Daas Dev (2018)
Critic Reviews for Daas Dev
Daas Dev is meant to be a study of power and what happens to those who lust for it. It's a solid idea lost in execution.
Watch the film if you want to see a different version of Devdas, as also for the sly digs that Sudhir Mishra takes at dynastic politics.
Despite its grand claims of reinvention, Daas Dev is unable to make us cheer on Dev as he fights his tendency to self-destruct.
As Dev, Bhatt is laboured and awkward. Richa Chadha's forced dialogue delivery is cringeworthy and even though Hydari does a good job as the soft-spoken seductress, she is saddled with some of the film's corniest lines.
What works is Mishra's attempt at turning the classic on its head by giving the leads far more agency than in the earlier versions of the films that have been attempted by other filmmakers.
