Byomkesh Bakshy: Sushant Singh Rajput
Rude. Arrogant. Charming. Genius. Byomkesh Bakshy is a man everyone loves to hate. A habitual non-conformist, Byomkesh is forever trying to make sense of the world around him. He cares for nothing else but truth; once found and he loses interest. It is the pursuit, the hunt which interests him.

Byomkesh has almost photographic memory, and does not let go of a mystery until he has solved it for himself. Currently obsessed with his first case - the disappearance of a genius chemist.

He is short of two things in life - friends & love. While working on the case, Byomkesh becomes friends with Ajit Bannerjee, and their friendship grows to be legendary. The other lacunae in his life, love, is fulfilled by Satyawati, a woman who is an equal match to him in intelligence, character & strength.

Ajit Banerjee: Anand Tiwari
Pursuing MA in Bangla Literature from Vidyasadan College. An aspiring writer, and a body-builder by hobby. Son of the genius chemist Bhuban Banerjee, who has suddenly gone missing.

Satyawati: Divya Menon
The sister of Sukumar and niece to Gajanan Sikdar. The only one in the house who can stop uncle & nephew from jumping at each other's throats. She is young, quiet, demure - yet one can clearly see her sharp intelligence and strong will.

Anguri Devi: Swastika Mukherjee
Heartthrob of Bengal. Her films fan riots on the opening weekend. When she sheds on tear on screen, rivers flow on the street. When she dies, her fans slit their wrists. When she sings, hearts break.

Her face launches everything from beauty soaps to diamond jewellery. Her politically connected lover Gajanan Sikdar backs her with influence and money. Yet why do they say that she does tragic roles best?

Story in detail:

Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the film is set in the Second World War torn Calcutta during the 1940s and follows the first adventure of Byomkesh Bakshy, fresh out of college, as he pits himself against an evil genius who is out to destroy the world.

Using his wits against the most villainous arch criminal the world has seen, in a world of murder, international political intrigue and seduction, Byomkesh depends more on his intuition and instinct rather than concrete proof, to solve the case, sometimes overstepping the law if needed.
