Rani Mukerji was the first choice for the role of Anguri Devi. The actress however balked at the character's risqué scenes and so Swastika Mukherjee (no relation) was cast instead. See more »
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.

Everything is amazing in the movie, the set especially. It is very scripted and screen written. Director Dibaker Banarjee has proved that he is in class of pure elite film-makers like Raju Hirani,Anurag Kashyap,Neeraj Pandey etc. It is set in 1942 with a loose connection to World war II. In short, it is all brilliantly put. The antagonist of the movie is more powerful than the protagonist. this gives another spark to the movie. Every scene is interconnected with each other which makes this mystery tale perfect. There is not a single scene about the movie which you can say is unnecessarily put into it. The only thing which could have been better is that the actors could have performed better. Sushant did all he could but that was like his 3rd film so he is not to blame and all the other actors aren't famous. Just because few people who have zero knowledge of movie have given negative reviews about it doesn't mean that movie isn't good. Anyone who loves sherlock is going to love this movie too. Its not a movie to miss guys. And its sad the movies like kick, dhoom3 and chennai express do all the business only because of big names while good movies like DBB don't get the business they deserve. Its a pure delight for mystery lovers.
