Mumbai: Director Sudhir Mishra on Monday remembered Satyajit Ray on his 26th death anniversary. The “Yeh Saali Zindagi” helmer says that the legendary filmmaker was a master.
Sudhir Mishra’s Daas Dev is all set to hit the screens and Shubarna Mukerji Shu wants to know how he has married Sarat Chandra’s Devdas to Shakespeare’s Hamlet and turned it all into a political drama
Director Sudhir Mishra, who is awaiting the release of his project “Daas Dev”, says its story is unlike the original “Devdas” as it is more about freedom and liberation. Mishra, known for directing critically acclaimed films like “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi”, “Dharavi” and “Chameli”, has interpreted the concept of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s “Devdas”, which was interpreted for two film versions.
Filmmaker Sudhir Mishra says he does not want people to misunderstand his forthcoming film “Daas Dev” as a political drama. The film follows a path contrary to the plot of the classic novel “Devdas” and is set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh.
Which filmmakers do you personally find interesting?
I think Abhishek Chaubey is a very good director. UDTA PUNJAB rocked; very imaginative, popular and makes a point. I welcome the AIRLIFT director, Raja Menon. I think he has a very interesting sense of cinema. While it was about Akshay Kumar it was also about the whole ensemble. And the smaller narratives make up the main narrative; so many interesting stories. I liked a small Kannada film
Creator of such substantive and acclaimed films as Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Chameli and Yeh Saali Zindagi, Sudhir Mishra tells Nichola Pais that the industry needs to be nurtured, even as the walls between mainstream and indie cinema come down.
