International Response

The characters of Goopi and Bagha are written with such fluency that it’s hard to believe that they’re physically animated characters. Two outcasts find each other in a forest and thus begins an everlasting friendship. The music is absolutely fabulous. All the songs are melodious and the singers have done a terrific job of combining effortlessly with the instruments. The lyrics have profound meanings and play the most important part of creating the state of trance for the warriors of the two warring kingdoms.

Before I say anything about the movie, can I just applaud director Shilpa Ranade first, to have thought of remaking a Satyajit Ray classic that has been loved by generations. And such a mammoth task of re-doing it for the current generation – why would one do that? The only answer to that is immense love for the source. And that love shows in Ranade’s adaptation of Goopi and Bagha’s tale, titled Goopi Gawaiya Bagha Bajaiya.

The film has a very old school animation feel to it, with caricatured hand-drawn depictions of the characters. It communicates a universal message of peace and brotherhood that is very applicable in light of current political dynamics in the western part of the world. Goopi Gawaiya Bagha Bajaiya is an animation film that is both for kids and adults. If you are familiar with Satyajit Ray’s original work, it is likely you will enjoy this adaptation even more.
