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! 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.Subscribe to our Upodcast: Bollywood Edition feed so you don’t miss Amrita, Sujoy and Beth’s new limited Podcast series by clicking here. Follow and subscribe to Amrita's Youtube Book channel by going here!Find us on Apple Podcasts! and Stitcher! and AudioBoom! and iHeartRadio! and Spotify! and CastBox! Follow us on Twitter!

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, 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.

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.

Tolly Folly Ep 1 - Agni Pariksha Tolly Folly is a brand-new limited run podcast about Bengali film, anchored by Sujoy, Beth, and Amrita. The first series focuses on the legendary movies of Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen. Episode One is on Agni Pariksha (1954), one of their earlier efforts that was later remade into Chhoti si Mulaqat, Uttam’s Hindi launch. 
Join us as we dive into their undeniable chemistry, their vastly different acting styles, our favorite bananapants moments, the presentation of child marriage  in Bengali film (including perhaps its most haunting depiction in Satyajit Ray’s Samapti starring Soumitra Chatterjee and Aparna Sen), and how this movie traveled to Hindi.
