Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne, directed by the late Satyajit Ray and based on a story by Upendra Kishore Ray, is a popular Bengali children’s film. It is sometimes released in the English-speaking world as The Adventures Of Goopy And Bagha. It is one of Satyajit Ray’s few films with an abundance of musical numbers.
According to Ray, the film was made as a request from his son who had encouraged him to make a film specifically for a younger audience. Adapting the story “Goopy Bagha,” which was written by his grandfather Upendra Kishore Roychowdhury, Ray wrote the screenplay and also composed the songs and music for the film. Working with source material already familiar to audiences, especially in Bengal, Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne has become one of Ray’s most well-known and successful films in India, but remains one of his least-seen or known films elsewhere in the world.
