"CALCUTTA 1943 A WAR - A MYSTERY - and A DETECTIVE" Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is based on the early exploits of India's first true-blue detective, created by Bengali bestseller writer Saradindu Bandyopadhyay. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the film is set in the Second World War torn Calcutta during the 1940s and follows the first adventure of Byomkesh Bakshy (Sushant Singh Rajput), fresh out of college, as he pits himself against an evil genius who is out to destroy the world. Using his wits against the most villainous arch criminal the world has seen, in a world of murder, international political intrigue and seduction.Written by
At the 30-minute mark, the as-yet-unnamed Angury Devi (Swastika Mukherjee's character) asks Byomkesh if he has never seen her. Byomkesh is seen walking past an advertisement bearing a likeness of Anguri Devi as part of an advertisement for a "beauty soap" behind a bus around the 14-minute mark, as the opening credits are being shown.

The Invitation Cards of Leela Basu & Atanu Chandra Sen and Byomkesh Bakshy & Satyawanti Devi Ghosh has most of the things similar, for example, brother and sister names (Manu, Govind, Ila, Babu, Lata). However the year mentioned (1350) is from the Bengali solar calendar, which coincides with Gregorian 1942. See more »

bollywood comes to the rescue!!
Wow! Just yesterday, i saw that expensive disaster, fast n furious 7, and my faith in cinema went down a little. but today, with the help of Mr.Byomkesh, brings back the faith and belief. the first half gets a tad slow at times as they are building the characters and the atmosphere, but its Calcutta yo - gotta be slow! the second half though- spectacular - culminating in a crackerjack climax. the atmosphere, the cast, the production, the soundtrack (oh, the soundtrack!!). all brilliant. the Indian sherlock and Moriarty have been established - here's hoping for a resounding success and many more sequels. the lord knows we need good cinema in the times of the khans!!
