      off-late Vishal Bhardwaj is too much in love with himself and his movies have been more indulgent rather than a good cinema…i hope this is not the case here..

  2. Agreed. Im looking forward to the locations here as well. Im glad vishal went with shahid for this, and its exciting to hear irfan has a major role as well.

  4. Shahid looks good. I was wondering at the result after all that talk about him having to shave his head.

  6. Byomkesh Bakshi is what i am super interested in.

    • skeptical about Byomkesh.. unless the physical setting of the stories (which is period at this point) is done enough justice. Not to mention the humor. The Doordarshan production for instance was serviceable on its own but not a patch on the original works.

        YRF and Dibakar has been working over a year to create perfect look of Calcutta of 1942 as the film is based in that year. So I think the physical should be good enough.

          • Sushant Singh Rajput is a bit too young and fresh-faced for Byomkesh; hard for me to imagine the guy in Shudh Desi Romance is a good fit for this, although he isn’t a bad actor.

        • Q: Bannerjee is depicting the ‘origins’ of Byomkesh here (how he became a private eye etc) and that was one of the reasons why he cast a younger actor.

          • so in other words it’s a story not written by Saradindu? I assumed it was Satyanveshi (which was also the Rituparno film recently) but you’re suggesting a prequel?

      • Satyam: Have you seen any film on Byomkesh? There was a recent one helmed by Rituparno Ghosh, “Satyanweshi’, which had Sujoy Ghosh in the lead, but as far as I have heard this hasn’t been liked (And I don’t even like Chiriyakhana all that much. Thought Sonar Kella was far better than this). Also I am dying to read the English translations on the stories (I have read the Feluda ones. But from my experience of the t.v. series I always found Byomkesh the more interesting character. Rajit Kapoor made for a fantastic Byomkesh).

        • Ghosh isn’t the right director for this sort of subject anyway. he tends to be too slow to begin with. On the film he did that’s the first Byomkesh story. One of the very good ones in fact. Chiriyakhana is the one film that Ray made under pressure. And yes though it’s watchable it’s not a particularly good film. Ray felt that a certain kind of ‘exposition’ worked well in books but couldn’t be translated onto the screen effectively and I think he was right. Most of the Christie films also fail for the same reason. Sonar kella was enjoyable but still Ray wasn’t completely able to match himself as writer here! Then again I don’t much care for Ray in color barring exceptions.

        • Rajit Kapoor was fine if a bit earnest. But again the big problem here was there is no Calcutta in these productions. Not surprising because Doordarshan didn’t have the budget to do period evocations of the city. But this is an issue because the author felt that his books weren’t primarily mysteries but cultural histories of Calcutta. Also there’s a great deal of humor in the stories which rarely comes through on screen. For all this the Doordarshan series works fine stand-alone though I’d say it’s more engaging than gripping.

          • I do agree with the period setting bit. Also this bit sounds interesting-

            “Unusually, one name leaps to both Sujoy Ghosh and Anjan Dutt’s minds when asked which Hindi film actor could play Byomkesh: Abhishek Bachchan. “He looks like somebody who thinks before he answers,” explained Sujoy. “And that’s what all detectives should be like: think before they talk, don’t shoot their mouths off.” “He has it, that sharp, tall, very interesting look. I mean imagine how good a young Amitabh would look in a dhoti,” said Dutt. (Basu Chatterjee, asked the same question, said he’d take Rajit Kapur all over again.”

            I think I agree with this. Always thought both he and his dad made for good Bengalis. Especially liked Abhishek in KHJJS.

            On that note, you should check out Chittagong if you haven’t- found it far better than the Gowatikar film. Was much more kinetic and I thought the subject matter especially required this particular quality. Also think this one was S-E-L’s best work since Johnny Gaddaar.

      • AsliSamar Says:

        For the first part, Dibakar will focus on how the Byomkesh Bakshi is just a graduate student and how he ends up becoming a detective and then possibly the case. Dibakar refuses to reveal any story for this and future films of BB as everyone can guess the villain and suspense will be gone before 1st show.

  10. Yeah goldie-that’s the name of the guy-sushant something…
    I saw few minutes of shudh desi romance few weeks ago..
    Feel this guy is a poor mans cross between ranbir & hritik (albeit at the lower end of the domain as of now)
    He has potential and I had predicted he should get plum projects
    Just jeard about this dibakar film from u

    Wait–if I’m not wrong(& I’m rarely working!) –this guy should get more big films …
    Btw do check out shudh desi romance –even I need to ‘complete’ it
