Web Series: Byomkesh Bakshi


Byomkesh Bakshi fans have something to cheer about. The sought-after fictional character apart from getting featured in some films and a TV series has now appeared in a web series launched by HoiChoi the movie app.

What’s WOW: Byomkesh Bakshi can boast of a good production attempt for a web series. The acting has been great and the stories are true to the original Byomkesh Bakshi series.  A proper ambiance has been created for a period piece. Anirban Bhattacharya is quite good as the lead character. Playing such a seminal character wouldn’t be easy – with the audiences already knowing two other actors who have played the same character, but Anirban does it well. Subrat Datta also portrays his character well, that of Ajit, the man who remained with Byomkesh while he solved all the mysteries. While these are the main characters in the series, we will be seeing newer characters played by other actors throughout the series.

What’s Blah: The duration of an hour could be too long for short films and web series fans.

Parting Shot: Byomkesh Bakshi is a well-made series that has the right ingredients to keep an audience hooked.

Cast: Anirban Bhattacharya, Subrat Datta
