Joi Baba Felunath (The Elephant God)
Felu (Soumitra Chatterjee) is a detective whose vacation is interrupted when a priceless statue of an elephant god is stolen. Suspects include a local gangster, a nervous bodyguard, a disgruntled servant, and a fence who masquerades as a holy man. Chatterjee plays the character with reserve and occasional humor in this twisting detective story written and directed by Satyajit Ray. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A detective yarn, much like a Charlie Chan vehicle, is skillfully directed by India's legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Overall, Joi Baba Felunath is very enjoyable and well constructed. For Satyajit Ray fans, its a welcome sight to see him return to the banks of the Ganges---the same location so prominent in Aparajito."
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
