When we heard about the possibility of a Byomkesh Bakshi film, we were a little apprehensive. After all, it isn’t easy to breathe life into such an iconic character. However, any doubts we had were cleared by the first trailer for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
Popularly known as India’s answer to Sherlock Holmes, Byomkesh will be played by Sushant Singh Rajput. In the film, we will see the detective take on his very first case. The quest to find the missing man, however, turns out to be more complicated than he could’ve imagined. Add to this the unease caused by World War II, and you have the perfect recipe for a riveting plot!
From everything we’ve seen so far, it’s safe to say that Detective Byomkesh Bakshy will be a ride from start to finish. As much as we’d like to tell you what you can expect, we can’t. It’s in the tagline – Expect the Unexpected.
The trailer also gives us a glimpse into the soundtrack, which promises to be remarkable. The track Life’s a B@!$% by Joint Family is featured in the trailer, giving it an old-school film noir feel.
Though we’re excited for all aspects of the film, it’s Sushant Singh Rajput‘s performance that we’re looking forward to the most! He has come a long way from his Kai Po Che days, hasn’t he? If you don’t believe us, watch the trailer for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy here:
