Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is a film made for cinema lovers. If you want to get entertained with typical Bollywood commercial song and dance, kindly stay away from this one. If you want to watch something different which is nothing but just cinematic brilliance then Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is something you cannot miss.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy works majorly for its technical aspects. Film deserves full marks for its production design which is flawless; roads, cars, houses in the film, their interiors, costumes and make-up of the artists just take you back in time. Lighting in the film is exceptional and direction is outstanding. Seems like Dibakar Banerjee went back and lived in 1940’s for a certain period as a homework for this film. Technically the film deserves double thumbs up. If you appreciate every other aspect of the film rather than just its entertainment quotient then Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is waiting to meet you.

Every single character in the film delivers a good performance but fails to connect with the audience emotionally. When Byomkesh Bakshy is fooled you do not feel bad for him, neither you cheer for him when he is smartly solving the mystery. Sushant Singh Rajput looked authentic as Byomkesh Bakshy but his performance was nothing different from his previous films. Dibakar Banerjee’s execution keeps you on the edge of your seat but fails to relate his characters with the audience. Film has a very engaging background score and editing is perfect.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy needs to be watched for Dibakar Banerjee’s genuine efforts. Unfortunately this one is strictly for cinema lovers.

Rating: 3/5
