A Feluda-Size Christmas Present for Satyajit Ray Fans

If you’re a fan of Satyajit Ray’s literary work, or Bengali literature, or detective fiction, or all of the above, the name Prodosh Chandra Mitter aka Feluda will definitely spark a bright bulb. Just like Sherlock Holmes, Ray’s primary inspiration for the character of Feluda, the Bengali detective has an assistant. His younger cousin Tapesh Mitter, fondly known as Topshe, who doubles as the narrator, is a nod to Holmes’ companion Dr John Watson. The dynamic duo become a trio after the story Sonar Kella (The Golden Fortress) when bestselling writer Lalmohan Ganguli, who goes by the pseudonym Jatayu, joins them on their adventures. One of Ray’s most beloved literary creations, Feluda is revered equally by children and adults. Feluda has been immortalised on the silver screen by the legendary Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee, who recently passed away, in the films Sonar Kella (1974) and Joi Baba Felunath (1979).

Now, as a Christmas gift for fans, director Srijit Mukerji is all set to reintroduce the fictional sleuth in a series titled Feluda Pherot on the Bengali OTT platform, Addatimes. The series will feature two popular Feluda stories, Chhinomostar Obhishaap (The Curse of the Goddess) and Jawto Kando Kathmandute (The Criminals of Kathmandu), the former of which will be streamed in December. Feluda has been portrayed on-screen by several well-known and respected actors including the eminent Soumitra Chatterjee, Sabyasachi Chakraborty and Abir Chatterjee. Carrying the mantle is popular actor Tota Roy Chowdhury who will be essaying Feluda in the series alongside Kalpan Mitra’s Topshe and Anirban Chakraborty’s Jatayu.

The trailer for the series, which dropped on Saturday, November 21 reveals an exciting glimpse of Chhinomostar Obhishaap, a story revolving around an idiosyncratic family, a travelling circus, its runaway tiger and diaries containing cryptic clues.
