Hoichoi unveiled the teaser for its upcoming detective-crime thriller, Damayanti, on Tuesday. Helmed by Aritra Sen & Rohan Ghose, the show will feature Tuhina Das in the lead alongside Indrashish Ray, Chandreyee Ghosh, and Amrita Chattopadhyay. The web series is slated for a release this Puja.
The official description of the show reads:
“There’s a difference between being a detective and being a seeker of truth, and she is the answer…”
Based on “Rohoshyo Shondhani Damayanti” by Manoj Sen, the show will focus on the life of a history professor, who is also a computer hacker. Starring Tuhina Das as the titular spy, this will be Hoichoi’s first female-detective franchise.
“Damayanti gives us the opportunity to explore the mind of a female protagonist yet again after Kaali. Damayanti is not your regular detective. She is highly qualified, she is very inquisitive about anything mysterious. What sets her apart is the fact that she gets emotionally connected to the cases.
“There are various layers to the character which we have added and made the story contemporary. With her husband Samaresh, and their police friend Shiben, they form the formidable trio trying to delve deep into the notorious cases that come their way,” the directors said in a statement.
Last month marked the platform’s third anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, Hoichoi announced a total of 27 new titles, with 25 web series and two films in the mix, making Damayanti the first of many more to come.
