Bye Bye Bangkok is on the surface a comedy film involving five married couples whose marital lives have moved beyond initial euphoria. The film tells a humorous tale of innuendos and search of opportunities between the ten people. A film like this is sure to transcend just being a comedy and have shades of a thoughtful creation about relationships and human behavior. Rudranil's character is the chaffeur for Locket's character. Swastika plays a short but very important role in the film. Kanchan Mallick, known widely as a comedian, shows his prowess as a versatile and very capable actor for the first time in this film. The star cast includes Swastika Mukherjee, Rudranil Ghosh, Locket Chatterjee, Shilajit, Anjana Basu, Sonalee Chaudhuri, Kanchana Moitra, Kharaj Mukherjee, Kanchan Mullick, Rajesh Sharma, Neel Mukhopadhyay and Priya Karfa.
