    • Synopsis
    • The second film based on Ray’s Feluda detective stories, The Elephant God
      is an entertaining and fast paced adventure comedy featuring Soumitra Chatterjee as the witty and resourceful detective who solves crimes with his superb analytical ability and observation skills.
      When Feluda and his cousin arrives in the city of Benares for a vacation, they are roped in to solve the theft of a precious gold statue of Ganesha, a family heirloom handed down from a former king of Nepal. Feluda befriends Riku, a young boy who helps him uncover vital clues to solve the mystery of the missing statue.
      Featuring a cast of colourful characters with a climax set on the Ganges, The Elephant God is a rousing and terrific companion piece to Ray’s earlier Feluda adventure, The Golden Fortress
