Detective Byomkesh Bakshy

Director: Dibakar Banerjee
Actors: Sushant Singh Rajput, Anand Tiwari

Rating: 3 / 5

When Byomkesh Bakshy name is heard, it is expected that the plot will be intelligent and will be solved with no ammunitions. The movie has done justice to this theme. The plot is genuine and well worked by Dibakar Banerjee and the original writer Saradindu Bandopaddhyay although doesn’t give a bigger kick as compared to the original series. What wins here is the cinematography. Back 1940s Kolkata scenes are shot tremendously with an amazing blend of background score and direction. The story might throw an opinion of being slow but it’s perfectly fine if it makes people think constantly throughout before revealing the actual facts. Few interesting characters are built very intelligently that enhances the overall feel of the movie.

Sushant Singh Rajput was completely amalgamated in the role and had a perfect body language. He displayed the attitude that was required and never went for overkill. Anand Tiwari supported him well by displaying a good Bengali look. All other characters performed well with few impressive dialogues to back them.

Although Dibakar Banerjee has had his flaws in his earlier flicks but still a good work is expected from him every time. This time he stood up-to-the reputation he has built. The direction was never exaggerated. The simple looking plot was executed in a simple way.

Very rarely it happens that you want to write so much about the musical connect. Sneha Khanwalkar was bang on with the amazing background score and music that connects well with the movie. It often changes the mood effectively with a seductive touch. It gives it shots in between and ends with a ravaging touch.

Overall, an excellent cinematography and a genuine plot that is slow but perfectly fine as it makes you think constantly.
