Directed by Debaloy Bhattacharya, the film will also feature Paran Bandyopadhyay
After his successful delivery of the Hoichoi web series Indubala Bhaater Hotel, Debaloy Bhattacharya is all set to bring Swapankumar’s pulp fiction to the big screen. As a result, Bengali detective lovers will get yet another sleuth, Deepak Chatterjee. What's more, the iconic character will be portrayed by none other than Abir Chatterjee, who has successfully been seen as Byomkesh, Sonada, and Feluda before.
The film will mark the debut production of Hoichoi Studios – a new wing of the OTT platform for theatrical releases. The film will adopt Shri Swapankumar-er Badami Hyena’r Kobole and is slated for a theatrical release this Kali Puja. Veteran actor Paran Bandyopadhyay will be seen as the writer Swapankumar.
While mentioning his first project with Hoichoi Studios, Shri Swapankumar-er Badami Hyena’r Kobole, Abir Chatterjee said, “It’s a grand moment for every one of us who are associated with the process of creating content for the entertainment of the mass. I am immensely thrilled to be playing not only the character of Deepak Chatterjee in Shri Swapankumar-er Badami Hyena’r Kobole but also to be a part of the first project for Hoichoi Studios. I hope Hoichoi will garner the same amount of love as it ventures into a new format of storytelling with its new studio wing.”
Speaking about his directorial venture, Debaloy said, “The feeling of creating the debut content for Hoichoi Studios itself comes with a lot of excitement. What is adding more to this is to be able to create a film with such a famous Bengali character who is so full of pulp and thrill and at the opportunity of presenting Bengal’s first action-based detective content. I am really looking forward to being able to present many such contents that tell impactful stories and create magic on the big screen.”
The shooting of the first project of Hoichoi Studios, Shri Swapankumar-er Badami Hyena’r Kobole will start this May.
