Biday Byomkesh Review & Rating
Biday Byomkesh directed by Debaloy Bhattacharya is an original film about an octogenarian Byomkesh, who is done crime-fighting. His son has gone missing for two years and when he returns, he surrenders for committing a murder. Now, Byomkesh needs to return to his "Satyanweshan" to find out the truth. Byomkesh's grandson Satyaki will be his companion in his crime fighting.
Whenever a film is made on Satyanweshi Byomkesh Bakshi, it focused on Byomkesh's brilliant mind and unparalleled intuition in crime investigation. This time, the film also explores Byomkesh Bakshi as an individual. The director has taken the opportunity to concentrate on complex relationships in Byomkesh’s household rather making it just another thriller involving the iconic sleuth. Debaloy didn't try to surpass the master story-teller Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay which worked for the film.
The director's biggest card was Satyaki, the grandson of Byomkesh. The character beautifully justified the legacy of Byomkesh without taking the focus away from him. Satyaki, initially as an arrogant young man and gradually transforms into the right hand of his grandfather, who would carry on Byomkesh's work in the field. Byomkesh's love for his son and grandson weakens him while the detective in him tires hard to stay truthful to the fact.
In acting, Abir looked more convincing as a young Satyaki than an old Byomkesh Bakshi. Sohini did justice to her roles. Joy Sengupta stood out in his layered characters while Rupankar Bagchi came up as a pleasant surprise.

An experiment to root for
Putting Bengal's iconic fictional figure Byomkesh Bakshi in the center and building up a new story around him setting it in the current time sounds challenging.

He will also essay the young Satyaki, the grandson of Satyanweshi. In the film, Satyabati has died. But, Sohini will be seen in a double role! Joy Sengupta will return to mainstream films with it.
