Daas Dev is yet another adaption of the famous Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay novel ‘ Devdas’. It also derives inspiration from Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ as well. Sudhir Mishra has directed the film with a similar concept of his previous film ‘HazaaronKhwaisheinAisi’.

Plot

Daas dev is a story of Uttar Pradesh, Dev Chauhan ( Rahul Bhat) is next in line for the throne and his uncle Awdhesh wants to keep running the dynastic game. Dev, however, is in love with his childhood sweetheart Paro (RichaChhada) who hails from the rival party. On the other hand, his family is strategizing his arrival in the political field whereas Paro prioritizes her pride over her love. Chandni (Aditi Rao Hydri) is the other woman, she's in love with Dev in spite of the truth that her love would remain unfulfilled. What follows is are the circumstances and troubles that put each one of them at the test when the antagonist, the man behind the throne (Saurabh Shukla).

Analysis

Daas dev is a great amalgamation of the two very famous and elite novels Devdas and Hamlet. The story follows the dynamics of a political party in the event of transition of power. The story takes a twenty-year leap and introduces the male protagonist. We then find out about his love affair with Paro and then the story takes a long tour in the political world. The story does not, however, shed the much-needed light on the love equations of the three youthful stars that you are rooting for any of them, and concentrates more on the political events and plots. Due to lack of management between scenes, the characters are loosely etched character graphs and there is no tension involved. The character Awdesh’s arc is more prominent and promising than that of the leads. All the potential of the ensemble of the cast is left unused. The characters are realistic as all them have an edge and are not entirely white or black. The screenplay by Sudhir Mishra and Jaydeep Sakar could have been better.

Star Performances

The actors have done their best, however, we find Bhat a little out of character here and there. The supporting cast, however, saves the show. The ladies have done what they know best especially Aditi Rao Hydri.

What’s There? 

  • Daas dev is a recreation of Devdas with a political twist.
  • The characters are interesting and the antagonist is what steals the show.

What’s Not There?

  • For starters, there is no innovation with the script.
  • The characters are not built to their optimum potential and are left incomplete thus losing connectivity with the audience.
  • The music is average

Verdict

The movie is average. It fails to recreate the grandeur and raunchy feeling of the plans and plots that occur in a political world.
