Eken Babu is a Bengali detective web series streaming on Hoichoi. The show revolves around Eken Babu, a private detective who solves various cases that come his way. Eken Babu is played by Anirban Chakrabarti, who appears in the titular role. The series is set in Kolkata and follows Eken Babu solving intricate and mysterious cases that challenge his deductive abilities. Each episode delves into a new case, and in a short span of around 30 minutes, Eken Babu solves them. The series is directed by Anirban Mallik and produced by Roadshow Films.

Eken Babu is not your typical detective with Sherlockian deductive abilities; he is more like a regular guy who has a knack of noticing things most people would ignore. He is witty, quirky and has a peculiar sense of humour which makes him stand out among other sleuths. He lives in a small apartment with his mother and loves his tea. Eken Babu is also a bit of a hypochondriac and is always worrying about his health. However, he does not let that hinder his work as a detective.

The supporting cast of the show is also noteworthy, especially the character of Bhola, who is played by Saheb Bhattacharjee, Eken Babu's sidekick. Bhola is an interesting character who is always trying to learn tricks of the trade from Eken Babu, but ends up creating chaos more often than not. Bhola is funny, naive and adds a layer of comic relief to an otherwise serious show.

The cases that Eken Babu solves are diverse and range from theft to murder, and the writers of the show have managed to keep the audience engaged by creating intriguing plots. The show also has some interesting visuals, and the camera work is top-notch. Each episode has a distinct feel and adds to the overall appeal of the show.

One of the highlights of the show is the use of Bengali language and culture. The show's Bengali dialogues, slangs and proverbs add a unique flavour to the series, and it feels refreshing to watch a show that is so rooted in Bengali culture. However, non-Bengali speakers need not worry as the show has English subtitles.

Overall, Eken Babu is an entertaining show that is perfect for anyone who loves crime-drama and detective stories. The episodes are short, and the show's quirky characters and clever writing make it an enjoyable watch. Eken Babu is a refreshing take on the detective genre, and with its unique characters and engaging storyline, it is a must-watch for anyone looking for a good mystery.

Eken Babu is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (21 episodes). The series first aired on March 9, 2018.
