Hi Ataul and welcome to poll authoring! 

I've never seen any of those films but one The Golden Fortress is on my "to-see" list. Would you recommend them all?

Dan recommended some helpful information; if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :-).  Linking back to this thread can seem a bit confusing at first but it's simpler than it seems.

Oh, and I suggest using the title that you use on this discussion thread for the list that you made. The poll is made directly from that list, so whatever you say on the list is what will show up if it becomes a poll. So a good poll title would be something like "Who is the Best Onscreen Feluda?" (And Feluda doesn't need to be in single quotes: single quotes are used to designate movie titles.)

Hello rubyfruit76,
Thanks for your reply.

If you want to see how Satyajit Ray envisioned Feluda then I would recommend The Golden Fortress (1974) and  Joi Baba Felunath: The Elephant God (1979) as he himself directed them with Soumitra Chatterjee as Feluda.

My personal choice for Feluda is Sabyasachi Chakraborty (I). You might give one his movie a go as most movies he featured are directed by Satyajit's son Sandip Ray. His rugged facial feature along with the way he portrays Feluda is how I always pictured Feluda while reading the books. One thing I always wonder is How a Feluda film would have turned out with Sabyasachi as Feluda and Satyajit as director. We will never know. sigh.

Parambrata Chatterjee is experimenting with a modern Feluda in the new TV series that he is directing. A slight deviation from the original story but would love to find out the outcome.

Thanks again and do share how you feel about the Feluda films when you see them.

Hello everyone,
IMDb poll newbie here. Thanks to all, Dan Dassowrubyfruit76Dibyayan Chakravorty and bratface23 for your input. I think I got the idea of what I need to do, hopefully.
I have created a new people list and will update my poll suggestion with that list. Let me know if I need to correct anything else. 
Once again, thanks for your help.

AK,

Please post your list's URL here on this thread.

And I hope this is not the list - http://www.imdb.com/list/ls062810291/

Because in this case, this should be a 'People' list.

IMDb Polls' titles follows AP Style (Title Capitalization). You can see the proper format for your list's title from here - http://titlecapitalization.com/
Just copy-paste the title here.

You'll see - Best Onscreen Feluda Ever

Please change your list's title to the above.

========================

Now please add a suitable straight forward description/question to your list. Like this:

Feluda is a versatile detective character created by Satyajit Ray. Who do You think Portrayed Feluda the best on the screen?

(You missed the question mark)

=========================

It'll be best if you add the name of the films in which they appeared as Feluda under each option.

For example:

Soumitra Chatterjee

In the description of the option where you've already written "Satyajit Ray himself choose him as Feluda.", write the following:

Credits include:

1. Sonar Kella

2. Joi Baba Felunath

==========================

IMDb Polls follow Bulletin Board Code. This is how the BB Codes work - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode. Please bookmark this link on your PC. This'll help you in future.


For example:

Sonar Kella will be written as [link=tt0072190]

Joi Baba Felunath will be written as [link=tt0077775]

This will be displayed in the IMDb List as clickable link.

Hey Ataul, your list looks really good! And you got the "link-back" (in the intro of the list, the link back to this thread) -- that is always the most difficult thing for newbies and you got it quickly. Bravo!

You've already put so much work into this, but if you want to take it one step further, I'd suggest giving the English names, along with the original titles. For example: 

Sonar Kella / The Golden Fortress

By the way, poll-making gets easier, I promise. : )

Thanks rubyfruit76, I wouldn't have been able to do anything without the help and advice everyone gave me. I have included English names (most of which I got from wikipedia) beside the original title as per your advice. Thanks again for your valuable input.

'No problem, I'm glad to help. When I first started, I would not have been able to get very far without people helping me, especially Peter, Dan, and two people who no longer make polls. Make sure to give yourself credit, though -- we're just helping a bit; you're still doing the work, and some newcomers give up, and you hung in there and created a well-made poll.

By the way, you. may be interested in seeing this:

If you scroll down to the 13th choice, you'll see an option that Dibyayan Chakravorty contributed to the poll -- his option involves Feluda. :-)

Hi Ataul Khan,

Please use lower case for "portrayed" in your question in your list.

Please change:
Who do You think Portrayed Feluda the best on the screen?

To:
Who do You think portrayed Feluda the best on the screen?

By the way, you are doing a good job as a first time poll author.
