Byomkesh Bakshi is one of the most well known fictional character in India. A couple of films and even a TV series have been made on the detective from Bengal. With streaming platforms looking for newer content, HoiChoi, the app, has launched a web series that introduces a whole new Byomkesh Bakshi to audiences.

What’s WOW: Byomkesh Bakshi is one of the better produced web series. The performances are great and the stories are true to the original Byomkesh Bakshi series.  Kudos to the people handling the production for creating the right ambience for a period piece. Anirban Bhattacharya is quite good as the lead and titular 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 – and we can only guess how the supporting cast will be.

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

You can watch the series on HoiChoi App
