He feels there is a life threat on him. after the Satyanweshi reaches the hill town with Satyabati (Sohini) and Ajit (Rahul), Satyakam is shot dead.
A classic whodunit thriller which holds the suspense quite firmly till the end. Characters are strong and the suspense build-up is bang on.
Loo break: Unless you want to keep guessing what’s happening next in the loo!
Watch or Not?: I would definitely suggest for them this is a tight mystery with a top-notch execution.
Movie Review: Star Performance :
Abir Chaterjee as Byomkesh Bakshy is darn good and after watching the film you may not be able to see anyone else play Bakshy the same way! His body language, mannerisms are perfect and he is apt as a detective who relies on his honed observation skills and is highly logical.
Arjun Chakraborty as Satyakam is brilliant. His character is highly influential and it is Arjun Chakraborty’s acting prowess that makes it pack a punch on screen.
Sohini Sarkar as Satyavati is charming with her expressive character. She does this role with quite ease.
Rahul Banerjee as Ajit is a delight. Whether it’s a serious scene , banerjee’s timing is superb.
Priyanka Sarkar looks fabulous and saurasini was good.
Anjan Dutt as Satyakam’s father was good.
Movie Review: Direction, Music :
What can I say? Arindam Sil just decides to wow me everytime he takes up a film. He is full of experimentation and I particularly love his descriptive nature of direction.
The background score is different and it somehow works for the film.
Movie Review: The Last Word
This mystery is the one even you would want to solve. Watch it for an amazing story and its even better execution.
Byomkesh Gowtro is a delicious thriller filled with elements that make you rack your brains too.
Three and a half stars!
