‘Eagler Chokh’ is about a man named Bishan who has been sexually exploited since his childhood. This has made him pass through such a trauma that he has become repulsive to physical intimacy.

But the handsome and rich businessman is quite attractive and women easily fall for him. He too occasionally indulges in sex and alcohol when he goes for stress relieving tours with his friends who all have criminal backgrounds.

After returning from one such tour Bishan finds his wife lying in pool of blood. He also finds that his secretary has been shot. His wife goes into comatose and inspector Shabor enters the scene taking charge of the case.

As Shabor investigates the case further as a detective, loads of dark secrets keep unfolding about everyone related to the case.

The role of Bishan is being played by newcomer Anirban Bhattacharya. Anirban is a known face in Kolkata stage theater circuit and has received much appreciation for his role in Aparna Sen’s ‘Arshinagar’.

Joya Ahsan will be seen playing the role of Bishan’s wife. Arindam Sil is retaining the rest of his cast from the previous Shabor movie.

Actress Paayel Sarkar who was seen as a ‘girl next door’ Joyita will now be seen as Joya’s friend and business partner. June Malia who too was part of the previous Shabor movie and was seen in a dual role as Rita and Julekha will now portray the role of a psychiatrist in the crime thriller.

The film will also star Gaurav Chakrabarty in a pivotal role. He will be seen playing a young police officer who idolizes Shabor.


Kolkata-based popular models Riya Banik and Ushoshi Sengupta will also be seen in major roles in the movie. Ushosie will play the role of Joya’s younger sister. Deboprashad Halder is also playing an important role in the film.

Bickram Ghosh, the percussion wizard and son of  Pandit Shankar Ghosh, the tabla maestro from the Farukhabad gharana, will compose music for the film. Bickram has always been Arindam Sil’s top choice when it comes to music direction. All of his directorial ventures till date namely ‘Aborto’, ‘Ebar Shabor’ and ‘Har Har Byomkesh’ have had Bickram Ghosh as the music director and it doesn’t seem that there will be an exception in the near future.

Shamik Halder is the man behind the lens for this film.

The Bengali crime mystery thriller film is being produced by Shree Venkatesh films. Though the first movie in the series was produced by Mundus Creations, the production house has gone bankrupt and the rights have been taken over by Shree Venkatesh films.
