What comes to your mind when you hear the magical words ‘Bollywood’? but does Byomkesh Bakshy serves you Bollywood? definitely a big no. It’s a rarely that a movie is intriguing and low on B-town masala stuffs, but higher end of involving the audience, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is one such flick.
The movie stamps an identity that is harder to portray on big screen for Sushant Singh Rajput and believe me his persona even though looks not so perfect yet doesn’t bother you, as you are more interested in the plot, though it limits the fun at some extents.
While Hollywood may have Sherlock Holmes, Our Byomkesh Bakshy makes us proud and does not copies or even pretends to be Sherlock. Saradindu Bandopadhyay’s Bengali detective is very well interpreted by Dibakar Banerjee’s adulteration.
The fearless, smart and fresh Byomkesh handles a plot of missing man, which very soon unveils itself to twist and turns than makes it a conspiracy of political interest, a murder, and go on to touch Japan.
Sushant’s onscreen character is seen more human than a flawless superhuman. Bakshi is seen learning from his mistakes and finally capture all through a well laid plan.
The background score will follow you and amaze you with it’s beautiful venturing into 1940’s Calcutta. Cinematography is one hell of a masterpiece, the detailing helps you enjoy subtle moments of reliving, oops ! seeing 1940’s Bengal.
The movie is a satisfying treat for everyone, and especially the self-proclaimed ‘good taste’ viewers who are partial towards intelligent literature, tv series and can not leave their at home have earned a journey which embarked with Detective Byomkesh Bakshy – the movie. No doubt the movie maker leave an open end for a sequel.
