As Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is releasing tomorrow, we bring for you 9 good enough reasons to watch the film. Read on:


Sushant Singh Rajput
Ever since Sushant Singh Rajput entered Bollywood, he’s wowed everyone with his energy and talent. In the past, we have seen him essay some urban roles, but in Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, he has undergone a complete makeover to transform into his character. He is virtually unrecognisable in his Bengali sleuthing avatar and we are very impressed already!

Dibakar Banerjee
National Award winning director Dibakar Banerjee who has made films like Khosla Ka Ghosla and Oye Lucky! Luck Oye! is back with a film which is very different in all aspects. Known to be a perfectionist, Dibakar is one of the most gifted directors in recent times who has put his heart and soul into this film, and needless to say, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! has his indelible mark.

Vintage Calcutta

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is based in Calcutta and is set against the backdrop of World War II. The trailer gave a very realistic feel of what Calcutta would have looked like in the 1940s and it is easy to get lost in its old world charm. Here’s a history lesson we would love to learn.

Refreshing Music

Those who have seen the trailer would have easily notice the film’s brilliant and energetic background track. DBB‘s music has been composed by the very talented Sneha Khanwalkar who has worked on films like Gangs Of Wasseypur. Music plays a big part of any film, and DBB‘s songs already have us tapping our feet.

Fresh Cast

Apart from Sushant Singh Rajput, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! also features Anand Tiwari, Swastika Mukherjee and Meiyang Chang. A special film deserves an ensemble cast and it is going to be interesting to see what this team brings to the big screen.

Who’s The Villain?
The makers of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy have still kept the villain under-wraps. This is enough to reason for us to watch this film to see who will our hero go up against. We have a feeling that DBB will bring back the era of legendary villains who create lasting impressions on the big screen. Out of all the mysteries in the movie, this revelation will definitely take the cake.

The film has all the elements of a classic murder mystery – a determined detective, mysterious circumstances, a femme fatale and a complex background. The trailer has left us very curious and the film will undoubtedly be an edgy, shocking and surprising mystery waiting to be unveiled.

For those who have grown up on a steady supply of detective stories like Sherlock Holmes and books by Agatha Christie, here’s an opportunity to witness India’s very own super sleuth Byomkesh Bakshy in action. Byomkesh is a fictional detective created by author Saradindu Bandypadhyay and we are curious to see how this film’s cast and crew bring Bakshy to life.

Yash Raj Films
As a production house, Yash Raj Films has a reputation of backing quality films from varied genres. The banner is known for creating stellar hits, with their most recent film Dum Laga Ke Haisha finding both critical and commercial success. Considering YRF believes in Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, we are ready to give DBB a chance.
