Maharaja Arunangshu, the ruler of a princely state named Balabantpur,had made a wish list on his death bed in the presence of Dewan Chandrashekhar, the family physician Kaligati and the High Priest. It laid down certain conditions for his heir, his son Himangshu. The first of which forbade Himangshu from marrying a non Hindu girl, and the second demanded a legitimate heir within three years of his marriage. Bound by his father's conditions of succession, Himangshu is compelled to marry Alaka, an aspiring actress. A year and half into the marriage, Harinath, the young palace librarian disappears without any trace. This mystery occasions the arrival of the sleuth Byomkesh and his author friend Ajit to Balwantpur. The visit though is under the pretext of an invitation for a hunting expedition. In course of their stay, they unfold many secrets involving the residents of the palace and about the topography of Balwantpur. Byomkesh is particularly intrigued by the character of Kaligati, the ... Written by Aloke Majumder

#satyanweshi out of the world.. Spellbound ,speechless and completely engrossed into it. No superficial dialogues to earn stupid claps from public, no high end drama, yet Rituparno proves a thriller can be made without all these , just using supreme intelligence. the most "erudite" bomkesh till date..it seemed as if we are in a time machine and visiting 1940s, a period so perfectly created by the master, such a marvelous storytelling. and the story gets on you with time.. more the film goes, and by intermission you are completely sunk into it, deep down .. I don't think i can be out of the whole mystic world created in Satyanweshi for the next few days, absolutely stunning film.I miss you Rituparno Ghosh, more after watching this classic, for the last time.!
