Feluda - every Bengali wants to be him, emulate his mannerisms, think like him and solve crimes like him. He continues to be loved by one and all even as he turns fifty. Feluda @ 50 seeks to explore why. What makes Feluda tick? What is it that every Indian, at home and in the diaspora, loves about this man? Why is it that every Feluda film continues to run to packed houses for weeks and months on end and is a kind of lifeline to the Bengali film industry? The book seeks to delve deep into why Satyajit Ray created Feluda in the way he did, keeping him cocooned from the contemporary politics of the times and never allowing him to have a love interest. It dissects the importance of Feluda's sidekicks - Topshe and Lalmohan-babu - and is a must read for every Feluda fan across the world.
