A rib-tickling comedy about a group of spirits who, in their various idiosyncrasies, try and save their only haunt, their resting place, when some unscrupulous builders try and break it down to build a modern monstrosity.
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. Written by

A fantastic and sarcastic preview of the land of Bengal including its governance.
Its just not a comedy.Its something more than that.It is a mockery of the present system of Indian governance.
Though made in 1980, still carries the same message that has been true through ages.The message being that the government is not always right and the masses are not always wrong.
However at the same time, it also makes us belief that through the line of non violence and education and countless discussions, amendments can be made even in the governance.
The ending bears a special mention where after "the brain wash" session, even the King (read government) and his people (read Government Babus) comes and joins the general masses to break the larger than life statue of the king (read clears the dirt that has coagulated in the minds of the people who run our system).
This certainly is a thought much ahead of time, which signifies that through proper education and perseverance, we can evolve the conscious of the people who run the system and violence and killings are not the only medium to demand justice and ask for proper governance.
