Character development of Feluda[ edit ] Inspiration from Sherlock Holmes[ edit ] Feluda is a big admirer of Sherlock Holmes which he mentions multiple times.
In Kailash Choudharyr Pathar he praises the way Holmes used to draw large conclusions from observations. In Londone Feluda, when Feluda goes to Baker Street, he openly considers Holmes as the "master" Bengali: guru of all private detectives.
Satyajit Ray had deep interests in crime fiction and he read all of Sherlock Holmes fictions in his school days. And when Ray himself started writing on crime fictions, unsurprisingly, the character Sherlock Holmes inspired his writings. Personality of Feluda[ edit ] Prodosh Chandra Mitra, popularly known by his nickname Feluda, first appeared in the eponymous Bengali short story Feludar Goyendagiri Danger in Darjeeling in Despite being a strongly built man adept in martial arts , Feluda relies mostly upon his superb analytical ability and observation skill jokingly referred to as the Magajastra or brain-weapon to solve cases instead of using physical strength or weapons.
He is very choosy about taking up cases and prefers cases that require cerebral effort. He possesses a. However, contemporary s movies based on Feluda stories feature scenes of violence uncharacteristic of the series, where Feluda demonstrates his martial art powers. Feluda is known to be a good sleight-of-hand, and he put that skill to use for solving couple of cases.
He is also good at disguises. Feluda often calls a meeting while solving the mystery, where he cajoles the culprit in admitting their crime. Feluda had a job in bank before his detective career. He finds an avid listener in his cousin Tapesh. Also, he often uses his oratory skill at the climactic scenes to cajole the culprit in confessing his crime.
He is an early riser and is often shown starting his day with exercises and yoga. Contrary to his otherwise healthy lifestyle, Feluda enjoys smoking charminar cigarettes , exercising and chewing betel leaves. His favourite brand of cigarettes is Charminar. He is a connoisseur of delicious foods, popular music and movies, and books. This know-how often comes handy while socialising with people and unravelling mysteries. He always reads about the place he is visiting.
He says it comes in handy sometimes. He is also fond of Tintin , specially his cousin Topshe is a fan of Tintin.
Some of the Feluda stories and films have many references of The Adventures of Tintin. He is also a huge fan of the books by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay and Jim Corbett. Feluda is protective and caring about his cousin, yet he always keeps picking mistakes or humor of or from Topshe.
Topshe, the narrator, greatly admires his brother and loves to be with his adventures. John Watson. Topshe is a smart teenager. In the first story of Feluda series i. Though Feluda often teases his young cousin, he is extremely fond and very protective of him.
Formerly, they all used to live in Tara road, Kolkata. Though not mentioned explicitly, Topshe is good-looking, fair, tall and handsome, as per different illustrations made by Satyajit Ray himself. Just like Feluda, Topshe also used to read lot of books to enhance his knowledge. Topshe often gets his lessons from Feluda himself. In many cases, Feluda tests his deductive knowledge and he usually passes the test satisfactorily.
To mention a few, he and Jatayu a. The last incident impressed Feluda as well. However, all these activities mainly comes in the latter part of the series. He also interrogated the suspects in Apsara Theaterer Mamla when Feluda was sick and bed-ridden. Feluda solved the case just from the report of that interrogation. Jatayu makes his first appearance in Sonar Kella joining Feluda and Topshe in the train at Kanpur , on their way to Jodhpur. In the first two films on Feluda, which were directed by Ray himself, the character was played by Santosh Dutta , and after the first one, Ray modified the literary character to some extent, making him look and behave quite like Dutta himself.
Jatayu also has a fantasy of collecting weapons. Jatayu lives at Garpar in Kolkata, and it may be recalled that Satyajit Ray himself passed his childhood at , Garpar. He is a bibliophile , and has an extensive base of general knowledge, current and historical affairs. His vast knowledge comes from his collection of varied kinds of newspaper clippings which he has accumulated over the years.
He is a loyal, intelligent and reliable person and is of great help when needed. He played a crucial role in Gorosthaney Sabhdhan where he saved the lives of Feluda, Jatayu, and Topshe.
He has been compared to Professor Moriarty of the Sherlock Holmes series. After him Mohan Agashe played this character two times in telefilms. Maganlal lives in Benaras. He has a house in Joka, Kolkata also. He is officially a money-lender but is involved in smuggling artifacts, narcotics through Indo-Nepal border and jewellery.
His Kolkata house had been raided once but he escaped any charges until Feluda caught him red-handed in smuggling an invaluable Ganesh Murti an idol of the elephant god during the case of Joi Baba Felunath. However, he was not behind bars for a long time. In the nineteenth book, Jato Kando Kathmandute, Feluda said that he was not at all surprised seeing Meghraj out of jail as that was nothing for such an influential person.
Once again he was arrested in charge of murder and smuggling, yet he averted any long term punishment and we saw him once again in the thirty-first story, Golapi Mukta Rahasya. Maganlal is a good judge of human character. He also has a special interest in humiliating Jatayu. In Joi Baba Felunath he made Jatayu the subject of a knife-throwing play. In his third appearance, he made Jatayu to sing a Tagore song which Jatayu said his first time experience of singing a song.
During these three stories, we see many accomplices of Maganlal. Dibakar and Manohar. Maganlaal has his own Bajra by which he travels in Ganga near Benaras. The door of his house in Benaras is painted with figures of two swordsmen. During the making of the movie, Joi Baba Felunath , this swordsmen were painted by Satyajit Ray himself.
During the shooting of both these films, dangerous events took place, resulting in arrest of a producer in one film Bombaiyer Bombete and arrest of an actor in another film Darjeeling Jamjomat. Minor characters[ edit ] Srinath is the domestic help of Feluda and Topshe. He is often seen serving tea for Feluda and his clients.
He is also a good cook of Bengali food. Lalmohan Babu often describes him as a great poet who did not get the adulation he deserved. There is no presence of him in the story but in some stories we can see Jatayu reciting his poems. Feluda series[ edit ] In the Feluda series there are 35 published and four unpublished stories. The list is chronologically arranged. Color key.
