Comparisons were bound to happen between Sushant Singh Rajput's upcoming Bollywood film DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY! & the television series of the Byomkesh Bakshy in which Rajit Kapoor played the title role.
When Rajit was playing the character of Byomkesh, he was loved by almost everyone and as it was a television series, it wasn't too glossy also still people enjoyed it and religiously watched it. When we asked Sushant if people will be able to connect with the film just the same way as they did with the TV series he said that if they are clear about their intent why not.
He said, “We need to understand why people got connected with that TV series. We always have this fascination of something that is slightly complex & how a person is very seasoned and his style of working solves it, but the process of is what fascinates us. So yes, why not, we are very clear about our intent as film makers and actors. Dibakar always seeks honesty in whatever we do as actors and just because the script is so fascinating, it's written in a very tight way and also there is a sense of abstractness in the film.”

He further elaborated, “And let me tell you, this Byomkesh Bakshy is not as seasoned as Rajit Kapoor was in the TV series because this is his first case; he is just fresh out of college. He is intelligent and he thinks because nobody is, he has this seduction for anything & everything that's intelligent. So he gets himself into this complex case and then what happens is going to be like how he transforms while solving the case. He is intelligent, but he is not seasoned. He still lacks those fundamental abilities which a very seasoned detective must have. It's like an amateur doing something and very gradually transforming into something.”
DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY! also stars Anand Tiwari, Swastika Mukherjee, Neeraj Kabi, Divya Menon & others. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, produced by Aditya Chopra & Dibakar the film is set to release on 3rd April, 2015.
