Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, Story, Plot, Movie Review

Director Dibakar Banerjee recreates 1943 Calcutta for the big screen in period thriller Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! , starring actor Sushant Singh Rajput as the titular private eye on his first case. The film is the first Bollywood version of Bengali author Saradindu Bandopadhyay’s sleuth series.

Ajit Bandyopadhyay (Anand Tiwari) approaches an arrogant collegiate Byomkesh Bakshy with a case of his missing father, in the town full of his town full of disguises and mysteries.

After being heartbroken by his lady love who gets hitched to someone else, Byomkesh decides to solve Ajit’s case and here starts a tale of interlinked stories as Bakshy tries to join the dots.

While solving this mysterious case Byomeksh meets distinctive characters such as the seductress Anguri Devi (Swastika), a room mate and drug dealer Kanai, the guest house owner Dr. Guha (Neeraj Kabi) and his second love interest Satyavati (Divya Menon). But the quest remains for the masterplanner of Calcutta’s destruction Yuan Guang.

Will Byomkesh be succesful at solving the murder mystery or will he get get trapped in the process?

Sushant Singh Rajput as Byomkesh Bakshy is very good and you will wonder if one else could have done the role any better.

He is apt as a detective who relies on his observation skills and is highly logical.

Swastika Mukherjee as Anguri Deviis very hot however but doesn’t impress much with her acting while Anand Tiwari as Ajit Bandyopadhyay is is getting better with every film and he is remarkable in this film too. His camaraderie with Sushant looks very natural in the film.

Dibakar Banerjee has done an outstanding job with his descriptive nature of direction and recreating the 1940s Kolkatta. The characters are dressed perfect and his storytelling keeps you engrossed.

The background score too works for the film which is again quite different.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is a delicious thriller with amazing story and its even better execution along with good performances by the actors.
