BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: National Award-winning director, Srijit Mukherji’s superhit thriller Dwitiyo Purush completed 50 successful days at box office recently. The film had released across India on January 23, 2020 and witnessed multiple housefull shows across theatres. And on Friday, Srijit’s hit film starring Parambrata Chatterjee, Anirban Bhattacharya, Rwitobroto Mukherjee and Raima Sen, started streaming on Hoichoi.
Elated about this milestone achievement, Srijit said: “Just like Baishe Srabon, Dwitiyo Purush has got a superb response at the box office from day one and since then has been giving multiple housefull shows. It’s the first film of 2020 to have achieved this milestone and box office record!”
The story of Dwitiyo Purush, which is a spin-off to popular film Baishe Srabon, is set in two timelines – 1993 and 2019. In 1993, Chinatown, Kolkata – a gang war takes place between notorious gangs and quite a few murders happened. Police gets involved and finally is able to arrest the culprits. The entire incident gets covered up with political powers and influences.
26 years later, similar incidents take place in Chinatown, Kolkata – from exact similar locations to pattern of murder – everything. The case goes to none other than Abhijit Pakrashi (essayed by Parambrata), who is taken to be one of the best in this area, after he solved the very famous Prabir Roy Chowdhury (essayed by Prosenjit) case in Baishe Srabon. Abhijit along with his assistant, Rajat (Gaurav Chakraborty), starts off with their investigation only to come to a horrifying ending and brutal discoveries.
