A karate-kicking Feluda

Not sure how this cartoon version of Satyajit Ray’s famous detective passed me by, but here’s the trailer to Feluda – The Kathmandu Caper.

Set in the mountains of Nepal it’s “a memorable adventure with lots of drama and mystery, laced with subtle humour”, according to DQ Entertainment.

It’s also Feluda’s first-ever animated film, and so perhaps fittingly received its television premiere earlier this year on the Disney Channel India. However, based on the trailer alone, it doesn’t look like the character will bear much resemblance to his portrayal by Soumitra Chatterjee in 1970s Satyajit Ray films like Joi Baba Felunath, which is a shame.

  1. Well, it could be way worse. Even the movies would mess up Feluda–like the movie of Tintorettor Jishu in which the nephew/perpetrator was made into a cheap goonda, instead of the off-the-rails reckless family member. I did enjoy some of the rather podgy, inexpert fight action in Baksho Rohosya. And Joi Baba Felunath was great.

    • I’ve only seen Joi Baba Felunath, but I loved that and will hopefully be able to read the stories in Bengali one day (maybe)
