Goyenda Junior Review & Rating

Goyenda Junior Review: Teenage detective solves the "perfect murder"

The premise

Bikram (Rwitobroto), a school kid has a natural talent of deduction. Investigating Officer Sanjoy Banerjee (Santilal) discovers and utilizes his talent well to solve a murder mystery, which they called a perfect murder. 

Misthtanno Samrat (King of Confectioners) Dibyendu Bagchi’s Dibyendu collapses and dies in his surprise birthday party. Autopsy indicates no anomaly, however, Detective Sanjoy Banerjee believed it could be a murder. While investigating, he finds his death is what is termed as a perfect murder in the language of criminal science. He consults Bikram who finds inconsistency in the party footage on television. 

Performances

Goyenda Junior is a whodunit thriller. Santilal did a splendid job as a police officer and as the cool father of Bikram’s crush, Tuki (Anusha Viaswanathan). Rwitobroto as Bikram, bright school kid was the right choice. Among the others, Krishnendu Adhikary, Asita Sen Mitra, and Prantik Banerjee did a commendable job.

Direction, script, and others

The best part of the movie is effortless chemistry between Sanjoy, played by Shantilal, and Bikram played by Rwitobroto. The father-son simply wins the movie. There are some excellent scenes featuring them and Mainak deserves accolades for utilizing these two properly. However, the same cannot be said about the script. The unnecessary baggage that is given to the protagonist cuts down the smooth pace of the film.

Overall, 

The film has some major and minor flaws. However, Goyenda Junior is quite engaging and will be able to keep the triller lovers invested. The idea of introducing an original, teenage detective is refreshing and definitely worth a watch.

Positives 

  • Performances
  • Shantilal-Rwitobroto chemistry
  • Thrilling plot
  • Sleek execution

Negatives

  • Unnecessary backstories 
  • Unwanted faults

Pycker Rating: 3.5
