Nomination Detail

Goopi and Bagha are two wise fools; one lives to sing and the other to play the drum. Despite their acute ineptness, their passion for music knows no bounds. When the villagers cannot bear to listen to them anymore, both are banished to the same forest. The two hapless souls sing and play together only to be surrounded by melancholic ghosts who they enchant with their peculiar musical talent. As a gift, they acquire four boons from the king of ghosts. They use three, but one boon is still owed to them and will be granted by the ghost king when they need to use it – and so begins the story of Goopi and Bagha.
