For the very first time in the film industry, a film’s trailer was launched in the most unique way that might be one of those conversations that enters our history.
Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra’s next Daas Dev’s trailer was launched by 20 top filmmakers of Hindi film industry in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Standing tall with these stalwarts was the cast of the film, actors Rahul Bhat, Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Dalip Tahil.
The trailer launch began with humble gesture of Sudhir Mishra, requesting all the guests to stand up in silence in the memory of filmmaker Late Mr. Kundan Shah. Mishra then called the ace filmmakers of Bollywood – Saeed Mirza, Rahul Ravel, Ketan Mehta, Prakash Jha, Satish Kaushik, Pankaj Parashar, Vishal Bhardwaj, Imtiaz Ali, Nikhil Advani, Umesh Shukla, Victor Acharya, Kunal Kohli, Anubhav Sinha, Abhishek Kapoor, Mudassar Aziz, Ruchi Narain, Avinash Das, Ashoke Pandit, Ashwini Choudhary, and Ajay Bahl on stage. It was interesting to see the top-notch directors talk about their long association with critically acclaimed filmmaker Sudhir Mishra over the years. They all spoke about how they find each other inspirational in their own form. One common thing everyone agreed on was that Sudhir is a very different kind of filmmaker, he twists and turns a simple thought into something very interesting and they love this about him and his films.
Joining this gang of talent on stage was the cast of the film Rahul Bhat, Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Dalip Tahil along with Producer Sanjeev Kumar of Saptarishi Cinevision and Presenter Gaurav Sharma of Storm Pictures.
Speaking about Daas Dev, Sudhir Mishra said:
“I acknowledge the fact that the three characters are Sarat Babu’s (Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay). However, when we started writing this film, somehow Shakespeare made his way in my mind and the story took a different turn. Also there is political angle in the film which brings Paro out of the haveli, Chandramukhi became a political fixer who is a game changer, and it is Dev’s reverse journey where he is coming out of his addition and taking control of his life. This is the plot of my film and a glimpse of that can be seen in the trailer.”
The film features power packed performances from Saurabh Shukla who plays a pivotal role, Vineet Singh and Vipin Sharma. Anurag Kashyap will be seen in a guest appearance in the film and. Directed by Sudhir Mishra, presented by Storm Pictures and produced by Saptarishi Cinevision. Daas Dev is set to release on 23rd March 2018.
