As far as the trailer of the film is concerned, the climax of the trailer is quite promising.

The trailer has revealed the epic friendship between the two characters.

The film focuses on a murder mystery; however, the film also has quite a streamlined central point, i.e., a political scenario. Moreover, the film is said to be quite dynamic as well as high-octane when compared with any other previous renditions.

In addition to this, Satyanweshi Byomkesh is the first film that has been directed by Sayantan Ghosal, a millennial director. Ghosal claims that Satyanweshi Byomkesh might redefine the term “filmography.”

The film has the classic touch of the old story, nevertheless, it is modern as well as fast-paced. The interpretations of the film are anew, the editing is different and the technicalities of the film are quite modern.

The most challenging part of curating Satyanweshi Byomkesh was that adapting the storyline of the 60s and 70s when Kolkata was in a tumultuous period. The film reflects the contemporary storytelling period which is different from the films directed by Satyajit Ray.

Satyanweshi Byomkesh Movie Review

A Byomkesh Bakshi film has become an integral part of Durga Pujo every year, and this year is no different. In accordance with this, the only difference with this year’s Byomkesh Bakshi film is that the director is different as well as the actors. However, the story and the plot is interesting as the films of the past, it might be outrageous to say that Satyanweshi Byomkesh is a better film.

Parambrata Chatterjee portrays the role of the famous Bengali detective Byomkesh Bakshi. Additionally, Rudranil Ghosh portrays the role of Ajit, Bakshi’s only companion as well as the author of Bakshi’s cases.

The new adaptation will showcase the traits of Bakshi that have never been seen or heard. Satyanweshi Byomkesh will unveil some of the unknown traits of the remarkable detective. In the trailer of the film, Ajit is heard saying that people are much interested to know about revenge stories, human relationships, and it is his job not to document these details.

The film takes place in the era of 1971 when there is an on-going liberation war in Bangladesh and the Naxal movement across the state and the country. The story is a clear winner and the untoward occurrences where Bakshi is hired by Manish Chakraborty for hunting down the culprit make the film the perfect thriller flick of 2019.

Rating: 4.25/5
