if you saw any it was understood that they came from the more progressive Brahmo families” Chandra said Research for the film involved gathering images of Calcutta from 1890s to 1950s As they soon realised to set the scene for the film Banerjee’s team would have to turn into detectives From the clues in Bandopadhyay’s text they had to rebuild the scene almost 85 years later in a city that had changed drastically Not just the landscape the names of streets and neighbourhoods had changed “We spent a long time trying to look for a boarding house that would fit the description of the one on Harrison Street where Byomkesh lived during his college years Then one day we received a call from the second-generation executor of Saradindu’s works saying that he had found it Having known the author personally he had tracked down the boarding house on Harrison Street where Saradindu lived and it exactly matches the one in the text” said Banerjee The crew also visited Vidyasagar College on Kali Bari Road in north Kolkata where Bandhopadhyay studied Byomkesh goes to a college closely modelled on the author’s alma mater The four-storied building though looked rather new Though it did fill out a few details for the production design team Banerjee ended up rejecting it as a possible location In Byomkesh’s college life Banerjee also found the anchor for the story he was seeking A young man of 23 Byomkesh is unsure about himself and what he wants to do — it is an aspect that Banerjee could relate to and one that helped him craft the narrative It made him look at Byomkesh beyond the stereotype of a detective and view him as a character “Detective is what he does but who he is adds to how he does it Is he shy and hesitant Or confident and a show-off These aspects will make him relatable to the audience as the film will also be Byomkesh’s coming-of-age story” said the 44-year-old director To do so it was important Banerjee said to shed the baggage of nostalgia that most period subjects come with Rather than a rose-tinted view of rajbaris and beautiful Bengali women the film is about a young man exposed to the crime and desolation rampant on the streets of Calcutta in the 1940s The filter they needed to use was noir “Traditional noir films were made around the time of WWII and were either pulp literature or detective stories They emerged from the sense that the world wasn’t such a great place; they were essentially pessimistic They were based on the Oedipus tale where the hero while trying to resolve a problem becomes a part of it without realising it In the process he faces his first fear and re-experiences his traumatic past” said Andritsakis who said he would use camera techniques of classic noir films for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy Through Banerjee’s detailed discussions with Andritsakis during the recce followed by extensive storyboarding a template for the film’s lighting and angles emerged The Greek cinematographer who worked with Banerjee in both Love Sex Aur Dhokha and Shanghai said “Noir films are usually set in a gritty and transitional environment where different kinds of people are pushing their own agendas so the play of light and shadows is used to good effect We can do the same with this film and allow the viewers to experience the same fear that Byomkesh is going through” An old jute mill by the Hooghly dating back to the 1920s functions as a godown The massive facade with a bevy of trucks parked in the front barely revealed the view that lay beyond A walk down the grassy path brought one to the river The two banks were like mirror images an old-fashioned nauka with jute sails drifting in between The location seemed perfect for the scene Banerjee had in mind — till he sat down on the ledge with his sketchbook and charted out the shots Soon the team realised that lighting would be better on the opposite bank The fence along the river as well as the wall between the two wings of the factory would have to be brought down for the duration of the shoot and then rebuilt Hunting for locations turned out to be rigorous Every possible location the crew came across or heard about had to be checked out later The storyboarding of scenes at each possible location led to an animated deconstruction of its pros and cons a time-consuming process For every lead the crew found there were an equal number of setbacks At Saheb Kuthi ghat the team arrived prepared to storyboard only to realise that it was high tide and the spot they wished to use as the entry point for a scene was under water At lunch in restaurants even as they dug into authentic Bengali fare the director was on the look out for “interesting” faces — lay people who Banerjee felt may make good secondary characters Photographs were clicked and numbers exchanged The diners partly star-struck and partly flattered were only too glad to oblige Who wouldn’t want to share the screen with detective Byomkesh Bakshi (The shoot for the film began last week) For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related News
