We also get to see the first look of Sohini Sarkar as Satyabati, Suhotra Mukhopadhyay as Ajit, Paoli as Sulochona, Anusha Viswanathan as Somaria, Arna Mukhopadhyay as Kochik, and Kinjal Nanda as Bishu Pal. Check out the teaser here:
‘Byomkesh Hatyamancha’ is based on Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s unfinished story Bishupal Bodh, and to develop the script, Arindam joined hands with his trusted friend Padmanava Dasgupta. Like many of Arindam’s films, Bickram Ghosh has been roped in to compose the music.
Arindam Sil’s previous three Byomkesh ‘Har Har Byomkesh’ (2015), ‘Byomkesh Pawrbo’ (2016) and ‘Byomkesh Gotro’ (2018) were huge hits and this time also the ace director believes the audience will shower their love on his fourth Byomkesh directorial.
The plot, set in the tumultuous Naxalite uprising in Bengal in 1971, sees Byomkesh Bakshi getting involved in a story of vengeance when he decides to attend a play at the theatre and becomes witness to a crime unfolding on the center stage. As Byomkesh Bakshi digs deep into the case, it opens him to a tripartite story of love, betrayal, and infidelity. How the mystery is laid bare for Byomkesh to solve forms the crux of the story.
‘Byomkesh Hatyamancha’ is set to release in theatres on August 11.
