 Kiriti, like Byomkesh and Feluda, is an iconic Bengali character. Kiriti O Kalo Bhromor sounds the bugle for his journey on the silver screen, but we will wait to see how the character evolves in intellect and acuity.

Nihar Ranjan Gupta, a doctor by profession, met Agatha Christie during his stay in England. Deeply moved by the charm of her whodunits, Gupta created his detective character, Kiriti Roy, with care. With Kalo Bhromor the rahasyobhedi (one who unveils a mystery) Roy was presented to Bengali readers back then. The movie Kiriti O Kalo Bhromor, on the other hand, is Anindya Bikas Datta’s creation — loosely based on Gupta’s thriller.

Like James Moriarty is to Sherlock Holmes, Kalo Bhromor is the arch-rival of Kiriti. From the beginning of the film, we see that Kolkata is under the threat of Kalo Bhromor — a drug lord, and Moonlight Killer — a serial murderer who strikes on full moon nights. Industrialist Dibraj Mehta (Pradip Mitra) seeks Kiriti’s (Indraneil Sengupta) help to find Subrata (Samadarshi Dutta), the abducted nephew of his business partner. At a party at Mehta’s house, Kiriti meets his love interest Krishna (Arunima), the industrialist’s daughter. Soon after this, Mehta gets killed. By interval, we know the culprit and the film picks up pace in the second half.

Kiriti O Kalo Bhromor has many interesting bits: a couple of good chase sequences, a Hannibal Lecter-ian performance, many momentary sparks from side actors (Mr Mehta and Inspector Sen, played Ratan Sarkhel) and some beautiful camerawork. But from the editing to the story flow, there are some follies too. For example, Kiriti sees a murder and runs after the killer, but brings out his gun only after the killer slashes his arm. Why wait till then? Also, the audience will surely demand an explanation for the sloppy 20 minutes at the end.

The biggest takeaway from the film is an outstanding performance by Kaushik Sen. Paying a meticulous homage to Hannibal Lecter from Silence of the Lambs, he is truly the showstopper of the film. Indraneil Sengupta as Kiriti may seem a bit insipid, but he maintains a gorgeous screen presence. Arunima and Samadarshi have screen time, but not much to do.

Kiriti, like Byomkesh and Feluda, is an iconic Bengali character. Kiriti O Kalo Bhromor sounds the bugle for his journey on the silver screen, but we will wait to see how the character evolves in intellect and acuity.
