I wanted to do a murder mystery. Instead of creating another detective, I decided to make it more unique.
After having ideating we decided not to focus on a touristic side of Darjeeling but on areas never usually seen. The grimy, gritty, backstreets, alleys, lanes, bazar, localities never seen before... the lived in spaces," says Anjan Dutt while sharing a peek into the plot.
