The Anjan Dutt directed film BYOMKESH BAKSHI (2015) is based on a story KAHEN KABI KALIDAS by Saradindu Bandopadhyay. The film centers around a murder and workers unrest in a coal mining town in Bihar. It is rightly paced for a thriller and sustain interest till the end.

Many of the characters have shades of grey. This makes for an absorbing fare and the unusual ending raises it above the average fare.

The camerawork is good and the suspenseful sequences are handled competently. In the acting department Jishu Sengupta in the titular role and Saswata Chatterjee as his assistant Ajit are first rate. Kunal Sen, Deb Dutt and others act in supporting roles. Music by Neel Dutt.

Rating: 3.7 out of 5
