    Baksh-(d)y : The Case of Mystaken Ynspyratyon!

    Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! rating: 5 out of 10

    Well, he did warn us…he gave us the clues… Unfortunately, the “Satyanweshi” in us did not pay heed or take note.

    5 minutes into the movie as the protagonist takes a tram ride across Calcutta in the 40s (a brilliantly shot sequence) and the credits roll, I received the unexpected jolt when the credits read “Story: Dibakar Banerjee & Urmi Juvekar”. Soon flashed on the screen “Based on characters created by Saradindu Bandyopadhyay”… Well that’s the story of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy.

    Clue No. 1!

    TERRIFYING BRAIN BATTLE WITH HAUNTING CONSEQUENCES

    Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! rating: 7 out of 10

    By Somak Basu(06 Apr 2015)

    First things first. If you are some cynic who is more interested in criticizing the “failed” adaptation of Sir Saradindu Bandopadhyay classic crime mystery thriller novels rather than Bollywood’s keen interest to shade some light on that, then I would recommend to keep yourself away from the movie if it hurts your sentiments that much. Or, if possible, try to watch the movie as a thriller with some sleuth keeping aside the “Bakshi(y)” factor. There’s a difference between “Based on the novel by” and “Based on characters created by”, and here’s where Detective Byomkesh Bakshy ... » read more

    Nishikant Dubey On Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!

    Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! rating: 7 out of 10

    By Nishikant Dubey (05 May 2015)

    In a contemporary interpretation of war torn Calcutta during the 1940's, the film follows the first adventure of Byomkesh (Sushant Singh Rajput), fresh out of college, as he pits himself against an evil genius who is out to destroy the world. It's his wits against the most villainous arch criminal the world has seen, in a world of murder, international political intrigue and seduction.Must Watch Movie

Film: "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!"; Cast: Sushant Singh Rajput, Anand Tiwari, Swastika Mukherjee, Divya Menon, Neeraj Kabi; Director: Dibakar Banerjee; Rating: ****(4 Stars)

As layer after layer of intrigue and mystery are peeled off this Chinese puzzle of a movie, you are finally left staring wide-eyed and open-mouthed at a work of wondrous art. Exquisite in form, compelling and at times, deeply impenetrable in content, "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! (DBB)" is what a whodunit was meant to be all along.

Somehow Hindi cinema never got down to doing a real murder mystery before this. Maybe the genre waited to be cracked by the deftly disingenuous Dibakar Bannerjee. To get to the bottom of that mystery of why the murder mystery never came to fruition before this, we must wait for» Read full review
