Revealing Mistakes
When Byomkesh sends Ajit to deliver a letter to Dr. Guha, Ajit reads it in car and Byomkesh's voice narrates the letter in background. But the content of letter doesn't match with the voice narration.

Miscellaneous
When bombing is seen in the distance, there are no searchlights, zeppelins or anti-aircraft explosions visible at all.

Factual Mistake
When Dr. Guha return and Byomkesh meets him on the roof of the building at the time there was a blackout Kolkata as Japanese were bombing the city, but behind Bymokesh a light bulb can been seen, which is switched on.

Errors in Geography
The film takes place in 1942/1943, but one character is shown reading Inside Detective magazine from July 1946.
Trivia:
This is Dibakar Banerjee's first collaboration with Yashraj.

The writer of Byomkesh Bakshi novels was inspired by Sherlock Holmes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Songs used in trailers are, 'Life is a Bitch' in the teaser and 'Chase in Chinatown' in the first trailer. Both feature in the movie's OST.

Aamir Khan was offered the villain's role in the film but declined it.
