A woman is found dead in her apartment and the family's dog is suspected of killing her.
You might've heard about Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot or, closer home, Byomkesh Bakshi but get ready to know Vyankatesh Bhonde now. The protagonist of 'Bho Bho' is an ex-policeman-turned-private-detective and an animal lover. His moment under the spotlight comes when he is handed an unusual case by an insurance company; a case that involves the death of a woman at the hands (or jaws) of her pet dog. The weird case and weirder title is what Bho Bho is about.
The film starts with the death and the deceased's husband (Bhave) stands to earn Rs 1 crore from the insurance company. Bhonde (Damle) is sent to investigate the case and despite everyone pointing fingers at the dog Sandy, Bhonde feels there's something more to the case that what meets the eye. He starts digging, all the while worried about Sandy's well-being and unfolds something that's entirely different from what's on paper in the case files.
While half the industry is busy making love stories and some even trying to ape south films, it is films like these that come as a welcome change. Though not entirely similar, Agatha Christie's story 'Dumb Witness' had a plot revolving around a dog whose chew-toy is said to have accidentally poisoned a woman.
It is a brilliant concept to say the least but it suffers in the execution. Lack of attention to details hampers the progress of the story. Damle's energy is astonishing and he's at his best throughout although you really can't associate him with the character of a detective. The supporting cast has established names and they do well too.
The film scores brownie points in its concept and the portrayal of cute dogs, but with a more gripping narrative, 'Bho Bho' could've been much better.
