Detective Byomkesh Bakshy  Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

In the end the film has a lot going for it, even if it isn’t as fully satisfying as Banerjee’s previous works. This is a sprawling, ambitious effort with remarkable attention to detail; a film that deserves to be watched, especially for its masterful filmmaking. I’m going with three out of five for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy. Give it a chance, prepare to be patient, and chances are that it’ll stay with you.

The film also plays with contrasts to great effect. The characters wear desi outfits of the period, but stylistically the film has the look and feel of a modern international thriller.The eclectic background score composed of contemporary songs and sounds that sound anachronistic but enhance the visuals.Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is a cinematic delight that deserves a sustained run in the multiplexes.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is possibly India’s best-looking sleuth flick till now. A chilling climax masterfully ties up the tale – but 30 minutes less would’ve given this a much firmer knot. Still, DBB! is a fun watch presenting another mystery – how Sushant looks good, despite a uni-brow?Go solve.

On the whole, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is an ordinary fare which does not give the audience the thrill of a murder mystery. While it will be liked by the classes, its acceptance among the masses will be limited. It will, therefore, not do good business at the box-office.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is the best looking and least captivating of the current lot. And, as said earlier, he didn’t like to be called detective. Defective Byomkesh Bakshy, then.

But this is also one of those films that makes up for the principal actor’s deficiencies by the performances of those who surround him. Anand Tiwari’s second-fiddle act is first-rate, and Neeraj Kabi, as the deceptively and determinedly good-natured doctor who runs the shabby-genteel ‘men-only’ lodgings where much of the action takes place, is so good you forgive his last-minute exaggerations.You can say the same thing about the film.

A classic whodunit thriller which holds the suspense quite firmly till the end. This is an excellent effort of bringing to life India’s detective figure Byomkesh Bakshy and with this film, Dibakar Banerjee forms a strong base for a crime-mystery franchise. Characters are strong and the suspense build-up is bang on.

As far as the film is concerned, even though it’s a whodunit thriller, the thrill of watching a thriller gets lost midway through the film. In the name of a whodunit genre, the film goes overboard totally, thus, resulting into the film falling flat on the face. On the whole, DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY! can be skipped, without any regrets.

Don’t miss it. Even if just to go back to the magical world of nostalgia created so beautifully and earnestly by Banerjee and cinematographer Nikos Andritsakis.
