Detective Byomkesh Bakhshy! title screen
Detective Byomkesh Bakhshy!
Thoroughly enjoyable period detective drama from Dibakar Banerjee, based on Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s novel series, with Sushant Singh Rajput as the eponymous hero – a recently graduated student in wartime Calcutta who by accident becomes a private detective.

Some great background texture and classic noir tropes help shape a movie that is at once different and familiar.
