Season 2 of the Tolly Folly Podcast features a Bengali icon: Byomkesh Bakshi. The various adaptations of Byomkesh, starring some of the best talents of the day, span decades of not just Bengali cinema but also Hindi film and television. Rooted in a uniquely Bengali aesthetic, the Byomkesh murder mysteries are complex sociological constructs that marry pulp with genteel morality.
In Episode One we discuss Satyajit Ray's Chiriyakhana (1967) starring podcast favorite Uttam Kumar. The first cinematic adaptation of the popular series, this is an uneven film that requires multiple viewings to make sense. Join us as we dive deep into the history of this controversial film.
