Dutta also expressed gratitude for his producer Kaustubh Ray for his support in making this film. “When I started the project my producer told just to me carry on with the work and not worry much about box-office. It was a great feeling to work with a producer that supportive,” said the director.

The cine lovers of Kolkata are really excited about the film and were happy to see their favorite stars at the premiere of this much awaiteddetective movie.

The film turned about to be a very pleasant watch. Abir is smart, brilliant and candid as Byomkesh, and Saswata fine enough as the detective’s best pal Ajit. Pijush, Swastika, Biswajit and others all did their parts well. Veteran actor Kalyan Chatterjee once again proves his acting capabities in the role of Kestobabu. And Rudraneel simply mesmerizes!! The young talent, also very famous for doing comedies, has a very wide range of acting.

The film, even though thriller, is more based on dialogues than actions and so-called adventures. The movie has a smooth homogeneously flow.  Anjan Dutta’s impresses with his way of telling a detective story, so rich in drama.

All the departments have been efficiently handled in the film. The cinematography and the dialogues are especially enjoyable. The movie portrays a good retro image. Neel Dutta has scored good music.

Among the audience were present celebs like Aparna Sen, Rituparno Ghosh, Biplab Chattopadhyay, June Malia, Arindam Seal, Kanchan Mullick, Biswanath Basu, Neel Mukhopadhyay, and of course Abir’s actor parents.

  1. The movie Byomkesh Bakshi based on Adim Ripu was a good one. Saswata,Rudranil,Chandan Sen were outstanding. Abir was good. His dialogues required modulation.
    Anjan Dutta did some unacceptable and unnecessary changes in the story – particularly the relationship between Anadi Haldar and Nonibala. Also use of some slangs and terms like “Sahabas” could have been avoided. Being a fan of Saradindu Bandopadhyay it is harsh to me since the author never used such words or ideas in his creations which were extremely decent in expression. Overall 3.5 out of 5.

  2. The film Bomkesh Bakshi is highly disappointing, and it is not expected from someone like Anjan Dutt. The riot scenes are so very amateurish. The main hero Abir doesn’t have the maturity or an edge of a detective so a bad choice. The film is so tiresome,the jabbering goes on and on without any break or relief. The music is not original it has been lifted from Hollywood movie Sherlock Holmes. In other words the movie is a total let down. I would give 1.5 out of 5.

  3. Sorry……….I did’nt expect this kind of idiotic film from Anjan Dutta. I read this book for first time when i was in class Six. Approax “DIRECTOR” should have done some more study about Byomkesh Bakshi…. It was really Anjan Dutta’s Byomkesh Bakshi not Sharadindu Bandopadhyay’s. I will request Mr.Anjan Dutta to remove the name Sharadindu Bandopadhyay from the credit……..Please…..
