Detective Byomkesh Bakshy Story & Total Number of Screen
Indian audience will be in for a treat this summer as “Detective Byomkesh Bakshy” hits screens this Friday. The film is based on detective character Byomkesh Bakshy created by Bengali writer Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay. Director Dibaker Banerjee said that the film connects to the Indian audience as Byomkesh is an original Indian character, but international audience can also relate the movie with “Sherlock Holmes” series. In the British crime drama series, Sherlock is accompanied by his friend Dr Watson and in the movie also we will see Byomkesh Bakshy accompanied by Ajit, who is his assistant-cum-chronicler. Ajit assists Byomkesh in every case and follows him almost everywhere. However, the director clarified last year that Byomkesh Bakshy is not Sherlock Homes. “Somebody told me that Byomkesh Bakshi is like the Sherlock Holmes stories… I think it’s ridiculous. In that case why will I buy the rights of Byomkesh Bakshi, why would I buy the rights of 31 stories from Byomkesh Bakshi series. There is no logic. Byomkesh is an original Indian character and with a whole new connect to the Indian audience which a Sherlock Holmes cannot have because he is not from India,“ Banerjee told IANS last year.
