Commissioned in 1943, the iconic bridge was a replacement of the pontoon bridge linking Kolkata and Howrah, over the river Hooghly. It was the fourth longest suspension bridge in the world at the time.
It stretches for 2,150 feet and rises up to 280 feet from its foundation and ranks as the sixth longest bridge in the world now. The bridge finds a prominent place in the poster of ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’.

The period film is set in the same time frame as the birth of Howrah Bridge and the team was keen to honour the bridge in their way. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Swastika Mukherji in the lead roles.
