The music of Sudhir Mishra’s next political thriller DAAS DEV was launched yesterday in a grand event at Ultra Indian Derby at Mahalaxmi Racecourse. The music of the film is acquired by Zee Music. The album has marvelous 7 songs in total composed by five Music Directors.
The event witnessed music director Shamir Tandon, Arko and Vipin Patwa performing live along with singers Navraj Hans, Swanand Kirkire, Shardha Mishra. On the occasion, director Sudhir Mishra introduced the cast and crew of the film- Richa Chadha, Rahul Bhat, Saurabh Shukla, Vipin Sharma, Dilip Tahil and Deep Raj Rana. Actress Huma Qureshi was also present to support the film.
DAAS DEV stars Richa Chadha as Paro, Aditi Rao Hydari as Chandni and Rahul Bhat as Dev. The film also features power packed performances from Vineet Singh, Saurabh Shukla and Vipin Sharma. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap will be seen in a guest appearance in the film.
The film follows a path contrary to the plot of classic novel DEVDAS and is a fiercely political film that talks about the protagonist’s addiction. The movie’s premise is novel in a way that it is a reverse story of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s DEVDAS dipped in Shakespearean influences. If DEVDAS was 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 to the dynastic ambitions of his family to ‘Dev’. Set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh, DAAS DEV is a film about power, love and addiction.
