So today, I thought about reviewing a Bollywood movie and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy was the most recent Bollywood movie I had seen.
So, Byomkesh Bakshy is a thriller film by Dibakar Banerjee. It stars Sushant Singh Rajput as the protagonist who investigates the disappearance of Ajit Bandyopadhyay’s father and during the process stumbles upon a conspiracy to overthrow the British Government in India.
Well, Sushant Singh Rajput gives a good performance as Byomkesh. He is one of those few folks in Bollywood you should watch out for. But, the highlight of the movie was the performance of Neeraj Kabi which gave me the chills in the end.
The movie has two twists, before the interval and one in the climax which were very good. The layered screenplay is awesome but it proves out to be an average detective movie. The direction is awesome. Dibakar does brilliant work in directing. The movie feels so real. Hats off to Vandana Kataria, the production designer, who created such a stupendous Kolkata of 1940s . The costumes and make up is brilliant.
On the technical aspects, this movie is a treat. The one thing that was a positive aspect of the movie was that Byomkesh explains every scene at regular intervals. The thing about the movie is that many dialogues are indecipherable. Therefore, it helped that Bymokesh explains the scene at regular intervals. We get the scene afterwards, but when I was watching it, I was like scratching my head and muttering ‘ What the heck is going on ?’ and I was irritated throughout the flick.
The worst part of the flick was the climax. It ended Tarantino style, but with no sense whatsoever. There was sword-fighting, dead bodies lying all around, idiotic dialogues, and an insane blind guy shouting for revenge in the climax. Therefore, typical Bollywood gibberish cliche was back. This movie has an equal proportion of pros and cons and I recommend you to not waste your money on this one and just watch it when it comes on television.
Rating : 6.6/10
