Meet the squad
Rahul speaks very little, and when he does speak, you need to strain your ears to hear what he is saying. That said, most people do consult him on any problem they face, because he is the man with answers to pretty much everything.
Works for a group of black hat detectives. Has been photographing and videotaping everything that happens in office. He is Rahul's brother (really!).
Bikramjit once achieved celebrity status, after single-handedly capturing a gun-toting robber. He dislikes irresponsible people. He loves to spend his leisure time with his family. He still fears his Dad, though.
Pallab is a foodie and loves photography. In between having foods and taking pictures he loves to lead a team and try to do some programming.
Uttam is friendly, jolly and punctual. Talks to you only if you talk to him first. Likes to believe that nobody has landed on the moon till date, and that it was all an elaborate hoax.
Can easily spend the rest of his life with his computer. Always tries to make his goals in life very clear. Often plays cupid, and quite successfully, too!
Aspired to be a soldier and ended up becoming a Technical Specialist. Always fights like a one-man army against fears and obstacles, as well as negative thoughts and circumstances. Hardworking and honest about duty. He never cares for what people say or think about him. Hates rudeness.
A doting mom, movie freak and hard core Scoliodentosaurophobic (for the uninitiated: specific fear of lizards). Hates to be idle on weekends and fanatically believes that retail therapy is the best stress buster.
As a teenager, he wanted to be a movie director or a musician, because he thought they are fun jobs that could help him make lots of money. He is always willing to take a risk with learning opportunities. He feels his greatest accomplishments are always ahead of him.
Somashekara shows that age is just a number. Whether it is holding his drink or playing football he holds his own with the younger crowd. Do you need something done in the office? He is your man.
Considers himself "A guy-next-door". He talks, eats and sleeps less than most, but is trying to make up for those by going out on multiple short trips in the near future.

Souvik is another addition to our football fanatic club. He had once captained his college team, leading them to a victory in the inter-college tournament. While not exactly a cynophobe, dogs do haunt him. Might be due to the number of stitches he got after getting assaulted by one.
If you swear by "Har ek friend zaroori hota hai" you will love Kishan. Laid-back in attitude anytime outside office hours, Kishan can brighten up a party simply with his presence. He doesn’t talk much, but is an excellent listener. Loves to unwind on the couch with a good movie or anime playing on the laptop.

A gaming addict, Suvradip is fond of DOTA 2, CS 1.6, FIFA, NFS… the list goes on. If asked to describe himself the first thing that comes to his mind is Phasmophobia (fear of ghosts for the uninitiated). We are yet to find out whether he has ever encountered any of them, though.

The go-to data guy. People assumed him to be the silent one. Once you’re familiar with Sushant, there’s no dearth of fun & frolic, and of-course some PJs . Just beware of times when Cricket is on and his team is losing - you wouldn’t want to be on the winning side.
