Motu Patlu Wiki

Dr. Jhatka comes up with an idea

Dr. Jhatka (Hindi: डॉ. झाटका) is a scientist who resides in Furfuri Nagar. He owns a laboratory where he usually creates new gadgets.

He likes to find guinea pigs for his experiments and Motu usually becomes one. Ghasitaram also works with him in the lab as an assistant and co-worker. He is also a PhD doctor but does not treat his patients well so they run away from him.

Mostly Motu or Patlu land in trouble due to his gadgets. He then has to make an antidote for them. Motu calls him Bare Bhaiya (which means "brother"). He also has a flying car. He gives his gadgets to Motu and Patlu (or various uses), Chingum (to arrest criminals), and the army (to help them fight better). He is voiced by Saurav Chakraborty, although he was initially voiced by Omi Sharma.

He was touring European countries such as Italy, France, UK, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Albania, etc...

Nowadays he is Touring All over India. He is shown in Taj Mahal, Gateway of India, Tea estates of Assam, Kerala Backwaters, Hawa Mahal, Qutub Minar, Victoria Memorial, etc...

He has a sister who lives in Agra. She comes in the episode Missing Dog (Indian Tour)


Jhatka has a receding hairline, he wears a green shirt, violet necktie, blue jeans and brown shoes with olive straps. He is in his mid-to-late forties.

In the newer episodes of Motu Patlu, he wears a violet shirt, a yellow shirt, a green tie, and brown pants.


Dr. Jhatka is a generous and helpful person who also knows English. He can get angry when Motu messes with his experiments. He is also wise and logical but not as much as Patlu. Though he is a good friend of Motu and Patlu, his bond of friendship is not strong enough, and when Motu and Patlu land in trouble with the law, he will not help them. Dr. Jhatka is also quite religious as he applies "oppor wale" into many things he says. He also had Motu Patlu pray in "Pilot Training" when they were in danger. He often forgets his wide inventory of things which he carries with him on important missions and often gets beaten up by Motu, Patlu, Chingum, and Ghasitaram for this. Dr. Jhatka deeply values science, considering nothing else to be bigger and greater than science.

Powers and Abilities

Dr. Jhatka and Ghasitaram are very close. They have been seen to work together in competitions. Ghasitaram and Dr. Jhatka work together in his lab. Ghasitaram often helps Dr. Jhatka by using his charisma and acting skills to convince Motu to try one of Dr. Jhatka's inventions.
