Video: Trailer Launch of Bengali Film Bidaay Byomkesh
The trailer of the upcoming Bengali film Bidaay Byomkesh was released in the presence of director Debaloy Bhattacharya, Abir Chatterjee, Sohini Sarkar, Bidipta Chakraborty, Rupankar Bagchi and others.
The trailer starts off showing 1932, the birth of a Satyanweshi and names a few Byomkesh stories by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay like ‘Raakter Daag’, ‘Shajarur Kanta’, ‘Chiriyakhana’, ‘Banhi Patanga’, ‘Chorabali’, etc ending with a Byomkesh Shomogro book lying open. Cut to 2018, a man enters a police station with a bloody knife claiming to have committed a murder. The inspectors call an aged Byomkesh Bakshi (Abir Chatterjee) up to tell him that the mysterious man is his son, DC Abhimanyu Bakshi (Joy Sengupta). Byomkesh and his daughter-in-law (Bidipta Dasgupta) rush to the station while being followed by paparazzi. The pain and anguish seem to be overburdening Byomkesh Bakshi, who does not know if he can save his son. This is understood because he keeps visualising his late best friend and partner, Ajit (Rahul Banerjee) and his late wife, Satyabati (Sohini Sarkar) who asks him “How will you save my khoka (son)?”
Thus, Byomkesh decides to seek help from his grandson, Satyaki Bakshi (also played by Abir Chatterjee). Will Satyaki be able to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy? Or will Byomkesh have to work on his grey cells to save his son?
Speaking at the event, Abir Chatterjee said “I won’t reveal much about the film but all I can say is no one is biding adieu to Byomkesh. One will have to watch the film to find out what actually happens. One of the biggest challenges was getting the make-up complete as the old Byomkesh. I was very cranky and irritable then. When I played Satyaki next, I made it up for the other cast members”.
Sohini Sarkar who plays Satyabati and also Satyaki’s friend in the film was excited about the film. “I have played Satyabati many times but playing this new character is a great challenge indeed. My co-artists have been extremely helpful and funny. When they are not acting, they are always cracking jokes” added the actress.
Bidaay Byomkesh is slated to release on 20th July of 2018.
