Durga Puja’s sans a thrilling, pulsating movie is practically bland. Keeping this ‘mantra’ in mind and following the successful track record of all his recent Byomkesh flicks; director Arindam Sil have announced that the release of his next film on the legendary sleuth will be this Puja’s only.
Well, as the headlines suggest the forthcoming film will be having a fresh star cast though Abir Chatterjee as always will be playing the ‘titular’ role and ‘Satyabati’s character will be reprises by Sohini Sanyal only.
The main surprise lies with Byomkesh’s aide, ‘Ajit’s character! The role so long has been portrayed by Ritwick Chakroborty. But the upcoming movie will see Rahul Banerjee donning our very own Ajit’s hat.
Produced by Shree Venkatesh Films the movie will be based on Sarandindu Bandopadhyay’s ‘Rokter Daag’. Titled ‘Byomkesh Gotro’, the story is touted by many as the most appalling and complex of all the Byomkesh tales. The shooting of the movie which will commence this June is having an ensemble cast comprising Anjan Dutt, Harsh Chaya, Priyanka Sarkar, Arjun Chakraborty, Indrashish Roy, Anindita Bose, Joydip Kundu and the film maker himself.
