It’s taken director Dibakar Banerjee a couple of years to finally bring Detective Byomkesh Bakshy to celluloid, but the end result has been disappointing.
The film, though technically brilliant, lack depth in it’s performances, especially it’s leading man Sushant Singh Rajput who juts out like a sore thumb.
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy has managed to collect about Rs 04.20 crore nett on Friday (April 03, 2015), on Saturday (April 04, 2015) the film managed about Rs 04.50 crore nett and on Sunday (April 05, 2015) the film collected close to Rs 05.36 crore nett; thus making it a total of about Rs 14.06 crore nett at the end of it’s first weekend.
The film was released in about one thousand two hundred and forty screens in India and has the film being cast well and the pace of the film would have been a bit faster, it would have faired better at the Box Office.
It would be unfair to say that the perforce of the film’s overall Box Office performance has been affected by Furious 7, because the film is not for the masses and does not entertain. The audiences have not liked what they have seen as the film looks very pseudo and wannabe.
Coming to Furious 7, well the film has a huge emotional connect, thanks to Paul Walker and also the fact that it’s an out an out entertainer and is doing a mind blowing business in India.
Next week, April 10, 2015, will see the release of four films - Dharam Sankat Mein, Ek Paheli Leela, Barefoot To Goa and Broken Horses.
It’s going to a tough road ahead for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy and we do hope that the film would be able to recover it’s production cost, though as of now, it looks like a tall order.
Everyone expected a lot from Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, in terms of it's Box Office performance, but then the film has had a poor run at the end of it...1.0
