Hatyapuri (2022) Bengali Movie Review: Story

The trio Feluda (Indraneil Sengupta), Topshe (Ayush), and Jatayu (Abhijeet Guha) went to Puri where they met manuscript-obsessed DG Sen (Paran Bandopadhyay). Someone steals one manuscript from him and Feluda is appointed to solve the mystery. Will Feluda be able to find the manuscript?

Performances & Analysis

It is hard to believe that a director like Sandip Ray has come up with a movie like Hatyapuri which is not at all convincing. Only Indraneil Sengupta as Feluda looks okay in parts. Abhijit Guha as Jatayu and Ayush Das as Topshe were completely wasted. The background score deserves a mention for the good work but the editing was forgetful.

Paran Bandopadhyay, Shaheb Chatterjee, Bharat Kaul, and Subhasish Mukherjee delivered decent performances with their respective characters.

In 2021, Director Srijit Mukherji launched actor Tota Roy Chowdhury as Feluda in the web series Feluda Ferot and the audiences showered their love on him. And, in 2022, Director Sandip Ray introduces us to Indraneil Sengupta as Feluda in his latest mystery thriller Hatyapuri.

Other than Tota Roy Chowdhury and Indraneil Sengupta, the actors who have portrayed the character of Feluda till date are Soumitra Chatterjee, Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Shashi Kapoor, Abir Chatterjee, Ahmed Rubel, & Parambrata Chatterjee.

The trio Soumitra Chatterjee, Santosh Dutta, and Siddhartha Chatterjee as Feluda, Jatayu, & Topshe respectively created the magic together on-screen which we won’t forget. 

Thereafter, Sabyasachi Chakraborty featured in Baksho Rahasya, Bombaiyer Bombete, Kailashey Kelenkari, Tintorettor Jishu, Gorosthaney Sabdhan, Royal Bengal Rahashya, & Double Feluda. His performance and collaboration with Sandip Ray were appreciated by audiences & he became the most loved Feluda in the Industry.

Final Words:

Director Sandip Ray’s mystery thriller Hatyapuri looks okay in the last 30 minutes of the movie but it lacks the thrill and sufficient elements to keep you engaged.
