Yash Raj Films‘ roping in Dibakar Banerjee for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy may just be one of the best Bollywood decisions of 2015. The first teaser of the film is out and we are very impressed. The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role and we are really looking forward to him breathing life into this iconic character.
The teaser looks edgy and the background music (that sounds eerily familiar) compliments it rather well. We see a warring Calcutta of 1943 where the morning radio news is about the blasts. There’s chaos in the teaser and also glimpses of an unidentified mysterious woman, which has only left us more intrigued. Amidst all the action is our detective, who is going to be on a mission to restore peace in Calcutta by solving mysteries.
Sushant’s character in the film is straight out of college and the film documents his first ever adventure. Rajput has worked very hard for this film and has also undergone a complete change in look. Interestingly, his look is not revealed in the teaser but we hear his voice introducing him saying, “Bakshy, Byomkesh Bakshy…”
Sushant is known to be a good actor and he has gone on record to say how this is a role of a lifetime for him. Well, from the looks of it, we’d have to agree. While we await the full trailer of the film, check out the teaser here as it is bound to blow your mind.
Crazy, isn’t it? The teaser says #ExpectTheUnexpected and we are definitely game.
