Movie Info

In this children's film, India's foremost director Satyajit Ray tells the story of Mukul, whose prolific drawings appear to relate to a previous life as they depict things and places he has never seen. Together with a parapsychologist, he attempts to discover the site of this previous incarnation. Because his quest for this place (a site encrusted with gold and jewels) is reported in the paper, a group of thieves follow along. Luckily for Mukul, a private detective, mindful that people like this might latch onto the boy, is also following him.

Audience Reviews for Sonar Kella

Ray's first "Felunath" detective story (the other one being Joi Baba Felunath) is a real hoot. Suprisingly suspenseful and exciting with fairly intricate plotting and engaging characters. Some of the humor was lost on me because it depended on linguistic oddities, but for the most part it works beautifully. Not a typical Ray film by any means (except for Soumitra Chatterjee), but a fun one.
