DaasDev follows a path contrary to the plot of the classic novel and is a romantic thriller film that talks about addiction to power, addiction to love that is explored through these 3 main characters. DaasDev is a film about power as it gets into the way of love.

Director's Note: I think it's my right to use any work, everything is my heritage, so I can play with it as long as I admit it. I admit that I took Devdas, I took the three characters Dev, Paro, and Chandramukhi. As I was working, Shakespeare intruded and I allowed him to, what could I do?

It is in a sense, love in the time of bullshit, power and insensitivity but it is still love because without that there would be nothing.
