backdrop of politics”. The movie is said to be based on Rahul Bhatt who experiences some failure in his political career and thus he gets into drugs and alcohol and then Paro aka Aditi and Chandramukhi Aka Richa enters his life. And this forms the part of the story. The movie is all set to hit the theatres on February 16, 2018. And I think audience will be quite excited to watch the movie.
