Fox Searchlight has picked up worldwide remake rights from Native Voice Films to the Sundance documentary The Bengali Detective, according to Risky Business.

Philip Cox directed the film, which follows the efforts of a ragtag crew of private detectives led by the earnest Rajesh Ji that is trying to fill the crime-solving gap of a Calcutta society rampant with murder and fraud and an unengaged police force.

The nonfiction story delves richly into class issues and the corrupting undercurrent of an exploding economy that looks to the West as inspiration as Rajesh juggles caring for his dying wife, investigating a scourge of unsolved homicides and counterfeiting schemes, and pursuing a passion for dance that drives he and his entire crew to train for weeks with a cute choreographer.
