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 Three, our season finale, we head to Kolkata to look at contemporary Bengali adaptations - of which there is a surfeit. Our main review is Arindam Sil's Har Har Byomkesh starring Abir Chatterjee but we also discuss a selection of other adaptations such as the one directed by Rituparno Ghosh as well as the several directed by Anjan Dutt which includes one starring Jisshu Sengupta as Byomkesh.
