Storyline

The musician duo of Goopi Gayin and Bagha Bayin make a comeback in this sequel, where they are invited to the court of the Hirak Raja (Diamond King), for their musical skills. They have to perform at the kingdom's Jubilee Celebrations. But coming to the kingdom, they use their natural goodness and curiosity to find out that all is not well in the kingdom. There is exploitation of poor farmers and diamond-miners. There are sycophant courtiers and ruthless armies. And there is a mad scientist with this Brain-washing machine. With the help of an upright school-master, Goopi and Bagha set out to correct the evils... with the help of their ghost-given skills, fast thinking and an impish sense of humour.

An amazing bengali film that makes the youngest child, and the oldest person laugh.
22 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing movie. Then again, I grew up with the songs of the trilogy. It was amazing, and a must see for people who haven't seen it.

The Rajah is so funny at times, you just laugh along with him. Goopy and Bagha are amazing in their roles, and the slippers that take them anywhere crack me up. They eat whatever they want, when the sing, the world stops. Its amazing. A must see for the whole family.

As a director, Satyajit Ray outdid himself, and he made a timeless classic for people of all ages. I laughed, and I laughed. Its an AMAZING comedy.

The effects are also really good for that time period. Ray is a magician with movies, screenplay, and effects. This movie is a stellar example of that.
