Mumbai – MAX, the premium Hindi movies and special events channel brings to you a spine tingling thriller that will take you to a world of murky mystery with World Television premiere of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy on 30 and 31 May.

In his latest directorial venture, Director Dibakar Banerjee has brought together Sushant Singh Rajput in the role of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy along with Anand Tiwari, Swastika Mukherjee (debut) and Meiyang Chang to re-create the historical phase of uncertainty and chaos created by World War II.

The film is a contemporary interpretation of war-torn Calcutta of the early 1940s; a time when Japanese and Chinese smugglers were engaged in covert activities to seize the city from British control. The movie trails the first adventure of Byomkesh (Sushant Singh Rajput) as he pits himself against an evil genius who is out to destroy the world.
