Byomkesh Hatyamancha Movie Review: Story, Performance & Analysis

The story of Byomkesh Hatyamancha is based on Saradindu Bandopadhyay’s incomplete novel Bishupal Bawdh. Arindam Sil and Padmanabha Dasgupta completed the story to make it a good mystery thriller.

The narrative is about the Bengal of 1971 and every scene including the Naxalite movement is brilliantly captured by Anirban Chatterjee.

Byomkesh (Abir Chatterjee), his wife Satyabati (Sohini Sarkar), assistant Ajit (Suhotra Mukhopadhyay), and a good neighbour Pratulbabu (Padmanabha Dasgupta) were watching Keechak Badh at Gandharba Theatre in Hatibagan.

The sudden death of one of the famous actors Bishu Pal (Kinjal Nanda) left everyone stunned there. Byomkesh was handed over the case to find out the murderer of Bishu Pal. The rest of the story revolves around the investigation Byomkesh did to reach out to the killer.

Performance is the most substantial part of Byomkesh Hatyamancha. The on-screen chemistry of Abir Chatterjee as Byomkesh and Sohini Sarkar and Satyabati has always been a pleasure to watch. Paoli Dam as Sulochana delivered a magnificent performance.

Suhotra Mukhopadhyay as Ajit & Anusha Viswanathan as Somaria also looked convincing. Padmanabha Dasgupta & Loknath Dey provided good support with their respective characters.

The story lacks major twists to keep you engaged throughout but the brilliant performance of Abir Chatterjee won’t allow you to leave your seat. Director Arindam Sil’s execution is appreciable but Suhotra Mukhopadhyay and Paoli Dam’s characters deserved more focus. 

Byomkesh Hatyamancha is Director Arindam Sil’s 4th installment after Har Byomkesh, Byomkesh Pawrbo, and Byomkesh Gotro and the main similarity in all these 4 movies is the presence of Abir Chatterjee as Byomkesh and Sohini Sarkar and Satyabati.

As per Arindam Sil, Abir Chatterjee plays the character of Byomkesh Bakshi in the best possible way. And this is one comment that I find very true. Over time the Bengali film industry has been many actors portraying the character of Byomkesh Bakshi but Abir Chatterjee has that X factor in him that makes him stand out from the rest.

Final Words:

Byomkesh Hatyamancha is a mystery thriller that deserves your attention because of the brilliant performances of the actors. Though the story has many loopholes, overall it is good for a one-time watch.
