Release of “Daas Dev” postponed to April 27

Vastavam web: The release of “Daas Dev” has been pushed by a week and the Sudhir Mishra-directed film will now arrive in theatres on April 27.Starring Rahul Bhat, Richa Chadha and Aditi Rao Hydari, the film is a modern-day retelling of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s classic novel “Devdas”.A statement by banner, Saptarishi Cinevision Production, read that the team “voluntarily pushed/extended” the release date of the film to April 27 to avoid clash with films opening this week.

Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s first India-set film “Beyond The Clouds” and Abhay Deol-Patralekhaa-starrer “Nanu Ki Janu” are among films set to release this Friday.”With around four Bollywood films and few regional films releasing on April 20, the makers felt that they required a cleaner window to reach out to the audience. Keeping this in mind producers and the distribution team took a strategic call to push the film’s release by a week,” the statement read.Set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh, “Daas Dev” is a film about power, love and addiction. It will explore the reverse journey of Devdas – from a servant (das) to a god (dev).
