Daas Dev trailer: Sudhir Mishra's retelling of Devdas involves dynamics of power and manipulation

The trailer of Sudhir Mishra's Daas Dev transports the viewers into yet another world that retells the classic story of Sarat Chandra Chatterjee's Devdas. However, Mishra's version is neither as glossy as that of Sanjay Leela Bhansali nor as dark as Anurag Kashyap's Dev D.

Daas Dev stands out purely because of a new ingredient introduced in the latest retelling. Power and the various equations dominate Mishra's world and all the characters seem to revolve around it. The central character, played by Rahul Bhat, is not a slave or daas to alcohol and incomplete love. Paro, played by Richa Chadha, is not the abla nari and is rather keen on a second marriage. And Chandni (Mishra's version of Chandramukhi), played by Aditi Rao Hydari, comes closest to the original character though she has complexities of her own.

Add to these a myriad range of other characters and an impressive line-up of actors including Vineet Kumar Singh, who impressed the viewers with his knockout breakthrough in Kashyap's Mukkabaaz last month. The filmmaker is also a part of the star cast though he cannot be spotted in the trailer.

Daas Dev is produced by  Sanjeev Kumar and Saptarishi Cinevision. It is slated to release on 23 March, along with Sidharth P Malhotra's Hitcki.
