The film Projapoti, made by Dev’s home production, is the most successful Bengali film of 2022. The film was involved in many debates. However, the business overpowered the controversies.

In the first two weeks, the film did business of over Rs 2.5 crores. It came down to Rs 1.99 crores in the third week. then the business gradually came down, but still, it is running all over the country gloriously. 

The sweet chemistry of a father-son relationship mesmerized the audience. The father wants to get his son married, and in the course, he falls in love. The story of sacrifice for the sake of his son and the tiffs and tussles between father and son captivated the audience. Dev and Mithun presented several memorable scenes. 

However, the film did not get a slot in Nandan. Dev tweeted about it, which incited the debate. Dilip Ghosh said that the film did not get a slot in Nandan because Mithun was in the film. Kunal Ghosh replied that Dev did a wonderful job but Mithun was a disaster in the film. Paran Bandyopadhyay would have been a better choice. Then Dev said that he was the best one to judge anything about a film.
