Daas Dev - Movie Reviews

The Sudhir Mishra-directed film must rank among the better screen adaptations of Devdas
This cycle of democracy, violence continues unabated though. As it would. Play it again, sham!
Mid-Day
Sarat Chandra Chatterjee's classic but simple love triangle of Paro, Devdas and Chandramukhi is turned on its head and complicated needlessly by setting the story in a lawless, political background in Uttar Pradesh. There are stories and backstories heaped one on top of another and finished off in a Tarantino-esque hail of bullets. When a dying character asks,'Why? Why did all this happen?' in despair, the audience shaking their heads in a similar fashion asks the same thing.

Devdas in reverse equals a film off the rails

Sudhir Mishra stands Devdas and Hamlet nicely on their heads but does not live up to his own promise
First Post
Dev Chauhan (Rahul Bhat) is the scion of a powerful political family who whiles away all his time in partying and indulging in alcohol. Paro (Richa Chadha), his childhood friend, is concerned about him and asks him to mend his ways after he lands himself in a big trouble

A messy cocktail of emotions and power games

A tepid lead triumvirate and chaotic narrative let down the latest version of ‘Devdas’

देवदास' की तरह रोमांटिक नहीं बल्कि राजनीतिक थ्रिलर है 'दास देव'
Bhaskar
The film has enough of Sarat Chandra Chatterjee and Shakespeare; it could have done with some vintage Sudhir Mishra, too.

Intriguing One-Time Watch With Too Many Plot Twists
The Quint
Sudhir Mishra takes us into the dreams and fears of our politicians, into their self-deceiving pitches, and he shows us their demons and angels
Rediff
Daas Dev' has its high points but in totality the film doesn’t grip you. For those who are expecting a film like 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi', one of Sudhir Mishra’s earlier films which artfully combined politics and love, this contemporary take on Devdas will leave you wanting for more.
