Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! stumbles considerably because of its simplistic plotting

A murder mystery classic

Blending opium trade and independence struggle, he takes us back in time when Calcutta was under Japanese air attacks, Chinese gangs were lurking in the corner and Allied forces were trying to hold on
The Hindu
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is a thrilling murder mystery that leaves you awestruck and giddy with pleasure. A scrumptious delight of a film that has the repeat viewing value of a classic, missing it would be a crime only Byomkesh could solve.

The film came in with a lot of hype and expectations and it must be said that this is a disappointment. The reason for that is the slow narration and dragged scenes. The first half goes in a very mild manner and lacks energy

All the same, if you are looking for something different, DBB is something that you can venture out to see.
Glam Sham
Brilliantly crafted with eye popping accuracy and magic that transposes and transfixes between 1940’s and 2015 like a twilight zone done with sonic elan. Yash Raj and Dibaker Bannerjee’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!’ is aesthetically inventive and innovative Indian whodunit that comes with a strong contemporary sound of music that’s new for the producer and the director.

Watch it for rare and fantastic suspense flick experience
