While reports were doing the rounds from day one that the detective in Dibakar’s film bears a striking resemblance to popular fictional detective Sherlock Holmes instead of the one authored by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, it seems the teaser has a different story to tell! Interestingly, the first teaser has an unintended reference to popular fictional detective on celluloid i.e. James Bond!  

Well, the teaser of DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY which just highlights the voice of the protagonist Sushant Singh Rajput has a line, where he introduces himself a la James Bond style - “Bakshy. Byomkesh Bakshy”. It reminds us of James Bond, who used to introduce himself with a flamboyance and poise - “Bond. James Bond”!
