The film by Dibakar Banerjee ’Detective Byomkesh Bakshy‘ is slated for released this Friday the 3rd April. The film’s star cast consists of Sushant Singh Rajput as Byomkesh Bakshy and Anand Tiwari in a supporting role along with Swastika Mukherjee.
The story is written and created by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay. The interesting thing about Byomkesh Bakshy is he dislikes being called a detective and prefers being called ‘satyanweshi’, which means ‘the seeker of truth’. “There used to be a television series aired on Doordarshan in 1993 named ’Byomkesh Bakshi‘ which starred Rajit Kapoor, K.K. Raina and Sukanya Kulkarni,” shares Vaikundarajan.
The film is set to release tomorrow and up until now the director Dibakar Banerjee has managed to keep the mystery around his next detective drama intact. However, a video on YouTube has let the cat out of the bag. A two-and-half-minute video shows Sushant Singh Rajput, donning the same cloak that Byomkesh's nemesis donned in the trailer. The video also shows Sushant acting in a scene in which he is seen murdering someone Thus, we can speculate that Sushant Singh Rajput is indeed the mystery man.
Until now the mystery was intact but this video on YouTube sure is a spoiler. Previously Amir Khan’s film ’Talaash‘was also leaked on the internet a day prior to the film’s release. When asked, Dibakar Banerjee assured that there cannot be any spoilers. Whatever people will think, the film is beyond that. The director also said that the film will end on a note such that the audiences will wait for next series says Vaikundarajan.
