Interpreting Byomkesh a calculated risk: Dibakar

As someone who constantly experiments with his films, Indian director Dibakar Banerjee is hopeful that his latest offering Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! will create a space for itself in the audience.

Having lived with the project for a while, Dibakar is relieved now that the movie is garnering good reviews and positive word-of-mouth. “I am going through that stage where I am letting this film live through. You get to know the real value of a film after six months. I don’t lie, I don’t pretend and ‘pretentious cheeze nahi banata’. If that has a value, then Byomkesh will also have a life,” Dibakar told PTI.

“It is a family film, something that can be watched with children. A new set of people are going to watch Byomkesh this week and we will get to know their reaction. I have been to theatres to gauge viewers response and I am happy they are enjoying it. I have used the familiar and mixed it with something new,” he said.
