Apart from them, the thriller also stars Barun Chanda and Alokananda Roy in key roles. Arijit Biswas, known for Andhadhun, has written the script while Bickram Ghosh has composed the music. Khela Jokhon is touted as a tribute to Quentin Tarantino. The film revolves around a woman who wakes up from a nightmare and is in conflict with what is real and what is an illusion. Amidst this confusion, she realises she is in danger and must figure out who she is and the truth, to survive. Partho Protim Banerjee and Rajasree Banerjee of Rajprotim Art Ventures Private Limited have bankrolled the film.
