A still from Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!

Dibakar Banerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! opened last Friday to mostly good reviews but the box office appears to have some catching up to do.

The period thriller, starring actor Sushant Singh Rajput as a sleuth in colonial Calcutta, has earned a little over Rs 14 crores in three days.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted:
 



As Byomkesh Bakshy struggles to solve the case of the unwelcoming box office, Hollywood offering Furious 7 has raked in Rs 48 crores in four days, reports Box Office India.

The seventh instalment of the Fast and Furious series, the last film starring actor Paul Walker who died in a car crash in 2013, is the biggest moneyspinner in America as well, making a massive $143.6 million in its opening weekend.

Meanwhile, Dum Laga Ke Haisha and NH10, the films that preceded Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, have made over Rs 30 crores each.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, set in 1943's Calcutta, also co-stars Anand Tiwari, Neeraj Kabi, Swastika Mukherjee and Divya Menon.
