ZEE5 Global, the world’s largest streaming platform for South Asian content, announced the world digital premiere of its latest film, Hatyapuri. Starring popular actor Indraneil Sengupta as the famous sleuth Feluda, the upcoming mystery thriller is based on legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray’s novel Hatyapuri. With the launch of this title, the platform further grows its crime and detective library which has been widely viewed and appreciated by consumers across the globe.
Directed and written by Sandip Ray, the high-octane mystery thriller also features Paran Banerjee, Sandip Chakraborty, and Debnath Chatterjee in pivotal roles. The edge-of-the-seat whodunnit will premiere on ZEE5 Global on 2nd June.
Hatyapuri Feluda follows Pradosh C. Mitter, aka Feluda, his nephew, Topshe, and close friend, Lalmohan Ganguly, on their vacation to the coastal city of Puri in Odisha. However, their plans change when the trio spots odd footprints on the sand one evening. Later, Lalmohan Babu goes to meet an astrologer who is presumably gifted with extrasensory perception to get more clarity. Things start getting bloody soon after they get involved in a murder in the city during their stay.
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global said, “At ZEE5 Global, we believe in offering our viewers varied and thought-provoking storylines by continually amping our libraries across 18 languages. Our Bengali library, one of the highest consumed globally, has been offering viewers new and compelling stories across genres and formats told by master storytellers. With the world digital premiere of our upcoming release Hatyapuri, we further amplify our offering with an all-new crime drama based on legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray’s novel.

Director Sandip Ray said, “ I have always been inspired by my father’s literary creations, and over the years I have been keen to introduce them to viewers in newer forms and formats. Hatyapuri has been a personal favourite and I knew that this was a story that had to find a way to the audiences and I am glad that OTT has given me this opportunity. This gripping thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat as the characters keep surprising you for more. Excited to collaborate with ZEE5 Global to take this exciting adventure of Feluda to our global viewers.”
Actor Indraneil Sengupta said, “Nothing excites me more than playing Feluda in Satyajit Ray’s universe! Sandip sir has brought out the character in a very nuanced way, and I had to ensure I do justice to him. Feluda is an iconic character and I hope the viewers like our approach and freshness towards this story.”
