Synopsis: “CALCUTTA 1943 A WAR – A MYSTERY – and A DETECTIVE” Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is based on the early exploits of India’s first true-blue detective, created by Bengali bestseller writer Saradindu Bandyopadhyay. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the film is set in the Second World War torn Calcutta during the 1940s and follows the first adventure of Byomkesh Bakshy (Sushant Singh Rajput), fresh out of college, as he pits himself against an evil genius who is out to destroy the world. Using his wits against the most villainous arch criminal the world has seen, in a world of murder, international political intrigue and seduction.
It’s 1942 and Calcutta is ruled by the British Raj. Its underworld is ruled by Chinese gangsters smuggling opium from Shanghai. A vicious fight breaks out within one such gang at the Calcutta docks where gangster Yun Gong brutally blinds one rival and is then thought to be killed.
Meanwhile, bright student Byomkesh Bakshy (Sushant) is approached by Ajit Banerjee for help in finding his missing father Bhuvan babu. Initially, Byomkesh refuses and even suggests Bhuvan may be mixed up in dodgy business, at which Ajit angrily slaps him. The same day, Byomkesh’s girlfriend Leela tells him she’s marrying a well-placed chemistry student instead of him.
Byomkesh seeks out Ajit and agrees to take his case. He visits Bhuvan’s lodging home and meets Dr. Guha and Kanai Dao who legally sells opium. He also finds Bhuvan’s beloved paan box is still in his room, hidden by his roommate who’s oddly addicted to the paan masala. Byomkesh is convinced Bhuvan has been killed as his box and money are still in his room.
Byomkesh visits the Sikdar chemical factory, now shut down, where Bhuvan used to work. There he sees film star Angoori taking a swim. She’s amused by him and offers him a ride home. In the car, when he asks if she knows of Bhuvan, she pulls her handbag nervously to herself. In her studio, as she shoots, Byomkesh opens the bag and finds letters from cut-out newspapers, blackmailing the factory owner Sikdar babu, a friend of Angoori’s.
He’s convinced Sikdar has killed Bhuvan when the latter tried to blackmail him. Byomkesh goes back to the factory with Dr. Guha and they pretend to the watchmen that they’ve come to fix a mouse problem. Poking around in the factory, they find Bhuvan’s slashed, decomposed body stuffed into a machine.
