Bankelal is a fictional comic book character, that appears in comic books published by Raj Comics. He is presented as the "Hasya Samrat"(King of comedy).

Origin[edit]

Bankelal first appeared in the comic book 'Bankelal Ka Kamaal'.[1] According to the book, he is the son of a farmer named 'Nanku'. His mother's name was 'Gulabati'. The couple didn't have any children. Gulabati was a devotee of Lord 'Shiva' and a child was offered to them as a blessing from the Lord. They named the child Bankelal.

Plot summary[edit]

Most of the stories of the series are of only one issue. Most issues start with Bankelal knowing a secret or something which he may use to kill king Vikram Singh and usurp the throne. Story develops further with the involvement of sages, yogis, Devi-Devtas and Rakshas, each of whom comes with incredible humorous twist to the story. In the end all the trickries of Bankelal fail and Vikram Singh gets a lot of favour rather than harm. Though there are some issues that are linked to each other like series in which Bankelal and Vikram Singh travel to different lokas(worlds). This series includes issues such as Bankelal Tataiyalok Me, Kankaallok Me, Dev lok me, Sarplok Me,Vanarlok Me etc.[2]

Attributes[edit]

One day Lord Shiva visited Bankelal's home with his consort Parvati. His mother offered them a glass of milk unaware that her naughty child had put a frog in the milk ! When Lord Shiva discovered this he put a curse on Bankelal that if ever Bankelal tried to harm anybody, the person would be blessed with good results and some part of that would also be 'rubbed' on to Bankelal.

Powers and abilities[edit]

Bankelal seems extremely stupid but he possesses a mind of devil,always planning mischief.But due to the"blessed" curse placed on him,every bad that he wants to do turns out to be good, turning the odds in his favour. other than that, he has nothing, not even a good face, and only a silly charlie chaplin styled moustache and his 2 buck teeths always coming out when he screams or when he laughs. The good thing is that his every misdeed(mischief) acts as a funny tickle bone for the readers.

Family, friends, and allies[edit]

Rani Swarnalata. Wife of maharaj Vikram Singh. Bankelal has a horse named Chetak which is another very funny character in comics series.Some notable guest appearances in Bankelal series includes Tilismdev and Bhokal.

Enemies[edit]

Bankelal considers Raja Vikram Singh as his arch enemy. Bankelal always tries to kill him (never managed so far) and become the king of Vishalgarh. Mohak Singh, the prince of Vishalgarh is quite aware of his evil plans. Other courtiers are also jealous of Bankelal's popularity. These include Senapati Markhap, Prabandh Mantri and many others. Some nearby princely states of Vishalgarh also find it hard to kill Vikram Singh until Bankelal is with him.
