A still from the trailer

The trailer of Dasvi is out. The film stars Abhishek Bachchan as Ganga Ram Chaudhary, a gruff and corrupt politician who's arrested in an education scam. Wanting to reform himself, Ganga decides to clear his 10th exams, while leaving state affairs to his wife (Nimrat Kaur). A tough jailer, played by Yami Gautam, is incredulous of Ganga's plans, but he seems determined, against all odds, to prove her wrong.

Dasvi is written by Ritesh Shah and directed by Tushar Jalota. The film is reportedly inspired by the life of former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala (Abhishek's green turban bears this out). In 2017, Chautala, while lodged in Tihar jail for a recruitment scam, cleared his class 10 examination of the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS). He later cleared his class 12 of the Haryana Open School.

Dasvi is co-produced by Maddock Films and Jio Studios.

Talking about the trailer, producer Dinesh Vijan says, “The trailer is a sneak peek into the lovely world of Dasvi. Maddock has always backed content based cinema, and Dasvi is yet another attempt at providing a wholesome family watch that entertains and enlightens”.

On the performances of his lead stars, Dinesh adds, “Abhishek, Yami and Nimrat have knocked it out of the park. Audiences will fall in love with all three of them by the end.”

Director Tushar Jalota shares, “Ever since we conceived Dasvi, it was clear we have a unique film in hand, one that tickles people’s funny bones and makes them realise there is magic in knowledge. I can’t wait for audiences to witness this special tale”.

Dasvi will stream on Jio Cinema and Netflix from April 7.
