This is the third part of a series of trivia quizzes on Feluda films and stories. The first and second quizzes were on specific books and films. We will return to the other stories and films in subsequent quizzes, but this one is on characters in the Feluda films (from Sonar Kella to Tintorettor Jishu). We hope you enjoy this set of questions as much as the others.
