Mukhosh (2021) Review: Story, Performance & Analysis

In the very opening scene, we saw criminologist Kingshuk (Anirban Bhattacharya) arrive at a University to attend the lecture of David S. Paul (Tota Roy Chowdhury), as he is a big admirer of Paul.

Kingshuk’s wife Rai (Payel De) sometimes helps him in understanding criminal psychology. Just after he joined Kolkata Police, a serial killer was coming into the headlines every day.

The cat-and-mouse chase started to catch the murderer who was just targeting Police Officers. Senior Inspector Kaberi (Chandreyee Ghosh) and her team including Adrish Burman (Anirban Chakrabarti), and Nandini Sen (Madhurima Ghosh) started working on the case.

While looking for a hacker, Kingshuk found Tab (Nilanjan Ghoshal) whose expertise in hacking impressed Kaberi. It became more gripping as the story progressed and included a twist in the climax, where Sohini Sarkar arrives for a guest appearance.

Web series like “Mafia” as well as “Black Widows” showed us a glimpse of director Birsa Dasgupta’s filmmaking styles. His effort in this film towards giving us a different kind of revenge drama deserves so much appreciation.

Anirban Bhattacharya was the show-stealer in this film. His expressions and dialogue deliveries were so good throughout the movie. Tota Roychowdhury and Anirban Chakrabarti were also convincing with their respective characters. 

Payel De, Chandreyee Ghosh, Madhurima Ghosh, Nilanjan Ghoshal, and Kaushik Sen also added valuable contributions to their respective roles.

The psychological thriller Mukhosh is the remake of director Midhun Manuel Thomas’s Malayalam movie “Anjaam Pathiraa”.

What was good about this film?

People are visiting cinema halls again after a long time which is a huge gain. Anirban Bhattacharya’s outstanding performance, Birsa Dasgupta’s direction, Subhankar Bhar’s cinematography, and Nabarun Bose’s background score are the highlights of “Mukhosh”.

The best part of the movie was the conversation between Anirban Bhattacharya & Tota Roy Chowdhury where the former complemented the latter as Feluda but the latter also informed him about being a big fan of Byomkesh Bakshi. Anirban’s expressions and reactions were so real during that conversation.

What was bad about this film?

Tota Roychowdhury and Anirban Chakrabarti’s characters deserved more attention.
