Development[edit | edit source]
Director Pratim D. Gupta first thought of naming the film “Ink” but later decided to stick to a name closer to home, to avoid confusion about the film's language. Shantilal Bhattacharjee is an original character born out of Pratim D. Gupta's love for detective fiction.
“ The film was earlier titled Ink, based on my Sundance Lab-selected script. But I didn’t want the audience to be confused about whether it’s an English film or a Bangla film. Hence, the new title. I have always loved thrillers. As is evident with Shaheb Bibi Golaam. So, making a detective thriller has always been on my mind. My favourite Ritwick luckily hasn’t played a detective yet while all the other leading men have.."
