We loved the 1940’s groove of Calcutta Kiss from Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! when it first hit and now we can say we love it even more now that we have seen the video! It features the super talented Lauren Gottlieb who jives and jitterbugs to the beat in this footloose-with-a-flair number.
Composed by Madboy/Mink (Imaad Shah & Saba Azad) a cool clarinet completely sets the music apart and when you add in the acoustic guitar, synthesizer and drum machine set to interesting Raj era laden lyrics you have a song which makes you want to move.
With glimpses of the film, this video is awash with a delightful and innovative black and white blend with a dash of colour that will make you re-imagine a 1940s period club with a contemporary vibe!
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is based on Saradindu Bandyopadhyay’s well-known and successful fictional detective, Byomkesh Bakshy and is a contemporary interpretation of Calcutta during the 1940’s. This first of its kind detective film is an adventure thriller mired in deep political intrigue. A young, astute and intelligent Byomkesh, fresh out of college, pits himself against a mega world villain, depending more on his intuition and instinct rather than concrete proof, to solve the case, sometimes overstepping the law if needed.
Yash Raj Films is proud to present a Dibakar Banerjee Film, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
