People have thoroughly appreciated the show and had waited eagerly for the second and final part to release. hoichoi and the makers of the series were elated to announce on Tuesday that Damayanti was one among the most watched show of the platform during Pujas.
Directed by Aritra Sen and Rohan Ghosh and featuring Tuhina Das as the lead, alongside Indrashish Ray, Shoumo Banerjee, Chandreyee Ghosh and Amrita Chattopadhyay, Damayanti is hoichoi’s first female detective franchise. ‘Damayanti’ is the story of a bright, young professor of History who has a curious mind and a knack for solving mysteries. While spending a holiday with her husband (played by the very-talented Indrashish) in Bolpur, Damayanti gets herself involved with the police in solving a case. She is portrayed to be a character who is independent, smart, energetic and is capable of solving crimes with her phenomenally sharp intuition and deductive skills. In this endeavor she is often aided by her husband Samaresh and his police friend, Siben Sen. The series is based on Manoj Sen’s famous writing “Rohoshyo Shondhani Damayanti”. And among the other successful detective franchise like Byomkesh, Feluda, Eken Babu or Goyenda Gogol; Damayanti has definitely stood upright and made its way through the minds of the Bengali audience. With a tight characterization and suspenseful mysteries, the web series have kept the viewers on their edges thereby receiving overwhelming positive feedback from the audience.
Excited about the success of a female detective franchise, Damayanti producer Paramabrata Chattopadhyay said: “I hope the hoichoi audience got to experience and cherish the adventures of a never-seen-before inspiring and aspiring female detective through Damayanti. Over the period of time, Bengalis have witnessed the stories of many well-known male detectives including Feluda, Byomkesh and Kakababu, but now, seeing a woman solving crimes with her extraordinary intelligence will turn out to be exciting. The character of Damayanti possesses so much strength that people will remember her in the list of eminent Bengali detectives. Both Aritra and Rohan have done wonderful jobs in making the series and efficiently showcasing the skills of a female detective to the people. I would like to thank the viewers for showering so much love and appreciation on Damayanti and making the series a successful one.”
