Byomkesh Bakshi is an Indian crime drama film on Bengali fictional detective Byomkesh Bakshi released on 13 August 2010.[1] The film is directed by Anjan Dutt. The film spawned three sequels till date titled as Abar Byomkesh, Byomkesh Phire Elo and Byomkesh Bakshi which were released on 23 March 2012, 19 December 2014 and 26 October 2015 respectively.


Byomkesh Bakshi is a Bengali Detective (though he likes to be addressed as Satyanweshi, eng. truthseeker) who takes on another spine-chilling case with Ajit, his friend and sidekick.

The story Adim Ripu starts off with local goon Bantul Sardar offering firearms left behind by departed American WW-II soldiers to Byomkesh and Ajit in their Harrison Road, Kolkata residence. Sardar's departure is quickly followed by the arrival of Miss Nanibala Roy. Ms. Roy has an adopted son Prabhat Roy, who is also the foster-son of rich businessman Anadi Halder. Halder being single lets Ms. Nanibala Roy manages his household.

Halder has two nephews Nimai and Nitai who obviously have ill feelings towards Prabhat in the context of inheritance of Halder's riches. Additionally, Halder had recently blocked Prabhat from marrying a girl he likes, and it is suspected Nimai and Nitai have something to do with this.

Ms. Nanibala Roy is apprehensive about her adopted son's safety.

Anadi Halder is murdered, and the story takes a fascinating turn with an extremely surprising ending.[2]
