The film comes packed with all the rudiments of a classic murder mystery - a determined detective, a femme fatale, mysterious circumstances and a complex background. A classic whodunit thriller which holds the suspense quite firmly till the end. Also at moments it’s hard to understand few things that might require high intelligence. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy however is a treat to watch, especially for all Sherlock Holmes fans. Don’t miss it!

The film also plays with contrasts to great effect. The characters wear desi outfits of the period, but stylistically the film has the look and feel of a modern international thriller.The eclectic background score composed of contemporary songs and sounds that sound anachronistic but enhance the visuals. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is a cinematic delight that deserves a sustained run in the multiplexes.

Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is a mystery movie that doesn't mystify. All the intricacy in this new film lies in the exquisite art design, the sexy anachronistic soundtrack, and the period detailing; the plot is basic, largely guessable and tragically, never something to marvel at.

This is a film that is put into motion and charged by its men, and its biggest weakness is its leading man: Sushant Singh Rajput plays at being Byomkesh, getting in some well-judged gum-shoeing glee in places, but never quite fills in the outlines.
