Rewind and Restart .... Introduction of a New FELUDA

FELUDA - The term itself is enough to bring a thrill in every Bengali's heart ... The sharp creation of Ray has been always in a soft corner among children as well as the adults too. Bengali writers have given us enormous number of Detectives and each of them are Legends in their own way to make a secret shelf in our mind ( Please !! I am not including any comparison here. They all are my favorites). But according to me FELUDA has been always in a fame since Ray made the masterpieces like SHONAR KELLA, JOY BABA FELUNATH . Shonar Kella ( The Golden Fortress - made the Jaisalmer Fort so famous that a place inside the fort has been named as Mukul Bari since the movie was released ). 

Let's come to the point which I actually wanted to share. Feluda has been in Movies, Telefilms and Serials, Audio Dramas many times. There have been many Feluda's too to play onscreen. Among all we have always kept in mind that Feluda means either Soumitra Chatterjee or Sabyasachi Chakrabarty .. but this time Sandip Ray has given a real new dimension to Feluda Series. He just opted the first Feluda Novel i.e Badsahi Angti and chose Abir Chatterjee as Feluda ( ^_^ *_* ohh Flattering me ... ♥ Abir Chatterjee) and I seriously loved him as new Feluda. It seemed that Feluda series has taken a new turn and rebooted itself. What I liked is the portrayal of Age. Feluda and Topesh as young as it was written in the story unlike the last few stories we watched before.

Let's have some look at the all Feluda's ... 

Soumitra Chatterjee as Feluda in Sonar Kella

Sabyasachi Chakrabarty as Feluda in Tintoretor Jishu

Sabyasachi Chakrabarty as Feluda in Tele Series Baksho Rohosyo
New Feluda Abir Chatterjee in Badsahi Angti

Even Disney too adopted the stories in animation but I never knew when did they telecast it .. :( 

Even Shashi Kapoor too played Feluda in Kissa Kathmandu Ka, but I haven't got any pictures.

So a small review on Badshahi Angti is here ....

Keeping the circumstances and the plot of today's day in mind Sandip Ray has really maintained the main story line and the plot scenes too were same as the book depicted in the sketches. All the characters suited themselves really well and throughout the movie I had a small overview of the city of Nawabs, Luknow. (smiles)

P.S I have blabbered enough here about Feluda, so if any Non Bengali readers who haven't heard of this and never watched any of the movies then my earnest request to them is to read the stories and to watch the movies once.... you might have had read Sherlock Holmes a lot, but I am sure that these stories will keep you attached with the book in your hands.

Go for Wiki and Amazon. (Oh !! Amazon should pay me something.. I am doing a little promotion for FREE .. Grrr .. LOLZ visit the link for buying the books.)

Sorry for Typos if found ...

  1. My POV, Abir Chatterjee as Byomkesh >>> Abir Chatterjee as Feluda!

    1. Yes ... you are right ... but he is good too as Feluda... Abir has got an amazin personality ..... ♥ him

  2. I heard that the movie is getting good reviews and even earning well. Have heard about the character, it was nice to have some information about it. :-)
