Coming from a first-time director, it's a smart and fresh effort, but as a whodunnit, it has too many layers to be decipherable.

It's raining sleuths in Tollywood! And they are coming in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes he is Feluda, Arjun or Kakababu for teenagers; at other times he is Byomkesh or Shabor for the adult audience. Riding on this wind, director Mahua Chakraborty introduces another sleuth in the mix — an ageing advocate-cum-detective named Pinakesh Majumder (Sabyasachi Chakraborty), who solves a complicated mystery involving love, betrayal and murder. Coming from a first-time director, it's a smart and fresh effort, but as a whodunnit, it has too many layers to be decipherable.

The film delves into the dark and murky world of fashion and cinema as it shows the inner workings of a fashion magazine called Glamour. Aryan (Parambrata), one of the owners of the magazine, falls victim to a conspiracy that lands him in jail. His fiancee Mona (Parno) leaves him, his best friend doesn't believe him and he also loses the magazine. Only Riya, a TV journalist and Mona's identical twin, has faith in him and hunts down his old professor Pinakesh to save Aryan. As Pinakesh roams around the city solving an extremely complicated mystery with apparent ease, we suffer from an acute sense of deja vu. Why? It's because Sabyasachi as Pinakesh doesn't do anything that he didn't do as Feluda. But that was a Satyajit Ray story, and this isn't — and the difference shows. Even in the case of Parambrata, his decent performance as Aryan is overshadowed by the confusing plot. Parno stands out as the sassy but plain Riya, but doesn't have the swag to be the sexy Mona.

We won't give you any clues, but there's one you can't miss. A particular eyewear brand has invested a lot in the film, which shows in the in-film branding. So, everyone from the lead characters to the smaller ones wears super-fashionable specs (Param wears them in jail too!). That's one mystery you can solve easily as you watch the film.

Nandini's abusive husband might have worked in favour of the film. Rajatava as usual steals every scene he is in. His short role is the only thing that is marginally watchable in this film. Sabyasachi generally plays cop-cum-sleuth roles very well
