Director Dibakar Banerjee’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is all set to wrap up this week. The look and setting of the film was successfully kept under wraps for a long time and the team shot major portions of the film in and around Kolkata without any trouble. Over the last four days of the shoot, the crew filmed several crucial scenes, while making sure that the local media and tourism promoters don’t click photographs and leak them. Although the film has wrapped up, it requires extensive post production work, due to which the release date of the film has been finalised as February 13 2015. As the film is set in the 1940s, the set up will showcase the lifestyle of the people who were living during the turbulent times of World War II. Additionally, a lot of VFX will be used to reflect the old world charm and a source confessed that the use of animation will be out-of-the-box; a lot along the lines of Dhoom 3. Vandana Kataria has designed the sets.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Anand Tiwari, Swastika Mukherjee and Divya Menon in the lead.
