letter from the editor keeping it short

reddy steady shoot!

Born and brought up in a family of farmers from Guntur, a small town in Andhra Pradesh, young Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti was inexplicably drawn towards cinema “I was interested in cinema right from childhood. I used to watch all Telugu films. I wanted to do something creative, not a nine to five job,” he says. He’s glad that his family agreed to let him pursue his passion. After his Bachelor’s degree in photography in Hyderabad, Sudhakar started assisting some directors in Telugu films. Later, he joined the FTII, Pune in 2000. “I had interest in direction and writing. But my main passion was cinematography. When you see a film on screen, you see visuals. You tell a story through visuals,” he says. PC Sriram, Santosh Sivan and Rajeev Menon are the…

Release date: March 2, 2018 Director: Sudhir Mishra Banner: Storm Pictures Producers: Saptarishi Cinevision Production Music: Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Vipin Patwa, Sandesh Shandilya, Shamir Tandon Cast: Richa Chadha, Rahul Bhat,Aditi Rao Hydari, Vineet Kumar Singh,Anurag Kashyap The Plot Set in modern times, Sudhir Mishra’s DaasDev is a flip version of the classic tale, Devdas, penned by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee. This is set amidst the politically volatile atmosphere of Uttar Pradesh. The romantic thriller is about power struggle as it gets in the way of love. But while Devdas is about personal disintegration, this is about redemption. In Sudhir Mishra’s interpretation, Paro (Richa Chadha) is a strong woman, who takes on Dev (Rahul Bhat) through politics. While Chandni (Aditi Rao Hydari) is as close to Chandramukhi in her love for Dev.…
