The World Of Goopi And Bagha

Goopi Gawaiyaa Bagha Bajaiyaa (Hindi)

India | 78 min | Comedy, Musical | 2013 | Feature Film (Animation)

Goopi&Bagha are two wise fools, one lives to sing and the other to play the drum. Despite their acute ineptness, their passion for music knows no bounds. When the villagers cannot bear to listen to them anymore, both are banished to the same forest. Here, Goopi&Bagha encounter each other and their fates become entwined for life. A strong and immediate bond is forged by the two hapless souls, both in search of connoisseurs of their musical craft

গোপি এবং বাঘা দুজন বোকা বন্ধু, একজন জীবিকার জন্য গান গায় এবং অন্যজন ঢাক বাজায়। এই কাজে তারা ভীষণভাবে কাঁচা হলেও,গানের জন্য তাদের উৎসাহ এর কোনো কমতি ছিলো না। গ্রামবাসী যখন আর তাদের সহ্য করতে পারলো না, তাদেরকে বনবাসে পাঠিয়ে দিলো। একটি দৃঢ় এবং তাৎক্ষনিক বন্ধন গড়ে উঠে দুটি অসহায় আত্মার মধ্যে, যারা দুজনেই খুঁজতে থাকে একজন পণ্ডিতকে।

They sing and play together to celebrate their newfound friendship only to be surrounded by melancholic ghosts who they manage to enchant with their peculiar musical talent. As a gift, they acquire four boons from the king of ghosts, using these they can always be well fed, transport themselves anywhere in an instant and mesmerize anyone with their music, albeit only together and in ‘jugalbandi’. One boon is still owed to them, this would be granted by the ghost king when they need to use it.
