Calcutta, Dec 23, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) Certain filmmakers believe in aggressively marketing their movies simply to ensure a decent opening at the box-office. A smaller and more elite group of directors do not believe in overt publicity gimmicks and are quietly confident in the quality of the films they make. Sandip Ray, one of premier members of the latter group of movie-makers, has always made it a point that his films would be low on cheap promotional stunts and rich in terms of content and style. Indeed, his expertise and eye for detail have immensely helped ‘Brand Feluda’ attain the immensely popular stature that it currently enjoys. While there have been odd aberrations (read: ‘Tintoretor Jishu’), Ray’s movies about the master detective have generally been well-crafted and quite brilliantly portrayed onscreen.

From the very day the director announced that he would be making ‘Royal Bengal Rohosso’, the anticipation and expectation about the film among cine-goers had been sky-high. So, has ‘Feluda’ been able to create magic yet again? Well, in most parts!
