Scale of Dasdev is huge says Sudhir Mishra

Noted filmmaker and writer #SudhirMishra attended promotional press conference of his upcoming film #Dasdev on Saturday in Mumbai. Sudhir Mishra is always known for his mid-budget or low budget films but he thinks that his upcoming film ‘Dasdev’ is made on a huge scale.

When asked Mishra about comparison being made between ‘Dasdev’ and earlier versions of ‘Devdas’, to that, he said, “I feel audience shouldn’t compare ‘Dasdev’ with earlier versions of ‘Devdas’. It’s an engrossing and gripping story which also has elements of thriller. Each actor of the film has performed brilliantly and the scale of this film is huge. I think we give so much of importance to love in our life so in this film you will be able to see if true love is possible in today’s times and if it is then how ? so, I hope audience will like the film and if they do then they should recommend it their family and friends”

Talking about his upcoming film ‘Dasdev’, Mishra said, “’Dasdev’ a reverse journey of ‘Devdas’. In ‘Devdas’, Devdas becomes victim of his habits and greed and in the end he is of no use who dies in front of door of Paro, so in today’s time, what is meaning of that love that is what ‘Dasdev’ is all about. Earlier the films made on “Devdas,’ they have shown journey from ‘Dev to Das’ but in our film we have shown journey from ‘Das to Dev’. It about how he finds aim of his life and how he struggle with difficulties. In this film, Paro and Chandni (Chandramukhi) are not the characters who are dying in their house remembering his love. This film is connected with political happenings in our country where women handle politician’s money which you often see in political circles and men as well. Chandini (Chandramukhi) is in love with Devdas but she is in control of her life and controls everything around her. You will see story of Paro and Devdas from the view point of Chandni (Chandramukhi) but in the second half of the film she stands against Devdas so audience will be able to see all this in film.”

Raktdhar first Bollywood film showing a transgender’s death rituals

India is the only country where the tradition of eunuchs is prevalent today. There are about 1 million of them, though their role in life has changed drastically from that of royal servants, confidantes, and friends. Eunuchs, or hijras as they are called here, have become something to be feared.

There have been myths and very few people know about the death procedures of transgenders. When a eunuch dies, his death rally is carried out in the night and no one else other than their community is allowed to see the procedure. It is believed that their funeral ceremony is sober. 

This mystery will be solved by the first Bollywood film, starring Shakti Kapoor to ever show a transgender’s death scene. Raktdhar’s base is about a rape case of Shakti Kapoor transgender's friend and the awful treatment they are given by the officials which leads to his death.  The film will also feature the truth of how awfully they are treated and what challenges they have to go through regularly.

Film’s trailer gives a glimpse into the story about love, political revenge and Shakti’s  struggle in society and the world of politics as he fights to take control and help his community.  The film casts Mukesh Rishi, Shahbaaz Khan, Ehsaan Khan, Deepsikha Naagpal, Manish Khanna and Archita Banerjee.
