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

  • "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."

  • 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.

  • Rajput immerses himself as Bakshy and comes out on top, but the film itself never manages to soar, despite threatening to do so many times.

    June 6, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Although Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! works hard on creating a convincing setting for Byomkesh to make his mark, the characters are mostly under-written and the central mystery lacks tension and a sense of imminent danger.

    June 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A complex murder mystery that keeps the audience guessing right to the end.

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.
