The film is touted as a thriller, but thanks to the poor editing there is little of that thrill left by the time the end credits roll.

Based on Saradindu Bandopadhyay's Byomkesh Bakshi novel Sajarur Kanta, the story revolves around a killer whose murder weapon is a porcupine quill.

Rajit Kapur, Uttam Kumar, Abir Chatterjee, Sujoy Ghosh, Sushant Singh Rajput and now Dhritiman Chatterjee with Jisshu U Sengupta in the line - when Saradindu Bandopadhyay created the sleuth Byomkesh Bakshi, he would never have imagined that so many actors would be eager to play the character over the years. Though the audience has been welcoming enough, the last five Byomkesh Bakshis have appeared on screen in the last five years. You could call it a Byomkesh glut — a young Byomkesh solved Benimadhab's murder on screen just a few days ago, and a younger avatar speaking in Hindi will hit the screens in a few days. So how does Dhritiman's superannuated incarnation match up?

Sajarur Kanta , the original story, is a readers' favourite and Saradindu, being a scriptwriter himself, handled the story like a film's plotline. Here, though, Saibal Mitra has given his imagination a free run in the name of turning the plot into a contemporary story. As a result, the motive, characters, denouement and circumstances are all changed. What we are served with is a three-hour yawn fest.

Konkona as Deepa and Indraneil as Debasish have done a decent job. Their chemistry is crackling but the script doesn't allow the romance to bloom. Moreover, Dhritiman's Byomkesh is quite far removed from the character we know, speaking English with a British accent and effecting theatrical expressions and dramatic entrances. Kaushik Sen's Prabal is intense but falls victim to a poor script. The film is touted as a thriller, but thanks to the poor editing there is little of that thrill left by the time the end credits roll.
