A special gift for child viewers that also becomes a coherent masterpiece for movie lovers..
12 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

It is one of the greatest as well as, one of the most under-rated masterpiece in the history of cinema (comparing its overseas success w.r.t other notable Ray films). Handling of characterizations, simplicity, political undertones, musical sensibility and the masterly crafted visual aspects not only makes it a special gift for child viewers but also becomes a coherent masterpiece for movie lovers.

It is the adventure of goopy the singer and bagha the drummer, both driven out from their kingdom because of their horrible musical cacophony, got three boons from the king of ghost and froze everyone by their music. The rest is their terrific story that tells the the music of humanity and gracious peace. All the actors, Tapen Chatterjee, Rabi Ghosh and specially Santosh Dutta gave astounding performances. And then it is Satyajit Ray, the god of cinema, has shown how beautifully a musical which is so much Indian, can be made ....all the song are so pure,freshening and lastly so deep to the roots. Many important social aspects are presented by simple and linear narratives. Even the visual stunts for ex. dancing shadows of demons (a masterly choreographed sequence), sequences when gopy and bagha moved to their desired places by clapping or the war song where sweets appear on the sky and fell on ground is starling and fresh even in Today"s intricate visual effect era.

Lastly handling of emotions, for instances the sequence where raja of Amloki drove goopy out leaving only his father in tears and despair whereas, the villagers were having fun, or fist song "dekho re" where goopy overjoyed in disbelief hearing his own voice, or the king of halla who ran in joy at the last scenes because of his freedom, will surely touch your heart. And if you see the movie carefully, u can always feel the influence of it in a deep subconscious level. Evil surrounds a major part of the human mind and beyond desire and greed all of us ultimately want to be free and happy!! Honestly speaking the movie is like a dream where the characters have become strong enough to go above bindings of anger and greed and say so simply the futility and stupidity of war.......three boons of king of ghost came out to be the boons that every human crave for......watch it not only for cinematic experience but also for its gracious humanism that is surely going to move you.....................
