Tfs the video krackjack!

Wow, Dibu is such a good artist! I thought the sketch he made was pretty nice! And I could totally hear him speak about Byomkesh all day!

Video was really interesting , when Dibu was speaking about the difficulties while shooting and praising Sushant, I thought he would say that they were cautious of the dhoti falling off due to the leap hahaha! :P :D

Background music of the video was good!

Wow man! There's so much freshness around this movie.

This project is Dibakar's baby in true sense. He is as enthusiastic as a first timer. LOL

Sushant in one lucky guy. This must have been an amazing learning experience for him. YRF is leaving no stone unturned in promoting this movie. LOL

@Nikita: Agree about the Dhoti part, Dibakar did mention the Dhoti though, that his atheletic hero was very good at taking the leap in that dhoti. LOL

Bengal Noire: Illustrating Dibakar Bannerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy

While trying to bring to life Calcutta during the second world war we turned to principally to a whole archive of work by stalwart illustrators of that age like Narayan Debnath, Pratul Chandra Bandyopadhyay, and Mayukh Choudhury who created original characters like Detective Koushik Roy & Aguntuk. Testament to our ongoing love affair with the thriller and suspense genre are the pages of Shuktara by Deb Sahitya Kutir and Indrajaal Comics, which helped us create the mystery and intrigue that the atmosphere required.

Uniquely different and path breaking for its time these pages set the stage for the lookbook we developed for our most exciting project this year Dibakar Bannerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy. Subrata Gangopadhyay's work on the Kakababu stories for Ananda Publishers and Samir Sarkar's Work for Desh are also part of the frame of reference we used for this project. Lastly we would also like to recognize Bikash Bhattarcharya's influence on the shadow play that we have tried to bring to the project.

Illustrated painstakingly by Bidhan Baidya from Grinning Tree, we hope that this unique never attempted before project will revive interest in the idea of the hand painted poster and draw attention to a lost treasure trove from Bengali literature.

The Many Byomkeshes On Screen 

  • Satyajit Ray's Chiriyakhana (1967) with Uttam Kumar as Byomkesh
  • Manju Dey's Shajarur Kanta (1974) with Satindra Bhattacharya
  • Basu Chatterjee's 1993 Hindi TV series with Rajit Kapur playing the detective
  • Swapan Ghoshal Mogno Mainak (2009) with Subhrajit Dutta in the lead role
  • Anjan Dutt's trilogy with Abir Chatterjee: Byomkesh Bakshi (2010), Abar Byomkesh(2012) and Byomkesh Phire Elo (2014)
  • Rituparno Ghosh's Satyanweshi (2013) with Sujoy Ghosh

***

It was a script Dibakar Banerjee had in mind right after his debut film Khosla Ka Ghosla. As a fan of detective fiction, he grew up reading Sherlock Holmes in Bengali and, of course, every Bengali kid's sleuthing primer, the Feluda stories. However, the one to really tantalise his 12-year-old self the most was the forbidden Byomkesh Bakshi. It was seen as a plunge into the murky, often perverse recesses of the adult mind, not for adolescents and hence out of bounds. Years later, it's precisely this mature' quality that grabbed Dibakar the filmmaker"lurking danger, an imminent sense of doom, understated violence and the sexual allure of women'.

The genteel investigator has been wildly popular amongst Bengali readers. But, for long, his only significant appearance on film had been in Satyajit Ray's Chiriyakhana (1967) with the inimitable Uttam Kumar playing Byomkesh, and Basu Chatterjee's popular Hindi TV series in the '90s, with Rajit Kapur in the lead. Byomkesh piqued cinematic interest from 2009 onwards (see graphic), which reached its peak at the turn of 2014, with Anjan Dutta's third film of a trilogy, Byomkesh Phire Elo, out in the theatres and Saibal Mitra's Shajarur Kanta and Dibakar's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy set to roll early this year. "Byomkesh mania was unleashed with the interest shown in him by both Anjan Dutta and Rituparno Ghosh," says Saibal. Interestingly, the couple of times that Byomkesh has ventured out of Bengali on to Hindi, he has been helmed by Bengali directors.

Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay wrote 32 Byomkesh stories between 1932 and 1970, with one story remaining incomplete at the time of his death. Dibakar has read and bought the rights to all the stories in all the languages other than Bengali. His Detective Byomkesh Bakshy distils the character, his world-view, ethos and values as he evolved through 38 years. What he wouldn't reveal is which specific books the film is based on. "That's the mystery the viewer will have to solve on viewing the film," he says. What he does tell you, however, is that his Byomkesh is a callow 24-year-old"on his first case, vulnerable, inexperienced and prone to making mistakes. "It's about his origin. Why he became a detective instead of a clerk or a professor. Why he jumped into the unknown than play safe. It's a detective you would feel for," he says. The reason why he picked the "understated, low-key" young star Sushant Singh Rajput. In shockingly stark contrast is Saibal's 60-year-old Byomkesh, played by the seasoned Dhritiman Chatterjee. "Others have always perceived him as a young man. Dhritiman is the way I see Byomkesh," he says.

There is yet another count on which the two films stand poles apart. Shajarur Kanta is set in today's Calcutta while Dibakar places his tale in 1943, in the blacked out, panic-ridden city cowering under the threat of Japanese bombs. For Dibakar, it's the atmosphere and the sense of time and space in the Byomkesh books that is unparalleled. "He subtly weaves in time and place into the plot, organically connects them without making it seem like a history lesson," he says. Something he wanted to attempt as a filmmaker. He sets the film in war-time Calcutta when, as he puts it, "it was a far more exciting and interesting, thriving and kickass, heterogenous and cosmopolitan city than it is today; when Chinatown was more widespread; when it was a huge shipping port and a flourishing business centre. All kinds of exciting adventures were happening. It was the conduit for the Burma opium. There were the African drug gangs called Kafri". The people, however, were as slick, smart, vicious and diabolical then as they are today. "The period and historical context might change but people don't," says Dibakar.

Whatever be the individual interpretations, there's unanimity on the intellectual depth of Sharadindu's work. "He is socially oriented. The division of Bengal, riots, political disturbances all lurk in the background of the sleuthing," says Saibal. He calls Byomkesh a "thinking man's detective and social scientist". According to actor-director Kaushik Sen, who plays one of the prime suspects in Anjan Dutta's latest Byomkesh film, Sharadindu's stories are not just about a private detective. "They reflect the social, political and economic climate of the times," he says.

For Dibakar, making the film has been about reliving his teen years. "It's a yarn I have enjoyed telling the audience. It's also me telling a story to myself," he says. As a filmmaker, Dibakar admits to always having had problems going back to watching his own films because of the mistakes that leap out of the screen. Not so with this one. "It's a film that makes me forget I made it," he says.

One mystery still gnaws at our minds: why the Bakshi with a y'? For typographical balance, says the NID-trained graphic designer. "The i' at the end feels too thin, y' is a stronger alphabet," he says. One that captures the film's grainy, time-trapped feel and the audacity of its sleuth.

R Balki to Dibakar Banerjee: Hit directors are back in action

SUBSCRIBE BREAKING NEWS ALERT

A number of films are lined up for release this year, but among those that are most eagerly anticipated are the comeback films of eight directors who haven't had releases in the last couple of years.

Dibakar Banerjee returns with his Detective Byomkesh Bakshy featuring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role.

R Balki's Shamitabh and Sriram Raghavan's Badlapur will hit screens first. Dibakar Banerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, Anees Bazmee's Welcome Back, Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do and Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo are all on the cards, along with Rahul Dholakia's Raees, and two films for Kabir Khan " Phantom, and later, Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

Excited by the line-up, trade experts say they have high expectations from these films. "Sooraj definitely comes to mind first; he is the man who gave us Salman Khan, and made two of his biggest blockbusters. With them teaming up after 16 years, their collaboration is the most awaited movie of the year," says trade analyst Atul Mohan. 

Trade expert Amod Mehra has a similar take. He says, "I would pick Sooraj's film in terms of the expected revenue, but in terms of entertainment and content, Kabir's films are my pick, because there's always an underlying message, along with plenty of suspense and action in them. Zoya and Dibakar's latest films are also eagerly awaited."

For Mohan, Balki's next will also be interesting. "We have a great storyteller among us, and he is repeatedly raising the bar. Balki working on a script for years means it is a film to look forward to," he says. 

Bazmee, whose comeback film is a sequel to his 2007 hit, Welcome, says, "I've been getting good feedback from my cast and technicians. It feels special to have a new release." 

Dibakar adds, "I didn't even notice its been that long. I haven't been able to breathe, given the extensive research we have done in the last two years."
