There is perhaps no greater Bengali detective series than the famed writer and Oscar-winning director Satyajit Ray's Feluda (ফেলুদা) series. From his humble abode in 21 Rajani Sen Road, Ballygonj, Kolkata, Feluda or Prodosh Chandra Mitra, (প্রদোষ চন্দ্র মিত্র) becomes a celebrated private investigator over a series of 35 novels and short stories, traveling all over India and beyond with his cousin and ever present "satellite" Topshe (Tapesh Ranjan Mitra) and his lighthearted but dependable friend Jatayu (Lalmohan Ganguly). Replete with drama, suspense, intriguing characters and Ray's unique brand of quaint humor, Feluda stories always hold a class of their own. Starting from Feludar Goendagiri in 1965, there have been 35 complete stories which include full-length novels and short stories and 2 unfinished stories, many of which have been turned into feature films for both the big screen and television. These have included such luminaries as Soumitra Chatterjee and Sabyasachi Chakrabarty and have been directed both by Satyajit Ray's son Sandip Ray and Satyajit Ray himself. Even after half a century of the publication of the first Feluda, the series still earns new fans every day.
