Feluda (http://en.wikipedia .org/wiki/ Feluda) aka Prodosh C. Mitter is the fictional detective created by Satyajit Ray, and is the protagonist of two of his fillms and thirty five novels and short stories. He is an iconic character in the world of Bengali literature and 'Feluda Pherot' marks the return of the much loved sleuth for its second ever stage adaptation.
It is the first ever non-canonical work based on a Ray created character either for the stage or for the screen. At one level, 'Feluda Pherot' is a gripping murder mystery with a twist in the tail. At another level, it is a philosophical classic deconstructing the alternative norms of good and evil, as personified by Feluda and his Moriarty-like arch rival, Maganlal Meghraj.
The form of the play also deviates at points from conventional proscenium - it has projected video clippings in a parallel narrative, elements of Third Theatre, suggestive rather than explicit sets, elements of the age-old Bengali folk tradition of 'Jaatraa' or 'Paalaa Gaan' retrofitted in the contemporary context, silhouetted use of choreographed Contemporary Dance Movements and a dedicated soundtrack.
This play also marks the collaboration between film personalilities from Kolkata and theatre workers from Bangalore.
