Samrat’s way of detection and his style and behavior are the highlights of the film. His character’s intelligence, presence of mind, sharpness and his little eccentricity will make him a loveable character amongst all.
Director Kaushik Ghatak says, ”I grew up fantasizing the world of Sherlock Holmes and always wanted to create one. This is not at all a ‘desi’ version of Holmes but our own unique detective hero. Though it’s a very different genre for Hindi cinema, people will identify with the subject. I believe, there is a detective hidden inside all of us, who is in search of some or the other truth. We always tend to draw conclusions about the situation or person around us from the things we see. And Samrat does it really well.’
