Kolkata, 7th July 2021: hoichoi released the trailer of their upcoming murder-mystery series ‘Murder in the Hills’ on Wednesday at a press conference held at a prominent Darjeeling based location in Kolkata.

Set in the backdrop of Darjeeling, the story revolves around the suspicious death of a Bengali film star of the 90s unravelling the seedy underbelly of towns’ pasts. The trailer reveals director Anjan Dutt in a paramount role in the series. ‘Murder In the Hills’ also marks his directorial debut in the digital space.
The Queen of Hills, Darjeeling, has always played a pivotal role in most of Dutt’s work; for this series, Dutt has shot and set the story in Darjeeling and presented it darkly and mystically.
