The first motion poster of director Dibakar Banerjee’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! features daring detective Byomkesh Bakshy played by Sushant Singh Rajput, in war torn Kolkata of 1942-43. The motion poster features dhoti-clad Sushant against the backdrop of Kolkata’s iconic Howrah Bridge in his stint to save the city from Japanese invasion.
The poster shows the city being bombed by Japanese choppers and a young detective trying to do his duty with full conviction.
The motion poster of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! was released on the night of December 20, which is symbolic of the night of December 20 in 1942 when Calcutta (now Kolkata), the Second City of the British Empire (which was at war with the three Axis Powers: Germany, Italy and Japan) was bombed by Japan.
