Sonar Kella has a lot of firsts attached to it – My first book that I read in Bengali, My first Detective film of my life, My first tryst with the splendid world of Feluda ….
Have seen it more than 20 times since then, and it doesnt stop from amazing me even now. The story, the treatment, the technique, everything. Standout being the fact that the book was effortlessly converted to film, without compromising on its thrilling intensity as it is in the book (Something that even the likes of Da Vinci Code, Kite Runner etc. havent been able to achieve).
The casting never got better for any Feluda movie – Soumitra, Santosh Dutta et al.
