Critic Reviews for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (5)

  • Adventure fails to permeate the listlessness of this overlong, self-indulgent would-be thriller.

    April 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Dibakar's reinvention of the Sharadindu Bandopadhyay detective is a ponderously crafted artifice rather than the handiwork of an off-the-cuff talent.

    April 10, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is a film that filled me to the brim. It is the kind of film that I will recall and savour, flaws and all.

    April 8, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's fascinating to see Byomkesh evolve as the case does. He sees the heart of darkness and emerges wiser, more mature and, ironically, a tad more joyful. It's a demanding role and Sushant Singh Rajput more than delivers.

    April 8, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "How do middle-class people like us stand up for our country?" Byomkesh asks Ajit. The teasing answer: "We don't. We go to the movies."

    April 6, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is good, but there's no real anchor in the film on which I can pin its success, and perhaps that is a marker that its success isn't all that successful.

Audience Reviews for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy

  • May 31, 2015
    "A complex murder mystery that keeps the audience guessing right to the end." ~ one of the Critic Reviews here. It surprises me that a handful of other critics too have expressed this sort of feeling. Guessing right to the end? Honestly? No offense, as ever, but if you've watched a couple of detective/suspense movies (or read such books), you should be able to figure out the villain quite easily within minutes even before the interval. The plot and the performances are too good to be rated any more than 1/5.
