New Byomkesh Bakshi Film Sajarur Kanta Poster Unveiled

The unveiling of Byomkesh Bakshi’s new avatar in Mac Neil Media’s Upcoming Bengali Film Sajarur Kanta took place in the presence of Dhritiman Chatterjee, Pradeep Mukherjee, Sonali Gupta, Kanchana Moitra, producer Pradip Churiwal and director Saibal Mitra.


“The film is set in contemporary 2014, and there will be the use of mobile phones and BMW cars too. This mystery revolving around Byomkesh Bakshi is set in the later stages of his life. This is the reason why I have selected mature and experienced actors like Dhritiman Chatterjee and Pradip Mukherjee as the lead actors in my film” said director Saibal Mitra.

Saibal Mitra also added that the director making films on mysteries like Byomkesh Bakshi have also to take care of the finer technical aspects too. “For instance the piercing of the heart with the Sajarur Kanta is not possible. I had to think of a more practical aspect so that the audience does not feel that this is merely a figment of the imagination” said the director.


Dhritiman Chatterjee who essays the role of the aged Byomkesh Bakshi in the film said with a smile “The actors who have played the role of the sleuth before better watch out. We are coming and that too with a bang”.

Director Saibal Mitra also opined that the subtle pauses and the looks which used to define acting in the yester ears have now been replaced by too many dialogues in the latest films. “I have tried to bring back those subtle actions in the film and hopefully the audiences will appreciate the changes” added the director.


Ensemble acting which has been brought back with this film will appeal to the tastes of the audiences. “The ensemble cast which had been revived in this film was not present in such a great way in some of the latest releases on Byomkesh Bakshi” added actor Dhritiman Chatterjee.


Produced by Macneill Media Pvt Ltd, the film Sajarur Kanta is being presented by Pradip Churiwal and Saikat Mitra. Konkona Sen Sharma, Indraneil Sengupta, Kaushik Sen, Biswajit Chakraborty, Debdut Ghosh will be seen in pivotal roles in the soon to release film.
