Kiriti Struggles after Byomkesh
By Hemant Reddy S 09/02/2016

 The Byomkesh battle is far from over and even before Kakababus fight it out at the box office, another sleuth has signed up for the competition ahead.
At least two directors are set to adapt Nihar Ranjan Gupta's Kiriti Roy for the big screen. While Anindya Bikas Dutta's film based on Kalo Bhromor is already on the floors, Aniket Chattopadhyay will begin his next on Setarer Sur from the first week of March.

 


Also vying for attention are the two Kiritis -Indraneil Sengupta and Chiranjeet Chakraborty . Aniket, who has roped in Chiranjeet, has his own reasons for the casting."In my film, Kiriti is a middle-aged man and I couldn't think of anyone else who can play the part better than Chiranjeet. He has maintained himself very well. Also, his father Saila Chakraborty had done many illustrations of Kiriti which crossed my mind while finalising this project," said the director.

 

 

 


While Anjana Basu will essay the character of Krishna, Kiriti's wife, his sidekick Subrata will be played by Sujan `Neel' Mukherjee.For the other important roles, the director has roped in Swastika Mukherjee, Rahul, Saayoni Ghosh, Ankita, Kanchana Moitra, Prantik and Krishnendu Dewanji, a popular face on stage.

 

 

 


A self-confessed fan of Sherlock Holmes, Aniket said, "Even Kiriti, in many ways, comes close to Sherlock. He wears an overcoat, smokes pipe and is seen emerging from the shadows to take charge of murder mysteries." Aniket, who has the script ready , is set to recreate Bengal during 1956. "It will not be through gramophones and glass lamps from another era. My film will throw light on the politics of the time, which doesn't find much mention in the novel. The shoot will take place in Kolkata. Kaustuv Roy , who is helming the production, has already procured rights to several Kiriti novels and I hope to deliver at least one film every year," he said. On being asked about competition, Aniket said, "I'm not clued into other Kiriti ventures. I love thrillers and this is what I always wanted to do. In the times of Byomkesh and Kakababu, I want to thrill people a little more. Another production house may join us in the project, which is likely to help the distribution in a big way."

 

 

 


Chiranjeet too seemed upbeat about the venture."I am very fond of Kiriti and when they approached me, I was happy to oblige," he said.
Anindya, who has already begun shooting his film with Indraneil as Kiriti, Arunima Ghosh as Krishna, Samadarshi Dutta as Subrata and Kaushik Sen as Kiriti's adversary , Kalo Bhromor, was clueless about another Kiriti movie when we called him. "I had heard about another Kiriti film, but don't know who is directing or producing it and other details. I'm happy to begin my own shoot," he told us.
