2015 South Asian Film Festival: The World of Goopi & Bagha
The South Asian Film Festival will present The World of Goopi & Bagha.
Goopi, a singer, and Bagha, a drummer, are expelled from their villages, when their communities can no longer bear their out-of-tune music. The two bump into each other in a forest, where they decide to perform together. Pleased with their performance, the ghost of the forest grants them four wishes.
Goopi and Bagha ask for their music to be appreciated, food upon request and the ability to travel as and when they desire. The fourth wish is saved for a future emergency. They seek refuge in the Shundi kingdom, when the king receives a warning of an imminent attack by his twin brother, the king of Hundi. Goopi and Bagha resolve to help Shundi’s king and use the power of their newly-acquired musical talent to avert war.
The film will be preceded by the short film Ravi & Jane.
