    TOLLY FOLLY SEASON 2 EPISODE 3: HAR HAR BYOMKESH & OTHER BENGALI ADAPTATIONS

    TOLLY FOLLY SEASON 2 EPISODE 3: HAR HAR BYOMKESH & OTHER BENGALI ADAPTATIONS

    Season 2 of the Tolly Folly Podcast features a Bengali icon: Byomkesh Bakshi. The various adaptations of Byomkesh, starring some of the best talents of the day, span decades of not just Bengali cinema but also Hindi film and television. Rooted in a uniquely Bengali aesthetic, the Byomkesh murder mysteries are complex sociological constructs that marry pulp with genteel morality. 

    In Episode Three, our season finale, we head to Kolkata to look at contemporary Bengali adaptations - of which there is a surfeit. Our main review is Arindam Sil's Har Har Byomkesh starring Abir Chatterjee but we also discuss a selection of other adaptations such as the one directed by Rituparno Ghosh as well as the several directed by Anjan Dutt which includes one starring Jisshu Sengupta as Byomkesh.

    TOLLY FOLLY S2 EP2: DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY!

    TOLLY FOLLY S2 EP2: DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY!

    Season 2 of the Tolly Folly Podcast features a Bengali icon: Byomkesh Bakshi. The various adaptations of Byomkesh, starring some of the best talents of the day, span decades of not just Bengali cinema but also Hindi film and television. Rooted in a uniquely Bengali aesthetic, the Byomkesh murder mysteries are complex sociological constructs that marry pulp with genteel morality. 

    In Episode Two we discuss the Hindi adaptations of Byomkesh - mainly Dibakar Banerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! (2015) starring Sushant Singh Rajput but also the TV series starring Rajit Kapoor (1993-97). Although this movie proved controversial amongst Bengalis, it is perhaps the one adaptation that comes closest to the novels' pulp roots. Anchored by excellent performances, a vibrant score, and inspired direction, DBB is perhaps this podcast's favorite Byomkesh movie.

    TOLLY FOLLY S2.E1 SATYAJIT RAY’S CHIRIYAKHANA (1967)

    Season 2 of the Tolly Folly Podcast features a Bengali icon: Byomkesh Bakshi. The various adaptations of Byomkesh, starring some of the best talents of the day, span decades of not just Bengali cinema but also Hindi film and television. Rooted in a uniquely Bengali aesthetic, the Byomkesh murder mysteries are complex sociological constructs that marry pulp with genteel morality. 

    In Episode One we discuss Satyajit Ray's Chiriyakhana (1967) starring podcast favorite Uttam Kumar. The first cinematic adaptation of the popular series, this is an uneven film that requires multiple viewings to make sense. Join us as we dive deep into the history of this controversial film.

    Tolly Folly Ep 3 - Aandhi - Nayak

    Tolly Folly Ep 3 - Aandhi - Nayak

    Tolly Folly, our limited run podcast about Bengali film, anchored by Sujoy, Beth, and Amrita, concludes with this third episode featuring two separate performances by Suchitra Sen in AANDHIi and Uttam Kumar in NAYAK.

    Aandhi (1975) is counted as one of the most successful films helmed by Gulzar and is frequently lauded for the leading performances by Suchitra and Sanjeev Kumar. The movie was a controversial fictionalized take on the life of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and spoke about the difficulties faced by women with ambition in a patriarchal society. 

    Nayak (1966) was a rare Uttam collaboration with Satyajit Ray and is a meditation on celebrity. One of the finest films ever made, Nayak remains relevant to this day and features an incredible performance by Uttam. It also co-stars a wonderful Sharmila Tagore among others. 

    If you liked this run of Tolly Folly, we would love to hear from you. Let us know if you’d like to see this series return and what other films you’d like to see discussed.

    Tolly Folly Ep 2 - Saptapadi - Chaowa Pawa

    Tolly Folly, our limited run podcast about Bengali film, anchored by Sujoy, Beth, and Amrita, is back for its second episode. 

    Join us as we discuss two vastly different performances that live and die on the basis of the famed Uttam-Suchitra chemistry. First up is Saptapadi (1961), a classic melodrama about individual freedom and culture clash that occupies a unique spot in Bengali film. Next is Chaowa Pawa (1959), a breezy remake of the Hollywood classic, It Happened One Night.
