Trivia

At the 30-minute mark, the as-yet-unnamed Angury Devi (Swastika Mukherjee's character) asks Byomkesh if he has never seen her. Byomkesh is seen walking past an advertisement bearing a likeness of Anguri Devi as part of an advertisement for a "beauty soap" behind a bus around the 14-minute mark, as the opening credits are being shown.

Goofs

An openly practicing Japanese dentist, language teacher and samurai swordsmanship enthusiast (and also a secret service agent) in a British colony during war time would never be allowed be stay free under any circumstances. He would be detained in an internment camp of which many existed in India during WW2 and held German and Italian nationals. In the movie Dr. Watanabe is neither disguised as any other national (Chinese, Korean, etc.) nor is he under British secret service surveillance even assuming they deliberately allowed him to stay free.
