Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is outstanding and like the makers said, 'Expect the unexpected' from the movie for it seems to be quite an enthralling one.
The film that stars Sushant Singh Rajput as the lead
character of Byomkesh Bakshy is based on a fictional person created
by the Bengali writer Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay.
Director Dibakar Banerjee reveals why Sushant was cast in the
lead role, "I wanted an actor who is on his way to become a star
but is not bigger than his acting persona. I wanted a star who
takes acting very seriously. I wanted a young actor who is
vulnerable because Byomkesh in my film is on his first case," he
Dibakar and his co-writer Urmi Juvekar, researched about the
Calcutta of 1943, "A successful detective story is about time and
place. You cannot imagine ‘Sherlock Homes' without Victorian
London. Similarly, you cannot imagine ‘Byomkesh Bakshy' without the
mid 20th century Calcutta. It's a deeply present in the characters
and in the story. One had to bring Calcutta alive," he
When asked about the film and his experience during making the
film, Dibakar said, "I have been fascinated by the stories and by
Byomkesh's character since I read it for the first time. And when I
read it I read all the 33 novels all together it took me maybe two
to three years but I remember how deep an impression it had on me.
So when I thought of making it as a film I was nervous. It was
going to be my second film but I did not think I was mature enough
as a film maker to take this on at that time."
