Sandip Ray adapts his father Satyajit Ray’s series of detective tales in this film about Prodosh Mitter — aka Feluda (Sabyasachi Chakrabarty) — and his task to take down a group of crooks, headed by Chattoraj (Dipankar Dey), who are illegally trafficking artifacts. With antiques at stake from the Kailash Temple in the Ellora Caves, Feluda, his nephew (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) and a writer (Bibhu Bhattacharya) team up to outsmart Chattoraj.

Ray went on to praise Sandip saying that he was “the best assistant that I have ever had”. His own directorial debut was in the year 1983, with the classical children’s fiction, Phatik Chand, which told the endearing story of a child kidnapped from his home and his adventures after he loses his memory in an accident. The film went on to receive an award at the International Children’s Film Festival in Vancouver.
