Here comes the first official teaser of ‘Devi’. Directed by Rick Basu, the film starring Paoli Dam in the lead role is a modern interpretation of classic novel ‘Devdas’ written by Saratchnadra Charttopadhyay in 1917.
According to the director, the film deconstructs Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s classic, Devdas, and gives it a female perspective.”The genders of the main characters have been reversed and the story is based in the 21st century . Some changes have been made, as society has changed a lot and men women relationships have evolved,” Rick said.

Paoli Dam starrer ‘Devi’ does the gender blender to bring a new aspect to the same storyline. “Devi asks society how it would react if a woman wasted her life over her love for a man. It also tries to unravel how the man in question would react to it. This we do by reversing the gender of Devdas”, said Rick Basu, the director of the film.
