complaint only filed to the local police jurisdiction where the incident took place. if it is not possible then a person can register complaint in any nearest police station without mentioning any FIR No. said police station forward the matter to the actual police station jurisdiction.

It is dependent upon what kind of complaint you want to file. However, You can certainly file a complaint case in tour jurisdiction in Kolkata against someone outside of Kolkata if the cause of action is in Kolkata. An FIR can also be lodged in your jurisdiction even if the offence might have commenced outside. So the nature of complaint or case and cause of action is important for determining whether that can be lodged in Kolkata.
