Here's why Dibakar Bannerjee doesn't want purists to watch Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
Dibakar Banerjee is on a high. Detective Byomkesh Bakshi! is making the right noises and people are psyched to watch it on the big screen. But he cautions purists to stay away from it.
The only memory of Byomkesh Bakshi that the audience today has is of Rajit Kapoor solving mysteries in Doordarshan serial Byomkesh Bakshi until now. For Bengalis, he is all about Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay's creation of a sleuth who is unlike any detective.He doesn't hunt murderers...he unearths truth! Guess that made Dibakar issue a warning that if they are going to watch the film with the novels in mind, they might not be pleased.
Well, if you think that disclaimer is going to pardon you of any discrepancies that might arise in the story owing to cinematic liabilities, you are mistaken Dibakar.When you are crediting Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay for the stories, it is your responsibility to make sure non-Bengali speaking audience warms up to this literary genius from West Bengal. This is their introduction to his brilliant work. Should you digress?
