Satyajt Ray has always been revered at home and abroad as a true maestro but (especially in the West) it has been his serious cinema that have been the focus of all adulation and admiration. It is little known outside of his native Bengali community his equal brilliance at writing short stories and novels for children, including the creation of two of Bengali modern literature’s most loved characters – Feluda and Professor Shonku.It is in this first screen adaption of one of his popular Feluda stories – Sonar Kella, that we see how far the man’s creative dexterity really extended. I remember seeing this film when very young and till date it remains evergreen in my memory, so much so that when I think back on the very many memorable moments from it, my subconscious extracts images from how it appeared on the cinema screen, rather than on TV – this in-spite of numerous repeat viewings on broadcast,video and now DVD. That is saying a lot for the indelible first impressions that this movie made on me.Like most great directors, Ray was blessed with a special empathy and “connect” that enabled him to extract remarkably natural performances from children, even very young ones – this is never more manifest in any of his other movies(with the notable exception of his first – The Song of the Road), especially in the scene when a child actor, playing a bit part, recounts his experiences while being mistakenly kidnapped and held captive instead of the main protagonist – completely mindblowingly natural. Apart from the great background score (composed by ray himself),technical polish,perfect casting,great performances,superb editing and cinematography, this film stands out for the outstanding,larger than life portrayal of the state of Rajasthan(almost like a character) and it’s unique natural beauty and romanticism,characterized by deserts,camels,forts,peacocks,steam engines,mystery men and vibrant colours. This lent the movie a Hollywood summer blockbuster action/adventure sheen, which has never before or since been achieved in Bengali cinema. Brilliant!!!
one of the most entertaining films I have ever seen
This is an excellent film. Satyajit Ray’s genius is evident in each and every scene. The characters are portrayed beautifully. Soumitra Chatterjee is superb as ‘Feluda’. One of my favorites is Kamu Mukherji as Mandar Bose. The range of emotions shown and the comic touch in his actions and dialogue are excellent. The change in his facial expression when he is trying to match Mukul’s face with his photograph in the train is amazing.
Of course, everyone’s darling Santosh Dutta as “Jatayu” is very good too. He portrays the average Bengali babu’s role to perfection. “Topshe’s” role as a eager and jovial teenager is well suited too.
The transitions between scenes are very nice – they help maintain the pace of the film. The background music leaves a beautiful impression. You may need to watch the film more than once to notice the subtle connections between certain dialogues and visual clues.
The dialogues are crisp and delivery is fantastic. Unfortunately, you would need to know the Bengali language to fully enjoy their impact – the loss in translation is inevitable.
Not one moment in the film is boring – if you want to be entertained as well as intellectually stimulated – this film is for you. Needless to say, I have watched it many times and I have a copy in my personal collection.
