Anirban Bhattacharya starrer Detective is headed for a direct-to-digital release on Hoichoi as a part of a“First Day First Show”  series of Bangla movie releases. 

It was originally slated for a theatrical release but owing to the current restrictions mandated by the government for audiences to maintain a decorum of social distancing, and movie theatres abiding the same by keeping the doors of their single screens and multiplexes closed, SVF, Eastern India’s largest entertainment house, have consciously decided to take a digital route. 

Directed by Joydeep Mukherjee, Detective, is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s story. The titular character of the Detective is being played by versatile Anirban Bhattacharya, who in the past year has impressed the audience with his choice of roles and their portrayal on screen. 

Co-Founder and Director, SVF, Mahendra Soni, said: “We are excited that the film is getting a digital release and becomes the first Bengali feature to get a World Premiere on Hoichoi. Although, we had planned to have a big theatrical release, the sudden pandemic compelled us to take the digital route.”

Vishnu Mohta, Co-Founder of Hoichoi added: ”With Hoichoi Presents First Day First Show  we are happy to exclusively premiere one of the most anticipated films of the year starring the famous Anirban Bhattacharya. We are always looking out to embrace good content and Detective, as a film, will bring all our audiences, globally, to step up and celebrate the film along with the celebration of our Independence.”

Slated to release on August 14, Detective stars Anirban as Mahimchandra, a police-detective, who aspires to earn fame in his profession. Mahimchandra’s first love is his detective books (primarily, Sherlock Holmes) and second, is his wife Shudhamukhi portrayed by Ishaa Saha. Obsessed with finding a complicated case, Mahimchandra encounters Manmoth essayed by Shaheb Bhattacherjee. He devotes his energy towards unravelling the youth's secret leading to complications in his own life. Mahimchandra’s “Watson” is Hutashon (Ambarish Bhattacharya), who though idolises his detective sir, gets fed up because of his continuous obsession over trivial matters. Mahim also has a widowed sister, Snehalata (Trina Saha), who thinks her brother is a “good-for-nothing".
